He was sent to guard her body… he didn’t expect her to steal his heart.
Her sister’s wedding was hardly the place to find a hook up, but after one look at friend-of-the-groom and special operative Josiah Grant, small-town Texas beauty Magnolia West immediately fell in lust. After a stunningly sensual night together, Maggie is prepared for the two of them to go their separate ways. After all, she’s not a happily-ever-after kind of girl. But Josiah—and danger—change her plans.
Josiah isn’t looking for love…but Maggie rouses his body and stirs his heart like no other woman. She’s got a rocky romantic past, and a smart man would steer clear. But when the murder quotient in Kendall County rises and all signs point to a mysterious group nearby who have been harassing Maggie’s family, he can’t leave her unprotected—especially when he realizes he’s fallen hard for her.
As tension mounts and the menace closes in, Josiah will do anything to prove to Maggie that their love is real…but can they stay alive long enough to share it?
Intrigue, suspense and a taming!
Devoted to Love is a standalone book in the Devoted Lovers series. First two books in the series focus on the guys at the EM Security company.
First book is focused on Cutter Bryant and actress, Shealyn West. Book 2 is Josiah Grant and Magnolia West's story. Maggie is Shealyns sister. The book starts out right with Maggie and Josiah meeting at her sisters wedding to Cutter.
As the wedding is located at Maggie and Shealyns grandparents farm, The guys of EM Security learn of the Enlightenment Fields people. These cult-like neighbors have been harassing the farmers to sell their lands next to them and there is some suspicion of foul play involved.
Josiah agrees to stick around after the wedding to look into this cult. If that gives him some time with Maggie, all the better. One look at Maggie and he was completely smitten. A few days and nights with her is just what he needs.
While Josiah tries to figure out what's going on with the cult, his crush on Maggie grows expediently. It's the last thing he wants or needs, but Maggie has gotten under his skin and he can't get her out. The same can be said for Maggie. Maggie has trust and commitment issues but Josiah may be the one man who can earn that trust.
With any small town setting, there are a lot of side characters that bring a lot to the story. With the danger that increases as the cult gets desperate for the neighboring lands, more EM security men come to lend a hand in Josiah's investigation into the cult. We get a few hints to possible new books in the series.
What to expect in Devoted to Love? Intrigue, suspense, and a wild heroine who needs tamed and a hero who looks forward to taming her.
This is the second book in the Devoted Lovers series and it is everything I hoped it would be. Shayla Black can write. She can do it by herself, she can do it with a partner, she rocks her characters, her stories and my world!!!! This story follows Devoted to Pleasure. It isn’t a have-to-read the first book but if you follow Shayla, you will definitely want to read all you can. We even have some other familiar characters pop in….
Maggie and Josiah are thrown together at the wedding of her sister and his best friend and associate. The are both in it for a night of fun and passion. But when danger starts showing up around the little town of Comfort, Josiah is the one man who isn’t going to risk Maggie or the family farm. Evil is all around and the surprises just keep coming…
Awesome read….definitely wanting more of this series….
Great addition to a great series
Shayla Black did not disappoint with this addition to this awesome series. Josiah and Maggie are so great together the chemistry is off the charts. I could not put this book down, plus the twists and turns kept me guessing. I normally can figures out what will happen but this one i didn’t. Of course this series you get to see updates on many of the other characters from previous books and that never gets old. I cannot wait for any other books in this series.
