Lark Warren can never stay one person for too long, so when her past starts to catch up to her, she hops the first bus out of DC, steals a new name, and goes deep into hiding in New Orleans. Unfortunately, all it takes is the wrong set of eyes to blow her cover. Enter Vaughn—the man she once let get too close to her real self.
Ex-Navy SEAL Vaughn Wilde has one objective: drive Lark back to DC to face charges for identity theft—which would be easier if he could forget the three lust-filled weeks he shared with her before she disappeared. With each passing mile, he can’t ignore the heat still sparking between them…or the fact he has led her enemies right to her.
Lark can’t stay with Vaughn, not when it will put him in the crosshairs of the dangerous man she’s spent the last five years running from. But Vaughn is determined to keep her safe—even if it means she’ll run off with his heart all over again.
Each book in the Wilde Security series is a standalone story that can be enjoyed out of order.
Book #1 Wilde Nights in Paradise
Book #2 Wilde for Her
Book #3 Wilde at Heart
Book #4 Running Wilde
Book #5 Too Wilde to Tame
Another fantastic Wilde Security book!!!
Do you remember Lark and Vaughn? This is their story and it's fantastic. The attraction is still there but neither of them want it. In the beginning, all he thinks he wants is what she took from him when she skipped town. He doesn't want to want her. She left and broke his sister-in-laws heart. Lark's feelings run deep for Vaughn but her need to stay alive runs deeper. The HUGE plot twist really threw me. I love all the Wilde brothers and the women they have paired with but Sage/Lark really had me on the fence until the end. There's a lot of running, chasing, sexy...steamy scenes and some pretty amazing family moments. I am super excited to read the next book about Greer.

Judging a Book by it's Cover:
Holy crap level hot cover model, subdued colors. Synopsis is intriguing and catches the attention.
Third person POV.
Vaughn and Lark already know each other when Running Wilde begins. While this is the 4th book to the series, there's enough backstory given to allow it to stand on it's own, but the reader would greatly benefit from reading the series in order to obtain the full stories as the male characters are all brothers that work together, their stories are all tightly woven together. *Mild cross-over with the HORNET boys present.
Vaughn is a retired SEAL and twin to brother Cam. He and Lark, Libby's good friend, already have some history between them. While Vaughn's laid up in the hospital entertaining heartfelt, mushy feelings about Lark, Lark's past starts creeping up on her & she runs. Running Wilde picks up a few months after the explosion that laid Vaughn up and his continued quest to find Lark. He knows she's an identity thief, but does not know why. When he catches up to her, he seems to have a hard time keeping hold of her. Despite their explosive chemistry, she's running hard from something and he's determined to find out what. The dialogue is smart and witty, the interactions feel natural. The plot is exciting and entertaining. I'm amazed at the fluidity of the story. I felt like I'd just started the book and I was already nearing the end. It was incredible smooth and easy to read. The characters and plot were a pleasure to read. There were some conflicts and most were resolved in an efficient, mature manner although there were a few spots where I was not pleased with the heroine and her actions - but she earns points for not being a total helpless female. She's smart, resourceful and determined to survive, regardless the cost or sacrifice. I knew there was some kind of connection between her and [other party], but it wasn't until the reveal that I understood what that connection was. Other than that, predictability was nil. The conclusion is solid and was very appropriate. I am highly anticipating Greer's story, however I'm dreading it as it'll be the last of the Wilde boys. I look forward to it nonetheless. I do recommend this book, series, and author to any reader that is a fan of well-written Romantic Suspense featuring strong yet flawed alpha men that are not afraid to show their emotions to their loved ones and the smart and sassy women that complete them.
** Personal note: Holy Crap, I loved Vaughn! What a broody teddy bear!
