A brand new, smoldering hot standalone romantic suspense novel from Jayne Blue.
Buttoned up C.P.A. Charlotte Marek has always lived her life by the numbers.
Charlotte - I’ve always taken the safe path. That’s suited me fine up until now. On the rebound from my cheating ex, I just wanted one night of no-strings-attached, toe-curling passion. When I met sexy as sin Ben in a local bar, his bad boy swagger seemed like the perfect balm for my broken heart. But, I soon realized one night with Ben will never be enough. When I find out he’s a cop, I know I need to cut him loose. Growing up as a cop’s daughter, I know all too well the heartache that goes along with loving one.
Strike Team Officer Ben Killian is used to living life fast and hard.
Ben - As part of Lincolnshire P.D.’s elite S.W.A.T. force, running toward danger isn’t just my job, it’s a rush. After the thrill of our latest drug raid, I’m more than down for a one-night stand with gorgeous Charlotte the second she offers. But, it doesn’t take long to realize this girl’s not like all the others I’ve been with. Charlotte’s bold, sexy, smart as hell, and she stirs my heart in ways I wasn’t looking for. If that’s not enough of a kick in the gut, it turns out she’s also the new Police Chief’s daughter. This time, my danger junkie lifestyle might just cost me my badge. But when that danger threatens to destroy the woman I love, I’ll have to be ready for the fight of my life.
Author’s Note - Each book in the Tortured Heroes series is a full length, standalone romantic suspense novel. They can be read in any order and DO NOT contain cliffhangers. They DO contain dark themes and elements.
Great story. I'd forgotten about the home invasions until the back door exploded.
