Walking the Edge
On the knife edge of danger in the streets of New Orleans, these rugged men call the Big Easy home, and they'll do whatever it takes to protect their own.
Ex-army ranger Mitch Guidry never should have let his brothers talk him into joining them in the Big Easy. Particularly when they have him going head-to-head with the very last thing he needs: a feisty redhead who has more opinions than even his hard-headed brothers. Loyal and overprotective to a fault, Catherine Hurley will do everything she can to stop Mitch from finding her fugitive brother... and yet, he can't get enough of her.
Cath should be furious with the overbearing ex-ranger who shows up on her doorstep looking for her brother. Sure, Mitch Guidry is hotter than a Louisiana summer and pushes every one of her buttons, but he's also an immediate threat to her family, and family is everything to Cath. Unfortunately, the only way to save her brother is to stick to Mitch like glue. But sharing close quarters with him while they search for her missing brother together proves to be more than a little challenging…particularly when it comes to protecting her heart.
Sue Ward Drake takes you on a wild ride through the steamy streets of New Orleans in this action-packed, sexy romantic suspense!
Drake (Hear No Evil) opens her Danger in the Big Easy series with this gripping work of romantic suspense. Former Army Ranger Mitch Guidry's first job with his brothers' bounty hunter business is to track down fugitive Les Hurley. Mitch manages to corner Les at Les's sister Cath's New Orleans apartment but he escapes. Not wanting to let his brothers down, Mitch continues to question Cath, hoping she can help in his investigation. Cath, the owner of a ghost tour business, is shocked by this turn of events, and even more unnerved when a ruthless assailant begins targeting her, setting her apartment on fire and attempting to abduct her. Mitch helps her evade her would-be kidnapper and invites her to move in with him so he can keep her safe. As the hunt for Les intensifies and Cath's mysterious adversary continues to pursue her, the attraction between Mitch and Cath heats up and they both reveal secrets from their pasts. Their simmering sexual tension grows into a strong, convincing emotional bond in the face of adversity, and the vibrant background of Mardi Gras adds intensity to the action. Readers will be eager for the next in the series.
