He agreed to give her a ride out of town. She never told him someone was coming to kill her.
After three weeks in Manhattan, Kingdom Trahan is ready to get back to bayous, crawfish, and afternoons fishing on the Gulf. But even before he can pull out of the parking garage, he meets a curvy detour. King noticed Cady Kowalski on the photo shoot he just endured—sexy and confident, with a waifish look that belies the way she corralled him into submission using only a can of hairspray. Yet Cady isn't so confident now. She's bruised, edgy, and desperate to get out of town.
For years, Cady has been looking over her shoulder, wondering when the gang of drug runners who killed her brother would come after her. She's grown used to having no one to turn to or trust. But King isn't walking away—not even when their lives are threatened repeatedly. Drawing Cady's pursuers out of hiding is the only way to end the nightmare, and it's also the most reckless thing they can do, short of diving into a red-hot affair from which there's no turning back.

Kent's 11th erotic SG-5 thriller (after 2009's No Limits) doesn't feature that crime-fighting organization directly, but does showcase a related character, Kingdom "King" Trahan, a rich Louisiana model and ex-con who rescues wan makeup artist Cady Kowalski. King first meets Cady when the battered girl climbs into his Hummer, pleading for a ride out of town. When they stop by Cadie's apartment to pick up her things, Cady's roommate tries to shoot her, setting off King's protective instincts. Not surprisingly, a passionate attraction develops between them, and the suspense heats up similarly; as King and Cady avoid hit men and car bombs, King learns that Cady carries a heavy secret the part she played in her brother's death eight years earlier. Before long, the pair is recruited by a mysterious agent to catch one of their pursuers, who also had a hand in Cady's brother's death. As always, Kent's mix of thrills and romance is familiar but satisfying.
