Lethal Nights by Lora Leigh #Review #Suspense #Contemporary

ABOUT THE BOOK:

Ilya Dragonovich is no stranger to the dark side. As a safe-house owner for security agency Brute Force, Dragon knows that the battle line between good and evil runs through the heart of every man—and, sometimes, a beautiful woman.

Emma Jane Preston needs help. After her marriage crumbled, she believed she could get back to a normal, happy life. But her ex-husband moved among some shady characters, and now she needs the kind of protection that comes at a cost—one that only someone like Dragon can provide. But can Emma Jane trust this handsome, undercover operator to keep her safe when she is in danger of falling into the arms of the deeply seductive, fiery Dragon. . .and never letting go?

My Review:

This is the third book in the Brute Force series but it is the first one that I’ve read and it still worked well as a standalone read. It is a very steamy, romantic suspense involving international conspirators in an action packed story.

Emma Jane Preston senses someone is in her home and takes refuge in her bath. That’s when the intruders break into her bedroom and shoot it up. Unharmed but traumatised by the experience, this feisty lady is determined not to endanger anyone else. That’s when Ilya Dragonovich turns up, adamant that he’s going to be her protection. They met a  year ago when he helped negotiate for her home to be used as a safe house for his company. The attraction between them was great but not acted upon. Now he’s back. Will he be able to resist her this time? Just who is out to kill her – and why?

This is a fast paced, action packed story that is an enthralling read. It has great characters, plenty of intrigue, murder, mystery, romance and suspense. The relationships in very different families are explored and the relationship between Emma and Ilya hints at paranormal elements and I’d love to see his dragon tattoo – it sounds amazing! The story has some very steamy scenes (too many for my tastes) but the overall plot is well developed and thoroughly enjoyable. If you enjoy steamy romantic suspense, stories packed with threats and danger as well as romance, look no further!

I requested and was gifted a copy of this book without obligation via NetGalley and this is my honest review after choosing to read it and enjoying doing so.
