Dimon saturates this raunchy contemporary with enough sex to make a porn star blush, and the characters’ witty repartee and well-protected secrets do even more to grab the reader’s attention. After being abused, Natalie Udall joined the CIA, determined to never again be a helpless target. When she has to go into hiding from a deceitful fellow operative, she feels betrayed and victimized once again. Gabe MacIntosh, a military sniper turned security firm owner, has more patience than the average man, but when he’s brought in to help Natalie hide and stay safe, she rapidly pushes him to his limits. Unfortunately for him, it’s his intense attraction to her, not her controlling and demanding demeanor, that’s got him all hot and bothered. He can’t protect her if he’s in bed with her, and the last thing he needs is to get involved with her troubled life, especially since he has plenty of his own demons to battle. Too bad for him she’s as stubborn, and as passionate, as he is. Despite the military trappings, this isn’t romantic suspense, but a powerful erotic romance filled with strong trust and emotional development. Agent: Laura Bradford, Bradford Literary Agency. (Oct.)
