The thrilling ninth installment in Walker’s Black Knights Inc. contemporary series (after Too Hard to Handle) is her best yet. Ethan “Ozzie” Sykes is a computer whiz, a member of a custom motorcycle business, and a rock-solid special ops expert whose difficult childhood left him doubting anyone could ever love him. Determined journalist Samantha Tate is a tough investigative reporter for the Chicago Tribune; deep down she’s a damaged little girl looking to avenge her father’s murder. Ozzie and Samantha spend years trying to ignore their attraction to each other until it bursts into a flame neither of them can ignore. But their happily-ever-after is far from assured when a rival motorcycle gang decides that Samantha knows too much about their inner workings to live. Ozzie tries to keep her safe and protect his heart, but risks abound. Walker writes super-sexy alpha heroes and feisty heroines whom readers will cheer for. This razor-sharp, sensual, and intriguing tale will get hearts pounding. Agent: Nicole Resciniti, Seymour Agency. (Apr.)
