Book Description:

Ex-FBI agent Connor McCloud can never forget the day he was set up to die at the hands of trusted friend and fellow agent Ed Riggs. Hard justice and loyalty to his badge have cost Connor what he wants most--Ed's shy, studious daughter, Erin. He can never have her now, but her beauty still haunts and torments his every waking hour and his most fevered erotic dreeams. But now that his old enemy, Kurt Novak has returned, Connor is prepared to do anything to protect the vulnerable young woman from a killer who has vowed a brutal payback . . . a killer with a predator's lethal patience.

Erin has been harboring secret fantasies about Connor McCloud since she first laid eyes on him--but that was before his testimony sent her father to jail. Her world is falling apart and it's all she can do to hold her family together. But now Connor is knocking on her door, telling her she needs his protection, whether she wants it or not. He won't give up and he won't stay away. He's sworn to guard her life with his own and his fierce protectiveness awakens long-buried feelings--and a fiery sexuality deep within her soul . . .

Connor and Erin are very likeable characters, but I find Seth from Beyond Closed Doors a more likeable hero. Don't get me wrong, Connor is definitely heroic, but also obsessive. Granted, his paranoia is well-founded. Also, with everything that Erin went through with her father, she should have been a little more sympathetic to Connor's concerns. Despite my nitpicking, I really enjoyed the story and the loves scenes, and think Shannon McKenna is a great writer.

Thanks, Nou! I started a new job this week, nights 10 - 6, and it's been hard, to say the least. It made me smile to see this sitting on the table when I woke up.
