This contemporary erotic romance by Lucy Monroe is the first in a trilogy. After "Ready," comes "Williing, and "And Able." Of course. I have all three but haven't finished reading the other two yet, so if someone is interested, please let me know.

Great start of the 3 book series, but wonderful on its own.

Lise is a writer who has somehow acquired a stalker. Moving from Texas to Washington state didn't shake him from her trail but she's hoping it's kept her brother, his wife and their new baby safe since they're still back down home. But in the meantime she's terrified and just barely coping. Her refusal to go home for Thanksgiving, however, and her inability to give her brother a reason he can understand churns up a bit of worry on the home front. Her sister-in-law's brother, Joshua, has decided that he's the reason she won't come home. He made a pass at her, one she didn't welcome, and is sure she's now avoiding him. But when he shows up on her doorstep and nearly gets beaned with a poker he realizes Lise is in trouble. As an ex-Army Ranger trouble is right up his alley and he immediately takes charge of the situation. She accepts his help, unwillingly at first and then gratefully, but works hard to prevent any physical involvement between them. He is willing to break his own rules and get involved physically but determined to avoid any emotional entanglement. The developing love affair between them heats up the pages well and the author keeps the pace swift. This is the first book of a trilogy and an enjoyable example of a modern action/romance.

I loved this entire series. Not ready to give up my copies yet though. Will read again.

Hot and steamy!
