As much as I loved the book, the villian fell way too easy - a little more suspense at the end would have been good - the fire between Lise and Joshua was incredibly intense

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!

A good, fun read in a first book in the Mercenary series. The main characters are reluctantly drawn to one another, but as is predictable, they come together and with the exception of her stalker, women would love to meet a guy like this. Love the family relationship, her support system. We meet the characters of book 2, Willing and book 3, and Able. Their camaraderie makes you look forward to ready the other books. All three books are a good read for women and men equally.
