Erotic Romantic Suspense by Maya Banks. Gray is a cop intent on finding his partner's killer. He takes a leave of absence, heads to Houston, to take a security job, where Faith works. The plan is to get close to Faith, because her mother is thought to be with the killer. Faith is actively searching for a Dominant man fulfill her most secret cravings. Gray is drawn to her, wants to get close to her for his own purposes, but doesn't want to hurt her. Pretty good story with exciting plot. The books doesn't get really steamy until well into the story, but the build up is good, and sex scenes steamy. Good Happily Ever After ending. Worth a credit.

And the moral of the story is... Don't lie to your lover!

This was a good read-once but not a keeper. BDSM erotica, although not hardcore and it actually has an action-oriented plot and somewhat interesting characters...

Sweet Persuasion is the next in the series.

If you like your men strong and demanding and your sex SUPER HOT then you'll really like this book! A couple of situations are a little unbelievable but then again it is fiction. I enjoyed this book. Looking forward to reading more from this author.

This was a great book. A keeper. I like the way the author built the romance, suspense, tension and then the hot, hot sex scenes.
Gray and Faith are a great pair.

This book was very good. It is labeled erotica but not too hard core for the lighter reader. I really liked the character Grey. You could see yourself falling for this guy. The situation at "The House" was kind of not believable but it led to a big change in the dynamic of the book so it was necessary. Big ending as usual with Maya Banks. She always makes you wait for the good stuff!

I was so eager to read this book and so disappointed when I finished it.

First of all, this book contains BDSM and ménage scenes which I was not aware of. Its just not my cup of tea and had I known this I wouldnt have wasted my time.

I also found the storyline to be drawn out, dull and unbelievable. The turn of events were so ridiculous that I found myself rolling my eyes and wishing the book was finished.

This book is not for the faint of heart! It is afterall "erotica". Good story.

This book lived up to my expectations. I enjoy reading books written by Maya Banks. Some bondage and good steamy love scenes, even a threesome. I know Maya Banks wrote another book with some of the same characters in it involving Damon finding the woman he's been lookin for too. Good story.

This was a lovely, well put together story. I enjoyed the simple, direct plot line and characterizations. I would keep it, but I have sooo little space!

A little slow at first but then it got pretty HOT between these two covers.
