Jolie Quinn is a woman in charge. Her no-nonsense attitude has made her a rising star in the fashion world and her brand a household name among the Dallas elite. Nothing will stop her from achieving her goals—not even the gorgeous British security contractor who seems just as interested in seeing her personal assets as he is in protecting her professional ones.
After a tragedy left him broken, Heath Powell made a rule of staying unattached. But Jolie challenges him in a way he can’t ignore, and he isn’t used to backing down from a confrontation—especially when the reward for winning could feel so good. As passion blazes between them, the stubborn, confident beauty arouses more than his desire. She touches his heart.
When a mysterious enemy threatens Jolie and her company, Heath is the only person Jolie can trust to help. But working with him to save her business might put her dangerously at risk of falling in love…
You cannot see me, but I am wearing black, for I am mourning. This is the end of the Wicked Lovers series and I am saddened. I have been with Shayla on this wickedly hot journey since Jack Cole spirited Morgan away to his cabin in the Bayou in Wicked Ties and brought her to that yummy play room.
I have loved every book, every character. Don’t ask for a favorite, because I have quite a few. Right down to hot MI5 agent Heath Powell and the sassy, control driven, fire cracker, Jolie Quinn. For being the last book in the series, this was done right, with two stand out characters. Both of them wanting to avoid relationships like a case of Hemmorhagic Fever. A threat to Jolie brings Heath closer and the results are hotter than the fireworks on the Fourth of July.
Heath is a sexy, dominant, Alpha male who knows how to handle Jolie’s anger and the walls she’s built against men. The ending of the book was wonderful, and you’ll need to read it to see what I mean. And methinks that new characters introduced along the way may just make it into a new series, so keep an eye out!
