In this second book in the series, following Man Law, former Navy SEAL Peter Jessup never suspected a routine security install would introduce him to lawyer Isabelle DeRosa, an emotionally broken woman with both major sex appeal and major intimacy issues.
When Isabelle’s cousin Kendrick is murdered, the Feds send her undercover to his Ohio compound, now run by Kendrick’s business partner, Seth Donner, who claims to lead a charitable organization helping poor families. Seth’s disturbing and controlling behavior toward the young, pregnant women he shelters leaves no doubt that the compound is a front for something very perverse. Peter will protect Izzy at all costs, but Izzy’s determination to do whatever it takes to save these girls may just be too much for Peter to handle.
Although the plot is slow-going at first, readers will be rooting for Giordano’s flawed characters to prevail in this perfect blend of sexy romance and page-turning suspense. The next series installment is Risking Trust. The introduction of new characters allows each title to be enjoyed as a stand-alone.
