Is he a hero…or the villain?
When Elizabeth Ward sees Saxon Black rushing into the backroom of The Blade—a low end bar in Miami—she isn’t sure if he’s there to save the day…or just to raise some hell. But she’s being held hostage, and he’s her best hope of survival. Within minutes, she’s away from the jerks with the guns and riding fast and hard on the back of Saxon’s motorcycle.
Death stalks them.
Saxon has been working undercover for far too long. When he finds sexy Elizabeth—with a gun to her head—he knows he will do anything to keep her safe. But once he gets her away from her abductors, the threat to her isn’t over. Someone has put a price on Elizabeth’s head, and if Saxon can’t keep her safe from the danger stalking her, then she’ll be dead.
Their lives are both on the line.
As their enemies close in, Elizabeth and Saxon must go on the run. And the longer they are together, the hotter their attraction for one another seems to burn. Saxon vows not to let anyone hurt her, no matter what he has to do, because he’s falling fast for Elizabeth. He’ll stop the killers on her trail, and then he’ll have her. Forever.
REVIEW: MINE TO HAVE is the fifth instalment in Cynthia Eden’s contemporary, adult Mine romantic suspense series. This is FBI agent Saxon Black and Elizabeth Ward’s story. Although this is the fifth storyline in the MINE series, it can be read as a stand alone without any difficulty. Any pertinent information from the previous stories is supplied where necessary. Some of the secondary characters from the earlier instalments have minor roles throughout.
Tired of the undercover work, the attempts on his life and the constant change in identity, Saxon Black agrees to one more job for the FBI before walking away and entering civilian life. Finding a beautiful woman with a gun to her head wasn’t what he expected when he went in for the take down at his latest stake out. Rescuing Elizabeth isn’t easy but keeping her safe is more difficult than he could ever have imagined. Someone wants Elizabeth Ward dead and is determined to kill anyone who gets in his or her way. What neither of them know is who put out the hit and why.
The relationship between Saxon and Elizabeth is one of immediate attraction. Saxon begins to lose his heart to the woman entrusted to his care and plans to make her his own-if only they both survive the next few days and weeks. Dead bodies begin to pile up and everyone has a connection to a man sitting in jail. The sex scenes are intimate, seductive and hot.
The storyline builds as our couple endure attempts on their lives, danger from an unknown source and a betrayal from within. When every hideout and secure location is discovered, Saxon and his brother Victor begin to suspect an internal leak from the FBI.
Victor is Saxon’s bond brother. Friends from early childhood, Victor and Saxon have always had one another’s back and in this Victor’s story begins to unfold and will be addressed in the next MINE storyline. We get another glimpse into Victor and Saxon’s sister’s life-Jasmine from MINE TO CRAVE- as she and her new husband play a role in Saxon’s new life.
Cynthia Eden is a brilliant romance writer whose characters and storylines come to life on the pages of the books we love to read. Her characters are real, intense and heartbreaking; the emotions are intense and provocative. MINE TO HAVE and the MINE series by Cynthia Eden is a must read for fans of romantic suspense.
