He’ll do anything to protect her….
Former Marine and newest Red Stone Security employee Alexander Blue is still adjusting to the civilian world after a decade spent at war, but when he sees someone in danger, nothing can take away that intrinsic need to protect. After stopping a would-be mugger, Blue finds himself being bandaged up by a sensual local artist in her Key West condo. He never expected to stay the night, even if it is on her couch. The mysterious Mina gets under his skin in a way he never thought possible. When it becomes clear that her mugging wasn’t random and she’s being targeted by deadly men, Blue has no problem stepping into the role of protector.
But she doesn’t want to be saved
Tired of being coddled and treated like a child, Mina has tried to distance herself from her family. When danger finds her, she’s forced to turn to the sexy stranger who she feels a strong, unexpected connection with. In him she sees glimmers of herself; a little broken, withdrawn and wary of the world. Soon she learns that the biggest threat might not be from the men trying to kidnap her, but from the quiet warrior who poses an immediate risk to her heart.
Sinful Seduction appears in Sinful Seconds anthology
REVIEW: SINFUL SEDUCTION is the eighth storyline in Katie Reus’s contemporary, romantic Red Stone Security suspense series focusing on the men and women who work for Red Stone Security. This is former marine Alexander Blue and artist Mina Holligsworth’s story which begins with a chance encounter on the streets of Key West. Thwarting an attempted abduction, Alexander will be pulled into the upheaval that is Mina’s life-one she has kept secret for her own safety.
The focus of the storyline is on the search for the people responsible for the attempted abduction of Mina Hollingsworth. Mina’s family history is one right out of the society and financial pages of big business and Mina has become the target of people hoping to get rich-quick. When her security team does not respond, Mina is quick to discover that Alexander and The Red Stone Security Team have placed themselves in danger to protect her life. As the search for the threat continues she will get news that will devastate her life-once again.
The relationship between Mina and Alexander is quick to build-from a street rescue to a declaration of love a matter of one week will pass but not before our couple will discover what it is that each wants in life-to be loved and to fall in love-in this, Mina and Alexander will find their happily ever after. Mina is an independent woman whose success does not depend on finding her other half but when she does, she knows that Alexander is the man for her. The sexual tension is high as Alexander tries not to cross the line but Mina is a woman who knows what she wants-and she wants Alexander.
The world building continues with the inclusion of some of the previous Red Stone Security story characters and the potential for a new employee and storyline. SINFUL SEDUCTION is a story with suspense and mystery; tense moments on the run; and the sinful seduction of two people who meet under less than perfect circumstances. There is loss and heartbreak for a woman whose personal life has been turned upside down but in the end, she will come out ahead with a new direction and someone with whom to share it with.
