As a trained sniper and Navy SEAL, Lucas Tate found the courage to distance himself from the wealthy, wicked patriarch who adopted him. Instead, he’s devoted his life to the elite band of brothers from his unit. So when the widow of one of his former comrades finds herself in apparent danger, Lucas makes it his job to protect her against all enemies. . .and not let her out of his sights.
Grace Riley feels overwhelmed by Lucas's presence, but the cold-eyed marksman will do anything to keep her safe. Soon the special attention he pays her becomes a wild romantic distraction―one that troubles Grace, since Lucas was so close to her deceased husband. Still, how can she resist Lucas’s intense, ice-blue stare? All she knows is that a life without strong, passionate Lucas is one not worth living. Can Lucas can find a way to honor his former brother-in-arms by saving Grace. . .and loving her, too?
|Book two in this series has the middle brother, Lucas Tate, reading his letter and finding himself protecting a former Seals wife. Grace Riley is an artist getting ready for her first gallery showing. When Lucas shows up and explains to her what is going on and what her now deceased husband had done. Her concept is she knew nothing about his deals and has no money. Therefore she owns none and is not in danger. Lucas does not discuss it with her anymore and takes to his place. What is the first of many surprises for Grace and Lucas is he also brings all of her canvass, paints, and sets up a studio for her in one of his spare rooms. This is just the first kind act he does for her. The story delves into both of the pasts, their childhood and her relationship with her husband. You also get a deeper look into his life as well and you find out that they both have been attracted to one another for a long time. Though Lucas is saving her, she is also saving him. By the time you get to the end of this book the action of the story has been taken over by the emotion of these two characters. There is plenty of action in and out of the bedroom and apartment. Overall a very good second book. I actually liked this one better than the first book. Good characters. Now just waiting for the book about Wolf. I got this book from Netgalley.com I gave it 5 stars.
