Many erotic romances are just hot, but this book sizzles. Jinx is on a mission to find a woman from her past. She'll use every means possible, even if she has to kidnap a mass murderer. As an adopted child of free spirited step-parents, Jinx has always wanted to know where she came from. Coming across a picture of a girl she remembers from her childhood, Jinx set out to find her and get the answers she needs.
Her search leads her to a run in with sexy Jed. Jed has his own mission and that is save as many children as possible from human trafficing. He can't believe that Jinx would do something so crazy as to try to kidnap the man he's been trying to get for so long. He has to find out exactly what Jinx is up to, but he can't deny the instant attraction he feels for her.
Jinx knows its something more. The two have a connection and no matter how hard Jed tries to fight it, she's not letting it go.
Well written, great dialog and sex scenes. These two characters jump right off the page. I like an erotic romance that tells a story and the bedroom scenes become part of the story and not the plot.
US Marshall Jinx Collins is an outspoken, free-spirited, and fearless woman. It’s that same fearlessness, however, that tends to get her into trouble. Jinx questions her life prior to being adopted. When those questions lead her to a murderer who’s about to be transported into the witness protection program, Jinx decides to kidnap him to see if she can uncover the truth.
Jed Kane has worked undercover in the human trafficking ring for years. When Jed accepts a job to disguise himself as one of his worst enemies and to take a ride from the correctional facility to a secured location, he certainly had not planned on being abducted by Jinx Collins. Jed’s uncertain as to how he feels about her touchy-feely hands and loose lips-unsure if they irritate him or if they are awakening his badly behaving desires. Jed knows he must first find out what the fanatical little lady wants with a murderer before he can act on whatever he’s feeling.
Straight away Jinx is attracted to the resilient and enticing Jed Kane-the only man who hasn’t backed down from her candor. While Jinx discovers that the questionable criminal may be able to assist her in finding out the truth about her past, Jed vows to save Jinx from her daring self. Once Jinx starts to understand what Jed feels for her-he wants to own her-she demands that he succumb to the raging frenzy. Jed allows himself to seduce her body, submitting himself to that dominant need. But haunted by a world of unlawful ownership, Jed forbids his cold heart to stake its dangerous claim on Jinx Collins.
Locked away in a dark basement, a little boy is waiting to be rescued-and Jinx’s past holds the key to his prison. If Jinx can finally find the truth which holds her fears, and if Jed can forgive himself for his past, then not only might they be able to save the boy, but they might also discover that their carnal desires really derive from their own prison… an inescapable prison of love.
