SHE MAY BE HIS WORST ENEMY…
For deadly secret agent Peter Macmillan, language is a weapon—one he uses to hunt criminals, destroy plots, and charm enemies. Seducing information out of a beautiful singer in Bangkok hotel should be easy…except this particular singer has the power to destroy his cool façade, and with it, his last defense against a dark past.
HE MAY BE HER ONLY HOPE…
He tricked her. He helped himself to her body and her secrets. He has enemies everywhere. Laney Lancaster should hate Peter, but when she discovers him shirtless, sweaty, and chained up in the hotel’s dungeon, all she can think about is freeing him. Because she knows what it’s like to be trapped and alone. And she could use a dangerous friend.
They may be wrong for each other, but the instant they join forces, Laney and Peter are plunged into an odyssey of hot sex and dark danger. To survive, they must trust each other with their lives—and their hearts.
The suspense in Off the Edge takes center stage. With the mission and running from Laney’s ex the action and emotions run high. But don’t worry there’s enough romance and sexy to keep romance lovers happy.
Laney is an american living in Bangkok. Sounds exotic, right? Yeah it would be if she wasn’t hiding from her ex. Then she meets a handsome stranger that knows all the right things to say and is deadly as hell.
Peter is in Bangkok on a mission with the Association, a top-secret group working to take down evil people. And he knows all the right things to say because he’s a linguistics expert. He can hunt people down by their voices and they way they talk.
Laney and Peter’s attraction is super hot and they are just what the other needs. Peter needs help letting go and opening up. Laney helps him do that. Laney needs help learning to be a little closed off when it’s called for and Peter helps her see that. There really is a balance to the two when they are together.
So far each book in the Associates series by Carolyn Crane could be read as a stand alone. Some of the secondary characters show up but you wouldn’t be lost if you started with Off the Edge.
Next please! I’m now reading book 3, Into the Shadows.
After 17 years I've finally finished my BA in English (no I do not want to be a teacher). Before majoring in English I would not have touched anything labeled "classic", but I have enjoyed a few along the way in my college career.
While I hated to read growing up, I am now an avid book reader and audiobook listener. I love rejecting reality one book at a time. I only read fiction within my favorite (at least to date) genres which include: most romance (paranormal, contemporary, D/s, BDSM, M/M)Urban Fantasy, and a few YA (mostly PNR or UF from favorite adult authors, but I'm slowly stepping out of my comfort zone after enjoying a few contemporary YA novels in adolescent literature class I took).
