All's fair in lust and seduction...
Lark Warren can never stay one person for too long, so when her past starts to catch up to her, she hops the first bus out of DC, steals a new name, and goes deep into hiding in New Orleans. Unfortunately, all it takes is the wrong set of eyes to blow her cover. Enter Vaughn—the man she once let get too close to her real self.
Ex-Navy SEAL Vaughn Wilde has one objective: drive Lark back to DC to face charges for identity theft—which would be easier if he could forget the three lust-filled weeks he shared with her before she disappeared. With each passing mile, he can’t ignore the heat still sparking between them…or the fact he has led her enemies right to her.
Lark can’t stay with Vaughn, not when it will put him in the crosshairs of the dangerous man she’s spent the last five years running from. But Vaughn is determined to keep her safe—even if it means she’ll run off with his heart all over again.
We finally get to discover who Lark Warren really is and put the broody Vaughn Wilde out of his misery…maybe. They hooked up at his twin brother Cam’s wedding, spent a couple of intense weeks together and then she disappeared. When he looked into her background, Vaughn discovered she’d used several aliases before the current one but never found the first and real. A chance discovery in New Orleans puts them on a road trip together as he brings her back (unwillingly) to Washington, DC.
The fast pace of the story starts right away and never lets up! Lark, or Sage as she’s now called, doesn’t reveal herself easily and her layers are peeled back slowly over the course of the book. Don’t assume that you know Vaughn because you’ve read Cam’s story as these two men, though identical twins, couldn’t be more different. His story is equally compelling as Lark’s and together they’re enigmatic.
I loved this book, even with a couple of plot directions that required a bit of belief suspension. It was tension filled with quite a few explosive action scenes. There were also some crossover characters from the HORNET series (to my delight). I’m still enjoying the Wilde brothers and their expanding family. I’m looking forward to Greer’s story, which is next up.
I also love to talk about books. There’s nothing more exciting than to finish a great story and cover it A to Z with other people, exploring different perspectives and points of view. So, if you see something on my shelf you’d like to talk about, send me a message and we’ll talk!
