Dumped and disillusioned…
Emma Janssen’s perennial good luck has run dry…
First there’s the weekend of heated sensuality she’d shared with Lucas Trammel, followed by three months of humiliating silence. And then there’s her testy new home, which is slowly nickel-and-diming her to death. Add in a band of ruthless killers hot on her tail, and her perfect life is in a nasty meltdown. Even so, the very last thing she needs is Lucas racing to her rescue. She’d given the man her love once and he’d abandoned her. She’s not about to let him close enough to hook her heart for a second time.
Deadly and dangerous…
Lucas has been lying to Emma for years…
As a special operator with ST7, life has taught Lucas to hold his Navy credentials close to his ballistics vest. It doesn’t pay to let civilians know what he does for a living. When one hot as hell weekend threatens to become more than a three-night stand, Lucas takes a giant step back. Emma is the kind of woman a man marries. But she’s a civilian. Civilians and black ops don’t mix. So he bails on her. He’s convinced he’d made the right call…until he finds out she’s in danger. The thought of a world without Emma? Wasn’t going to happen, even if that means kidnapping her himself.
Driven and Desperate…
Injured pride is all good and well until it gets you killed…
Emma isn’t stupid. After narrowly escaping an abduction thanks to Lucas’s timely intervention, she accepts his protection. But as the days drag on, and their passion rekindles she finds herself fighting two battles—one against the unidentified killers intent on taking her life, and one against the sexy Navy SEAL determined to steal back her heart.

Three nights of passion. Two hearts falling. One too scared to follow through. Three months later Lucas finds himself unable to walk away from her again. Emma needs his help whether she’ll admit it or not and he’s giving it regardless.
Lucas is a SEAL, his life is hard, deployments are sometimes long, and he would never put someone he loved through waiting around and wondering what ifs. So he walked away from Emma and convinced himself every day he’d done the right thing. That is until he finds out Emma is in danger then he becomes hell-bent on protecting her.
A ransacked house, an unfeeling detective, a dog with her life on the line, an attempted kidnapping and all this because of something Emma knew nothing about. The one thing she did know was that she wasn’t safe, but letting Lucas help her was like stepping in front of the firing range. She’d loved him and he’d disappeared without so much as a phone call. And not even that heartbreak could convince her body that she no longer loved him.
The sexual tension is beyond thick and when it finally breaks it’s like a dam cracked and its water is suddenly feeding the desert. The action and suspense had my eyes glued to the pages; definitely never a dull moment.
Bound by Temptation is a non-stop suspenseful rush. Who’s after Emma? What do they want? What the hell just happened? And I can’t forget the…can y’all please just freaking kiss already!?!?
