Overview

Shannon McKenna's first thriller, Behind Closed Doors, brought readers a passionate, intense hero like no other: Seth Mackey. His dark sensuality and thirst for revenge concealed the secrets of his past -- secrets that only his mysterious partner, Connor McCloud, understood. Like Seth, Connor has been scarred by betrayal and tested by searing desire -- for a woman who tempts him beyond reason...a woman who is now the bait in a deadly trap Connor is unable to resist....

Ex-FBI agent Connor McCloud can never forget the day he was set up to die at the hands of trusted friend and fellow agent Ed Riggs. Hard justice and loyalty to his badge have cost Connor what he wants most -- Ed's shy, studious daughter Erin. He can never have her now, but her beauty still haunts and torments his every waking hour and his most fevered erotic dreams. But now that his old enemy Kurt Novak has returned, Connor is prepared to do anything to protect the vulnerable young woman from a killer who has vowed a brutal payback...a killer with a predator's lethal patience.

Erin has been harboring secret fantasies about Connor McCloud since she first laid eyes on him -- but that was before his testimony sent her father to jail. Her world is falling apart and it's all she can do to hold her family together. But now Connor is knocking on her door, telling her she needs his protection, whether she wants it or not. He won't give up and he won't stay away. He's sworn to guard her life with his own and his fierce protectiveness awakens long-buried feelings -- and a fiery sexuality deep within her soul...

The first two thirds of this book was the two main characters getting to know each other in bed. The remainder of the story finally picked up and got interesting. It kept your interest but was a slow start.

This series incorporates mystery, action, intense characte2rs, and well done sex scenes. This is the 2nd in the series-hopefully there is at least 1 or 2 more. Connor McCloud is the first of the brothers to "meet" his match and his story is a great introduction to the McCloud family dynamic. Couldn't wait to read the rest of the series!

Shannon McKenna's stories hold you from the begining to the end. I have read all of her books and most are excellent reads.

I read the first book in this series and gave it two stars. Occasionally the second in a series is better but not in this case. The characters seemed very childish to me and the love scenes were repeatedly the same. I could not even finish it, something I almost never do.

Loved the first book (behind closed doors) and loved this one too. The two were steamy love stories in a solid thriller. Well written and engaging. Read reviews saying that love scenes were too long. They were long but it made sense for the intense characters and the high adrenaline scenes. I actually liked them a lot and thought them integral to the storyline and character development. Great read.

## Don't bother with this series. It's rediculous how badly these "heroes" (NOT) treat these women. The sex is hot but because these men are so awful it ruins the romance (what little there is). Not recommended.
