Overview

Stripped Defenseless: An Erotic Romantic Suspense

On the run from an abusive ex-boyfriend, Ava Lureau doesn’t expect to trust anyone, let alone have a one night stand with a dangerously gorgeous stranger. But leaving her cold, lonely bed behind and jumping into Kade’s strong arms is something she can’t resist. If only for a night.

Kade Gavin’s job is simple—capture his target and deliver her to the man who hired him. Nothing but a paycheck matters in Kade's bleak existence…until the enticing stripper with soft curves and a puzzling persona climbs into his bed—and under his skin.

When one night turns into a deadly adventure, snowbound in an isolated cabin, Ava must determine if her tempting captor is her savior…or the man who’ll leave her stripped defenseless.

Fatal Exposure gleaned wonderful 5 Star reviews from multiple online book reviewers as well as being a finalist in the 2010 CRW Award of Excellence and the 2010 WISRWA Write Touch Readers’ Award contest. Lia hopes you enjoy the new cover, title and price, along with the same sexy story!

"There's no lack of kink in Fatal Exposure, and Slater uses every opportunity and then some to deliver enough bang for the buck in this tale... This is a fast and fun read, which left me fanning myself..."

    Ava Lureau has run across the US to get away from her powerful abusive boyfriend. Once training to be a veterinarian, now she’s a stripper looking over her shoulder because even 2000 miles away she doesn’t feel safe.

    Kade Gavin was hired to find Ava Lureau and he’s pretty sure he found her. Before dragging her back to Zack Moreno and collecting his big payday he needs to be sure. Hanging out at the strip club, he’s still not positive the stripper named Lily is her, with her different hair and eye colors. When he spends the night with her in his motel room, he begins to doubt whether he’ll be able to complete the job and turn her over. For the first time in years, he’s discovering he still has a heart after all.

    A woman on the run, a man hired to find and bring her back, a powerful abusive asshat, all make a pretty decent story. Ava is a bit too naïve for me and she lets Kade off far too easily in my opinion. As far as Kade goes, well, I like him sometimes and not very much at others. His behavior borders on being abusively controlling and that makes him not much better than Zack in my mind. I felt he had no respect for Ava and she let him have his way with her even after he betrayed her. Plus, he lied to her, didn’t explain anything to her and didn’t seem very sorry about it. Yet, there were times when I liked him. He almost seemed bipolar in personality. Anyway, the secondary characters are passable and though the ending seems farfetched, all-in-all I found this story to be an ok read.
