Only Something This Dangerous. . .

After three weeks in Manhattan, Kingdom Trahan is ready to get back to bayous, crawfish boils, and afternoons fishing on the Gulf. But before he can pull out of the parking garage, he meets a curvy detour. King noticed Cady Kowalski on the photo shoot he just endured--sexy and confident, with a waifish look that belies the way she corralled him into submission using only a can of hairspray. Yet Cady isn't confident now. She's bruised, edgy, and desperate to get out of town. . .

Could Feel This Good. . .

For years, Cady has been looking over her shoulder, wondering when the gang of drug-running criminals who killed her brother would make their move on her. She's grown used to having no one to turn to, no one to trust. But King isn't walking away--not even when their lives are threatened, again and again. Drawing Cady's pursuers out of hiding is the only way to end this, and it's also the most reckless thing they can do. . .short of diving into a red-hot affair from which there's no turning back. . .

Editorial Reviews

Publishers Weekly
Kent's 11th erotic SG-5 thriller (after 2009's No Limits) doesn't feature that crime-fighting organization directly, but does showcase a related character, Kingdom “King” Trahan, a rich Louisiana model and ex-con who rescues wan makeup artist Cady Kowalski. King first meets Cady when the battered girl climbs into his Hummer, pleading for a ride out of town. When they stop by Cadie's apartment to pick up her things, Cady's roommate tries to shoot her, setting off King's protective instincts. Not surprisingly, a passionate attraction develops between them, and the suspense heats up similarly; as King and Cady avoid hit men and car bombs, King learns that Cady carries a heavy secret—the part she played in her brother's death eight years earlier. Before long, the pair is recruited by a mysterious agent to catch one of their pursuers, who also had a hand in Cady's brother's death. As always, Kent's mix of thrills and romance is familiar but satisfying. (Dec.)

Makeup artist Cady Kowalski has been on the run for years ever since her brother was murdered, but her past has caught up with her. Battered and bruised she climbs into the hummer of former model and ex convict Kingdom Trahan, who looks forward to leaving the Big Apple for his home in Vermilion Parish, Louisiana. King reluctantly agrees to take Cady out of New York. They stop at her apartment so she can take some stuff with her, but her roommate tries to kill her. With King's help and that of a Fed she eludes those trying to kill her. However, it is a long drive as King slowly learns the truth re Cady and what happened eight years ago when her brother died. Cousin to Simon Baptiste of SG-5 (see No Limit), King is a terrific hero who cannot help but aid Cady though he keeps thinking of the unwanted paparazzi that constantly stalk his newly married cuz due to the man's famous bride. The story line is a fast-paced and exciting, but over the top of the Bayou and lacking in the hero's criminal back story. Still fans will be hooked the moment Cady climbs into King's hummer as this action packed thriller lives up to its title. Harriet Klausner
