Author’s note: The stories in the Blood and Thunder series are super-hot and have language some may object to.
When investigative journalist Amber Smith is tasked with discovering the truth behind the Blood and Thunder polo team, she doesn't expect to fall in love with an undercover billionaire...
Landing a job as crew on the superyacht Russian Thunder brings Amber to the attention of the superyacht's owner and founder of the Blood and Thunder polo team, Alexei Riga.
During a night on shore Amber is captured by a gang of slavers. Held in a cellar prior to being auctioned off on the dark web, Amber escapes thanks to the intervention of Alexei and his team.
Now she knows the truth about Alexei’s work as a vigilante, Amber has a choice to make. Will she write a candid article about him and risk putting Alexei’s life in danger? Or will she work with him to save more lives?
Amber’s respect for the enigmatic Russian soars. Christmas draw closer, and the line between working with Alexei and falling in love with him start to blur. Amber wants it all, but the more Alexei comes to care for her, the more determined he is not to draw Amber into his dangerous life.
When the superyacht docks on the glamorous subtropical island of Isla Celeste, Amber is determined that Alexei will yield to the powerful attraction between them. But Alexei is quickly swallowed up in his other life as a polo player and pushes Amber away.
Their affair might be over, but Amber is still staff, and when the Blood and Thunder team starts to take her for granted, she comes up with her own novel way of bringing them into line. When good food doesn't work, maybe a grenade will…
Only one thing is certain: Christmas is sure to be explosive!

Most Helpful Customer Reviews
This is an absolutely amazing book. The writing is spare and sophisticated, the sex scenes graceful. There are no graphic words or slang use for description. Amber and Alexi (forgive my misspelling) are complex and compellingly written characters it was a pleasure to meet. Action, adventure, romance. This scores on all facets delightfully. The good news: there are more stories of the Blood and Thunder team. I hope they continue to be as well done as this one. I question the use of so many f*cks when other words could easily be inserted, it detracts from the flow of the story for me, especially when there isn't much profane language elsewhere.
