But can the former SAS thaw Jess's stone cold heart?

When his older brother asks him to take care of business, Con finally will have redemption he craves. Except when Ava Sanchez, his brother's assistant, is threatened, he must choose between saving the girl or protecting his family. Will his choice bring him love or break his heart?
Heart of Stone:
Riley Stone is the handsome brother, the charming one. Everyone who meets him compares him to his father, which in his mind is not a compliment.

On the run, in the midst of danger, the blistering passion they share explodes. Can these two opposites find common ground, or will Di smash Riley's stone heart?

Can these two former lovers put aside past hurts and heal their hearts?

But as Ric grows closer to Shelley, he can't help but wonder, can he save her life or will they be too late for love?
About the Author
USA Today Bestselling Author Lisa Hughey has been writing romance since the fourth grade, which was also about the time she began her love affair with spies. Harriet and Nancy Drew and the Hardy Boys later gave way to James Bond and Lara Croft and Jason Bourne. Exploring the complex nature of a profession that requires subterfuge and lies fascinates her. She loves combining her two passions into fiction. As evidenced by her Black Cipher Files series.
Taking a break from romantic suspense, Lisa entered the paranormal world of the Angelic Realm. The Seven deals with forbidden relationships between humans and Archangels. At its heart, Rafe is a novel about the dynamic of family relationships. As this series evolves, the core story continues to be about love triumphing in the face of opposition and heartache. (The really hot Archangels don't hurt.)
And recently she's been immersed in the Stone Family novellas, stories about a blended family of brothers and a sister who have a lot more in common than they realize. But of course she couldn't just write about family and romance. There are complex plots, bad guys, and suspense too.
Lisa loves to hear from readers and has various places you can connect with her, although, shh, Twitter is her favorite.

There was so much about this book that I disliked. I had to force myself to finish it. Unlikeable characters and silly plot. Minor problem...book description didn't match the male model on the cover. I liked the other books in the series but do tnink the author over uses the f-word, c**k, and p***y.
LOVED this book! A great plot that focuses on John, a former marine with a prosthetic leg, and Rissa, a former FBI agent with a loss of confidence. The story on its own was great - a well done blend of suspense and romance - but what really sets it apart is the way the author was able to weave in a likely struggle a disabled vet might face and its impact on his life. This is a fast paced mystery that has John and Rissa investigating missing women that were kidnapped and forced into sexual slavery. While they investigate, John and Rissa must also face their attraction to each other and overcoming their own weaknesses. This one will keep you engaged and turning pages just as quickly as possible.
