Overview

Locked in Temptation (Protectors Series #3) by Brenda Jackson

His job is to protect her…no matter the cost

Police detective Joy Ingram's connection to elite security expert Stonewall Courson is instant. Undeniable. Electric. But her commitment to protect and serve has always come first. Everything else is secondary—especially when she uncovers an underground surrogate baby-making ring. Joy can't risk a distraction during the most important case of her career, not even one as sexy as reformed ex-con Stonewall.

There are few things Stonewall values more than a strong woman. But when Joy's investigation draws her into a deadly conspiracy that goes deeper than she ever imagined, he must convince her that he's the best man to protect her. And while he puts his life on the line to save hers, the insatiable attraction between them becomes the one danger neither of them can escape.

I enjoyed this storyline. It was suspenseful and engaging. Joy got on my nerves with her insercurities. I loved Stonewall ' s patience. Glad to see it didn't take the entire book reciting the same lines before anything happened. Well done.

Could not put this book down. Locked in Temptation is full of Intrigue, sensuality and everything else she brings to her books. Joy and Stonewall 's story brings a climatic end to The Protector series and leaves you wanting more. Waiting to see what the next chapter will bring from Brenda Jackson

What a hero! What a series! This was the third and final entry to Brenda Jackson's The Protectors series, and while the entire series is great, I do think she saved the best for last. This suspenseful, steamy, action filled romance touched my emotions, engaged my senses, and kept me captivated until the very end. Stonewall is a hero that isn't soon forgotten. He and Joy, who is a strong, independent police detective, make a dynamic pair and their love story is awe inspiring.

Oh, be still my beating heart! If this is not the most seductive, sensual, passionate, and intimate love story that I have ever read, then I don't know what is... The words, and scenes, they just flow off the pages like hot, sweet molasses, and it is beautiful, sexy, and appealing. Yet the story of the emotions and feelings growing between Stonewall Courson and his detective are the focus of the story, the meaning behind the lush scenes, the reason for the passion, an important part of the plot, as those scenes show how these two commitment phobics, relationship avoiders fumble their way to each other's hearts. Joy Ingram is a kick-ass heroine, I admired her, respected her, and liked her. She is capable and able, she is hard working, honorable, and smart. She has her challenges at the police force, but she does not go against them with fists flobbing but showing everyone around her what she is capable of. Stonewall Courson fell instantly for his Joy in the Morning six months ago. Thier lives and careers have kept them from acting upon the attraction, yet when the opportunity finally arises, Stonewall goes all in to impress Joy. He is just... delicious. Tough, yet sweet, big yet gentle, honest, caring, mature, beautiful man, that I fell for completely. I love it when the characters act and think in a mature manner and when the obstacles on their way are not something they necessarily cost themselves but the environment around them. The story has elements of suspense and mystery mixed with the succulent romance giving it an extra kick of spiciness with the action. Prepare to get all the feelings from this story and let it fill your senses because Stonewall and Joy surely deliver and make up for the lost time they had, waiting to find their ways to each other's arms. ~ Four Spoons with a teaspoon on the side

Police detective Joy Ingram and security expert Stonewall Courson feel an instant attraction to each. Unfortunately, both have jobs that are demanding and keep them from connecting. Stonewall is determined and when they finally have a first date, the two begin to realize that there is more to life than just the job. But Joy finds herself immersed in the most important case of her career. She has uncovered a surrogate baby-making ring and knows she must stop it. The individuals behind the ring will stop at nothing to protect their interests even if it means taking out a police detective. Stonewall will not allow that to happen. Once again, Brenda Jackson has taken two people who fairly crackle with electricity and made them work for the happily ever after. Joy and Stonewall each bring many issues to the relationship. Joy had been engaged before and was not looking for a relationship. She wanted only a diversion. Stonewall was sure he could convince her otherwise. You cannot help but wish for your own Stonewall when he turns on the charm. You are also sure that this is Stonewall and he will be like that forever. It just makes your heart go faster. Danger, romance, excitement and lots of change are in store for these two. With an incredible plot, we can only hop on for the ride. Be prepared to stay up into the wee hours to see what happens next.

How to a create a heartbreaker ... Just ask Brenda Jackson. Stonewall is a prime example. He's a protector from his larger than life personality to his wicked good looks. He's the ultimate bad boy. A man with his own demons to bare and the muscle to hold back the darkness that hovers around one special lady. Joy is used to fighting her own battles. Her job is to help others and she does that with the ferocity of a lioness. What happens when the lioness finds herself on the receiving end of danger? She just may get more than she bargained for. Locked in Temptation dominates from beginning to end. Joy and Stonewall are a power couple. Every step pulled me further into this seductively written dance of danger.
