Action-packed, fast-paced book full of suspense and hot chemistry between the H/H that start out not liking one another. Great read, but not finding out how Jane broke into the office and her turning Sullivan in to the police kept me from rating this book with 5 stars... BlackHawk Security is owned by former SEAL Sullivan Bishop. His business is to protect others but when Jane Reise, JAG Corps prosecutor breaks into his office to obtain his help, he refuses. Sullivan blames her for his brother's suicide. Jane feels like Sullivan and BlackHawk is her only hope of escaping the stalker after her so, she blackmails him to get it. Forced to work with Jane, he soon realizes that she is not what he thought about her. She's feisty, independent, and can take care of herself, especially when she saves his life not once but 3 times, all when bullets were flying and their lives were at risk. Soon chemistry cannot be denied and hearts become involved to find out that the sick, psychopath has ties to the both of them.

I really enjoyed this book. Sullivan Bishop hates Jane Reise; he holds her responsible for the suicide of his brother because Jane prosecuted him years ago. When she shows up at his supposedly impenetrable office one night, asking for his help to find the man who’s been stalking her, Sullivan refuses. In desperation, Jane blackmails him because she knows a secret about Sullivan that could put him in prison and lose him his business. Faced with no choice, Sullivan calls his team in. They soon find that Jane is being targeted by a particularly vicious individual who wants Jane dead and won’t stop until she isn’t breathing anymore. Jane realises she’s made a mistake by dragging Sullivan and his team into it and tries to cut him loose, but by then he’s too involved and determined to keep his word – he promised he’d protect her, and he will. The action doesn’t stop in this book! Sullivan’s determination to keep Jane alive is only matched by the stalker’s determination to kill her, and what begins is a deadly battle with each side determined to emerge victor. After four long, action and tension filled days, Sullivan and Jane give in to the attraction that has burned between them since she showed up at his office. Normally, I would be a little hesitant to buy the short time frame, but given everything Sullivan and Jane went through it worked fine. And just when you think you’ve worked it all out, you know who’s behind the bounty on Jane, you’ll find out you were wrong. I liked both Jane and Sullivan; they were both strong willed and kick ass characters. The only thing that bugged me was something Jane did to Sullivan towards the end of the book. I can sort of buy why she did it, and what her rationale was behind it, but I think I’d have a much harder time forgiving her for it than Sullivan did because it was a really horrible thing to do. She clearly didn’t think of the consequences of her actions, and it could have been a whole lot worse than it ended up. I also want to know, Nichole… how *did* Jane get into Sullivan’s office?

Fast paced, action-packed with hot romance...a great ride and everything I love about romantic suspense. Ah, this couple. Sullivan and Jane. They were a lot of fun to watch the angst between two bullheaded people. This heroine is all spitfire and willing to do whatever it takes to get what she needs, which is Sullivan’s help, and like the title says, she uses blackmail. Someone’s stalking her, threatening her. The twists and turns as danger closes in on their lives kept me turning the pages. The ending was a nice surprise. This is most definitely one to pick up if you’re in need of a great suspense. And one I’ll be re-reading.

Severe, savage, and sharp suspense, the kind of creepy stalking where I can feel the eyes on me, giving the chills, the kind of up close and personal action that scared the daylights outta me. No one is safe from the battle or from getting wounded, hurt, or marred, not even the protagonists. The fight for survival is acute, you can taste the fear, you can hear the war cries, the images the author creates are vivid and toe-curling frightening. There are no guarantees of anyone surviving the hostile attacks towards the heroine. Jane Reise is one capable, kick-ass heroine. She is an army captain, a JAG lawyer, she knows her guns, she is familiar with combat moves, and she is not afraid to step into a line of fire or risk her life to save another. She is desperate to get help, to get intel, to get protection from the ruthless stalker, and desperate times calls desperate measures, even blackmail. I loved how Sullivan Bishop and Jane were on such equal footing after the rocky start. The mutual respect, the mutual recognition of each others capabilities, and even the attraction they have for each other, they were comparable, they were a perfect match for each other, there was a tangible harmony between them, that made the connection between them unique, true, and believable. Sullivan and Jane together were so hot together they could have melted the snow in the Alaskan winter, yet their most private moments happen behind the closed doors. This story took my breath away. The non-stop thrilling, brutal action had me on the edge, and the delightfully dreamy, ardent love story developing between Jane and Sullivan had me sighing with content. There's such a perfect balance between the relentless conflict and the wonderment of falling in love, between the tragedy and drama of Sullivan's family and the tight bond and teamwork, even the light banter, between him and his troops. I relished reading this story, it gave the kind of gratification that only a well written and plotted, smoothly flowing tale can give, it's the kind of explosive romantic suspense that I can't get enough of. ~ Five Spoons!
