Thea Fordham has wanted him forever. The years haven't cooled the heat Brennan Doyle arouses in her, so it's time for her to make the former Marine open his eyes to everything he's missing. What will it take to prove she's not some untouchable porcelain doll, but a red-blooded woman determined to finally get her man?

Doyle's honor has kept Thea off-limits, but every time he turns around she's there, wreaking havoc on his senses, making him think about long, sweaty nights and how good she would feel wrapped in his arms. How long could a man be expected to ignore the woman who calls to his every desire?

Doyle holds a secret that could jeopardize not only the first fragile bonds of love, but Thea's very life. Will he be able to act before it's too late for them both?

This was a fantastic novel! I was drawn in immediately. Nika Rhone delivers a clear plot with juicy conflicts and takes you on a roller coaster ride. Each main characters interospections are chock full of emotion and the way the characters want each other so badly had me routing for them. But there were boundaries and Rhone let her characters dance close enough to feel the intensity but pulls back to make you want more. The heat level is smoldering and complelety appropriate for the character's situation. I did not feel denied at all.  There are great secondary characters which richly layer the story without stealing the scenes. As a romantic suspense,  the whose gonna do it is delivered masterfully and kept me guessing right up to the end. And Rhone held nothing back to bring this amazing novel to a satisfying conclusion.  I'm so glad this is part of a series and can't wait for Book 2!

I could not put this book down. I loved the Royal Court. All three ladies are sassy, funny, and adorable. This story was Thea's and how she longed for that one man all her teenage and adult life. She knew deep down that they belonged together but Brennan was too focused on his job to realize it. It was so much fun watch Thea and her friends work at making him see her as a woman. Also wanting to know who the stalker was kept me turning pages. Nika Rhone's writing was full of humor, tension, and made the characters come to life for me. I cannot wait to read the rest of this series. I highly recommend this story.

I was looking for an intriguing romantic suspense story to read during this past weekend's blizzard, and I didn't have to look far, What the Lady Wants by author Nika Rhone was the perfect book to snuggle with under the blankets. Twenty-two year old heiress Cynthia "Thea" Fordham is determined to become independent of her family's wealth, and move forward in her life as an interior designer. But a threat made against her family has Thea being protected by Brennan Doyle, the sexy ex-Marine and family security head. Thea has an unrequited love for Doyle, and she is determined to show him that she isn't that little teenage girl anymore. Doyle has noticed the lovely girl that he was in charge of protecting, but he has always made sure to keep his feelings in check and consider Thea off-limits. Can Thea show Doyle that she is a desirable woman who wants him ... and can Doyle give into his desire for Thea ... even when danger lurks around the corner? What a Lady Wants is an enjoyable romantic suspense story set in Boulder, Colorado, that follows the slow building romance of Thea and Doyle. Author Nika Rhone draws the reader into the story with a wonderful mixture of romance and suspense that easily keeps them turning the pages. I couldn't help but enjoy watching as Thea and Doyle's heiress/bodyguard relationship blossoms into a sweet romance mixed in with an undeniable electric connection, chemistry, and spicy desire for one another. Then when you add in the element of suspense that was interwoven into the story, the excitement and anticipation simply keeps the reader wanting to find out who is behind the threat, and can Doyle's protection be enough to keep him and Thea alive. I would be remiss if I didn't mention Thea's friendship with fellow wealthy young ladies, Amelia Westlake and Lillian Beaumont. This trio of friends form what Doyle calls "The Royal Court": Lillian is known as the Queen or Queen Bea, the one who leads them on outrageous stunts; Amelia is known as the Princess, the one born with a silver spoon in her mouth and a dragon for a mother; and Thea is known as the Lady, the one with the calming influence and the voice of reason. I really enjoyed the quirky interactions and witty banter of this trio of friends, they have each other's back, and provided another enjoyable layer to the story. What the Lady Wants is the first book in the Boulder Bodyguards Series. I can't wait to read Amelia's story in the next installment in the series! If you like a fast paced and action packed romantic suspense story, then look no further, What the Lady Wants is the book for you!

‘What The Lady Wants’ by Nika Rhone made for a quick and enjoyable read. It’s a romantic suspense with a perfect blend of both. I was immediately drawn into the story by the main characters; their connection was electric, even though one of them was ignorant of the fact. As far as the secondary characters go, they were witty and friends I could see myself hanging around with. And the way the suspense was carefully woven into the story, made it seem realistic and kept me guessing until the end. Nika Rhone is a new author that I’ll definitely be adding to my TBR list.
