"What the f--k do you mean wait? I can feel your terror now. Something has happened and either you tell me now, or I'm coming down there now." Alistair was being held close to the man behind him and begged Ryland to stay away.
"You'll only get yourself killed, and your wife will kill me if you do." He took a deep breath as they moved in the hall and Alistair got his first look around. "I'm being held with a gun to my head to be, as he put it, a shield. Call for help but stay away, please. I can see seven bodies right in front of me, and I don't want to see you among them. Please, Ryland, listen to me for once."
Then, a lovely woman steps in front of Alistair and his would be killer. She was going to get him killed, he just knew it. But when she kills his would be assassin and gets shot in the process, he can only think of one thing. She's his mate.
Ally is on the run and has no idea why she'd stepped in to save the arrogant lawyer. She detests them as a general rule and since her ex-husband is one... well, Ally doesn't want anything to do with the handsome man.
Lance Isaac wants his wife back - he needs her back - to die for him. But, when Alistair steps in and takes her away, Lance decides to kill them both.
The Golden Men stick together. Especially when it comes to saving the women of their streak. Alistair knows his brothers will help him keep his mate safe, but will she let them? It certainly doesn't seem that way. But when Lance shows up telling him that Allyson is his, Alistair decides to show him that messing with his family is as good as stepping in front of a moving train. It just isn't a smart move - but then again Lance isn't all that smart.
Ryland isn't the only sexy Golden.

I usually enjoy Kathi Barton's books so I supect my dislike of this one is very much due to the appalling narration.
The narrator has a childlike pitch to her voice which is irritating and her characters sound even worse. The mothers in the story sound like Glinda from the Wizard of Oz .
Sandra Golden mother of Alistair is very much a matriarchal figure in the series so to hear her voiced as Glinda was just too grating on the ear and for me was the straw that broke the camel's back.
Had I read the printed story first I might have allocated more stars to that aspect. Sadly I didn't and think it may be some time before I do, my aversion to it being great having listened to the audiobook.
