For Raven Black, hunting criminals is second nature. So is denial. It's not easy moving forward with one foot stuck in the past. But a new case offers her a much-needed distraction when Keystone accepts their toughest assignment yet - to track down an elusive criminal who's selling children on the black market. Their investigation leads them deep into the underbelly of the Breed world, a place both treacherous and enticing. With no room for mistakes, Raven makes a tough decision to lock the door to her past before it interferes with her job.

Abiding by the rules has never been a struggle for Cato. Being an escort is strict and professional. He clocks in and clocks out like a regular job. He poses as a boyfriend or husband for those who need it and, with his charm and good looks, he does it well. There's an endless line of beautiful women outside of work, so temptation has never been an issue.... But when an old flame becomes his new client, someone he let slip through his fingers, will he be able to keep his resolve?

Deleted this book before even making it through chapter 2. Really wishing that I hadn't wasted my money on it. Badly written, characters sound like they are written by a teenager with no experience with the opposite sex. cringeworthy. I try not to write bad reviews, but this book is just terrible. Not for me.will avoid author in future.

I couldn't! The story was unrealistic, almost childlike and lacked depth to the characters, which made it boring. Having paid for it, I followed the superficial characters through to the end but I felt like it was endured rather than enjoyed. I listened to the audio book an the reader insisted on attempting the Welsh accent, which was so awful it distracted from the already thin story and made it even less believable. The very fake accent was a cross between Irish and Scottish with an American undertone. If this had been included in the sample I would never have purchased the book, that's for sure! I don't enjoy writing negative reviews, but this was pretty terrible I'm sorry to say. a little more research & character development would go a long way to improving a promising idea

There's no place like home... For teacher Jenna McKnight, nothing spells "heartbreak" like finding her husband with somebody else--in her bed. It's clearly time to reinvent herself. A new body, a new city, and a new job later, she's done just that. The beautiful Auckland villa isn't really her home, though. Finn Douglas and his kids aren't really her family, however much she wishes they were. And playing house can be a dangerous game. Rugby star Finn Douglas is just looking for a temporary nanny and housekeeper. Not a girlfriend, and definitely not a wife. He can't resist Jenna's cooking, it's true. Who knew he'd have so much trouble resisting her? He wants to do what's right for his kids. But waiting is so hard... Note: This romance, like New Zealand, contains a bit of steam. If that isn't your cuppa, maybe visit some other country... er, audiobook.

I really enjoyed the story and it was read by one of the most talented readers I've come across so far. I was sad when I finished the book, I wanted it to carry on because I loved the characters.

I loved the characters and story and didn't want it to end. Penelope was the perfect reader for this story, just fabulous, she highlighted the humour perfectly. I'll definitely listen to this book again, always the sign of a real gem.
