Summary

A Tragic Love Story

Charlotte Dennis's mission was clear: distract and misdirect CIA operative Ian Taggart by any means necessary. If she failed, she would never see her sister again. With her training, it should have been simple, but after one night in Ian's arms, she knew that saving her sister would mean losing the man of her dreams.

Ian was tracking a terrorist when he met the beautiful American daughter of a Russian mobster. His instincts told him Charlotte was trouble, but his body craved her like a drug and his heart would not be denied. She took his ring and his collar. For once he was truly happy. But as he closed in on his target, her betrayal cost him his mission while her sacrifice saved his life. As she died in his arms, Ian vowed he would never love again.

A Dangerous Reunion

For five years, Charlotte has thought of nothing but returning to her husband, her master. Working in the shadows, she has devoted herself to earning a chance to reclaim her place in Ian's life. But forgiveness isn't a part of Ian's vocabulary.

Nothing is more important to Ian Taggart than his new mission. But the information he needs is firmly in the hands of the woman who betrayed him. To catch his most dangerous prey, Ian will have to let Charlotte back into his life. As the hunt takes them to some of the world's most exotic locations, the danger grows and their passion reignites.

Will Ian forgive his wayward submissive...or lose her again?

Ian

I have all of Lex I Blake books and now also own all the audio, as an English woman I was, at first, not too happy at the English and Irish accents but the further into the series the more I have got used to them. Love Ian's story.

Another winner...she just keeps getting better!

What did you like most about Love and Let Die?

All of her books are great but with this series she just keeps raising the standard. If you read or listen from the start you will become more embroiled in the characters and their lives.

Who was your favorite character and why?

I have to love this big guy as he has so many hidden parts to his personality that he tries, unsuccessfully, to hide. He is the glue that provides the home and hearth that most of us crave, not that he would admit that, he likes to be seen as mean and caring but he is anything but. His character continues to develop from here on in with the series too.

What about Ryan West’s performance did you like?

He gives the character the grit that I always expected. I have all these as books but then got the audio version so I could listen and work. I do not regret the double financial aspect and can't wait for the next in the series.

Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

Definitely.

Any additional comments?

Lexi Blake is very talented and I love the depth of her characters. She had never disappointed me yet. Definitely worth your hard earned pennies! If you like this then look for the off shoots as they are also well worth your time and money.

A "Master" piece

I don't know what it is about this book but I am absolutely in love with it. This is hands down my favorite book in the series. There are so many great things about this book: the hilarious dry humor, the heartwarming love story, the fantastic plot, ect. Every scene in this book is riveting and jammed full of character development, even the sex scenes. I almost never write reviews for these but I just feel such a connection with this book. I have listened to hundreds of audiobooks but I can count the number of books I've re-listened to on one hand. This book is near the top of that list. I would highly recommend this book to anyone who likes fast-paced, touching, and action-packed books.

I love Bug Tag

I loved this book I was finally glad to get to Ian this book was great. I loved that Charlie was able to prove her love to Ian and that he let her. For five years, Charlotte has thought of nothing but returning to her husband. Ian thought that he lost his wife that no one knew about five years ago until she showed up on his door running because her uncle is trying to kill her and her sister who uses her computer to make people's lives hell. Ian doesn't have it in his heart to forgive and forget. But Charlie and her sister Chelsea had info on the one person that he wanted to kill the most Eli Nelson. This book had a lot of action and hot sex as well as emotions from Ian with everyone being surprised by how Ian was with Charlie and how she stood up to him and for others and when she dragged the girl out of the club by hair for talking sh*t about her and the other women. I also felt sorry for Chelsea she didn't want her sister to be happy because she was unhappy and she was doing a lot of things behind her back and she was being hunted for it. I have been waiting for awhile to read the story of Ian and I am so glad that I was not disappointed with this story. We got on a realistic roller coaster of a relationship, realistic in that I can understand why both of them do what they do, every time. Thank goodness for good friends and family who help them through, because I don't think Ian or Charlotte could have made it without those awesome friends. We get to catch up with all the characters from previous books. And the cliff hanger was killer.

I hate Charlotte

I love the story. You know the story is well written and good when you HATE the heroine but still love the story. For me, Charlotte is like the sister in law that your brother loves to death and you just don't like. I respect the development of the characters and story line.

A Great Story

Though there wasn’t many love scenes in this book, the romantic story was excellent. It has a lot of intrigue in it.
