Except in love. Yet, he’ll soon find himself irresistibly drawn to the candidate’s beautiful, naïve daughter. Sheltered heiress Lola Randall has always played it safe. Now she’s gone rogue.

Erotic romantic suspense series for mature audiences PUBLISHER’S NOTE: This is Book 1 in a steamy, suspenseful 2-book story. Book 1 ends in a scandalous cliffhanger, Book 2 delivers the HEA.


I received a copy of this book off of instafreebie but it is currently free on Amazon. I really enjoyed the story of a young naïve girl, trying to escape the pressures of her life. And then a very dominate older man finds her to bring her back.

Nolan was yummy, a bit too dominate for my tastes. But then I’m not a natural submissive. So I find it hard to read stories sometimes, that portray women who are. I have to disconnect my brain, not be outraged by the barbarian behavior, and just enjoy the male dominant ride. Even though I am thinking to myself I would have nut punched him. But then I guess it wouldn’t make for a very pretty story if the damsel in distress was nut punching the hero. LOL

The start of the two part series lays out the ground work with the mystery and the buildup for Nolan’s and Lola’s relationship. This story read as a romantic suspense. The character and world building were fantastic and again Nolan is yummy.
