Banks continues her Sweet series with this suspenseful entry replete with friends from prior books. Strong on both plot and steaming-hot sex, there’s also a delicious mix of humor and tenderness. Connor has his hands full and it is a delight to watch him fall.
Lyric Jones is a spoiled celebrity, a wild child who surrounds herself with adoring fans. None of them know she’s trying to outrun a stalker who is causing old nightmares to resurface.
Enter reluctant bodyguard Connor Malone, who is convinced the only way to keep her safe is to isolate her from the madness of her public life. As he begins to see the real Lyric, the dynamic between them changes, leaving them defenseless against external forces. (HEAT, Apr., 320 pp., $15.00)
