Image of At the Brink

The author weaves in the harsh realities of war into a highly erotic love story that is extremely satisfying. Although initially irritating, the hero’s high handedness and supreme alpha personality evolve from self-preservation. Lily seems like a pushover at first, but her subsequent growth and strength are worth watching.

When Martin blackmails his wife Lily into a forced arrangement, she only complies to keep her mother safely ensconced in the nursing home. Josh Lane, one of the most powerful men in the world, only agrees because of the strong attraction he feels for Lily. He doesn’t care about Martin, his inventions or his financial ruin. When Lily balks at the complete control Josh will have, he reminds her of the consequences. When she finally submits to the outlandish video that’s only the beginning of her service, it convinces him she’s sincere. As they embark on the full-blown aspects of their relationship, Lily realizes she might be in over her head. Although Josh demands compliance from her, he withholds parts of himself. Are his secrets deal breakers? (CARINA, dl $3.99)
