Image of Hot Pursuit (Black Knights Inc.)

Hot Pursuit is the eleventh book in the Black Knights Inc. series and picks up where we left our characters in book ten, Fuel for Fire. We finally get to see what makes the charming-yet-elusive Christian tick, and his backstory is guaranteed to tug at readers’ heartstrings. There’s no denying that Emily and Christian have chemistry, but Emily is back and forth about whether to give in to Christian, and it can become frustrating. Despite the heroine’s insecurities, there’s no shortage of action and foul-mouthed punchlines, making Hot Pursuit fit right in with the rest of the series.

As the newest member of the Black Knights crew, Emily Scott isn’t afraid to tell it like it is and she doesn’t take crap from anyone. The former CIA operative is brash and the total opposite of polished, ex-SAS officer Christian Watson. During the latest mission, the duo finds themselves on the run as they try to return to the gritty streets of Chicago from England. Naturally, both tempers and sexual sparks fly between the two, despite Emily’s rule about never mixing business with pleasure. With bad guys close behind them and Christian’s past coming back to bite them all in the ass, the team is going to need one hell of a plan if they want to make it home in one piece.
