The second McCloud Brother book focuses on middle brother Connor McCloud. When Connor receives word that Kurt Novak and two of his henchmen have broken out of prison, his immediate fear is for the woman he has loved for ten years. However, everyone around him thinks he is insane to think that Erin is in any danger.
When he shows up on her doorstep, Erin tells him that she neither can afford nor desires a bodyguard, and tries to send him packing. She is barely holding on to her life after discovering her father's dangerous double life in the first book - her mother has spiraled into severe depression, her little sister is acting wild and blowing off college, and Erin was fired when her father's scandal came out. Now facing the man she always dreamed of, Erin cannot handle any more pressure.
But when Connor refuses to take no for an answer and follows Erin out-of-town on a consulting job, the passion between them explodes. As the plot develops, masks must be removed and forces from the outside dealt with.
This romantic suspense book is quite HOT - the storyline is very intense, but some scenes (especially the ones involving Novak) are not for the faint-of-heart.”
