Back Cover Blurb:

Seduction returns to the Devil’s Den, a Texas strip club where hearts can’t hide when the chemistry is right.
The night Marisela Gonzalez rides up to the Devil’s Den on her motorcycle, running from trouble and looking for her sister, she finds more than a place to hide out and work her red-hot body. She meets a guy brave enough to stand by a tough, terrified nineteen-year-old girl who’s been in the wrong place with the wrong jerk one too many times. And he’s ready to show Marisela how a real man treats the woman he desires.

An ex-cop taking over as the club’s head of security, Craig Hanson can handle anything—except the urgent need he suddenly feels to hold Marisela tight. Commitment has never been his thing, but all that changes when Craig finds something too real to deny between them. Sensual and vulnerable, Marisela’s got a scary past. And when it comes knocking, Craig goes all in to protect her—because seduction is the ultimate game changer.

Includes a special message from the editor, as well as an excerpt from another Loveswept title.

My Review:

This is the kind of story that when you have to put it down for whatever reason you can’t stop thinking about it and you’re rushing to get back to it because you need to know what happens next.

Rand gives an indepth look at a side of life many of us never see or experience. She does so in a captivating manner with an unforgettable story. I love this author’s writing style. She brings this world to life in such a vividly real manner that you don’t simply read it, you experience it. This novel left me with tears in my eyes at the end. They were happy tears, but having seen what the characters endured throughout…

The dual perspectives in the first person gives the reader lots of insight into both of the main characters. I loved the changes in Craig since the 1st novel in the series. He’s grown into a fantastic individual with still a hind of the bad-boy-player we know him as. I love how Rand portrays dancers (and other club employees) as real people who work their jobs for a myriad of reasons, rather than as second class citizens.

This was a hard hitting, insightful story that is also exciting & hot. Rand kept me hooked throughout this one. I wouldn’t hesitate to recommend it to others, and will definitely be reading it again (many times) in the future.
