The Walker Brothers... Tall, dark, and deadly, these three brothers run Walker security. Each brother is unique in his methods and skills, but all share key similarities. They are passionate about those they love, relentless when fighting for a cause they believe in, and all believe that no case is too hard, no danger too dark. Dedication is what they deliver, results are their reward.
HOT SECRETS: (Book 1) Royce Walker, a former FBI Agent, who's opened a private security firm with his brothers, has always had the hots for the prim, proper Assistant District Attorney, but considered her hand's off because of a family connection. However, when danger threatens Lauren, he isn't willing to stand by and watch her get hurt. Now the passion for survival is only rivaled by the passion burning between them. And that passion, might just be the death of them both.
The beginning immediately grabs your attention - sounding stalkerish with murder being the final agenda. It's possible mark? A district attorney.
A senator's daughter, who's an assistant DA facing a huge death penalty trial.
A former FBI who's now a State Security Agent and also runs his own private security company.
An annoying step-mother and an annoying step-brother.
A father, a senator, who is used to getting exactly what he wants.
Lauren, an assistant district attorney is facing a huge upcoming trial which is getting some very heavy press. She's always worked extra long hours and tried to behave and appear publicly as expected by her father (a senator).
There's no time for a love life that isn't a business decision. However, now that the engagement ended, she's had six months of nothing but work and occasional visits with her friend, Julie.
Can Royce Walker, owner of Walker Brothers Security and State Security Advisor, handle what is in store for him when he takes on an off side secret job? Something isn't right and the Senator knows it.
Royce will risk it all, including his heart - to keep Lauren safe - knowing in doing so, he could lose her forever.
Let's just say - this is book 1 in this series - I can't wait to read book 2.
