I love love love Tessa Bailey’s Line of Duty Novels and I am so sad that this is the last in the series. However, in Staking His Claim Ms. Bailey sends her wonderful characters out with a bang! Matt and Lucy make the words on the page dance a sexy tango. Ms. Bailey seduces her readers with passionate characters and real life scenarios. I could absolutely feel the frustration and attraction from Matt when he discovered the woman he had been with is not who he thought. This is one of the things I love about these novels. It is hard for a writer to make her readers feel what the characters do but Ms. Bailey does it magically. Staking His Claim weaves beautifully sensual scenes with strong characters and smart plotlines. In other words, it’s fanta-bulous! 🙂
