Greycen Craig has been in the Federal Witness Protection program for the last five years and was pretty much a model witness until she heard about attack that injured her sister and placed her in the hospital.  Greycen might have been able to walk away from her sister in order to save her, but there is no way that she won’t go to her sister’s side now—even if it means putting herself in deadly danger by leaving the program.

 

Liam Burgess is an FBI agent who is known for being the sensible one and all that, but there was one memorable time when Liam not only went crazy, but has spent the last five year trying to find the woman who brought out the unexpected in him: the woman he met and married, and who disappeared all within 24 hours.  When a lead tells him that a recent hit-and-run victim could be just connected to his mystery woman, Liam makes it is mission to go there and wait to see who shows up.

 

Greycen never forgot those wonderful hours in Liam’s arms and why she had to leave him without word and disappear, but she was totally amazed to find him in her sister’s room. The same shock seems to find Liam, but for a different reason. He thought he could handle what Greycen did to him just by being in the room—a very wrong assumption, he quickly finds out.  Greycen ends up telling Laim everything. Liam offers the help of his team to not only keep her safe, but to end the nightmare once and for all. At first, Greycen declines and lets herself be persuaded to accept the offer instead of trying to protect both her sister and herself alone.  However, when Greycen sees just how full Liam’s life is, she takes an action that will place her in even more danger, unless Liam can get to her first.  The next few hours will decide just what Greycen and Liam’s future will be, and if they will be able to stay together and safe, forever on the run, or forever apart and alone.

 

Two souls found and recognized each other instantly only to be torn apart by murder. When given a second chance, can that hope of love finally get the chance to happen, or will it be denied forever?  Liam and Greycen will discover this answer and many more in Taste Me Deadly.  Liam and Greycen could not have been more different, and yet it was clear that they were soul mates, and they just needed the chance to fulfill that destiny.  It didn’t surprise me at all that Liam stepped right in to take control of the situation and protect Greycen and her sister.  Greycen might have been a free spirit, but when she loved someone, she would do anything to protect them, even if it meant running from them.  I really enjoyed watching as Liam slowly helped Greycen overcome her fears, and he showed her that they belonged together.  When the final answers came clear, and the entire events of the night that changed Greycen’s life became clear, I discovered that I had figured out part of the answer, but not all of it. I have a feeling that Liam and Greycen’s life will be full of unexpected and wonderful things.  Taste Me Deadly is a great suspense story that proves once again that depending upon those you love is always the best way, even if it’s a recent loved one.

Some couples just click. Others require a hard hat and a stud finder. Tulle and Tulips, Book 3Monday mornings have a reputation for sucking, and today is no different for Burton Anderson. One year ago, his “perfect” life full of prestige, money, success and travel crumbled in the glaring light of betrayal. This morning? This close to making his new construction business a success, a date gone awry has left him handcuffed to a toilet in a housewares store. Naked. And the first customer of the day is coming down his aisle. Planning and shopping for other couples’ Big Day is about as wild and crazy as buttoned-up Leigh Schyuler gets. Until she gets an eyeful of Hearth and Home’s daily special. He’s definitely a “designer” temptation while she’s “off the rack”. But there are risks, and then there are risks. Burton isn’t sure he can once again trust his heart to a woman who holds the power to ruin him. And Leigh discovers too late that indulging in a little no-strings sex is tying her dream of Devoted Love into hopeless knots...Warning: Contains a hard-hatted, hard-bodied hero who’s good with his hands, and a woman who’d like him to build a bridge over her sexual boundaries. Nuts and bolts never had it so good.

Burton Anderson finds himself in a bit of a sticky situation. He awakens handcuffed to a toilet in his current employer’s store.  If he plans to keep his job he must rely on the good will of a beautiful woman.

 

The last thing Leigh Schyuler expected to find when shopping for another couple’s wedding day was a naked man…a sexy naked man.  Not usually one to indulge in wildness, Burton tempts her to acts of whimsy.  No strings sex is just what the doctor ordered but at the end of the day will these two love and leave or find that happiness begins in housewares?

 

Nikki Duncan continues her Tulle and Tulips series nicely with Handcuffed in Housewares.  Burton and Leigh have a wonderful chemistry that is not only sexy but fun.  The first books in the series dealt with some heavy issues and it was nice to have some laughs in this installment.  Handcuffed in Housewares still deals with substantial emotions as both Burton and Leigh try to overcome their own issues to find and believe in love but there are plenty of laughs to go around.

He’s everything she craves. She’s everything he dreads. Journalist Lana Quinn has a way with hard-hitting news. The story she’s uncovered has potential, but she needs the help of her best friend’s FBI team. She’s been rescued by them, worked with them, and partied with them, but convincing the second in command to believe her theory—that a killer’s touch sets off a lethal allergic reaction—is a frustrating challenge. Especially since he excites her, body and mind. He’s a danger she shouldn’t indulge. Aidan Burgess is resistant to helping Lana, but not for the reason she thinks. She has a knack for landing herself in trouble, which means she needs protection. Protecting her means staying near her, a journalist, who like all journalists uses whatever—and whomever—it takes to get her story. It’s a case he wants to refuse. Especially since she lights a fire in his blood. She’s a danger he can’t afford. As Lana follows up on lead after deadly lead, learning to trust and rely on each other becomes their only lifesaving hope. If their pride doesn’t become their final pitfall. Warning: This title contains a grudge-holding hero who gives “kiss my ass” new meaning, a heroine out to prove herself, and a danger that dares them to trust.

Journalist Lana Quinn believes she’s found her next big story but she knows she is going to need some help if she plans to ferret out the killer.  Lana reaches out to her friends who know how to use the gifts God gave them. Unfortunately, the person she has to convince is the one person who can’t seem to stand being around her.

Aidan Burgess can’t stand to watch Lana place herself in trouble again.  It seems all this woman knows how to do is find trouble.  Knowing that she is planning on pursuing another story with murder at the center doesn’t set well with Aidan.  However, he knows that once Lana sets her mind to something there is no stopping her.  Will he be able to protect her from herself and keep his feelings for her in check? The last thing in the world he wants is to fall for a freaking journalist.

A Killing Touch is another great Sensory Ops story from author Nikki Duncan.  I found the plot at the center of this romance to be very intriguing.  The mystery of it all was great.  The chemistry between Lana and Aidan is very fiery.  Aidan has a bad attitude when it comes to Lana because of a past experience with journalists.  It irked me a little because it took him so long to come around to Lana.  The sexual attraction between them is fabulous from the beginning but it took a little while for Aidan’s heart to become involved. It is awesome to get some page time with previous characters from the series.  They provided plenty of laughs in the middle of the suspenseful action.  A Killing Touch is full of danger, passion and nail-biting suspense
