"Solid erotic romantic suspense"
Former FBI undercover agent turned private sleuth Connor
McCloud knows life in his profession means double-crosses
and betrayal. He bitterly reflects on the cruelty of life
now that he is little more than a hermit except for
serendipitous surveillance and distant photos of
individuals that end up destroying relationships. His
trusted friend Ed Riggs deceived him and set him up to
a fall though blackmailing circumstances caused the
actions. When Connor put Ed and his blackmailer,
clever maniac Kurt Novak, behind bars, he also lost the
woman of his dreams, Erin, daughter of the traitor.
When insiders abet Kurt enabling him to escape, Connor
knows that he and Erin must be revenge targets of this
lunatic. Though he expects that Erin detests him for
putting away her father, he vows to keep her safe, but
wonders how he will hide from her how much he loves her.
Erin reciprocates, but does not trust the man she loves.
Fans of erotic romantic suspense will enjoy the hot action-
packed thriller STANDING IN THE SHADOWS. The story line
moves quickly except for the heated scenes that take a bit
of acceptance at first as Erin mistrusts Connor yet
him as the goddess of sexual seduction to jump into bed
with her when they are BEHIND CLOSED DOORS. Still,
McKenna provides a powerful bodyguard tale filled with
tension, sexual and intrigues.
