What does it take you to forget past pain and let love take control?
Viviana Angelino took her family’s love and turned it into a family owned private security business that is just starting to see growth and expand into other areas with every new family member that comes onboard. Vivi loves what she and her family of misfits do but one small factor of following all the exact rules required to be legit is tripping her up. Especially when complete stickler for rules and regulations, Special Agent in Charge Colton Lang the FBI liaison that she is working with and throwing business her way. Now Colton believes in doing things the right and formal way, which Vivi is anything but, yet he cannot stay away from her and his desire for her, makes no sense since she does not even own a pair of Khaki’s. She is nothing like his prior relationships and her looks are over the top nonsense right down to her nose ring and skateboard. Colton knows trouble when he sees it and Vivi is nothing but a bad idea.
However, Vivi does have a striking resemblance to a movie star that is in the path of a serial killer who hates Oscar winners. Vivi steps into the latest winner Cara Ferrari’s fabulous strappy sandals and pretends to draw everyone one way while Cara goes another. However, Vivi finds that there is more than one secret hiding beside her in Nantucket and while no one wants to talk, Colton would like to do some investigating of his own one-on-one with Vivi sans any clothing. Colton got lucky being assigned this case and can keep a very special attentive eye on Vivi while trying to prove his muster with the FBI. Occasionally a rule needs to be broken and if Vivi can convince Colton of that, they really might have a great time and possibly a future together. That is after they figure out which was the tunnels go; who this woman is living in Cara’s house; and find out who the Red Carpet Killer is. But other than that, this relationship is moving along nicely.
The third book in this series tells the story of the founder of Guardian Angelinos Vivi’s story. She needed a great one and this storyline provides it with killers, mysteries, and mayhem along with a great alpha male by her side. Colton may talk as if it is 1954 but he lives in the 21 century and knows how to get the crook and take home the girl all before sundown.
