    Story

    I've read a few BDSM books, but never one that explained it to the degree that this one does. What intrigued me was that the sub was an alpha male, and you don't read about that often. While it did get pretty intense at times, namely on the weekend trip they take, which kind of caught me off guard and I needed to adjust to, it mostly is just really captivating and powerful. Mac doesn't know how to completely let go and allow himself to be vulnerable, even though deep down that is all he really wants. Violet wants nothing more than to form a complete and all-encompassing bond with the right person, where all the walls are down and there is nothing but complete trust and love. Sometimes it feels like she pushed him too far even though she was never violent with him, ahem, the weekend trip, but she clearly gives him the option time and again to say 'no', which is actually the battle she is waging with him, to accept that it is okay to say no, and in the end he is really thankful to her for tearing down his walls. I guess I just feel embarressed for him, even though he doesn't exhibit any signs of regret or embarressment himself. His biggest challenge is to accept that there are boundaries and that does not make you weak; it actually makes you strong to be able to voice them and to trust that your partner will still love you and see your strength. Really Violet fought so hard for this because she saw the danger in never expressing a need to stop; that you can be pushed too far and she feared for him that he wouldn't ever use a safe word. I guess in that light I can understand why she goes to the extremes that she does, knowing that she isn't hurting him, but only helping him, and that he is so incredibly stubborn that he never would have given in to his true desires otherwise. The firt half of the book focuses on the relationship between Violet and Mac, and the second half is more about the criminal case Mac is investigating. The ending- I kind of thought it was who it was, but I wasn't certain. It is definitely one of those books that you think you have figured out, but there are just so many options for the villain. There is great commentary on the lifestyle itself as well, and how the world, as a whole, views and misconceives it. Overall, a great and passionate foray into the BDSM world without feeling like events and scenes happen for the thrill and shock value, though at times I'll admit I was a bit shocked. It's intense, but if you keep an open mind, not think about if you would do it, but why the characters do and what it means in their lives, then I think you will find it is worth a listen.

    Mackenzie "Mac" Nighthorse is a highly respected homicide detective and a career cop. There isn't a dangerous situation that can back him down. However, the personal becomes uncomfortably entangled in the professional when he goes undercover in a high class BDSM club as a male submissive in order to find a Dominatrix who is winning the trust and then murdering her chosen partners. When his path crosses Violet Siemanski's, he realizes he's found a Mistress willing to be his ally in finding the murderess.

    Story

    Lieutenant Tyler "Bud" Morrison is scoping out a seedy club when he sets eyes on Claire. She looks like a princess and she's completely out of her element in the wild dance-club. When she's abandoned by her friend and accosted by leering male revellers, he swoops in and plays the gallant knight to her fair damsel and takes her home. Expecting to give her a handshake and a nice-knowing-ya on her doorstep, he's stunned to hear her invite him inside......for coffee.

    Claire Parks is free of the leukaemia that has ravaged her body for nearly a decade. She's finally able to shake off her father's suffocating but well meaning strictures and is going to live a little. In case she hasn't told you, she's fine. The handsome stranger named Bud comes to her rescue and as he drives her home, she works up the courage to ask him inside......for coffee.

    They don't have any coffee, but they do spend the weekend together in naked splendour, where they engage in some seriously kinky iambic pentameter sex. After the course of the 48 hours, their idyllic weekend is busted when Claire's father comes to see her and when he sees Bud, instead of being upset and appalled, he's frankly grateful and relieved. Her father reveals to Bud how he has been terrified of leaving his girl alone in the big, bad world and he hopes he can leave her in his capable hands. His fears transfer to Bud and suddenly he's treating Claire with kid gloves. Claire is fine and refuses to live in another suffocating parent/child relationship, especially now that she's a healthy adult. Just when she's got Bud back where she wants him, the danger surrounding her friend, Suzanne, spills over into her life. The brutal torture/murder of a friend spurs Bud into protective mode and without thinking of her feelings, stashes her away, determined to protect her from a desperate man who is out to protect his secrets.

    This was a great book. There was hardly any time wasted on stupid ditherings between the hero and the heroine and they right away acknowledged that they loved each other. Whether or not they can live together is a different story however and I thought it was cute. Now that Claire has experienced hard, screaming sex, she wants more of it. (sheesh, who wouldn't) Unfortunately once Bud realizes that she used to be sick as a child, he treats her like porcelain and she's not liking it. When she comes to his office dressed for seduction, Bud's half hearted protestations wane in the face of her aggressive advances and it's really funny. I really liked Claire and her ability to embrace life and I thought Bud's attempts to be a gentleman was a hoot. We get some glimpses into John and Suzanne's HEA and I liked how they are still evolving as a couple.

    This was a very amusing, sexy and exciting sequel to Midnight Man. Well, it's not exactly a sequel. Apparently, the events in Midnight Run are coinciding with the events in Midnight Man and Midnight Run also sets up the story for Midnight Angel, so the three stories definitely need to be read in order or you are going to get confused. There isn't as much outside drama in this book as was in the first book, it mostly runs on self inflicted angst. There was a lot more humour in this one though as opposed to John and Suzanne's story but Bud is no less a man than John was. In fact, he's much more forceful in bed than John was. He's a little more commanding and dominant, too. Delicious. I can't wait to read Midnight Angel. Enjoy!

On her first excursion into the wild world of dating, she nets Bud, a tall, sexy, good-looking lumberjack. She won him fair and square, her prize for not dying. But after a weekend of wild sex, she discovers he's not what she thinks he is. Undercover police officer Lieutenant Tyler "Bud" Morrison can't believe his eyes. What's a 'princess' doing in a dance club known for its rough trade? She needs rescuing, and rescuing women is what Bud does best. He saw Claire first - finders keepers.

    Love the character's and the story line in this book. Eric Dove did and excellent job as the narrator. Does leave you hanging and waiting for the next book. As for me I have already gone out and bought it in paperback. What can I say, couldn't wait. Makes me want to move to this small protective town in Kentucky. What a kick the towns people are. I laughed until I cried at a lot of parts, in both of the book's I've read so far. Can't wait to get my hand's on the next one done in audio. if you are looking for a lot of sex don't buy this book. But if you are looking for a good story go for it!!

    It was just another after-work happy-hour bar downtown, where business professionals unwound with a few drinks, complained about the boss, maybe hooked up with someone for the night. Until something went terribly wrong. At first it was just a friction in the air. The noise intensified. The crowd seemed oppressive. Some sharp words were exchanged, some pushing and shoving. Then the madness descended. And after 12 minutes of chaos and violence, 80 people lay dead.
