Publisher's Summary

A Tragic Love Story

Charlotte Dennis's mission was clear: distract and misdirect CIA operative Ian Taggart by any means necessary. If she failed, she would never see her sister again. With her training, it should have been simple, but after one night in Ian's arms, she knew that saving her sister would mean losing the man of her dreams.

Ian was tracking a terrorist when he met the beautiful American daughter of a Russian mobster. His instincts told him Charlotte was trouble, but his body craved her like a drug and his heart would not be denied. She took his ring and his collar. For once he was truly happy. But as he closed in on his target, her betrayal cost him his mission while her sacrifice saved his life. As she died in his arms, Ian vowed he would never love again.

A Dangerous Reunion

For five years, Charlotte has thought of nothing but returning to her husband, her master. Working in the shadows, she has devoted herself to earning a chance to reclaim her place in Ian's life. But forgiveness isn't a part of Ian's vocabulary.

Nothing is more important to Ian Taggart than his new mission. But the information he needs is firmly in the hands of the woman who betrayed him. To catch his most dangerous prey, Ian will have to let Charlotte back into his life. As the hunt takes them to some of the world's most exotic locations, the danger grows and their passion reignites.

Will Ian forgive his wayward submissive...or lose her again?

A Great Story

Though there wasn’t many love scenes in this book, the romantic story was excellent. It has a lot of intrigue in it.

Love this series (gets better as it goes on IMO)

In my opinion, this series just keeps getting better. I haven't read all the books, but I love that this series is such a blend of action thriller and D/s romance. Like James Bond movies except with much more sex and genuine love.

This specific book is a good blend of action/spy story and romance/sex. I would say there's a bit more emphasis on the romance part than the action movie part, though. Like 40% spy movie and 60% romance. I'm curious to see if some of the books have more emphasis on the action/spy stuff.

Also I love the line the author walks with the characters teetering between utter vulnerability and being stubbornly strong-willed.

Love reading this series!

Yes!! Finally Ian's story

Would you listen to Love and Let Die again? Why?

Yes, definitely have been waiting for the big man to fall. We all know the bigger they are the harder they fall.

Which scene was your favorite?

My favorite scene is when Ian realizes he cannot live without Charlotte although he has done it for the past five years. Ian realizes there is a possibility that Charlotte will never return to him and what he once thought to be true might actually come to fruition. Our alpha forages through literally forcing his will and his lady love to live.

Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

Extreme laughter ensued, Charlotte is the perfect match for Ian. Listening to Ian try to work through all of Charlotte's advances and redemption tactics is quite humorous.

love this sexy, funny, action packed BDSM series.

I don't usally tend to read series, but I was looking for something with some BDSM in it. If this series was like a movie I'd say it was a action, comedy with HOT, explicit sex scenes. I would recommend to read in order, because some of the bad guys do go into the next book. The only sad thing is the series are up to book 15 and some of the newer ones are not on the Audible Romance Package. I am just starting book 6 so maybe by the time I get closer to the end they will be. if not I will definitely get the books. The are for sure my favorites from Lexi Blake.

wow!

Omg! Ian has definitely met his match in Charlotte. Their relationship is nearly toxic due to circumstances and betrayals in the past. Lexi Blake had me sobbing, snickering, and at times feeling overwhelming hatred. She spins you into this story of the most hard headed if men and the equally stubborn woman who adored him. Ryan West is definitely the voice of this series.

Great dialogue. Hilarious being in the thoughts of the characters, in this case, Ian Taggart. Ryan West's reading was delightful and timing wonderful.

Ian

I have all of Lex I Blake books and now also own all the audio, as an English woman I was, at first, not too happy at the English and Irish accents but the further into the series the more I have got used to them. Love Ian's story.

Another winner...she just keeps getting better!

What did you like most about Love and Let Die?

All of her books are great but with this series she just keeps raising the standard. If you read or listen from the start you will become more embroiled in the characters and their lives.

Who was your favorite character and why?

I have to love this big guy as he has so many hidden parts to his personality that he tries, unsuccessfully, to hide. He is the glue that provides the home and hearth that most of us crave, not that he would admit that, he likes to be seen as mean and caring but he is anything but. His character continues to develop from here on in with the series too.

What about Ryan West’s performance did you like?

He gives the character the grit that I always expected. I have all these as books but then got the audio version so I could listen and work. I do not regret the double financial aspect and can't wait for the next in the series.

Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

Definitely.

Any additional comments?

Lexi Blake is very talented and I love the depth of her characters. She had never disappointed me yet. Definitely worth your hard earned pennies! If you like this then look for the off shoots as they are also well worth your time and money.
