Product Description


"McLarty's subtle emotional intensity is particularly compelling as he presents horrifying scenes without theatrics." (AudioFile 2010) --This text refers to an out of print or unavailable edition of this title.

From the Back Cover

Sam Reston’s world is dangerous, uncertain, violent . . . with no room in it for the helpless and weak. Then the most beautiful woman in the world moves next door to him . . .

Nicole Pearce’s life is complicated enough. The last thing she needs is to get involved with a secretive, hard-bodied, hard-headed neighbor. Yet Sam leaves her breathless—her body tingling with desire—and it takes every ounce of her fabled control to resist offering herself to him, no strings attached. What she doesn’t know is that Sam Reston is on an undercover assignment . . . and she’s about to step into the crossfire.

Never has Sam ached for a woman so badly. Now Nicole’s in grave danger and he will become her shield. Because a terrorist plot hatched half a world away is heading to their doorstep—and it can be derailed by only one man and one woman.

Far less than her best July 29 2010
By Reacher Fan 1909 - Published on
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
Lisa Marie Rice is one of my favorite steamy romantic suspense writers, but you'd never know it by this book. Closer to 2.5 stars than 3, Into the Crossfire is about as cliche ridden a book as I've seen lately. I realized in the first 7 pages, after reading how breathless former SEAL turned security specialist Sam Reston was each time he saw the 'most beautiful woman in the world', Nicole Pearce, I was in for a real disappointment, but I kept hoping. Pages and pages of hero and heroine with pounding hearts, the loss of coherent conversation, and, well, breathlessness. Never have I read a more overwrought opening chapter for a romantic suspense novel. It was classic old-fashioned bodice ripper stuff, only worse.

Unfortunately, the first third of the book could easily have been shortened by 60 or more pages to create a more tightly written story line - or at least one that had the kind of suspense and action one expects in romantic suspense. All that breathlessness and so little story made for dull reading. There was the typical sex scene where - I'm sure you'll be shocked - they were breathless and neither could speak due to all that chemistry and .......... probably oxygen deprivation from all that breathlessness.

The story finally gets moving, sort of, in the last third of the book. Unfortunately, time is past for developing the kind of thrills a romantic suspense novel should have. Heroine is saved, hero is well, heroic, bad guys are foiled, but chief bad guy goes to England to try again. Predictable. Character and relationship development is pretty much non-existent.

Into the Crossfire read like a book outline heavily padded with melodrama. Suspense was in short supply, kind of like breath. A real disappointment from a usually reliable author.

Disappointed but still hopeful July 28 2010
By Kelly M. Sullivan - Published on
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
I have been waiting impatiently for LMR's newest book and was a little disappointed. It was a great plot, great couple but she seemed to spend way too much time on background information and not enough on the characters falling in love or even interacting together. They seemed to only speak twice and the love affair wasn't developed. When they first hooked up romantically I looked down and half the book was already read. I like great dialogue that shows a connection between couples and LMR has ALWAYS delivered. I hope that now that she used 3/4 of this book to set up the plot the next two books will focus on the couples interacting together too.

When an alpha-hero tears off your $150 La Perla panties does he have to buy you new ones? Oct. 18 2010
By Hooked - Published on
Format: Paperback
Security company owner Sam ogles Nicole the owner of the translation company across the hall. Nicole's company is sent an encrypted email warning of a terrorist attack. Bad guys try to hunt down the email and silence Nicole. Sam must save her.

Pros: I love the way Rice writes. Her books are well-paced and involving. This book has a better plot than most and the terrorist sub plot is very interesting. The characters are typical: beautiful heroine with family baggage paired with alpha-male hero from a bad upbringing, with an elite military background, and with an enormous hard-to-control Johnson at the mere thought of the heroine. This hero also has a clear disregard for expensive lingerie. It's a formula, but it works for me because I love the internal dialog Rice applies to her heroes. Her heroines are, um, easy, to put it nicely, and succumb to the intense sexuality of the hero on the first date -- though she's never done anything like that before, of course not. (Hey, they only have 300 pages to get it on, she can't be too coy.) In this book Nicole runs out while Sam is sleeping after the first time and then avoids his calls. This leads to some really good writing as Sam tries to figure out what turned her off and how to get her back.

Cons: It was a really good plot until the TSTL* moment when Nicole delivers herself on a silver platter to the bad guys without leaving any breadcrumbs for Sam to follow. The cop Mark doesn't behave like a trained cop when he goes along with Sam on his rescue mission.

Overall this is a fun read. Again, it follows a formula, but it's one I'll read over and over again because I love this author's voice and there are enough subtle differences in plot and character to trick me into thinking I'm reading a different book. Highly recommended 4 stars.

*TSTL--To Stupid To Live. The moment at which an intelligent heroine loses her brains and does something so incredibly stupid you can't relate to her anymore. (Imagine Michelle Obama bored at a state dinner suddenly starting a food fight to liven things up. Wouldn't happen.) Sometimes used as a plot device to quickly achieve dramatic tension, the heroine does something dumb putting herself in danger so that the hero can save her. A TSTL moment is when it backfires on the author and you say, "Oh, come on," and close the book.

Okay Aug. 2 2010
By Erica - Published on
Format: Paperback
This book is okay and I will read the rest of the Protectors series but the story is missing something. I have read all of Ms. Rice's books and I always go back to the Midnight series. I thinks what is missing from the other books is the characters have fun, get to know each, then the DANGER EXPLODES!!!!!! Yeah everyone is involved in some dangerous stuff but . . .I can't wait for the Midnight series to continue, I heard the next book is about Jacko.

Wow, so bad on so many levels March 28 2013
By denak - Published on
Format: Mass Market Paperback
I try very hard to finish any book I pick up but this book is so bad that I had to put it down after 107 pages. I really don't know what to say, it is so bad.
First: the author did little to no research on the military. One does not "try out" for the Navy Seals. This isn't junior league baseball. There is a very in depth selection process that one has to go through that literally takes months to achieve. One does not try out. Secondly, servicemembers in the Navy are NOT soldiers. They are sailors but the author repeatedly refers to the male character as a soldier. It may sound nit picky but yes, terminology does matter. If you are supposedly writing a book where the main character has a certian profession, one should at least learn enough about it to basic terminology correctly especially if that character is in the military. To do otherwise is disrespectful to the men and women in uniform. They are not interchangeable and each branch has terminology and traditions specific to them and that should be respected.
Two: As mentioned in other reviews, the writing is redundant. The author will write long passages on how Nicole misses her former life and then has Nicole say the same thing. One gets a weird sense of deja vu.
Third: The straw that broke the camel's back occurs on page 107. The reader sits through the last 20 pages or so of Nicole pouring out her heart to Sam about her father's illness and ends with him putting her hand on his "rock hard penis" Really?????? He supposedly respects her more because of her devotion to her dad and he shows that by putting her hand on his ****. Wow, nothing says respect like a little bulge rubbing.

I could go on but I already invested way to much time on this book. Hopefully, others will be spared this and move on to other authors that write this genre way better.
