Product Description


“A gripping and suspenseful read.” (Library Journal on Nightfire)

“For a heart-thudding, red hot read, grab any Lisa Marie Rice novel! Her books are deliciously addictive. Give me a dangerous, seductive Lisa Marie Rice hero any day . . . or night. ” (Shannon McKenna, NYT bestselling author)

“In a story fraught with danger and scorchingly hot love scenes, Rice draws her readers into a modern-day fairy tale with complicated and intense characters.” (Romantic Times on Into the Crossfire)

From the Back Cover

Chloe Mason’s childhood memories consist of seemingly endless hospital stays. Now all grown up and healthy, her determination to fill the gaping holes in her past leads her to her long-lost brother, Harry . . . which brings Harry’s friend and business partner, Mike Keillor, crashing into her life and her heart.

Former Marine Force Recon sniper and SWAT officer—a martial arts expert and owner of a successful security company—Mike can deal coolly and efficiently with any threat . . . until he’s blindsided by something he never expected: fierce, fiery passion . . . and love.

But when Chloe inadvertently crosses the Russian mob, Mike realizes that evil is darkening his world once again. He has already lost his family; he will not lose the woman who enflames him, who makes him whole. Failure is not an option.

HASH(0x9c344888) out of 5 stars Chloe Mason vs. RBK Security Inc. Feb. 26 2012
By Elf2060 - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback

Overall: 4.5 stars
Sensuality level: 3 (There are sex scenes, tastefully done...but kind of sweet for Rice)

My Musings:

Mike Keillor is the third leg of the triad that comprises the RBK Security, Inc. company. A retired SWAT officer who served in the military as a Marine Force Recon sniper, Mike has never recovered from the childhood trauma that orphaned him and ultimately resulted in his finding his brothers of the heart (Sam Reston and Harry Bolt) at the foster home they all shared. The unalloyed happiness of the others does little to eliminate Mike's tendency to drink too much and engage in indiscriminate one night stands until the arrival of Chloe Mason and her bombshell announcement. Recognizing a kindred spirit who still bears scars from her own childhood, Mike feels compelled to offer the fragile woman his unconditional protection and support no matter what his personal cost.

Chloe Mason has survived insurmountable odds despite having had 55 broken bones and a loveless childhood. She is fragile physically but has developed an indomitable spirit thanks to her inner strength and the brief period of nurturing received at a private school. Her desire to help other oppressed women places her in severe danger but also gives her the undeniable opportunity to blossom and grow into a contributing member of society.

A great conclusion to the trilogy about three closely-knit men who forged their relationship in the shared hardships of their youth and honed their skills in various branches of the military before rejoining to form a successful security agency in San Diego that also has a mission to assist abused women. The two distinctive women from the previous books ("Into the Crossfire" and "Hotter Than Wildfire") also make appearances in this tale as they add their unique skills to the resources available to protect Chloe after she becomes a target for foreign assailants through her work with abused women. Mike must conquer his own demons even as he searches for acceptance and forgiveness from the woman that he will do anything to keep safe, from himself as well as those who would seek to harm her.

I love the males in this series because they are so strong and capable yet are transformed into mush by the women (and girls) in their lives. The strong sense of puzzlement depicted when faced with a crying female, the careful tiptoeing of the hulking alpha male who has a stern conversation with his genitalia and the unconditional surrender gifted to the female(s) in his life all make these great reads for me. I found the torture scenes a little bit graphic for comfort but I certainly am even more impressed and dismayed by the idea that the elite military forces willingly undergo such torture as part of their training. I do think that the weaknesses in Mike's home defense were a little uncharacteristic (although understandably necessary to move the plot along) given what the guys do for a living but I feel that altogether this was a great story and a fitting end to the trilogy. I have hopes that the secondary characters briefly mentioned will get their own time to shine (especially the wiz back in Boston). A thrilling romantic read packed with intense emotions, action and suspense.

Thanks for the opportunity to review this for the Seductive Musings blog

HASH(0x9c344d14) out of 5 stars Odd book with an unlikable hero Nov. 6 2012
By JLL - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition
There were some parts of this book I enjoyed, but overall it just left me feeling kind of "blech." First off, I hated the icky murder/rapey accusations near the beginning of the book. It did NOT start me with a good feeling about the hero. I get that he had some pretty serious emotional/mental issues, but I could never really move past that in my mind. He seemed to have a genuine sex addiction (Chloe herself calls him an addict, and I would have to agree), yet he gets no treatment for it. He's "cured" by the love of a good woman. Doesn't work that way! The characters fall in insta-lust that was just so unbelievable to me (every look or touch is "lightning bolts" and "sparks"...ugh). I also didn't feel like the characters had depth. I didn't see that Chloe had a personality. She's described almost like an otherworldly creature floating through life. She doesn't have much agency in the book, mostly just reacting to what others around her are doing. As I said, Mike was kind of a icky hero for me. He has heavy issues but doesn't seem to acknowledge or accept that. I've liked flawed heroes before, but they showed some sort of genuine awareness of their problems AND weren't perfectly at peace even at the end. I didn't sense that Mike had really dealt with his addiction, and it also didn't make much sense to me. He was supposedly this crusader for abused women and prostitutes, yet he has a sex addiction and, while he doesn't sleep with prostitutes, he certainly exploits women to feed his addiction. (He admits he manipulates women and knows exactly what to say to get them into bed.) I don't know enough about addiction to say that wouldn't be possible, but on the surface it seems somewhat implausible. Plus, he sleeps with the supposed love of his life yet uses no condom. Yuck! God knows what diseases he's picked up during his years of addictive behavior, even if he hadn't been sleeping around the last few months. Chloe can't get pregnant, but she doesn't really explain that to him--he just goes ahead with it. Seems like if he truly cared about Chloe and had changed his ways, he would certainly have used a condom or not had sex if he didn't have one. Yuck. He wasn't very tender with Chloe. She was entirely inexperienced with men but the first time they have sex is standing up in a shower the same day she was physically assaulted (and nearly raped)! Sounds romantic, eh?

I did like some of the other characters in the book, and some of the plot was unique. I thought the book spent a little too much time in the villain's head--he wasn't that interesting to me--but there were some moments the suspense worked for me. Still, I ended this book partly squicked out and partly bored.

HASH(0x9c344d8c) out of 5 stars Too much ugly Feb. 11 2012
By Jane Butler - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition Verified Purchase
i know that this author likes to make sure you know how bad her villains are by adding some very uncomfortable imagery from their past(gang rape..torture..etc) and i can usually skip that paragraph and move on. But this one had a little too much for you to skip. And frankly it just skeezzes me to have a nice sex scene between the main characters and a prostitute torture scene in the next scene. It is like being tricked into watching a snuff film. Not what i am looking for in my romance novels.

HASH(0x9c344b34) out of 5 stars I REALLY LOVE A FLAWED HERO !!!!!!! March 9 2012
By C. M. Jones - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition Verified Purchase
This was my favorite of the Protectors Novels. I find it thought provoking to see how far someone will go with self-abasement for a percieved wrong doing (guilt). Mike had some serious baggage to overcome and did so with the help of a "good woman". I love stories with a hero who is flawed but strong enough to overcome. Chloe had alot of issue of her own but with the help given in her recent past she has become strong. A truely great heroine for our tortured hero. This book does have alot of dark moments but they are part of this story and I didn't feel they were overdone or out of place. This is classic LMR and I await her next novel with anticipation.

HASH(0x9c344e1c) out of 5 stars I'm questioning RBK's professionalism... July 3 2013
By Kathy Davie - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
Third in the Protectors romantic suspense series about a security company and the "brothers" who started it. The couple focus is on Crissy/Chloe and Mike Keillor.

My Take
The start of this story will break your heart and keep it hurting. Chloe is such a generous soul and so furious with her parents for their choices. For their neglect. But fortuitous events have made her a wealthy woman with less of a burden from her past and the opportunity to make things right.

She finds so much more than she had expected. A family. Familial love. The potential for an amazing romantic love until Mike shuts down.

It's around this point that the story starts to fall apart for me. Here's these three guys who are brilliant with a very successful security business. A cop who likes Mike. And none of them think of checking surveillance cameras. WTF? It takes teacher Chloe calling her PI to track down the proof. Hullo?

Do these guys consider how they would break into their own apartments? 'Cause reading of how easily Nikitin gets in is just downright ridiculous.

The story picks up again with Chloe volunteering at a women's shelter where she is seen as a threat to a particular business. And, with the change in that business' protocols and security, Chloe is a threat who needs to be humbled. And, snicker, they don't know what they're getting into...bwa-ha-ha...

We finally learn what happened to Mike's family. Why he feels such a need to drown his pain. The guilt he carries.

God, I know that variety makes the world go round, but do we really need this kind of variety within "humanity"? These men disgust me. I'll never be able to understand this need, this desire to hurt, to abuse. When Consuelo escapes with her "treasure", it breaks my heart at how little she trusts anyone.

The Story
Life was great, fabulous, until Mike realized he was an unwanted burden in his brothers' lives. It's a shock, and Mike takes refuge in his one vice. One he quickly realizes is too disgusting for words, and he runs his disgust off. Lucky for him as it saves his butt.

Chloe Mason is desperate with hope. Her parents died recently and the documents she found have set her on a new course, one she could never have expected.

And Chloe is a revelation of light for Mike. She's his salvation, and one he has promised to never touch again.

Chloe doesn't need to work, but she does need to stay occupied, especially since that stupid confession she made to Mike, and her compassion finds relief in helping women who are abused. Only her sympathy reverberates within women who have been imported to San Diego as sex slaves.

The Characters
Chloe Mason spent almost her entire childhood having surgery or recovering from it. Her very-distant parents, Rebecca and George Mason, rarely visited her in hospital; shortly after her release, she went to boarding school. Sister Mary Michael became the mother of Chloe's heart. Amanda Box is a private investigator Chloe hired after she discovered her parents' secrets. She's good with street surveillance too.

Mike Keillor, an ex-Marine and ex-SWAT with the SDPD, is the third "brother" in RBK Security Inc. And he has issues---Mom, Dad, Eddie, and Jeff---he drowns in alcohol and sex.

Mike's brothers and partners in RBK Security Inc. are Harry Bolt, former Delta, who found his happily ever after with Ellen Palmer an accountant by day and the sultry singer Eve by night with their three-month-old, Grace (Hotter Than Wildfire: (Protectors, #2)), and Sam Reston, an ex-SEAL married to Nicole, who runs a translating agency, Wordsmith, (Into the Crossfire (Protectors, #1)). They've just had a baby, Meredith (Hotter Than Wildfire). Marisa is their very compassionate receptionist. Barney is another of their people.

Lieutenant Bill Kelly is SDPD and a former coworker of Mike's. He's got a hard job ahead of him when a cokehead, Mila Koravich, is found beaten to death. Special Agent Aaron Welles has helped RBK on their pet project.

Marion is the director of the shelter where Chloe volunteers. Rudy is a computer hacker friend of Nicole's.

Franklin Sands operates a very high-class brothel, oops, I mean, "men's club", the Meteor Club, in San Diego. Anatoly Nikitin is his new Russian partner with a very hardnosed approach to how the house will operate. Ivan, Lyov, and Dimitri are on Nikitin's security team; Pirat is a computer consultant. Consuelo is one of his women and getting too cocky. Elena is Consuelo's best friend and was the first to speak with Chloe. Larry Cameron runs a used car dealership and loves to hurt women, and he has lots of company. Big names.

The Lost Ones Fund is where half the profits from RBK go, helping women escape abusive situations. Harry's purpose is to make up for his baby sister, Crissy, being murdered by his addict mother's vicious boyfriend; Sam wants to prevent another child from being thrown out; and, Mike pays for his feelings of guilt over the murder of his family.

The Cover
Well, from the great graphic on the cover, I'm not sure what Harry is fussed about. Looks like Crissy is able to hold her own with the grip she's got on Mike's undershirt.

The closest I can guess on the title is that Chloe is Mike's Nightfire, the light in the cave of his life.
