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.

Chloe Mason vs. RBK Security Inc. Feb. 26 2012
By Elf2060 - Published on
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

Odd book with an unlikable hero Nov. 6 2012
By JLL - Published on
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.

Too much ugly Feb. 11 2012
By Jane Butler - Published on
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.

I REALLY LOVE A FLAWED HERO !!!!!!! March 9 2012
By C. M. Jones - Published on
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.

A good one June 12 2013
By claudette valliere - Published on
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
Good well written book. Loads of good dialouge.

Mike Keillor is part of RBK a high end security company. He is in fact a partner in the firm. He's an ex Marine and also worked SWAT for the SDPD. He and his brothers Harry Bolt and Sam Reston are all ex-Spec Op military and have made RBK a highly successful security company.

Mike is the only unmarried member of RBK.

He spends loads of time with his partners wives and children. In fact he spends all his time with his brothers, the wives and kids.

He's beginning to get the idea that he's imposing. Nothing great. Just looks between the husbands and wives. He really, really needs to get a life of his own and let his brothers and the wives have some private time, minus him.

Mike is also into sex. Lots of sex. Lately he doesn't care who his partner is and he's usually drunk.

This last time he picked up a real lowlife of a woman. He was screwing her and she was demanding he hurt her. Whoa. Not Mikes style especially since RBK runs an underground RR for battered women. No way is Mike interested in hurting any woman.

Mike cuts things short and takes a good look at where he ended up. He's appalled to note that he was so drunk he never noticed he's in a dump and his partner is an addict. The woman is screaming at him to hurt her and calling him every name in the book.

Mike gets the heck out and since he'd been drinking he left his SUV there at ran back. Five miles. No problem for Mike.

Enter Chloe Mason. Chloe is the daughter of less than loving parents. She's spent a decade in hospitals just getting enough health to walk. Chloe moves slowly and has loads of problem just walking.

Chloe's parents were killed in a car accident and she is the sole beneficiary of an estate worth Millions of dollars. She also learns that she was adopted and has a brother. The brother is Harry Bolt one of the partners at RBK.

Chloe of course hires a PI to find Harry Bolt. Once she locates him she goes to RBK. She's nervous as hell. She has no idea how Harry is going to take the news. She takes her time and lays out her story for Harry, Sam and Mike. Will Harry even want a sister??

Harry is flabbergasted and ecstatic. His little sister is alive. All these years he assumed his little sister, Chrissy, was dead. He himself killed the brute who he thought killed her. He had two broken legs, courtesy of that brute but still managed to kill the man.

No one ever told him his sister was alive. He assumed she was dead and no one told him anything different. He was one angry kid and for years thought his Sisters death was something he could have prevented. Much to Chloes heartfelt joy Harry is ecstatic that she's alive and has come to him.

Mike is floored by Chloe's beauty and sweetness. He is also overjoyed that Harry's sister is miraculously alive after all these years. Talk about a miracle.

In the middle of this joyous occassion the SDPD shows up.

The detective wants to talk with Mike. Mike can't figure out why till the detective tells him that the woman he was with last night was in the hospital after being beaten very badly. She named him as her attacker. Mike is floored. He tells the officer what happened but evidence he was there is what the SDPD is seeing and of course the victims charges.

Mike, Harry and Sam all head for the PD.

Chloe gets in contact with the PI she used to find Harry.

Chloes PI immediately starts looking at the cameras between the apartment and Mikes home. Mike ran home and he's on every camera heading home. The timeline on the camera footage proves the time Mike left and when he arrived at his house. Its proof that the woman was lying. Her timeline is way the hell off. Mike is cleared. Mike thinks Chloe is the greatest. He's drawn to her like he's never been drawn to a woman before. In fact he and Chloe almost head for the sack.

However brother Harry knows Mike and his lifestyle for the past few years. He tells Mike hands off. Mike obliges but he hates it. He's really attracted to Chloe and she is attracted to him.

Mike cools off around Chloe and she can't understand it. Its as if they are just friends now with no future. She's flumoxed at the change in Mike.

Chloe's health improves with Mike teaching her physical fitness. She also works part time at the RBK shelter for battered women.

Chloe lands in a mess when she tries to help some of the sex slaves at the Meteor Club. The club is run by Russians and the women are slaves to whatever a paying customer wants.

Chloe never gives the women advice. She just listens to the stories. The Russians are not happy and send a couple of thugs to let Chloe know what goes on at the Meteor Club is none of her business. Of course Mike gets there and kicks some serious ass.

Just a great story with great dialogue and some super hot guys and the women they love.

Five stars
