She has no way of knowing that her future will be filled with amazing if not LETHAL NIGHTS with her very own Dragon.
Ilya Dragonovich's past is steeped in darkness, touched by evil, but that does not stop him from protecting those who need it most. He makes a deal with Emma to save her house, turning it into a safe house for Brute Force Security Agency. All she has to do is keep it a secret.

However, when danger explodes around her, he comes running and will do everything he can to protect her. He's done protecting her from himself, Emma Jane is going to be his.
LETHAL NIGHTS is a fantastic, consuming, face fanning read. Fans of author Lora Leigh's Brute Force series have already met this couple and in this offering, they finally get their HEA. I loved how Emma pretended not to be afraid of Ilya, whom she had taken to calling Dragon and kept commenting on the dragon tattoo on his face. She claimed it was winking and flirting with her and every time she mentioned that dragon he would become a bit flustered. As you read LETHAL NIGHTS you will find why the dragon means so much to him and why it is on his face.
I thought it was kind of cute that Ilya really did try to stay away from Emma, knowing that his past could and would put her in danger, though he had to help her out when he learned her ex was causing her so much trouble. When she is attacked he is there and nothing is going to make him leave. There are a few moments that will have you laughing, especially when Emma puts up a fight or when the ex breaks in and mentions her sexual desires that he thinks she needs psychological help with because they aren't natural - Ilya finds them just right by the way. I found the ending a bit of a surprise, though it had been hinted to, it really comes out of nowhere. . . and yes you will have to read this action-packed read to find out what happens.
If you want a steamy--and I do mean steamy--romance; a hero that takes no prisoners; a heroine who is re-learning who she is and her strength; action, danger, intrigue, and a sexy, flirty dragon tattoo then get your hands on LETHAL NIGHTS.
