Blurb: Canadian detective Kieran Fox goes undercover to infiltrate a violent drug ring. US Marshal Jubilee Mason is worried about him, but has his hands full hunting one of the most wanted men, recently spotted in a Lone Trail brothel…
US Marshal Jubilee Mason is separated from his lover, Canadian detective Kieran Fox, who goes undercover infiltrating a violent drug ring. Jubilee worries about Kieran throwing himself into his undercover assignments, and this one almost destroys him. Meanwhile back in Lone Trail, Jubilee is on the hunt for one of the US Marshals’ most wanted men; a former detective who murdered his wife and has been seen in an unlikely place–a brothel–by an even more an unlikely witness: Dillon DePriest, the newly reinstated, happily married Sheriff of Lone Trail…
Review: This story is part of a series and must be read in order. Jubilee and Kieran are on the trail of Reggie Jones, both men knowing that when the case is over they have to go their separate ways. Kieran throws himself into the undercover world to bring down another drug cartel, a case that nearly kills Kieran and ends up taking him back to Jubilee. Jubilee goes back to life in Lone Trail and getting his office sorted but he is soon on the trail of a man who is one of the Marshal’s most wanted, the tip coming from Dillon DePriest and the sighting was in Eva’s brothel.
This story continues where Longing ended, Jubilee and Kieran both admitting their love but unable to compromise, separating when the case of Reggie Jones ends and eventually crossing paths again as Kieran shuts down another drug cartel. The path to love is never easy but when you throw in living in two different countries, high stress jobs and undercover assignments it gets to be a sticky mess where it begins to look worse than hopeless… especially when Jubilee discovers just what lengths Kieran goes to, to get to the top boss.
Ah, D.J. Manly and A.J. Llewellyn have brought us an exciting, dangerous, tension filled story that draws you in and as you progress through the book, you see actions and reactions and wonder if our two hot law enforcement officers will ever get their happy ending. We find out more about Kieran’s father and we also see a hell of a lot of just what Kieran has to go through when he goes undercover, we see Jubilee struggling to accept Kieran’s role and we see both men in their elements as they work their cases. Will Kieran and Jubilee ever find a way to be together or will they continue to torture themselves on the love that slipped away and hope that the pain will ease with time.
This story isn’t one to miss if you love involved cop stories, although the first two books focused on Reggie and his drugs, this one branches out so we see more of what the Marshal’s and the Canadian Narc’s do so we see more cases, and, I can see that there will be a lot of cross over between the American and Canadian law enforcement before Kieran and Jubilee finally get a bliss filled happy ending. We do get the beginning of a happy ending but it gets interrupted in a most shocking fashion, damn and blasts those authors.
So in all honesty if you love crime, hot Marshal’s, sexy detectives, interesting cases, finding and losing love, struggling for understanding, danger and an ending that will leave you muttering about evil authors and their torture methods then this is the book for you.
