A disturbed criminal wants to destroy her life.

After her colleague’s brutal murder, Dr. Waylynn Hargraves’s past makes her a suspect, but Blackhawk Security investigator Elliot Dunham is certain she’s innocent. When Waylynn’s research reveals she faces a danger worse than being framed, Elliot will defy all of the rules he’s set for himself in order to protect Waylynn from the killer who is stalking her.


Intense action from the start! With the fourth book in her Blackhawk Security series, Nichole Severn brings us RULES IN DEFIANCE which turns a friends to lovers trope into a daring race against time as danger lurks all around them. The characters are attention grabbing and the intrigue is top notch. Really enjoyed!

Elliot Dunham portrays his protective streak right from the first page when he jumps to attention when he hears Waylynn in distress. He’s lived a life of danger and deceit, but it doesn’t take a reader long to feel an affinity to the soul beneath the mask.

Waylynn has a secret past behind her that only makes her look guiltier when it comes to light … and that same past makes her believe she doesn’t deserve the goodness that Elliot could offer her. She’s determined to make a difference … and she’ll stop at nothing to make sure she can.

I highly recommend this book to anyone looking for a fast paced, highly intense book filled with great characters, bewitching intrigue and that sought after happily ever after!
