All his siblings have moved on from their troubling pasts, but Rusty McClane can’t leave his behind. Not even when his freedom is in jeopardy.

Legal investigator Harper Blake can sense a bad boy. She’s drawn to them—like she is to her mysterious and brooding new client. The police believe that Rusty is involved with the case of a missing underage girl. Harper’s job is to find evidence to defend him. But is her sexy suspect a predator…or something else?

If Rusty is guilty of anything, it’s of stirring something primitive in Harper. The closer they get, the harder it is to believe the worst of him.

But in an underworld filled with sex trafficking, kidnapping, and murder, Harper will need to be cautious about whom she trusts. Because Rusty isn’t the only one with secrets.

 

A mystery that turns into more than they ever bargained for! With the next book in the Deadly Secrets series, we get the story of another of the McClane siblings. Rusty is the quiet one. Always there when his siblings need him, but keeps to himself a lot. Never one to light up the room with a smile, he adores his family, but he’s still eaten away by the past and things he could have done differently. Now he’s in the crosshairs of some powerful people who want to bring him down … whether he’s guilty or not! I wasn’t drawn in as deeply with this book as I was with ones previously in the series, but it was still a very entertaining read filled with intrigue, drama and romance.

Rusty McClane lucked into joining a wonderful family when his world fell apart all those years ago, but as much as he’s tried, he can’t move past the trauma he experienced as a child. The guilt eats him up inside as he lies on a regular basis to his family about what he does when he’s not with them. His secrets might not be so secret anymore when the cops show up at his parents door!

Investigator Harper Blake isn’t sure what to make of Rusty when she’s called in on his defense. She’s attracted to him almost immediately and she’s usually a magnet for a major bad boy, but she senses there’s something going on with him that isn’t exactly showing on the surface. Is he involved in why this underage girl is all of a sudden missing, or is there more to his story?
