In the thrilling fourth installment of the Steele Ridge: The Blackwells romantic suspense series, an ambitious attorney and a cunning recovery agent join forces to expose a dangerous web of corruption and deceit, risking everything for justice and love.

Hotshot defense attorney Priscilla Randolph has a reputation for winning the toughest of cases. When she stumbles upon a disturbing toxicology report for land her father's company intends to buy, she realizes her latest challenge might be her most personal. Confused by her father’s indifference to the report, Cilla is determined to uncover the truth.

And she knows just the man to help her.

Enter Cruz Blackwell, a hunky recovery agent adept at finding the unfindable. Ever since his chance meeting with the sexy-as-hell lawyer, he’s wanted to know her better. A whole lot better. When she enlists his help for a simple research assignment, he accepts—gladly—not realizing the storm he’s about to fly into.

Sparks ignite between Cilla and Cruz as they dig deeper, discovering a dangerous web of corruption and deceit. Someone will stop at nothing to prevent them from exposing the truth. Their fight for justice—and love—might cost them everything. Including their lives.


It’s a toss up on which is more riveting, the non-stop intrigue or the pulse-pounding sexual tension! The fourth book in the Steele Ridge: The Blackwells series is fast paced and exciting and centers around Cruz Blackwell and hotshot defense attorney Cilla Randolph. The characters were quick to catch my attention and keep me hooked throughout and the mystery and danger swirling around kept it exciting.

Cruz is addictively sensual! He’s tight with his family but suddenly feeling on the outskirts but his instant attraction to Priscilla has him setting his sights on more before he knows it. He’s a fun character for sure.

Cilla is accomplished and direct and I loved that she wasn’t afraid to go head to head with her father and his flunkies to get answers she needed to help the town folk.

I highly recommend this book as well as the entire series to anyone that enjoys action and suspense as well as a close knit buttinsky family always good for some drama and romance.
