DESIRED TO DEATH
Posing as an underage teenager, Samara Lyons is out to trap an online predator. Smart, fiery, and fresh off a broken engagement, Samara is up for the challenge. But this challenge might not be so easy. Her boss, Noah McCall, head of a private international corporation called Last Chance Rescue, can’t disguise his raw, physical desire for Samara–and she’s going crazy battling her own feelings for him. The middle of a high-stakes op, with the fate of dozens of innocent lives on the line, is not the time to indulge in sensual delights. Then the sting explodes, forcing Noah to face his dark past and throwing Samara into the middle of an evil tug-of-war. Noah must confront an enemy he knows better than anyone else in the world, while Samara must find a way to stay alive. Now it’s no longer a matter of desire–it’s all about survival.

Noah is our strong, tortured hero who is filled with guilt & self-condemnation. He is the founder & head of Last Chance Rescue, an organization whose sole purpose is to rescue & save victims. Samara is our smart, feisty heroine who isn’t afraid to fight for what she wants. There’s a very surprising villain. The action is fast and intense, and suspense high which that kept me up reading and if not reading then constantly thinking about the story. This is the 2nd book in the series but can be read as a standalone. But book 1, Rescue Me, is way too good not to read.
Read an excerpt from Return to Me over on Christy’s website:
WHAT PEOPLE ARE SAYING…
“The dramatic adventures continue in the second book of hot new talent Reece’s trilogy. Book two sets its sights on the founder of Last Chance Rescue, Noah McCall. Emotionally damaged by his horrendous upbringing, this hero has his heart locked down, but heroine Samara Lyons is no shrinking violet. Together, these protagonists play with life-and-death stakes, and danger emanates from every page. Take a walk on the perilous side … you won’t be disappointed! ” – Romantic Times Magazine
“Return to Me is the type of book you will pick up and NEVER want to put down again. This is the second novel in this trilogy and Ms. Reece has written an amazing story of love, life, crime, and fighting for what is right. With a hero who is tormented by his past, we get to see how Noah is cold and calculating with the bad guys and soft and gentle with the victims. Samara is a tiny scrap of a girl who is mistaken for fourteen instead of the late twenties she is, and she goes about showing us exactly how tough she really is. Steamy sex scenes, intense fighting scenes, the sensation of struggling to survive, edge-of-your-seat feelings, and finding your true self make this mind-blowing book a must read story and made me a new fan of this remarkable author!” – 5 Cup Review, Coffee Time Romance & More
“The second LCR thriller is an exhilarating romantic suspense starring two kick butt champions in love.” – Harriet Klausner, Merry Genre Go Round Reviews
ABOUT THE AUTHOR
Growing up in a tiny Alabama community boasting only one stop sign and a gas station gave Christy ample opportunity to create daring adventures in her head. When she wasn’t thinking of her story characters, Nancy Drew and the Hardy Boys kept her entertained and out of trouble. Later came the chills of Stephen King and the thrills of John Grisham, but the romance genre always held a strong place in her heart.
When she’s not writing or spending time with her wonderful family, she still loves to read. A suspenseful story full of drama, angst, suspense, mystery, and romance is still her favorite. Throw in a happy ever after and she is one happy camper.
Christy lives in Alabama with her husband and a menagerie of fur-kids.
