About the Book:
Her sister might be the law and her brothers the brawn, but Riley Kingston is definitely the brains of the family. She’s a talented botanist well on her way to a PhD—so why does she feel like a failure? Fired from a dream project in Costa Rica, Riley’s stuck back in her hometown. Cataloguing plants on Steele land keeps her busy, but it’s far from compelling work. Until she discovers a fascinating new specimen. One with a body made for pleasure . . . and eyes filled with a pain she longs to understand.
Delta Force operator Coen Monroe doesn’t want to be studied. Not even by the sexy scientist whose inquisitive glances stir up desires he isn’t ready to handle. He came to Steele Ridge to be alone, to battle his nightmares and the memories triggering them. But Riley’s gentle seduction is as relentless as her curiosity. She soothes his wounded soul . . . and fires up his defensive instincts. But once her research sparks a deadly conspiracy, Coen is exactly what she needs.
When Riley is targeted by a sociopath bent on silencing her forever, Coen will do anything to protect her. But can he save the woman he loves without losing himself in the process?

Riley and Coen's story not only sucked me in, but kept me glued to the pages. I finished this story in one sitting because I couldn't bear to put it down and have to wonder what I was missing.
Searing Need had me full of curiosity, needing to know more about Coen, his past, his future, just everything. And I was curious to see how Riley would become involved because from the first moment she sees him in the book, I knew she'd never back off.
I enjoyed the deep connection and chemistry between these two. I loved watching as they worked through their emotional struggles together. This story had just the right amount of suspense and action to keep the story moving at a steady pace while allowing me to see the blooming feelings between them.
