Forged in Desire by Brenda Jackson Publication Date: January 31st, 2017 Publisher: HQN Books Genre: Contemporary Romance

Strong enough to protect her. Bold enough to love her.
When good girl Margo Connelly becomes Lamar "Striker" Jennings's latest assignment, she knows she's in trouble. And not just because he's been hired to protect her from an underworld criminal. The reformed bad boy's appeal is breaching all her defenses, and as the threats against her increase, Margo isn't sure which is more dangerous: the gangster targeting her, or the far too alluring protector tempting her to let loose.
Though Striker's now living on the right side of the law, he's convinced his troubled past keeps Margo out of his league. But physical chemistry explodes into full-blown passion when they go on the run together. Surrendering to desire could be a deadly distraction—or finally prove that he's the only man qualified to keep her safe, and win her love.

Add to GoodReads:



Margo Connelly only did her civic duty to serve on a jury, now along with many others she is on a hit list.  An evil villain decided they must all die.  
Lamar Striker Jennings is given the job of protecting the niece of his boss.  The rest of the team will back him up.  
Like anyone who has their life disrupted our heroine is not happy.  Handing control over to someone else is not easy.  
Our hero is determined to protect her whether she likes it or not,  and it will be done his way.  
A real nail biter.  The assassin is ruthless and exceptionally good,  especially because he has inside knowledge.  
Lots of very sexy scenes that nearly melted my kindle,a marvellous story line and lots if danger.  
This is the start of a new series and I definitely want to read them all.  A very exciting read, I loved it.
