Spencer King’s next mission involves going undercover in a strip bar to try and learn the identity of a DEA rogue who is passing on information to a Colombian drug cartel. Spencer doesn’t have a problem with the mission, but he’s rather unimpressed with the agent picked to play the stripper. Shadoe Grayson may have a photographic memory that will come in handy when it comes to recognizing faces, but she’s so straight laced, there’s no way in hell she’ll be mistaken for a stripper.
Shadoe doesn’t like Spencer’s opinion of her from the moment they meet. She’s determined to do this mission, so that means she’s going to have to prove Spencer wrong. With a few lessons she not only proves him wrong, but knocks him for a loop. Gone is the buttoned up agent and in her place is a sexy woman with some killer moves.
Returning to his childhood home of New Orleans, Spencer is reminded of the past and can’t believe it when he finds himself confiding in Shadoe. While they had very different back grounds, they both had a very lonely childhood in common. Spencer has always been a loner, and his feelings for Shadoe leave him very confused.
When things heat up between them, both Spencer and Shadoe have to remember they are there for a reason, and not let their feelings interfere with their mission. And when the bad guys make a move, Spencer has to learn he can trust Shadoe to do her job. But that doesn’t mean he has to like it.
This third book in the Wild Rider series brings us familiar characters as well as a fresh new face. Its great fun to see womanizer Spencer King find himself drawn to one particular woman, and his confusion over what his heart is feeling. Shadoe is a fantastic heroine with determination and intelligence, without being too strong. The sex scenes are steamy and frequent, and made all the better because of the emotion involved. Cheers for Burton’s sexy Wild Riders!
