“You’re coming with me.”
 
When Killian Brody showed up at Dallas Faircloth’s work with news that her half-brother might die without her help, she never expected the oldest and sexiest Brody to freaking kidnap her to ensure her cooperation. 
The scandalous affair between Dallas’s mother and Killian’s father made everything inside Dallas revolt at the Brody name. It was because of a Brody that her life had been left in ruins at the age of eight, and she’d had to rebuild all on her own. She hated the Brodys. Which was too bad, really. Killian Brody was take-charge, arrogant and so damn sexy she would have climbed him like a tree if it weren’t for that last name of his.
 
Her weak-willed mother had proven to her that the men in the Brody family were as addictive as any drug, and Dallas didn’t want to get hooked. But when Killian turns his sights on her and makes her believe she’s his greatest weakness, she has a choice—play it safe, or dive in headfirst and risk falling in love with a Brody man.

Amazon Review – “Another piece of gold”
 
Amazon Review “Another winner”
 
Amazon Review “A heroine with a backbone and a Hero who morphs into a man worthy of the title!”
  
A competitive figure skater from the age of eight, Stacy Gail wrote stories between events to pass the time. By fourteen, she told her parents she was either going to be a skating coach who was also a romance writer, or a romance writer who was also a skating pro. Now with a day job of playing on the ice with her students, and writing everything from PNR and cyberpunk to contemporary romance at night, both dreams have come true.

Killian’s father and Dallas’s mother had an affair that not only affected Des, the child they conceived, but destroyed the two families as well. Killian is a man on a mission and that mission is saving his half brother even if that means reconnecting with the family he never wanted to see again and kidnapping the one person who can help.

Dallas was devastated when the actions of her mother took away her brother and she would do anything for him.
She didn’t need to be forced to help and the fact that Killian thought she needed to only increased the tension between them. They are both damaged by the past and it is only when they get to know each other for who they are rather that who they think the other is that they can truly heal.

I enjoyed both these characters as Killian wants to protect those he loves despite the personal consequences and Dallas is his perfect match as her feisty independent personality isn’t afraid to stand up to Killian.
