When the woman he loves is taken, Forest “Trees” Scott abandons a mission to save her from the enemy. Fearing the worst, he moves heaven and earth to find her—until he realizes Laila Torres left him of her own free will for the man who used her for six years. He’s stunned and wrecked. She played him—and he fell for it. One thing he’s not doing? Giving up. He’ll find her and he’ll make her pay…in his bed.
Laila is devastated by her tormentor’s return, but when he threatens the bodyguard she’s so foolishly fallen for, she risks everything—including her life—to protect Trees. As a mere pawn in a deadly game played by factions of a cartel, she and Trees have no future unless she can somehow destroy them. But she doesn’t count on Trees hunting her down, stripping her soul bare, and insisting in the sexiest way possible that she belongs to him and always will.
But danger awaits around every corner, and secrets abound. As Trees and Laila fight for their future, their enemies close in. Will they let go of their hurts and trust in their love before it’s too late?

Read Wicked as Seduction, Trees & Layla: Part One
After all that she had been through Laila was beginning to think she could have a different future from the devastating past that she endured until it returns with a vengeance. She believes her only option to protect those she loves is to put herself in danger once again, but Tree wasn’t about to let that happen.
Tree is hurt and angry that Laila believed she couldn’t trust him to protect her and those she loved. Her need to prove her independence causes conflict between them when all he wants is to keep her safe, but it also makes them equals in every way.
Not only are Tree and Laila great characters but it is great to catch up with the other characters we know and love as they take us on an action-packed and romantic adventure.
