A pretty good romantic suspense. I really liked the characters and the way they play the hand that was dealt to them. I could have used a bit more on the "bad guy", as in it wasn't developed enough for me, but otherwise, a great balance between story and romance. Time for the next one!

I loved this book, and cannot wait for "Willing" and "Able", the other 2 books in this trilogy.

Joshua "Wolf" Watt has come to Seattle to bring her home for Thanksgiving. His sister is married to Lise's brother, and so he knows how much family means to Lise. Because of a passionate kiss they shared, he's convinced she ran to escape their intense attraction, and is determined to set her straight. But when he finds her afraid in her own home, his instincts tell him something else is going on, and he's not about to let anything happen to her.

Lise is wary when she first sees Joshua in her apartment. She remembers how it felt to be in his arms, how strong her reaction is to him, and it scares her. She doesn't want to lose herself to another person and she's certain that's exactly what would happen with Joshua. But she also needs help, and as a trained soldier, Joshua can protect her, along with his trusted friends Hotwire and Nitro. But will her be able to protect her from her own feelings?

Ready is a combustible mix of suspense, danger, and sexual tension that will leave you breathless. Lise is a woman who loves what she does, and cherishes the solitude it brings to her world. While she seemed shy and reserved, she houses a wealth of strength and passion that has yet to be tested. Joshua is just the man to test those qualities. Living his own solitary world, he has seen and done things no one should ever have to experience, and can't believe love exists for someone like him. But he can't ignore the feelings Lise brings out in him, and uses their forced seclusion to explore those feelings. However when this assignment is over, will he be able to let her go?
