His traumatic past has left him dark… and longing for love.
Hicks thinks good and evil comes in black and white. No blurred lines, no grey areas. After being subjected to a horrific experiment that’s left him damaged as a super soldier, Hicks seeks comfort from his torment in reliability. He’s got clear rules on morality and isn’t willing to break them.
Whitney is a seductress. Secretly working for a Senator as a mistress, she puts on leather outfits and a mask of sensuality to bend men to her will— though the money she makes doing so isn’t to save her, but others. Whitney believes she’s past saving, and that love is a silly dream.
Then he enters her life.
Hicks is sickened by what he thinks Whitney is— and undeniably attracted to her. After Whitney’s life is threatened in a violent murder attempt, Hicks calls in his team. Whitney is the target of a government operation, and unless Hicks can discover who’s behind it, Whitney’s life is forfeit.
But the mission isn’t the only thing on Hicks’ mind.
Whitney and Hicks can’t keep their hands off each other… but they can’t stand each other, either. Whitney isn’t the innocent woman Hicks thought, and Hicks isn’t the strong hero Whitney’s looking for. But together, the heat of their romance and the passion of their love cannot be stopped.
Can Hicks rescue Whitney from a tragic end? Or will the lovers lose everything against incredible odds?
Equal parts sexy and suspenseful, Mayhem’s Desire is the second installment in an action-packed love story women of all ages will enjoy. Award winning author Lindsay Cross brings readers a hot romp of military men and strong heroines in Operation Mayhem, a romance saga of cinematic proportions.
This series was new to me, along with Lindsay Cross. Mayhem’s Desire is action packed and suspenseful. I was left guessing as to what was going to happen next and trying to figure out who was responsible for each horrific thing that happened.
Hicks has been part of Operation Mayhem. Something that was supposed to be helpful and insightful but instead it is ugly and life altering. He’s loyal to the bone and has a very strong stance on what he think is wrong and right. Itching to feel useful, he goes out to help the Doctor’s sister, who called in for help. Little did he know what he was getting himself into.
Whitney has a heart of gold and wants nothing but to help others. For over a year now, she’s been acting as a mistress to a powerful Senator as a plan to save up money to help others. But the tables have turned and now someone is after her. When Hicks shows up to save the day, sparks instantly fly. But he discovers something about her and his mind immediately try to write her off. He’s brain is telling him to back away. His heart is screaming something else.
Whitney and Hicks work together to try to figure out who is after her and why. Not only are they battling someone evil, they are battling their feelings for each other. No matter how hard they fight it, they were meant for each other and eventually they have to figure that out.
I’ve enjoyed this series and look forward to the next book. Cross left us with so many questions and one heck of a tease for what could be coming next. If you are looking for action, suspense and of course true/insta love, then this is the series for you!
