Review by Tiger Lily

John Vincent has always led a life of danger, and now he has every reason to want to remain as dead as the obituary in the Australian papers had proclaimed him to be. He’d left nothing behind in the life he had once led—except for one woman, and one night of unforgettable passion. Now, both will return to haunt him…

Bailey Serborne is still tormented by a past she can’t change and a man she hasn’t been able to forget. A man who was supposed to dead.. But now, a stroke of fate has revealed that sometimes, a woman is given a second chance to heal her heart—and exact the sweetest revenge…

Some men are born to lead. Other men are born to love. While others are born to die and come back again. Heat Seeker is one of those men who gets a second chance, not only with his life, but with his love.

First, I have to admit, I love Lora Leigh’s work. I find it easy to get lost in the pages of one of her stories and find myself three hours later needing a cold shower. Heat Seeker is not exception to this rule. Lora Leigh writes white hot passion that you can’t walk away from.

Once again, you are drawn into the world of the Elite Ops. This time we meet Bailey and John (formerly known as Trent). One night of passion five years earlier isn’t enough to curb their love for each other. When they reconnect, it’s blazing passion. Sound familiar? Perhaps, but this is their story.

I like that Bailey is strong willed. She knows what she wants and isn’t afraid to go get it—be it the person who killed her folks or John. But what made me respect her wasn’t her tough façade, but her willingness to ask for help.

John comes across as a quandary. He was once Trent, the fun-loving SEAL. Now, he’s John, the emotionally wounded, ex-serviceman. I like that he’s the strong, silent type until he’s in bed—then the tiger is unleashed.

Although there are a few editing issues, one character changes names, and some minor typographical errors, I didn’t find them enough to deter me from reading and loving the characters. No, this isn’t up to Lora Leigh’s personal best, but it’s still a great story.

If you want a novel that will leave you hot, breathless, and wanting more, then you need to read Heat Seeker. I give this novel 4 cherries.
