5.0 out of 5 stars Clever, hot and perceptive 18 Aug 2003
Format:Paperback
A good combination of thriller and very erotic romance. There’s a lot of sex in this book, so if you object to such, then this is not a tale for you. However sex is used here as much to show how the two central characters change in the course of events, from power plays to tenderness, touching on punishment and eventually even forgiveness. In this, as well as the quality of writing, McKenna makes this about more than sex, and brings in something of the human condition, as well as drawing in other themes and subtexts of the novel. Thus, although plentiful, the erotic nature of the book actually adds meaning to the relationship and thus integrates into the story as a whole.
As for the thriller side, there is certainly no ‘mystery’ here – we know whodunnit and why the various characters are taking the actions that they are. The two central characters are Raine Cameron, who has recently begun working for identified baddie Victor Lazar, and Seth Mackey, whose brother had been killed 10 months prior to the opening of the book. All that drives Seth now is the need for vengeance. He likens himself to a cyborg – focused, emotionless and with a single purpose. To this end he has extensively bugged the house of Lazar’s mistress (Lazar being involved in his brothers death), which is now Raine’s house. Raine is actually related to Lazar, and blames him (rightly) for the death of her father. She has been on the run from Lazar for 13 years, and considers herself to be a bit of a coward – the shy, retiring, unnoticeable type. Now convinced that she needs to find out more of her fathers death, she has ‘infiltrated’ Lazars firm, supposedly anonymously – almost a joke as Lazar knows exactly who she is.

5.0 out of 5 stars wow, what a fast pacing erotic read!, 20 Aug 2004
Format:Paperback
This is my first book from this author and then I immediately read the following ones. Even though Shannon Mckenna repeats herself in other series, she is a bright star in this genre. I liked the fast pacing storyline very much. If you dont like too controlling male characters you probably wont like it. On the other hand, I must say that it was an amazing read. I could not put it down, a real page turner. Great for lazy days, particularly perfect for the beach.
Behind Closed Doors has a good storyline and sizzling scenes. I recommend this book if you want to read suspense, love and some sex. I was entertained with Behind Closed Doors. Also recommended: 'Standing In The Shadows' by Shannon McKenna.

Format:Mass Market Paperback
When a man bent on revenge encounters a woman that is good and kind their fate gets intertwined. But will the scintillating passion be enough to overcome all the obstacles when truth wants to find a way to be revealed? It is a battle of character and courage as the enemy reaches out with his clutches and wants to ruin everything in its path...

Shannon McKenna has left me all hot and bothered and clamoring for more after reading my first encounter with her work, BEHIND CLOSED DOORS. In no way could anything prepare me for the sizzling emotional rollercoaster ride and throughout the book I wondered: `Can a crude, bold, brass male character whom refuses to leash his tongue, in more ways than one, claim me in such a demanding way?' Well, as I closed this book I can fully convinced say, YES! Seth appeared in the story and immediately sucker punched me with his straight forward behavior and wasn't ashamed of it either.

With Seth's very intricate nature Shannon McKenna gives this novel a man that will get all your senses flaring to life. But he will also rub you the wrong way at times, even have full-fleshed, pissed off moments at what he has done as he all did it with me. Nevertheless, it is only the stunning way this author tells his story and discloses his background that allows Seth to just be the man he is at heart and no apologies being made for it that is such a part of his appeal. If you think that this novel is all about Seth think again for he will make quite an impression but without a worthy female adversary this story would have lost a lot of its high voltage vibe!

5.0 out of 5 stars So Hot I Nearly Burnt My Fingers! 27 Jun 2007
By Betsy
Format:Mass Market Paperback
This is the first book I read by Shannon McKenna and, well...wow! I have to admit when I bought the book I had only read the synopsis on a website, I was not prepared for the blantent sexuality which is present troughout all her books. Raine is trying to get closer to her employer to find the truth behind the death of her father, leading her straight into the arms of Seth, a ruthless security expert who has been watching Raine for some time. Both trying to get closer to Victor the pair start a brutal affair which gets hearts pounding faster and faster. Shannon writes scenes which fit the context of her stories, though it is sometimes hard to understand why her heroines would fall for the heros when they display such violent possesive behaviour and go out of there way to make there bed partner surrender. There are no flowery edges to the love scenes in her books but that is exactly what we need these days. Have we not had enough of the 'love making' in the majority if romance books and the frankly amusing euphemisms for parts of the body! Don't misunderstand, I, like many other women enjoy the likes of Nora Roberts and her comtempories, but it is a refreshing to read a sexually candid book which targets what women secretly desire, becuase as much as our brain cannot understand any woman wanting to be overpowered, deep down this is exactly what we want to read about. I would recomend all of Shannon's books, bit they should carry a warning, not for the faint hearted.
