Lori Foster's latest book, CAUGHT IN THE ACT has readers buzzing. The much anticipated story of a character first introduced in a Special Release she shares with Jayne Ann Krentz, has readers hungry to get their hands on Mick Dawson's story. The fact that this is a longer novel (at nearly 300 pages), had this reader anxious to sit back and enjoy a little more time spent with these characters. We were first introduced to Mick in Beguiled as the heroine's landlord's son; then a gangly, reserved teen. A young man dealing with adult issues in a turbulent household. He helped the heroine, Angel, until her hero, Dane came along, but Ms. Foster knew that readers would want a success story for a young man mature beyond his years. Now Mick's all grown up. He's still reserved, and reluctant to trust others, but being a cop has much to do with his continued hesitance. That all changes the moment he spots Delilah Piper ambling past him on the street one afternoon. Mick is fascinated by her. He watches her. Even traces the route she jogs each day, which happens to be right past a restaurant that he and his two friends frequent. He sees her enter a jewelry store across the street from the eatery one rainy day, and decides it's his chance to make her acquaintance. Little did he know that he'd be caught in the middle of an armed robbery moments after entering the establishment! Mick becomes her hero, but his police instincts are on full alert when things don't add up, and it seems the object of his desire may have been targeted for murder. Could she be involved in some way? He wonders this even as he step in the line of fire and takes a bullet on her behalf. The attraction is mutual and intense for both "Del" and Mick. He knows he needs to protect her, since the assailants are still at large, but his personal feelings play a huge part in his decision to stay at her house while he recuperates from his injury. Her profession as a mystery novelist, and her unorthodox ways of writing her crime scenes give him pause; both for how she makes them realistic, but also for her safety while doing it, and the people she associates with while researching her books. Can Mick put his growing passion for this woman aside and do his duty as a cop if he finds she is involved with the jewelry store robbery? Or will his feelings take over his common sense, and ignore clues that will help him solve the crime? Ms. Foster has scored once again with her sexy characters and staunch loyalty of friends and family. Readers asked for more, and she answered the call with Caught In The Act. Mick's emotional scars will tug at your heartstrings, and the obvious single status of his friends, Zack and Josh, will have you clamoring for them to find a love for each, their own. A wonderful story of inner conflict and strength; this is a journey of a man who begins with a heart locked away because of his hurtful past, but opens it for a future with a woman who, with her love, has the power to heal it. Congratulations to Ms. Foster! A powerful in depth tale of love, heartache, trust, and truth. Caught In The Act has it all!
