Connor Stone has always been odd man out in his family.

Con knows now the only way to redeem himself is with deeds, not words and sets out to prove once and for all he is worthy of the Stone family. When his older brother asks him to take care of business, Con finally will have redemption he craves. Except when Ava Sanchez, his brother's assistant, is threatened, he must choose between saving the girl or protecting his family. Will his choice bring him love or break his heart?

On the run, in the midst of danger, the blistering passion they share explodes. Can these two opposites find common ground, or will Di smash Riley's stone heart?

Lisa Hughey has been writing romance since the fourth grade, which was also about the time she began her love affair with spies. Harriet and Nancy Drew and the Hardy Boys later gave way to James Bond and Lara Croft and Jason Bourne. Exploring the complex nature of a profession that requires subterfuge and lies fascinates her. She loves combining her two passions into fiction. As evidenced by her Black Cipher Files series.
Archangel Rafe was her first foray into the paranormal but after spending time in the Angelic Realm, it won't be her last. At their heart, the Seven novels are about the dynamics of family relationships. But the really hot Archangels don't hurt.
And recently she's been immersed in the Stone Family novellas, four stories about a blended family of brothers and sister who have a lot more in common than they realize. But of course she couldn't just write about family and romance. There are complex plots, bad guys, and suspense too.
Lisa loves to hear from readers and has various places you can connect with her, although, shh, Twitter is her favorite.

My main criticism for this book is that it was too short and finished too abruptly. Otherwise a great read if you ignore the pages of descriptive sexual content (I really wish authors would stop doing that - who, really, wants all the nitty gritty bedroom senes in romantic fiction? Just a snippet is enough to fire up the imagination and cause romantic sighs.) Jess is a feisty heroine with scruples and Colin fiercly attracted to her even though her brother has said hands off. Their mission doesn't go quite to plan and two weeks afterwards Jack (her brother) receives an explicit photograph and blows his stack. Like all good romantic fiction there is a happy ending but it is rather unsatisfying - somehow lacking in the feel good factor. This would have made an extremely good novel if there wasn't a rather rushed feel to everything but it was well worth a read.
loved the characters in this book particularly Jess. Good to see a strong woman and not because she's had to fight to get there.. Jess is just strong. Colin was pretty hot and the other characters intrigued me enough to want to read the next book
This will be another author I will read more from. Good plot to the story with plenty of suspense, with the added benefit of a passionate relationship developing between the characters that as that will they wont they dilemma (they do)
Short story is actually 86% of book. Enjoyed this though the "execution" of parts was rushed especially ending. Some typos. Jess is strong and I liked colin. Just something lacking hence why not 4*. Pleasant just not special or great.
Jess works for her brothers company and he is finally giving her a shot to prove herself and when she sees colin she knows something is off with why her brother sent her on this mission and she and colin cant keep their hands off eachother. this is a good read for such a short story i wish it had been longer because the author doesnt go into too much detail with some of the action but as the couple knew eachother intimately before this mission it doesnt take too long for them to get intimate again. The romance is between jess and colin is hot and sweet and the story as a whole is very descriptive. the characters are great and fully formed and i cant wait to read the next in the series
The dynamics if this family is quite intriguing with a military background and shady goings on they trying to run humanitarian aid and jess is trying to prove herself and make done hard choices. These decisions are not made easier being thrown with her hot sultry one night stand from six months precious who she is denying with every moment that she feels anything. Hot hot hot steamy scenes that def the temperature rising . Absolutely love this writer.
