But he never expects to share an irresistible chemistry with his beautiful new client.
Fame claimed Shealyn West suddenly and with a vengeance after starring in a steamy television drama, but it has come at the expense of her heart. Though she's pretending to date a co-star for her image, a past mistake has come back to haunt her. With a blackmailer watching her every move and the threat of career-ending exposure looming, Shealyn hires Cutter to shore up her security, never imagining their attraction will be too powerful to contain.
As Shealyn and Cutter navigate the scintillating line between business and pleasure, they unravel a web of secrets that threaten their relationship and their lives. When danger strikes, Cutter must decide whether to follow his heart for the first time, or risk losing Shealyn forever.

Devoted to Pleasure is a scintillating new installment in the Devoted Lovers series, and it's centered around a armed and able bodied hunk who is hired to protect a beautiful actress who has managed to catch the attention of a very eager and dangerous blackmailer. From the moment these two wandered into each other lives you could feel the sparks flying off the pages, and it was obvious those sparks were going to lead to something really hot at some point... and boy did it ever!! I thoroughly enjoyed this one it had suspenseful action to keep me guessing, some pesky rules that kept me on the edge of my seat wondering will they or won't they, and an emotional story line that spoke to my heart...a total win in my book!! Highly recommend!!
I requested an advanced copy of this title, and I am voluntarily leaving my honest opinion.
