Lana Parker is a strong-willed, red- headed, feisty private investigator with a stubborn streak and mouth that gets her in trouble from time to time. When her client, Angel, wife of the leader of Hades biker club, wants out of the biker life, she willingly accepts to investigate her husband. While undercover and trying to get the goods on Rex at the adult club, Carpe Noctem, she ends up on the receiving end of his unwanted attention. As she tries to get the situation under control, a blast from her comes to her rescue. James Hunter, an undercover cop that she was hot and heavy with two years prior. He is now going by the name “Ice” and is part of the Hades biker club.
To protect Lana from Rex’s attempts and keep his cover intact, James tells Hades that Lana is his “old lady”, Roxie. Lana realizes that James a.k.a. “Ice” is undercover in the Hades gang. While he tries to protect her from Rex, tempers flare and sparks fly between them. He makes a deal to give her one chance to get her pictures she needs as long as she does it his way. The problem is, Lana is still hurt from James (Heartless Bastard) leaving her without an explanation two years ago and she is running from a secretive past – this equals stubborn Lana.
Through the twists and turns of the story, can Lana forgive the Heartless Bastard for leaving her two years ago without a goodbye? Can she out run her haunting past with all the memories resurfacing? Can James get over his commitment issues and have a relationship with the one woman who he may be able to have it all with? What will happen when her past collides with their present, will she run, will he chase her?
This book was hot; the chemistry between Lana and James was great and the supporting characters were just as amazing as the main characters. This is book two of the Legal Heat Series, but can be read as a standalone.
**The book contains violence, explicit sex, light BDSM, heavy swearing.
