Liza Wright is always handled with kid gloves because she’s a Major General’s daughter, living in a small town. Most people only see her as a pampered princess. Very few people had taken the time to dig deeper and discover that she was so much more than that. Liza wants change, but she wasn’t expecting it to come in the form of an officer who got under her skin.

Thor Zeller knew the blonde with the killer legs was trouble the moment he saw her. Everything about her screamed trouble but Thor couldn’t resist the pull he felt toward Liza. A night out on the town turns into an unexpected session of hot sex for Thor and Liza. Unfortunately, Thor puts his foot in his mouth and things become tense between them.

After a near fatal accident, Liza nurses Thor back to health. During this time, he realizes his initial impression of her was all wrong. Thor decides to come clean about his feelings for Liza, but Liza is kidnapped before he can settle things with her. Now he has to put his emotions aside and bring her home safely.

Sparks definitely flew when Thor and Liza meet. Even though they both got the wrong impression about the other, neither of them could fight the searing attraction they felt. Liza thought Thor was too uptight and Thor assumed that she was spoiled and shallow. Man, they couldn’t have been more wrong! Liza had too much compassion and ambition for life in Claremont. Thor came into her life at the perfect time, for which I was very thankful. It would have been such a shame to see her settle for “boring” when she had so much to offer. Thor wasn’t as straight-laced and unaffected by Liza’s charms as he appeared. Once Thor learned how Liza had saved him during his accident, I began doing a happy dance. I never gave up hope for a touching and action packed ending and Yvette Hines definitely kept hope alive. Heated Restraints is a wonderful beginning to the Apprehension series and I know readers will anticipate the next glimpse into the town of Claremont, just as I am.
