At an early age, Steve Ewing had been taught that reputation was everything. He rarely had an opportunity to be anything other than the conservative banker in the small town of Claremont. When Steve is offered his own personal fireworks show from a hot little number, he jumps at the chance to walk on the wild side. The heated encounter makes Steve realize that the woman in his arms is his perfect match sexually. After slipping away in the dark, Steve realizes that he’d tasted heaven with the wrong woman.

Mandy Franklin knew men didn’t view her as a sensual creature. The men in town seemed to be more impressed by her basketball and cop skills than her feminine wiles. Never in a million years would Mandy have guessed that sweet and sexy Steve could show her such pleasure. Why would he pick someone as ordinary as her, when he could have any woman in town?

After having a taste of each other, Steve and Mandy realize they want to take things to the next level. The bedroom knows no limits, as far as the couple is concerned. But real life and family interference places seeds of doubt in Steve’s mind. Mandy quickly reminds Steve that he knew what he was getting into from day one.

Steve shocked me with his concerns about Mandy and for a moment, I was very disappointed in him. Although his honesty certainly deserved some respect. At this moment, I realized the depth of his feelings. In the bedroom, Steve might have dominated Mandy, but it was refreshing to see her stand up for herself and not apologize for who she was. She was a good cop, and I enjoyed seeing her in action. The unexpected element of danger always seems to put life into perspective and it definitely did with these two. Seeing them realize what was really important made my heart soar. There is one happy surprise in particular that I thought was the perfect cherry on top for this happily ever after story. Prisoner of Desire is the third book of the Apprehension series, but I hope not the last. Claremont County seems to be filled with good, down-to-Earth characters that have more layers than an onion and I look forward to getting to the core of each and every one of them.
