Kate is protecting Josh since there is a price on his head after he and his partner destroyed an evil grimoire.  This is the first time she has ever been tempted to break her rules because Josh is so appealing.

The ninth book in the Urban Seductions series, Strategic Lust, picks up where Strategic Surrender left off.  Josh and Kate are trying to help find who put the price on their heads and discover why there are actually two different factions after them, as they try to figure things out.

Kate and Josh have chemistry and Kate tries hard to stay focused on protecting him.  Several things happen that cause Kate and Josh to discuss their jobs and why things have be a certain way, which lead to declarations of love on both their part.

Several secondary characters from previous books show up to try to help with a situation, which hopefully will resolve the issue regarding the contract.  I was surprised at the resolution of one situation, as I did not see that particular thing happening, though after thinking about it, it is understandable.  A character that hasn’t shown up in the last few books, was mentioned, so there is a possibility that he might have his own story in the future.  I sure hope so. 

The series has so many twists and turns among the human, witch and wizard populations and what can happen when magic is involved.  Once a thread seems to be resolved, another pops up that is even more twisted than the last one.  This series needs to be read in order to get the most out of it.  I’m looking forward to the next book.
