Review: Rules of Engagement (The Duquesnes #1.5) by Ann Bruce


After being shot three times in the chest and left for dead by his last lover, Jake Duquesne decides the middle of nowhere is a good place to recuperate. And it's perfect, until someone tries to sneak up on him, gun drawn and cocked. Unfortunately for his would-be assailant, Jake is not one to wait around quietly while someone tries to kill him.
Waking up handcuffed to a strange bed is not part of Katarzyna Delaney's plans after being jilted at the altar for the third time. Looking at Jake, however, makes her realize plans should be flexible. With a few simple rules, she can have her long-awaited honeymoon--and without a battery-operated device.
Then people following no rules but their own join in.

My Review:

After being jilted at the altar, Kat looks for a place to crash and collect herself. A friend offers her log cabin in the middle of nowhere and Kat readily accepts. Too bad her friend’s bother, Jake, is also using the cabin for some away time as well.

Jake, a mercenary-type, is hiding from some bad guys and mistakes Kat for an intruder. They both exchange names and sort out the confusion in bed with handcuffs. Kat, who’s a cop, can’t believe Jake subdued her so easily, but being interrogated in handcuffs with Jake above her in the bedroom sets her blood boiling hott!

While they promise to stay out of each other’s way in the cabin, their agreement doesn’t last and it’s not long before these two get down hottt and heavy *fans self*

But just as Jake and Kat enjoy their paradise in the woods, Jake’s past rears it’s ugly head. Will they survive against the bad guys after Jake’s head?
