After a messy breakup with a lying ex, English teacher Mercy Jones swore off men, especially the edgy ones. Safe, stable and comfy. Those are her catch words for a perfect partner. So why does the new substitute history teacher have to be dangerous, raw, and challenging—on every level? His uncompromising masculinity and questioning mind captivate Mercy, tempting her to risk her heart.
Detective Aidan Shaw is a cynical bastard, trusting nobody outside his family and fellow cops. But when working undercover to eradicate a high school drug network, Aidan meets an intelligent, feisty blonde with knock-out curves. Mercy’s warmth and generous spirit awaken a part of him buried deep for too long.
But how can Aiden remain undercover and not betray the woman he’s come to cherish? As he closes in on the criminals manipulating innocents for profit, the stakes grow ever higher—with deadly consequences.
**This was initially a 29,000 novella for a boxed set. (Of which all proceeds went to charity.) The updated version is expanded with new scenes.
Another great read from this author
I love this author's work. She was new to me not long ago, but once I discovered her, I had to read everything she had written. This book follows Mercy Jones and Aiden Shaw, who you meet in book 2 of the Sons of Sydney series.
The story has a bit of everything needed to keep you hooked from start to finish. Looking forward to more of her books
Review 4.5 Stars
In his Custody is a quick fast paced read, I was hooked from the first page.
Aiden Shaw is a cop who goes undercover as a history/sports teacher, his job is get to the bottom of a drug problem , it wasn't his job to fall for the sassy English teacher Mercy Jones.
Mercy Jones is a woman getting over a messy breakup, she wasn't meant to fall for the sexy new teacher. Will Mercy be able to get past the lies Aiden had to tell just to do his job ......
This book has enough going on to keep you turning the pages, twists and turns, some seriously hot scenes in which we found out Aiden has many uses for his handcuffs but its also a love story with characters that have sizzling chemistry. I loved Aiden and Mercy and I really enjoyed catching up with some of the gang from Sons of Sydney, I will say you don't need to have read Sons of Sydney to enjoy In His Custody but I'm sure after meeting the gang you will want to add that series to your TBR. This quick read is a great start to a new series from the very talented Fiona Archer, Looking forward to more from the Shaw brothers.
This is my first book I've read of this author and it had me from start to finish. Now to go read the rest of Fiona's books. Thanks.
