Ripped: A Blood Money Novel
This book can be downloaded and read in iBooks on your Mac or iOS device.
Attorney and political heavyweight Tobias Faraday is the Ice King, a man alone in the eye of a deadly storm. And in the wake of his sister's torture, he's out for blood.
The key to Tobias's revenge is the disavowed British spy he's kept imprisoned for weeks. Chandler McCallister can get him behind enemy lines in Russia, but the clever double-agent has a demand of her own before she puts her life on the line in the name of redemption.
Posing as Chandler's boyfriend at an aristocratic wedding in the English countryside won't kill Tobias. Not in theory.
As the threat of Moscow looms larger and the enemy reveals himself to be crueler than any human can imagine, Tobias reluctantly partners with his prisoner to derail the immediate threat—to their families, to Faraday Industries, and to their lives. What he finds in the process is a feverish, relentless need already melting the ice from his veins.
Book two of the Blood Money series
Fight for me
Where to start? There is so much going on in this book! It has characters from the first story in this series as well. Tobias Faraday meets and interrogates Chandler about her work for the Russian Mob. She was a killer among them. His sister was kidnapped by them and tortured and he believes Chandler is one of those responsible.
Tobias aka "Toby" to Chandler is super HOT! She can barely control her tongue when she is around him. Her body wants to do all sorts of naughty things with him, but hey are enemies. That does not stop sparks from flying around every room they are in together. He is known as The Ice King, who never responds to a woman's advance - but she sees in his eyes he is not as indifferent to her as he shows.
Chandler is willing to do whatever it takes to repair her good name and status as an MI-6 agent. Toby gives her a deal that she will take him to Russia and help him infiltrate those who tortured his sister, if she can go to her sister's wedding. Only the wedding is a week long even where they have to pretend to be boyfriend and girlfriend and share a room.
Like I said earlier, so much happens in this book! There is more to this story about who comes to visit during the wedding and what happens in Russia. I do not want to spoil it but it is a great read and well worth the time to find out.
