Searing Need

Book 3, Steele Ridge: The Kingstons

This book can be downloaded and read in Apple Books on your Mac or iOS device.


To escape a brutal killer, a brilliant researcher teams up with a tortured soldier who poses an even greater threat... to her heart.

Her sister might be the law and her brothers the brawn, but Riley Kingston is definitely the brains of the family. She’s a talented botanist well on her way to a PhD—so why does she feel like a failure? Fired from a dream project in Costa Rica, Riley’s stuck back in her hometown. Cataloguing plants on Steele land keeps her busy, but it’s far from compelling work. Until she discovers a fascinating new specimen. One with a body made for pleasure . . . and eyes filled with a pain she longs to understand.

Delta Force operator Coen Monroe doesn’t want to be studied. Not even by the sexy scientist whose inquisitive glances stir up desires he isn’t ready to handle. He came to Steele Ridge to be alone, to battle his nightmares and the memories triggering them. But Riley’s gentle seduction is as relentless as her curiosity. She soothes his wounded soul . . . and fires up his defensive instincts. But when her research sparks a deadly conspiracy, Coen is exactly what she needs.

When Riley is targeted by a sociopath bent on silencing her forever, Coen will do anything to protect her. But can he save the woman he loves without losing himself in the process?

Customer Reviews

Fast paced...couldn’t put down

Returning to Steele Ridge I know I will be immersed in a story of romance, mystery, suspense and intrigue...Coen and Riley’s story took off from its onset gaining momentum through subterfuge and with flashbacks from a subplot that brought with it the horrors of the evils in the world destroying the lives of the men and women risking their many instances their mental and emotional keep us safe from those evils.

I had difficulty putting the book down once I started reading it...with Ms Devlyn’s trademark fast paced and intelligent dialog, witty repartee between family members, and the vividness of her scenery my mind’s eye created, I couldn’t turn the pages fast enough...yet I didn’t want the story to end either. I’m looking forward to what is on the horizon for the Kingston family.

This ARC book was complimentary, provided by the author. I am voluntarily providing my honest review.

Getting lost in Coen and Riley’s story was a given from the first chapter.
