Lethal Nights (Brute Force #3) by Lora Leigh

A Review by Wendy

Humans in this world are not alone...and if we take this idea...we can follow this to past generations which become legends...All cultures have families which go back in time and have had an impact on the world. Lora Leigh has created a world which follows this concept and Lethal Nights (Brute Force #3) lives in it. The feeling of more than just a love story is powerful and I was caught up in it from the start.

I had not read the first two books and had no problem with being fully aware of what was this tale.

On the surface of this story, it could be a simple tale of a divorcee who is in the throes of fighting to keep her home from foreclosure. The ex used her name to take out all sorts of loans, etc. putting everything in jeopardy. A man who works with a security company and decides to help by making the home a "safe house". The use allows the woman to keep the home and she is able to move on with her life.

But this is a Lora Leigh story and naturally, there is so much more.

The man who assists has a past which has a lineage which is dark, lethal and powerful. It is also mystical in how intense it is...which guides him to know deep in his heart, this woman is his heart...but by being so, is a danger to her.

The woman is strong and capable. She has had to overcome the realization of her marriage and what a mistake it was. She has a family which loves and supports her. She has risen out of the pain from her past marriage. Now she has met this mysterious man and she is drawn to him, she feels the need he has for her and meets it head-on.

When her home is attacked, the man is back to make sure nothing will ever happen again...But there is more to this tale and it is all-consuming. The need and chemistry between both of them is intense. It is more than sexual... it is life-affirming. There is a tie between them which cannot be denied.

All of this intensity is surrounded by a story which includes past characters from the other books and has a bit of thiller/mystery to hold interest. The sexy times are steamy, hot and full-on which Lora Leigh fans know are her forte.

If you like to read an all-encompassing story which will give you a bit of mystical along with the love story, then buckle up because this will capture you.

A gifted copy was provided by St. Martin's Press via NetGalley for an honest review.

Lora Leigh lives in the rolling hills of Kentucky, often found absorbing the ambience of this peaceful setting. She dreams in bright, vivid images of the characters intent on taking over her writing life, and fights a constant battle to put them on the hard drive of her computer before they can disappear as fast as they appeared. Lora’s family, and her writing life co-exist, if not in harmony, in relative peace with each other. Surrounded by a menagerie of pets, friends, and a teenage son who keeps her quick wit engaged, Lora’s life is filled with joys, aided by her fans whose hearts remind her daily why she writes.
