Gil is not the only man who wants Moira in his life. The killer is out there, waiting to strike again. His next victim: Moira, the woman he has become obsessed with. Will Gil be able to keep Moira safe from a violent murderer?
Lacey Thorn engages readers from the get-go with her suspenseful opener. There is nothing like a murder to get the reader involved in the story. Add in an intense and sexy detective, a poised and hardworking woman, and you have the makings for an interesting story. Though the murder is the backbone of the story, it is the rest of it, the hero and heroine, secondary characters, and going-ons in the town that keep this story grounded. Moira does not have an easy story to tell. Not only is she being stalked by a murderer, but she is falling in love and dealing with her past and the father she is just now getting to know. It all adds up to be a heavy load, but luckily, Gil is there to shoulder the burdens. Gil and Moira become a well-matched pair as the story develops. HIS BARE OBSESSION is a gritty but well thought out romance that has plenty of intensity and spice to have you wondering where the next story is.
