For a tough as nails Dom hunting a sadistic serial killer is nothing compared to losing his heart.
Rome Carino is hunting a predator. One who likes to hurt submissives and the most popular BDSM club’s patrons are being targeted. With each fresh kill, he gets more brazen. Rome knows he just needs one little break, but before he can make headway, the FBI shows up. Worse, the uptight, buttoned-down Special Agent Maria Callahan suggests a plan that is dangerous, but worth it because it might just catch the killer. If Rome can keep his mind on the case and off the beautiful FBI agent, he'll be just fine.
Maria is still trying to step out of her legendary father's shadow and knows just how to do it. Luring the killer by posing as Rome's new sub seems like a good idea. That is, until undercover becomes real life and she finds herself tangled up with a man who amazes and scares her at the same time. Her growing attraction to the Honolulu Police Detective is a little too much to handle. Even knowing that, she can't help falling in love with the tough Dom and losing herself in the games they play in the bedroom.
Rome is overwhelmed by his need for Maria. He has never had a sub respond to him the way she does and no matter what he does, he feels himself slipping off that cliff into love. As their relationship starts to unfold, he realizes that he will do anything to win her heart, to convince her to become his sub for a lifetime. But before he can do anything, the killer turns his attention on Rome and the one thing he holds dear: Maria.
WARNING: The following book contains: A Dom who thinks he can do no wrong, a new sub who is about to teach him he can, palm trees, a trip or two to Rough ‘n Ready, a flirty Aussie Dom with questionable motives, old friends, and a new enemy. Yeah, it might be called Harmless, but you Addicts know it’s anything but.
A little harmless sub … a lot of harmless Dom!
FBI agent Maria Callahan has mighty big shoes to fill and needs to solve this case to prove to the other agents in her department that she is worthy of her position, not just riding the coat tails of her father’s legacy. Maria has a plan—bait the hook with herself as a sub to lure in the killer—hopefully ending the sideways glances from within her department once and for all. She enlists the help of Rome Carino, HPD detective and frequenting Dom of Rough-N-Ready and look out … Game. Is. On. Rome finds out she is not the icy woman she first appeared to be, she’s the perfect sub and a truly beautiful woman who evokes reactions in him that throw him for a loop. For Maria, Rome just may be the ambassador for the male species, proving that not all have an agenda to use her as a step-ladder to gain position…well, maybe as a Dom he DOES gain position, but only in the bedroom!
I’m a Big Harmless fan of the Little Harmless series! Rome and Maria are loveable characters in this story with good dialogue, even pacing, sexy bedroom scenes, suspense and an HEA. I’m anxiously awaiting #7 – A Little Harmless Fascination – Coming in January 2012.
