Steele doesn’t know how he wound up in this mess–with a kidnapped woman on his hands and the police hot on their trail. Now he and Laurie are in hiding at an isolated cabin, and Steele has to figure out how to extricate himself . . . and steer clear of his accidental captive whose tight, slinky clubbing attire is making him think all kinds of dangerous thoughts…
Laurie is in a relationship that's getting increasingly more bizarre. Her boyfriend started out as a sweet guy but the longer she spends time with him the more she sees he has an extremely dominant side and is far more sadistic than she realised. Luckily, her brother has noticed something seems a bit off and has called in an old friend, Steele, to watch over Laurie.
Steele rides with his friends and although he wants to help, he is really not sure their help is needed. Leaving one of the guys to keep watch over Laurie, the last thing he expects is to return home to find she really does need protection but stranger things have happened and life is about to get a lot more complicated!
So Riding Steele: Kidnapped is very short, but there's a surprising wealth of information in this book. Yes, it's the beginning and I suspect it's about to get a lot more raunchy but what really struck me was the strong personalities that leap off the page. Already I'm curious about these characters and Ms Carew has shown us just how truly nasty Laurie's boyfriend is. I will certainly read more as it's very well written and the hero, Steele, came across as having quite a dark sense of humour that's very appealing.
Not the most economical way to read a book I suspect but every reader is different; so if you enjoy quick reads with strong characters then maybe this series will suit you.
