In the Caribbean for his best friend's wedding, ex special-ops officer and security expert Ryan McLean meets a beautiful woman in the hotel bar. Their connection is immediate and intense, and they spend a passionate night together with pleasure as their only goal.

But when Ryan wakes the following morning to discover the beautiful woman has vanished, along with millions worth of jewels from the safe of the Saudi prince staying in the suite next door, he realizes their meeting wasn't accidental and becomes determined to find her.

A notorious thief known to authorities only as the Dragonfly, Mariana Lora has one final job to complete before she's free from the oath that bound her to a life of crime, but the sexy-as-hell Marine she spent one explosive tropical night with is hot on her heels at every turn. She has to outwit him to stay out of jail, but fighting their magnetic attraction soon becomes a game neither one of them can resist.

When Mariana's last job goes dangerously wrong and she needs Ryan's help to survive, he has to decide if their game of cat and mouse is only a game, or if he can trust this beautiful thief with something no woman has ever stolen: his heart.

5 deliciously dark and sexy stars for WICKED INTENTIONS!

Mariana Lora is in St. Croix on a job, and it's no hardship to have to seduce mercenary Ryan McLean to gain access to the suite she needs to raid. But she miscalculates Ryan's sincere desire to see her again, and the infuriating pseudo-stalker chases her to all ends of the earth to prove it. Ryan loves him a feisty woman, and his Angel would just as soon fillet him like a fish as ride him like a bull. But Mariana has given a blood oath to the Sicilian mafia, and heaven help anyone who gets in the way of what's theirs. Can Ryan and the Metrix team free her from the world's most wanted list, or will she disappear into the wind once again like the dragonfly she is?

Hot damn! This book is stop-whatever-you-were-gonna-do-and-lock-yourself-in-a-room-with-a-bottle-of-wine-or-three-and-a-battery-operated-boyfriend-and-don't-come-out-till-every-last-page-has-been-read FAN-tastic! Literally every single thing about WICKED INTENTIONS, the third book in the Wicked Games series, enthralled me, from Ryan's southern accent to Mariana's fierceness to Reynard's snobbery to the action-packed emotional ending. I loved catching up with characters from the first two books (especially Kai and Darcy) and the suspense interspersed with wicked humor that kept me smiling.

And the sex…good lawd y'all, the sex. This couple has some of the best chemistry I've ever had the pleasure of reading, and it shows in the bedroom (or shower or couch or wall). The best thing about WICKED INTENTIONS though…the snappy, witty dialogue. This entire story can be summed up in one quote from Ryan's character:

In that maddeningly reasonable way he has, he says, "You think this kinda shit happens every day? You think two people meet and have thermonuclear chemistry and make each other laugh and have mind-blowing sex and then one of them steals a fifteen-million-dollar necklace and disappears and the other one finds the first one within a few days and breaks into her hotel room and almost gets stabbed but ends up on top of her in bed?"

Swoon! I'm totally in love, both with Ryan and Mariana AND Ms. Geissinger, whose books take up the top spots in my favorites list. I can.not.wait for more!!

Bottom Line: No OM/OW or sharing; some condom use; no BDSM/kink; talk of sexual assault, human trafficking; strong violence, murder.
