British Agent Nathaniel Bradley is tasked with bringing home a stolen heirloom. After tracking the Faberge egg all the way to a group of criminals in New York, Bradley infiltrates a ring of con artists and gets sucked into the role of a high priced prostitute.

While hoping for a chance to take back what is rightfully his, Bradley's sole mission becomes to seduce Tony Terranova, Jr, the heir to a notorious mafia dynasty. Though Tony is strikingly handsome, the usually dominant Bradley is hesitant to submit to the sexual whims of a dangerous Mafioso.

What Bradley doesn't expect is for Tony to fall to his knees so eagerly for him, leaving him blindsided by how intensely their dark tastes complement each other. Now Bradley is caught up in a deadly game of lies and desire, where what he truly wants may not be what duty requires.

Nathaniel 'Nate' Bradley is a British agent with a mission. Find a stolen Faberge egg by any means and return home to England. On the way, he finds his mission changing to a more pleasurable yet more dangerous one. Dangerous for him mission-wise and dangerous for his heart.

Tony Terranova, Jr is the son of one of the most notorious Mafia crime moguls and Bradley is tasked with seducing him to complete his mission. Bradley finds his Dominant side being put to good use when Tony turns out to be more than happy to submit to Bradley's dark tendencies.

I enjoyed this book. It was a whirlwind of intrigue and excitement, cavorting from England to the U.S. Double and double-double agents abound, with a plot that twists and turns from one extreme to the next. I found I managed to follow it mostly, although I had to page back occasionally to check on something just to make it clear in my mind. That's probably more me than the book though.

There was romance, heartache and plenty of sex. Lots of sex and BDSM play, and these two men scorched the pages with their passion. Tony is a really engaging "villain" and Bradley makes the perfect spy. The storyline was interesting as it flew along at a pace of action, sex, witty banter, more sex and more action.

Lori Toland writes engaging dialogue with characters that are likeable and tug at your heartstrings.

I'd definitely recommend this book to anyone wanting a hot, action packed read with plenty of quirky characters, two main heroes that make the pages burn and a fascinating glimpse into the world of international intrigue and deception.
