Taken By Love by Sharon Kleve is the beginning of a hot new series.
Book one of the exciting Taken Series will slip you into the world of drug cartels, DEA operations, and the never-waiving love between Arden and Lucy.
Arden Jones is a DEA agent and has seen and done it all. His transfer to a desk job is finally in reach. But, when his good friend is brutally murdered he must go after the cartel one more time while protecting the ones he loves.
Lucy Farris arranges flowers for a living, lives in a quaint house in the outskirts of Seattle, and has two adorable Siamese cats. The last thing she expects is to be kidnapped and used as bait to by the cartel to hunt the man she loves.
I read the ebook and listened to the audiobook. I strongly recommend the ebook. The story itself is engaging and sets the mood for the remainder of the series but the narrator's voice on the audiobook nearly ruined it for me. I'm so glad I rediscovered the book by reading it for myself. Despite being short, the characters are well developed and the action moves along quickly. Without giving anything away, I can safely recommend the book for those who like romantic suspense.
And, yea, it was the hot cover that caught my eye when I first saw the book on NetGalley! Admit it... you love it too. That man is yummier than a mocha latte.
