She may be aloof, and more pretty than gorgeous, but Alani Rivers is the kind of woman a hot-blooded mercenary can't forget, no matter how hard he tries. So when Jackson Savor wakes up next to the naked, sleeping beauty—with no memory of what happened—he knows he's been drugged…even if Alani doesn't.

After she was kidnapped, Alani vowed never to trust another man again. Still, something about this strong, sexy hero with the tender touch makes her want to believe him. As Jackson hunts down a mysterious intruder, he swears he'll move heaven and earth to keep Alani safe. But what really happened that night? And will the truth bring them closer than they ever thought possible—or put Alani squarely in harm's way again?

Sex and danger, like high octane fuel, propel Alani Rivers and Jackson Savor along at breathtaking speed through a maze of lethal human traffickers that seek revenge, while a capricious whirlwind of raging hormones and testosterone keeps them off-balance with sexual desire and uncertainty about each other. WOW!

Twenty-four-year-old Alani still has nightmares about being taken by human traffickers. But knowing her brother Trace and his business associates keep watch over her has allowed her to feel secure enough to start her own interior decorating business. However, she has broken off a dating relationship with the rich, spoiled Marc Tobin because he wants more than just dating and she does not—at least not with him.

The gorgeous Jackson Savor with a beach-bum fa├žade, a member of Trace’s organization, cannot keep his mind off Alani. He’s had lots of needs in his life, some basic, some frivolous, and some carnal (he loves women), but he has never had such an undying, driving need like he has for Alani. He knows her history and will do whatever it takes to make her world right, if only she will let him. Just when it looks like he might get things on track with her, old enemies from past missions intrude endangering not only him and Alani, but also the irrepressible Arizona Storm whom Jackson tries desperately to keep safe even though he makes it difficult.

Savor the Danger is the third book in the Men Who Walk the Edge of Honor series. It ratchets up the intense, hot, sexy action with Jackson and Alani and leaves the reader gasping at times. Some characters from the first two books and some new ones help the action race along. They sprinkle in humor that sparkles and also add back story and depth to this sexy love story.

Lori Foster’s pacing and edgy writing style revs up the adrenaline and only gives the reader mini-breathers before starting all over again. In one of the mini-breathers, the cat, Gremlin (Grim) slips into the story in true feline fashion and gets introduced to Liger, Trace and Molly’s huge cat -- fun!

Ms. Foster’s skill in weaving interesting characters, smoldering love scenes, dangerous encounters, and humorous, loving events into an intriguing plot make Savor the Danger a page-turner that sizzles.
