Pursued by the Devil by Carole Mortimer

Attorney Lindsay Carlisle is rattled to find the wealthy and panty-melting Russian, Mikhail Lysenko, waiting for her in her office. He is the man trying to purchase her client’s company, and his presence unaccompanied by his attorney is inappropriate at best.

But his reasons for being there have nothing to do with business; he is there for pure pleasure and makes it clear he wants Lindsay to be his. While deep down his presence alone sends thrills to her very core, she spurns his advances for professional reasons. However, Mikhail doesn’t relent until he gets what he wants.

Now that someone is leaving black roses at her doorstep, his attention and protection is exactly what Lindsay needs. Lindsay allows Mikhail to keep her safe until they can identify and stop her tormentor, even though she is risking her heart with someone who is emotionally dangerous.

Billed as romantic suspense, Mortimer’s (Alpha series) attempt at thrills is contrived and they fall flat, devaluing the hot romance between Mikhail and Lindsay; this is perfunctory reading that entertains but isn’t particularly memorable.
