His reckless behavior as a child caused the deaths of his entire family. On the lonely Sydney streets, the orphan found friends. Found “brothers.” Never again will Seattle Homicide Detective Heath Justice break the rules and risk his new family. Order and discipline govern his life…until he meets a curvaceous redhead. With two ugly murder cases to solve, the last thing he needs is this disconcertingly lovely, whirlwind of chaos, yet…charmed by her wit and intelligence, Heath can’t resist.

She believes rules are meant to be broken

Deep into writing a murder mystery, author London Shaw is shocked when she herself is implicated in a homicide. She can’t believe the ever-so-authoritarian Detective Heath Justice expects her to simply ignore the crime and go on about her business. Not happening. Although the man’s whiskey rough voice, cuffs, and masterful touch could melt any woman’s resistance—and does—she has a craving to do a little investigating herself.

When all or nothing is your only play

When Heath’s murder investigation threatens a far-reaching conspiracy, everyone he cares for becomes their target—including the woman he’s come to love.

The Justice brothers are back in the last instalment from Aussie author Fiona Archer, Tempting Justice, but this time it’s Heath’s time to get down and dirty with his leading lady London, a YA writer.

Following on from the explosive Craving Justice, Archer leaves nothing behind in this whirlwind of mystery, suspense, murder and the sweetest and truest love story I’ve read in a while.

Set about a month after the events of book one, Heath Justice meets his leading lady in one of the most quirky and adorably sexy cute meets there is. Right from the first time London creeps on to the page I was instantly drawn to her character and loved the contrast between the controlled rule-abiding Heath and the laid back sassy London. The pair will have you laughing one second and swooning the next as they learn to navigate each other and the situations they unwilling encounter as the book’s main events unfold.

I really am speechless when it comes to this book. Not only did I encounter just about every single emotion there is during the initial read of the book, but I’m in awe of the way Archer was able to pull the whole thing off. There is so much going on in this book, that I can not even begin to understand the mastery of the story telling that Archer has under her belt in order to pull the whole thing together so powerfully and effortlessly.

Every time I think I know what to expect from Archer’s writing, she ups the ante and has me dancing on the edge of my seat as I race the book to it’s epic conclusion. This book is everything I could have dreamed and then some. Archer’s writing style is flawless, her characters engaging and larger than life. The plot itself is complex and everything you could want from a romantic suspense book that is heavy both on the suspense and romance. This book seriously has it all and I can’t wait to dive into the rest of the series.
