When the lines are erased, the passion begins.
Lines define Tracy Rhodes’s life, and she has no say in the matter once she is sworn in as second-in-command of the free world. But the lines are crushed beneath the boots of her security team’s special advisor during a high-profile event in Vegas. The towering warrior with the haunting stare shatters her composure, invades her libido, and makes her yearn for things she shouldn’t. Sweaty, illicit things…with her body pinned beneath his…
John Franzen, six and a half feet of rigid composure on the outside, is a lost man on the inside. What’s he doing here? A guy isn’t supposed to survive eleven years in Special Forces, especially after the crazy missions he’s been assigned. Accepting the security gig in Vegas is just a favor to a friend―a way to fill time that’s become too damn empty lately. Until the cushy “babysitting job” becomes the most treacherous mission of his life, and the politician he’s protecting becomes the woman in his bed. The lover beneath his bonds. The submissive he longs to claim forever.
She’s destined for marble halls and an oval office, and he’s wired for jungles, dirt, and violence. Will her passion be enough to tame his demons? To claim the ultimate warrior as her own?
Can this be read as a standalone?
The characters are introduced in other stories but this is definitely their story. So could be read without reading others in the series.Ruled by Angel Payne
Tanya Rae’s rating: 5 of 5 stars
Ruled is the 10th book in the Honor Bound Series. Each book can be read as standalones.
This is Tracy Livia Rhodes (Vice President of the Free World) and Captain John Keoni Franzen’s story. Even Vice Presidents have a sex life.
For some reason, I didn’t get that this could be a political romance and it really wasn’t but, it bordered on it, given that Tracy Rhodes was a VP. It gave me trepidations when I started reading it because that isn’t the usual type of book that I love or even like. Well, let me tell you I enjoyed the H…. out of this book!
Oh and this story was Hot, Hawt, Hot! I had a LOL moment after reading that he was learning the secrets of her back grotto. So there is some back door play in this book.
John Frazen is very much an Alpha in which I LOVE in my books. He knew how to dominate Tracy given that she is a VP and a very strong woman. But, is submissive to John most of the time. Unless she has to go into Tigress or mom mode.
I enjoyed reading John and Tracy’s story. There is an HEA which I always love and I can’t wait to read Angel Payne’s next book. 4.5 stars
