The Panther's Lair

Sydney Chase has seen her share of men. There have been some good ones, bad ones and some that almost made her consider marriage. But like all the others they deceived her. So it comes as a surprise that Raimond Decoudreau is another man that is making her libido go wild. Of all the other men she has dated something about Raimond makes her forget about caution and just risk it all. She has no idea what is happening but knows that Raimond is dangerous but also sinful. Can she risk her heart once again for a man she knows will be bad for her?

I loved Emerald Bishops latest and have to say this is one bad boy worth reading. Raimond Decoudreau is one man that Sydney should definitely be careful about. In the book he’s charming, lethal, sexy and oh so mysterious. Yet Sydney is a woman who is not afraid of risking her heart again. But she might have gotten more than love in this man. The sex and passion is there and I loved how they met. Throughout the book Raimond never reveals what he truly is until towards the middle. Man this book is worth reading. Great job Esmeralda.
