Lynnwood Thatcher Windsor has lived a lot of lies. Seen a lot of good men go down.
But he will not stand by and watch as the world he’s built from the ground up burns to ashes before his eyes. Even if he has to build an army to combat the problem he sees brewing around him.
One step at a time, he carefully lays out his plan, building layer after careful layer until everything is where he wants it to be.
Every part is impeccably played, his pawns are in the perfect place, and then she barrels into his life, totally scattering every single piece he’s set in motion.
The bad thing is, she doesn’t even realize how badly she’s messed up until she’s roused the beast.
The day that Six Ines Broussard met Lynnwood Thatcher Windsor was the worst day of her life.
First, she has a public breakup with a man she’s not even dating. Second, she has to deal with a black-tie event that she’d rather gouge her eyes out than to go to. Third, she then has to sit at a table for hours on end with the one man she despises.
Just wanting a break, she thinks she’ll lose herself for a few hours and do what she loves to do best—spend time by herself and go for a walk in the middle of nowhere, spot some birds, and get a little sun. Only, her day doesn’t go nearly as planned.
She walks right into the middle of hell. And at the center of it? Lynnwood Thatcher. The mayor. The man that she took one glance at on the night of his inauguration and dismissed as boring. A total stick in the mud.
Only, he’s not so boring shirtless, in the middle of nowhere, doing things that are very illegal.
At first, she’s appalled. Then her interest gets piqued. Stuck-up suit is hot! And he has tattoos. Oh, and let’s not forget one hell of a mouth on him!
Then he goes and kidnaps her, and she realizes that nobody is quite as hot as you thought they were when they’re now holding you hostage.

If you’ve looked at my blog, you’ll see that I have a huge love for Lani Lynn Vale books, so I was excited to get a brand new series with characters that have been in the background but whose back stories have been intriguing. If anyone has not dived it to LLV’s world, this is actually a good place to start because we don’t have as many characters from the other books that require an explanation as to why they are being mentioned or in a certain scene. I’d highly recommend it for newbies and long time fans of the author’s books.
Lynn is the epitome of dirty, sexy, silver haired alpha male and I am in love! I honestly think that author has written her dirtiest bad boy ever and I am here for it. Every page with him in it is deliciously dark and if it is possible to fall in to instant lust with a character, he’s it for me. Older than our heroine Six, he is also Mayor who rides a motorcycle and takes the law into his hand to keep his town safe. Can you say swoon? I knew you could.
Six is a sarcastic, snarky female that says what’s on her mind, who doesn’t take anyone’s crap and gives Lynn a ride for his money. The banter between them is hilarious, and the chemistry is off the charts hot. She is also insecure after the hell her father has put her thru but Lynn is more than ready to fight for what he wants most and it’s her.
“When a man such as yourself undresses in front of a woman, there’s nothing else that can be done but make sure you have a clear view.”
I devoured this book in a day. I loved every page. I love the vigilante aspect of the story and a new group of bad ass alphas with dark back stories and finding their lady love? Sign me up ASAP. 4.5 Deliciously Dark Stars.
