Intriguing Summer Reading

Sometimes it just takes a title to grab my attention and make me want to pick up a book and start reading it. That was how I felt the minute I saw Unbound. Doesn't that title just catch your interest and make you curious about what might be in those pages? It certainly made me curious. Unbound is the latest offering from author Kendra Greenwood. And if the title and cover weren't enough, the blurb provided more intrigue:

You’re not allowed to be a coward and be in love. You must choose one.

Special Agent Laura Logan had a difficult childhood and that’s putting it mildly. Laura channeled her buried rage into her studies, earned a law degree and joined the FBI. As a member of the new human trafficking task force, Laura wants to impress and she wants to make the perps pay.
Detective Lieutenant Steve Moretti moonlights at a very exclusive adult club, his reward is a free membership along with other perks. His family is pressuring him to find a nice woman and settle down, but that bridge was burned by his ex. His new view: Marriage is betting half your stuff that you’ll love someone forever.

A kidnapping shocks Steve’s town and the FBI is called in. Steve and Laura meet at the crime scene, sparks fly, and they work the case together. As passion ignites, their no-love commandment is tested. 

Can they overcome the heartbreak of betrayal and learn to love before it’s too late? Are they so afraid they refuse to love at all?

Yes, very intriguing, wouldn't you say? This is book two in the Steel and Desire series but it reads as a stand alone as well.

Author Kendra Greenwood says she has always been a storyteller. She often told stories to her kids at bedtime
in lieu of reading to them. A serious daydreamer, she tells us that she used to think that it was the complete opposite of her education and work in the sciences, but now she says realizes scientists are the ultimate daydreamers. Fantasy has always been an escape for Kendra. She admits she enjoys weaving a thrilling romantic tale around TV and film characters, which is her favorite way to fall asleep at night. Inspired by authors J.R. Ward, Cherise Sinclair and Sylvia Day, she says she decided to write her own series: Steel and Desire. Now she has finished book two. Will there be a book three? We can only hope so!

Kendra grew up on the beaches of Long Island’s bucolic east end, but recently relocated to Virginia. When she’s not writing she can be found in her kitchen whipping up something scrumptious or in the studio painting, or fusing glass into decorative dishes.
