Book Description

  • Bonus book with Royce Walk -- SECRETS EXPOSED -- OUT NOW
The Walker Brothers...

Tall, dark, and deadly, these three brothers run Walker security. Each brother is unique in his methods and skills, but all share key similarities. They are passionate about those they love, relentless when fighting for a cause they believe in, and all believe that no case is too hard, no danger too dark. Dedication is what they deliver, results are their reward.


Royce Walker, a former FBI Agent, who's opened a private security firm with his brothers, has always had the hots for the prim, proper Assistant District Attorney, but considered her hand's off because of a family connection. However, when danger threatens Lauren, he isn't willing to stand by and watch her get hurt. Now the passion for survival is only rivaled by the passion burning between them. And that passion, might just be the death of them both.

He scooted her off his lap and settled down on the floor in front of her, his hands sliding up Lauren's calves, to her knees that she'd primly pressed together. The heady scent of her perfume, her home, her very feminine presence, seeped into his senses.

She stared down at him, a soft 'doe in headlights' look on her face. "Royce?" His name was a soft plea on her lips, filled with uncertainty. He'd confused her, sent her mixed messages, in his effort to do what was right.

He felt like a wolf, a hungry wolf who wanted to devour this woman, and there was no way that didn't show in his eyes, no way the energy, the need he felt for her, didn't radiate off of him.

"You're beautiful," he said, softly, calmly, when the rage of hormones inside him was anything but. He kissed her knees, one and then the other, reaffirming his decision to let her pleasure be his tonight. "And I'm going to show you how much I mean that."
She swallowed hard, her delicate, kissable throat bobbing with the action. "I'm not sure I know what that means."

He brushed her dress up her thighs. "You will," he promised and kissed her delicate little knee again.
She laughed - a nervously feminine sound. "I'm not sure I know what that means either."

"You don't need to know what it means," he said, his fingers tracing the lace of her thigh high pantyhose, the sexy lingerie choice confirming what he'd always suspected. Lauren might be prim and proper on the outside, but there was a sensual woman beneath the exterior who wanted to come out and play - and he wanted to be the man who she played with. He wanted to be that man tonight, but no matter how tempting that might be, tonight wasn't the night. But he'd be damned if he'd allow her to doubt his desire for her, his absolute, complete attraction to her. "You just need to know how it feels." His hands slipped inside her thighs, easing her legs apart, his lips trailing a path up one of them.

Hot Secrets by Lisa Renee Jones 5 out of 5 Licks

A yummy new series about a group of brothers who have formed their own security business-Walker Security. I love knowing there will be more books in a series!! And hot damn I really enjoyed this one!! Another suspense where I wasn't immediately sure who the bad guy was. There were plenty of twists and turns to keep this one very interesting. I loved the heat between Royce and Lauren. They started with a spark and it built to a full inferno. The sex scenes were minimal but what was there was really hot. I loved seeing the demanding Royce trying to control his dominance around Lauren. It was very sweet. A great book full of adventure and twists and turns. I can't wait to see where the series goes from here! I was upset that there is a prequel out that I haven't read yet. Anyone who knows me knows that I am a hard-core freak about reading books in order. I will fix that as soon as I can though. I am ashamed to admit this is the first book by Ms. Jones that I've read but I have others by here that I'm starting right now!

Here check out a snippet from Jones' website:

THE HERO: Royce Walker--the oldest Walker brother and a former FBI Negotiator. The silent type, Royce urges others to talk, having learned there are far more rewards from listening than running his mouth. When he does speak, he doesn't hold back, his opinions made readily available. He can be abrupt and tough, overbearing even. But none of this stops women from seeing the appeal of his rock hard six-foot-three frame and long, dark hair.

4.0 out of 5 stars Good Read April 22, 2012
By caitb
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
After reading some of the previous reviews regarding typos, I was a little concerned about buying this book. I was pleased to see that the problems must have been corrected because my copy did not include the many errors that others had commented about.
As for the story it's self, I was also pleased. The story has good balance between romance, suspense and even a little mystery. I did have a few minor issues but none that kept me from turning to the next page. First, the writer implies that the main characters have meet before it is never discussed and leaves you wondering about the history of these two characters. And although the writer does an acceptable job wrapping up the story I would have liked to know what the "Blackmail" was.
All in all this was a good read that I am glad I took a chance on!

5.0 out of 5 stars SO LOVED!!!!! February 10, 2012
By Kelly
Format:Kindle Edition
The Walker Brothers are to die for yummy. Who doesn't like a set of brothers who are tough, good looking and willing to put their life on the line to protect others.

In Hot Secrets (book 1 in the Tall, Dark & Deadly series) we are introduced to Royce Walker, the oldet Walker Brother and attorney Lauren Reynolds. Royce has been hired to look into threats against Lauren's life. But he can't tell Laruen that he has been hired to protect or who hired him.

Once Royce meets Lauren face to face he finds that he wants more than just to protect her, he just plan wants her. Royce is willing to go to any lengths to keep Lauren safe from anyone who may want to hurt her. But who is going to protect his heart from Lauren?

This was a great book. I am really enjoying the romantic suspense genre these days. Lisa does a wonderful job of always keeping me guessing about who is the bad guy in this book. I am normally pretty good at guessing who done it. I didn't want to put this book down until I got to the very end. And I am so looking forward to the next book in this series.

Thanks you Lisa for writing such a wonderful story and thank you for allowing me to read and review this story for you.

5.0 out of 5 stars A Great Book February 8, 2012
Format:Kindle Edition
Lauren Reynolds is an assistant DA that is working on her next big case. Lauren has always been a good lawyer and a good daughter to her Senator father. Now as Lauren prepares for her big murder case she starts having problems and she isn't sure if it is related to her work or to her father. Lauren is doing her job and the last thing she needs is more distractions especially in the form of one Royce Walker, even if he is one of the best security experts around.

Royce Walker used to work in the FBI until he started a security business with his brothers. Now because of a family connection he needs to consider Lauren off limits but that is a lot easier said than done. With the sparks flying between the two of them Royce's job just got a lot harder to handle. Now he is going to have to find a way to protect Lauren and still dealing with the passion that is almost too hot to handle.

Lauren needs to trust Royce to handle the treat against her and try and figure out just where that threat is coming from. Is it related to her current case or to an older one or is it somehow connected to her father? If Lauren and Royce can't figure it out quickly it just might cost them more than they are prepared to pay.

This is a fast paced story that will keep the reader turning the pages and trying to figure just what is going on. This is one that is worth reading and not to be missed. The storyline will keep the reader engaged in the story with trying to find out just who the bad guy is in this one. This is a great introduction to three brothers that will have the reader eagerly looking forward to the next installment in this series.
