Reeling from the death of her daring Navy SEAL brother, reserved McKenzie Prescott decides to honor him in the only way she can think of—by finishing his bucket list. Suddenly, she’s doing things she’s never dreamed of—like jumping off waterfalls, and learning to scuba dive.

And when she meets an intoxicating stranger in Las Vegas, she decides to do something else that’s daring...

A respected Navy SEAL until his job cost him his family, Noah Payne has gone off the grid with one thing on his mind—revenge. His current mission—to locate a missing shipment of guns—is the last piece of the puzzle, but his only lead is Liam Prescott, and he’s dead. Getting close to Liam’s sister, McKenzie, is his best bet to find the information he needs.

But keeping his hands off the sexy McKenzie is turning out to be the real challenge...

Three books featuring three deliciously dirty SEAL’s and three ladies who discover a fondness for the less-vanilla end of the bedroom antics scale make up this series, and taking us to destinations full of heat in more ways than one, there’s no scrimping on said antics.

Smoking hot and full of suspense. What better way to get through a bucket list than with a hot ex-SEAL, traveling the world?

Excellent writing with a wonderful balance between suspense, humor and heat

This is a new author for me so I wasn't sure quite what to expect, plus suspense stories (I'd class this as romantic suspense mixed with a bit of erotica) can be a little hit or miss for me--for example, heroines who are too ...more

This book started off with a bang and continued with hit after hit as the story unfolded. Blake has created an interesting world, where it isn't always clear who is the good guy and who might be bad for your health. The book is well paced and not easy to put down.

Our protagonist, McKenzie, is deter ...more

This was my first experience with this author, although it won't be the last since many threads are left hanging at the end of this book.

First time on author but it would seem she also is using this as opening in a series. This will center around McKenzie and Noah.

Wow, this is a hard review to keep spoiler free, but I shall do it! Rogue is an exciting, suspenseful romance. It's about revenge and living. The action starts on page one and keeps going. It sucks you in and doesn't release you until the very end.
