More thrilling and sexy romantic suspense from The Protectors series—an ex-Special Forces operative must pull off his most daring mission yet when the woman he loves is in danger…
A very enjoyable addition to the series. With sex, romance and Russian mobsters, I think this one has a little something for everyone. Mike is full of so much self-hatred, I just wanted to give him a hug but I’ll settle for reading his journey to a HEA instead.
~SCORCHING BOOK REVIEWS
“Nightfire” will take readers on a suspense-filled and sexy ride where a tortured, alpha hero must deal with his demons in order to protect the woman who completes him. Lisa Marie Rice is a master at telling this type of story.
Lisa Marie Rice has romanticizing action and adventure stories down to a science. In “Nightfire,” readers get an emotionally-charged tale of a sister finding her long-lost family, of a fragile woman and a tortured man finding true love and of good guys taking down a nasty group of Russian, pedophiliac sex slavers. The story kept me on the edge of my seat, like most of Rice’s novels do.

This tale is sure to please readers who enjoy stories of love at first sight.
Now Mike. Oh my, how I love an alpha hero that’s so vulnerable and dealing with an incredibly tragic past. He’s a true protector and will do anything to keep Chloe safe, but she protects him too. For the first time, he’s able to fully open up to someone about what he went through the day his family died and it’s a great, emotional scene and I just love how Mike was written. He’s tough on the outside, but a total softy when it came to Chloe. And of course their insanely hot sex scenes just added that much more. They’re a couple whose relationship was easy to believe in and they felt well matched. A scene between them would end and I couldn’t wait to find out what would happen with them next.

Romantic Times recently interviewed me on the release of Nightfire. Here’s a glimpse of what I had to say:
Lisa Marie Rice On Her Latest Erotic Romance Nightfire
BY RT BOOK REVIEWS, FEBRUARY 21, 2012
Author Lisa Marie Rice wraps up her Protectors trilogy with this month’s Nightfire. The series finale focuses on the last of three smoldering foster brothers who all have military training — and heroines they will do anything to shield from danger. Nightfire‘s hero, former Marine Mike, is no exception. When he meets his foster brother’s long-lost sister, Chloe it is love at first sight, but things don’t go smoothly for these two: there are dangerous Russian mobsters who want Chloe out of the picture. Get a special look at Mike, Chloe and their roadblocks to romance in today’s author interview with Lisa Marie Rice.
Nightfire centers around two very different characters. Mike, a former marine, sniper and now successful security expert, commands a room. Chloe on the other hand is master at blending after surviving a very painful childhood. When writing their story, was it ever difficult for you to imagine them as a couple?
Actually, it wasn’t hard at all, because the extreme aspects of their characters were artificially induced by great trauma in their pasts. They would have been different people — they would have been themselves — if they hadn’t known tragedy at such a young age. Mike is angry as hell at the loss of his family to violence and has been since he was a kid. That anger was never dealt with and thus never dissipated.
Chloe was brutalized twice while very vulnerable and hasn’t quite realized that she’s not vulnerable any more.
Both of them need each other in so many ways, but particularly, each lances the wounds left by trauma and tragedy and each completes the other.
Mike’s huge anger at the loss of his family is partly dictated by the fact that nothing ever took its place. Now he has a family of his own to love, which he desperately needed. His anger is gone and he is whole.
Chloe has not only become physically stronger, thanks to Mike, but spiritually stronger as well. All her life she felt as if she were on the sidelines, watching other people lives their lives. She felt alone and alienated. But not now. Now she is strong and loved and happy.
It’s really great to find someone who completes you.
They are both better people now that they have found each other. They actually make a great couple!

Book Binge recently posted a review of Reckless Night. They had this to say:
“I found the story fascinating and felt as if I had a glimpse of this man and woman’s souls, of the passion that never seemed to grow old, and the fearless protectiveness that they felt for each other. And while I seldom give novellas a very high rating–they are just so short–I am going to hopefully reflect my conviction that the writing and the intensity of this short work are worthy of a better rating than I would normally give: 4 out of 5.”

Nightfire–Mike’s story–is coming out February 7. One of the basic things to know about Mike Keillor is that he was a Marine. IS a Marine, because once a Marine always a Marine, even after service is over. The Corps saved him from likely prison when he was a very angry young man. They took his strength of body and of will and turned it into something useful, something he could be proud of. So let’s take a look at the Marine Corps, what makes these soldiers so unique. I guess you start with induction. Below is a famous clip from Full Metal Jacket. The ‘actor’ is a real Marine Drill Instructor. It seems like mental torture but what he’s doing is saving their lives. How will they react to battle stress? He’s about to find out.
Fresh Fiction will be featuring Reckless Night on their site today, Friday, Dec. 16, in their Fresh Pick section. Check out the book at http://freshfiction.com/pick.php
The reviewers at Fresh Fiction had this to say about Reckless Night:
You can think of the novella RECKLESS NIGHT as a long epilogue to Dangerous Passion. Having not read the other books in the Protector’s series (an oversight I plan to rectify), I was less appreciative than I might have been otherwise at checking-in with familiar characters. In this case, a reunion with Viktor “Drake” Drakovich and his wife Grace, both presumed dead in a fire. Drake left behind his billion dollar arms-dealing criminal empire. He and Grace are hiding out on a private Island to avoid those who would be happy to make sure he was really dead. The only thing that might tempt him to risk being seen in public is making Grace happy. Will his attempt to give Grace the perfect Christmas gift cost them everything?
I’m sure RECKLESS NIGHT will be a treat for fans of the Protector’s series. This is an atypical holiday story in many ways. The romantic element is between a happily married couple, the husband is a criminal in hiding, and the primary threat is the potential for discovery. I enjoyed the loving relationship between Grace and Drake. Though uncomplicated, the plot and storytelling kept my attention. It was also fun to be reminded about how Christmas is celebrated in the Southern Hemisphere.
