Locked In - Wicked Missions 1 by Elizabeth Raines

Leesa Bouchard hires pilots and fellow wranglers Cain Hammel and Geoff Adams to share her lucrative mission—to bring the Dreaming Death virus from the barren planet of Charos in the war torn Rhotan System to Virus Initiative Corporation on Earth.

On their return flight, they’re arrested for smuggling an “illegal” virus, despite their insistence they were hired for the job. The sentence? Quarantine—thirty days for Leesa to spend with the two men she’s fantasized about for the entire mission. As they explore their mutual attraction and nurture their growing affection, she finds herself the target of a government investigation into who contracted her to collect the deadly virus. Evidence points to terrorists from the Rhotan System who might be targeting Earth.

Can Cain and Geoff help Leesa clear her name and protect her when a government agent wants to use her as bait to capture the terrorists?

A Siren Erotic Romance

Can a futuristic Sci-Fi with one head strong woman and two drool worthy men get any hotter than this? Personally, I'm not one to get into Sci-Fi's but I have to say, this is one series that I will follow closely. Loved it. The descriptions of the surroundings throughout the book helped me to paint a vivid picture of what life was like in the world of Leesa, Cain and Geoff. Leesa's character was a favorite of mine. She is everything I look for in a leading lady. She's independent, passionate and extremely stubborn. You know when you combine those three elements, there's going to be fireworks somewhere. I instantly fell in love with both Cain and Geoff. Each was vastly different from the other and together, they made one powerful team, both in and out of the bedroom. (My personal favorite was Cain, but shhhhh don't tell, I'm not supposed to play favorites). When Cain and Geoff let their feelings for Leesa be known, the heat level goes through the roof.

A fast paced, exciting plot kept me wondering what would happen next. I can't give away anything more than what was in the blurb but you will definitely want to see what happens beyond the blurb. A captivating read, I found I couldn't put this book down. I love a good mystery and although this is a shorter novel, I found it to be highly addictive. I read Locked In in a matter of hours which is the perfect length of book for me personally. Locked In is book one in the Wicked Missions series but can also be read as a standalone. I look forward to reading more from this author and especially this series. Now excuse me while I go read Marooned, book two.
