Too Wild to Hold by Julie Leto

Title:Too Wild To Hold

Series: Legendary Lovers bk 2

Author: Julie Leto

Genre: Harlequin Blaze


In the sultry heat of New Orleans, a masked man stalks his next prey…private investigator Claire Lécuyer. In order to protect her, FBI agent Michael Murrieta–the descendant of a real masked legend–must go undercover at her hiding place…a sensual retreat, where decadence and sin beckon from every room.

Once immersed in this world of pleasure, Claire and Michael find themselves teased by the languidly sexual environment–and their blazing attraction to each other. But even as they “mask” their true identities, it’s too late.

Now Claire and Michael are caught up in the danger…and their desire. And the longer they stay in the sensuous world, the more dangerous it is!

Claire LaCuyer is an ex-cop turned Private Investigator.  She’s on a case to find a run away mom who frequents sex clubs.  Claire’s also on the look out for a stalker whose possibly raped other women and now has Claire in his sites.

FBI Special Agent Michael Murrieta is on the case to catch the stalker/rapist.  Michael follows Claire to the “Plantation Ball” (aka, sex party) with hopes of protecting Claire and catching the stalker.

I love Harlequin’s Blaze series books – most of the authors that write for this line are very good and the books make for a nice quick read.  This book earns the right to carry the “Blaze” name.   Let’s just say that there is a scene at the party where the hero and heroine are voyeurs to a threesome!  The chemistry between Claire and Michael is off the charts hot, their love scenes together are worth reading the book alone.

The storyline about the stalker was good; it kept me reading to find out what he was going to do.  I would say the best part about that storyline is Michael’s brother, Danny.   I was really intrigued with the Murrieta Family Ancestry, the “Famous Lover Legend”.  I just wish there was more of it in the book.

Overall this is a great summer beach read and I will be reading more books by Leto.
