Stranger, speak softly...
Biotech tycoon Noah Gallagher has a deadly secret: his clandestine training as a super-soldier gives him abilities that go far beyond human. Yet he's very much a man. When Caro Bishop shows up at his Seattle headquarters with a dangerous secret agenda, his ordered life is thrown into chaos. Caro is a woman like no other—and her luminously sensual beauty cloaks a mystery he must solve.
Caro's lying low, evading a false charge of murder. She means to clear her name, and she'll do whatever it takes to survive—but seducing a man like Noah is more than she bargained for. His amber eyes have the strangest glow when he looks at her—she could swear he sees the secrets of her heart. The desire smoldering in Noah's eyes awakens her own secret hunger, but Caro has to resist his magnetic pull. Anyone close to her becomes a target. The only right thing to do is run, far and fast, but Caro can't outrun Noah's ferocious intensity—or deny the searing passion that explodes between them.
Nothing else matters—until a vicious enemy bent on the ultimate revenge puts his murderous plan into play. Noah and Caro must battle for their lives...and their love...
Scorching hot alpha male; explosive chemistry; steamy scenes!!!
Words were gone. Air was gone. Air didn’t matter. Nothing moved while she moved. by Noah

His secrets are too dangerous to come out, making him need to keep control of every aspect of his life and of his family. What he has never expected is that a woman could make him lose control of himself. What type of leader doesn’t have self-control?
Caro is on the run. She has cheated death a couple of times on the last 8 months. When she gets an opportunity of a sexy one-night stand, she decides to play pretend for one day of her life. What she didn’t expect is that one night with Noah, could be more dangerous than a lifetime on the run. She needs to clear her name of false accusations, but how can she run away again, when all she wants to do is stay?
Their meeting could be defined as random, but it didn’t feel random at all. More like inevitable. And fucking incredible. by Noah
Right Through Me is the beginning of a great new series to come. The world built by the author is very intriguing and you end the book wishing for more. I could read book two right now! The book kept me guessing until the end and Ms. McKenna’s ideas are very creative and not something I’ve seen before. The pace of the story was not always very fluid, mostly because this new world was a bit complicated to grasp and we don’t get all the answers on this first installment. I have a feeling there are so many other players and plot twists to show up still, that we will have a long journey ahead (which works perfectly for me). This book was so addictive that I couldn’t put down. I read in one sitting, another of those 3 hrs of sleep nights, because I couldn’t go to bed before finishing it.
Yes, the steamy scenes deserve a paragraph of their own. This book is hot!!! This couple’s chemistry was undeniable. We could feel the sexual tension throughout the read and I had many moments of fanning my self. At the same time, their love story had a beautiful poetic touch. Some descriptions were breathtaking and Ms. McKenna nailed it down really well the balance between passion and love of the scenes.
He wanted into the heart of her mysteries. To unravel, master her, keep the keys, know the codes. All for his own greedy, possessive self. by Noah
P.S: I like the cover. It’s hot! But I don’t believe it tells the story of the book. It’s a good cover, but not an excellent one. Looking at it, I would guess a shifter or an alien, not a super soldier. I’m not certain I would have bought this book without reading the blurb (something that crazy me does very often).
P.S2: This book has one of the best marriage proposal I’ve seen. I’m keeping it for my 25th wedding anniversary speech in 6 yrs!
You MAY buy this book because it has amazing characters; you SHOULD get this book because you are a fan of the author; but you MUST read this book if you are looking for a never-seen-before new series to follow!!!
“Look,” he said. “I promised not to touch you. I can’t keep that promise anymore.”
She drifted closer, a cloud of sunset colors. Her scent washed over his senses. His supercharged synesthesia translated her aroma into colors in his head. He wanted to strip her bare. His hands flexed with the impulse to seize her. It almost overcame him.
“Leave.” His voice was tight. “I paid you.”
“No,” she said.
“You finished your dance. You said there could be nothing more. So go.”
“Shhh.” She stretched up, touching his cheek with soft, cool fingertips. Then, to his astonishment, she pressed a hot, soft kiss to his jaw.
“This is not helping,” he growled.
She rose up on her bare feet, her mouth near his. Never quite getting there. No kiss . . . just the caressing heat of her breath. The teasing promise of . . . maybe . . . almost.
He was so close to losing control, he didn’t dare inhale.
He stepped back. Not far enough. The sweetness of her perfume taunted him.
She didn’t move. Not one inch. She was enjoying this, feeling her power. It made his teeth grind, and his dick ache.
“You’re still here,” he said.
“I’m not ready to leave.” Her voice was a drifting whisper. “I like the way this makes me feel.”
“I’m ready,” he said. “And it’s my goddamn office.”
“Yes. After hours. And we’re alone. More or less.” She closed the slight distance between them with a single step.
So she was seducing him. He got the message—but he still didn’t dare breathe.
Then she took his hand, and pressed it against her bare belly.
They both inhaled sharply. She was flower-petal smooth against the hard, callused skin of his palm. A flash of hot lust pumped through him.
A swift, shocked ripple went through her, as if she’d had a small orgasm, and then her hand fastened over his, holding it firmly in place. As if she welcomed the touch but didn’t dare allow his hand to wander elsewhere.
“Take the envelope,” he said. “Put it in your bag, and we’re square.”
Her fingers tightened on his hand.
“I asked for a service, you provided it, I paid you,” he said stubbornly. All business. Meeting over. Too bad his dick didn’t get the memo. He was about to explode.
Without saying a word, she turned and headed to the bathroom, purple veils fluttering behind her.
He didn’t have to wait for her to return. But he knew that he would.
She was back minutes later, wearing jeans and a baggy black T-shirt. His exotic dancing maiden was gone but she was as beautiful as ever. Her real hair was a thick, curly dark cloud, caught up in back in a tousled knot of twisted ringlets. Some of them dangled around her face.
“Sorry,” he said stiffly. “That got out of hand.”
“It’s OK. Not your fault.” She looked down at herself. “I thought it was better to have this conversation in street clothes,” she said. “To see if the fantasy melted away for you without the props. Better for both of us to know right now.”
He looked her up and down. Blood roared in his ears. “That’s not happening.”
Her sig pulsed, excited pinks and reds. “So?”
“I promised not to touch you, and I broke that promise. With your help.”
She nodded reluctantly.
“If you stay here, I’ll break it again. Let me put that right out in the open.”
