He never saw her coming... 
Spencer Lark already knows too many secrets about Arizona Storm, including the nightmare she survived and her resulting trust issues. But in order to expose a smuggling ring—and continue avenging his own tragic past—the bounty hunter reluctantly agrees to make Arizona a decoy. Yet nothing has equipped him for her hypnotic blend of fragility and bravery, or for the protective instincts she stirs in him. 
Arizona wants to reclaim her life, which means acting as bait to lure the enemy into a trap. Sure it's dangerous, especially with a partner as distractingly appealing as Spencer. But as their plan—and their chemistry—shifts into high gear, Arizona may discover there's an even greater risk in surrendering her heart to a hero...

Crystal’s Thoughts:
I have followed this series faithfully since When You Dare was released and it fast became one of my favorite romantic suspense series! 


Spencer Lark really captured my attention in Savor the Danger. Who exactly is this bounty hunter? What is he up to? What side is he on? All male, absolutely alpha, and his need to help others just adds to his overall sex appeal. After losing his wife, Spencer is a protector and when he meets Arizona he recognizes a lost soul in need of rescuing. But Arizona doesn’t want to be rescued…
Arizona Storm has faced a lot in her young life but instead of letting it wear her down she has turned her experience into a weapon, one she uses fight for those who may not have the ability to protect themselves. But to take down the one person who haunts her nightmare, Arizona needs help. 
Together, Arizona and Spencer set off on a dangerous game of cat and mouse. They each may have their own reasons for wanting to take down the human trafficking ring but together find more than just a common ground, they find an undeniable passion that just might prove more dangerous to them then their enemies. 

As with the rest of the Men Who Walk the Edge of Honor series, I loved this book and couldn't out it down!
Arizona is a tough nut to crack, with a thick shell and sometimes even a thicker head; she got under my skin often. But then that hard exterior just crumbled; it happened so fast my head was spinning and that vulnerability she abruptly showed didn’t seem to jive with her character. However, she could still very much kick butt! A lot of this new side to Arizona had to do with Spencer who is very much a swoon-worthy hero. She ventures into new territory with her feelings for him and it’s terrifying for her. But as Spencer helps her heal, he finds that she is healing him as well when he didn’t even realize that he needed healing. Each must face their own inner demons if they hope find a future in each other’s arms. I love Lori Foster’s voice, you really can’t go wrong with a book from this fabulous author and I believe that this series stands out above the rest. With a fast-paced plot, intriguing characters, intense situations and nail-biting action, A Perfect Storm was a great addition to the series. While I can’t say that it was my favorite book in the series it was an enjoyable read that shouldn’t be missed. 

A Perfect Storm can be read as a stand-alone but why miss any of the deliciousness that the Men Who Walk the Edge of Honor series has to offer? This is one series that you’ll be kicking yourself in the butt over if you miss any of it!

Love this series too Crystal! I'm so a Jackson girl :)

I'm with you on Arizona. She made me twitch now and again but still won me over in the end somehow.

Don't know if you've seen it yet but in her new series the heroine in book 2 is Alice from this series (Trace of Fever). Thought that was kinda neat.

Awesome series & I LOVE this author! I have yet to read a book from her that I disliked! Plus, she's so incredibly nice to her fans. I enjoyed this book & agree that Spencer was a very swoon-worthy Alpha! Luv him!!!
