Blurb: THIRDS Team Leader Sebastian Hobbs and Chief Medical Examiner Hudson Colbourn are as much in love now as they were nearly seven years ago when a tragic event on the job destroyed their relationship. The two drift together only to be pulled apart time and time again. When Hudson draws the interest of dangerous enemies, both within and outside the organization, Seb wants nothing more than to protect the man who still means everything to him.

As life-and-death events, an uncertain future, and startling truths draw Hudson and Seb to each other yet again, they must make a choice: trust their love and take strength from what they share, or lose what matters most… for good this time.


Review: I’ve got to admit that my heart has been yearning for Hudson and Sebastian to get together. Their bittersweet breakup, their painful meetings, and everyone else’s happiness casting a great big light onto their unhappiness? All those things made me really want their issues solved. While I would have liked a little more closure about the incident and everything around it, the overall sweet, sexy story really made me uber happy.

While Destructive Delta deals with the changes regarding TIN, they’re called out for an incident that quickly turns deadly. Information obtained there reveals that Hudson is in danger from an old enemy. Protecting him becomes Sebastian’s highest priority. While Hudson might not like it, Sebastian gets backing from the team. Imagine those two spending lots of quality time together alone….

If you’re hoping like I did that they realized they still loved each other, you should give it a read and find out with every delicious, descriptive word. If you’re interested in the battle between the Therians who want to be the dominant species versus the ones who want to get along with humans, this has a great storyline that advances the plot.

However, if you just want to read a really great romantic suspense with lots of sensual wordplay and laugh out loud humor, then this is for you. Plus, there’s a surprise appearance that was awesome and wonderful and made me very happy. Squee for the THIRDS team!!
