  "He's everything she craves. She's everything he dreads. "
  Journalist Lana Quinn has a way with hard-hitting news. The story she's uncovered has potential, but she needs the help of her best friend's FBI team. She's been rescued by them, worked with them, and partied with them, but convincing the second in command to believe her theory-that a killer's touch sets off a lethal allergic reaction-is a frustrating challenge.
  Especially since he excites her, body and mind. He's a danger she shouldn't indulge.
  Aidan Burgess is resistant to helping Lana, but not for the reason she thinks. She has a knack for landing herself in trouble, which means she needs protection. Protecting her means staying near her, a journalist, who like all journalists uses whatever-and whomever-it takes to get her story. It's a case he wants to refuse.
  Especially since she lights a fire in his blood. She's a danger he can't afford.
  As Lana follows up on lead after deadly lead, learning to trust and rely on each other becomes their only lifesaving hope. If their pride doesn't become their final pitfall.
  Warning: This title contains a grudge-holding hero who gives "kiss my ass" new meaning, a heroine out to prove herself, and a danger that dares them to trust.
  A Killing Touch was a great romantic suspense novel. I went into the novel thinking I knew who the killer was, but then I ended up changing my mind a few times throughout the book. As for the romance part, Nikki Duncan sure knows passion! Lana and Aidan burn up the pages with their own brand of highly volatile passion! This couple really get at each other, in both good and bad ways, but the same passion that causes them to argue also leads to a lot of steamy reading!
  Going into the book you know that Lana and Aidan have hooked up previously, but have been avoiding a repeat, so there isn't the gradual getting to know each other beforehand that you typically see. So from the first pages there is already attraction sizzling between them.
  Lana is a honest and caring journalist, and I loved what a strong woman she was. No weak-willed heroines in this book, that is for sure. She knows her mind, respects herself and others, and is filled with integrity. Aidan has been burned by a reporter before and projects some of his emotional baggage onto Lana. Therein lies the root of most of their personal struggles, but don't let me make this sound like he's not a great hero, because he is. He's brave, smart, caring although he tries to hide it, and sexy as hell.
  Although A Killing Touch is the fourth book in the Sensory Ops Series, it can easily be read as a standalone if you choose. You won't be lost if you hop in now, but you're going to want to read about the other characters too once you read this one, so I recommend reading them in order. Overall, a really good read featuring a fast-paced storyline, top-notch romance, and memorable characters.
