about

Reece Wilde put everything in his life on the backburner to protect his brothers and their struggling company, Wilde Security. With a major contract on the line, Reece can't afford any mistakes...like getting caught in a red-hot, X-rated moment with wild child Shelby Bremer, who's more trouble than he can handle. Now he's being blackmailed.

Shelby's mile-long impulsive streak gets her in more trouble than she'd like to admit. Between her sister's wedding, her coffee shop set on fire, and getting down and dirty with the groom's brother, things are definitely coming off the rails. With both their careers and their safety on the line, Reece is determined to keep them both safe...even if it means a Vegas-style shotgun wedding.

But gambling on a wild card-and a wild soul-is risky...and sometimes, it can get a guy killed.

Each book in the Wilde Security series is a standalone story that can be enjoyed out of order.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Wilde Times! I loved the fast pace of Wilde at Heart, the unexpected pieces of the plot, the forbidden romance, and the great mix of characters. Shelby is a heroine who is definitely not given enough credit in her life. She's insecure but hides it very well behind a veil of sassiness. Shelby has not had an easy time in life, but she perseveres and does her best to move forward from a past filled with more secrets than she is willing to share. She's impulsive and she is hopeful, but my heart goes out to that hidden side of her that feels like no one can love her. Reece is the responsible, put everyone else first Wilde brother. Looking out for his brother's soon to be sister in law Shelby soon turns into a lot more than he anticipated. From the chemistry between them to the danger they find themselves in, soon Reese and Shelby are connected in many ways. They tell each other it's only temporary, but even as danger lurks closer and secrets stay safe, they each find themselves feeling way more than they expected to. Trying to stay safe and finding out who is responsible for the threats and danger stalking them is one thing, but keeping their hearts safe is another thing. Can they do it? And if they can will Shelby's secrets be the undoing of what's only just begun? I liked both of these main characters. I liked how they felt together and how they boosted each other up without even trying to. I really felt hopeful for them, but at the same time I was nervous about the secrets Shelby was keeping. Tonya reveals just enough at just the right times, and the suspense, mystery and romance are a great mix in Wilde at Heart. I was intrigued and couldn't wait to find everything out, and find out what would happen. I liked how Tonya worked the plot, how the characters had to work for what they really wanted, and how Shelby and Reese unwittingly helped each other do this. I saw a lot of growth in these two characters through Wilde at Heart, it was really sweet to see. I didn't really care for Shelby's sister Eva who is a significant secondary characters, but this only added more realism to the feelings that Tonya manages to evoke in Wilde at Heart. I liked the Wilde brothers, their interactions, and the background that brought them to where they are today and where they are headed. Full of surprises, intrigue, heat, and suspense, I'd recommend Wilde at Heart to any romantic suspense reader.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Reece meets his match in Shelby! This was a wonderful opposites attract story with a healthy dose of action, humour and sex to round out the tale. It's the third in the Wilde Security series featuring 5 brothers, this one being about Reece, the uptight controlling one, trying to keep his brothers' security company and his own company DMV solvent. He's undeniably attracted to Shelby, his brother's wife's sister, but she's a wild card of her own, flighty, marching to the beat of her own drum. A marriage of convenience between them seems to be the answer to both their problems - hers a money one (or so she says) and his, the person trying to blackmail him with compromising pictures of him and Shelby when he's trying to get a local businessman to invest in his company, one who wouldn't like his sexual shenanigans. If their relationship is legit, the blackmail threat will be meaningless. But as things get serious between them, so do the threats to their lives because Shelby is keeping secrets too - something's got to give, and it's only a matter of time before Reece will have to choose between business or love. I really enjoyed both of these characters. Reece is a calm, controlled workaholic but Shelby just gets under his skin and the sexual attraction between them leads to some steamy scenes, right from the start of the story. Shelby on the other hand is known for being not always that smart, making bad choices (usually emotional ones) and not looking before she leaps. She's the tatooed, hair dyed bohemian and she's got secrets and reasons for doing the things she does, but can't risk sharing them with Reece and putting him in danger (though it's already too late for that). Between blackmail, arson and family disagreements, the action moves along at a swift pace as does the romance. There were some surprising twists and turns that I didn't see coming and it's always fun to be caught off guard with some eyebrow raising scenes. Reece's brothers are a key part of the story, the relationships between them all complex and interesting (and quite humourous most of the time). There are some great teasers to two more of the brother's stories, just enough to want them at the top of your to-read list. The whole thing worked for me. 4 stars.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Writing, as usual! Their parents' death twenty years earlier forced fifteen year old Reece Wilde and his elder brother to step up and take on the task of providing for and raising their younger brothers to avoid them going into foster care. Reece has remained stuck in that role all these years and on the verge of securing a lucrative partnership, he cannot afford even a whiff of scandal. Which is exactly what Shelby Bremer would bring to his life. Shelby is his sister-in-law's younger sister but she's also a trouble magnet with her wild ways and unconventional style and the very opposite of the kind of woman he needs, but Reece can't stay away from her to save his life. When potentially damaging video and pictures of them in compromising positions surface, Reece faces the choice of giving into blackmail or losing everything he's worked for. Shelby's impulsive nature means that she hasn't always made the best decisions but she's determined to show that she's matured beyond all of that. However, she can't seem to shake off her past and finding herself in a tough spot, she decides a quickie marriage to Reece would be the solution to both their problems. Reece knows that Shelby has a lot of secrets that may be damaging to him, but he can't stop himself from coming to her rescue, even if it means marrying her to keep her safe. The only thing is that their marriage may have created more problems than it solved because trouble seems to be closing in on them from all sides and with so many possible suspects, it's hard to figure out who the bad guys are. Their intense physical attraction to each other as well as Shelby's secrets and the danger they face have them teetering on the edge of disaster. Reece is exactly what I imagined. The nerd in a family of rambunctious boys, everything he's done has been with the goal of taking care of his family. So much so that he neglected even his personal and social life to focus on that goal. For the first time in his life, he meets a woman who tempts him away from what has driven his all choices but knowing that she's in his life temporarily, can he take that chance? Shelby's childhood wasn't exactly an ideal one and she made her fair share of mistakes growing up but she turned it all around with hard work and determination. While she and Reece are opposites in every way that counts, they are very perfect for each other. Shelby brings color and lightness into Reece's life and makes him sit up and enjoy it and Reece grounds her, accepts her and her colorful style (although not initially) and encourages her to be herself. They have become my favorite couple in the series so far. One reason why I love this series is the bond the brothers share and the fact that they are always there for each other when needed, no questions asked. WILDE AT HEART was worth the wait! Ms. Burrows blends passion, intrigue, danger and suspense into a fast paced, thrilling and absolutely enjoyable read. I had so much fun reading this. Reece and Shelby made me laugh and cringe at their funny and embarrassing moments and I am looking forward to the rest of the series, just please don't take so long to get the next book out!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Loved it Adored this book!! I love a great book with a sexy geek hero and Reece is perfection! I'm ashamed to say I haven't read anything by this author before, although the first book in this series has been sitting on my kindle forever. After reading this one, I will definitely be going back and reading every book she has!! This is the third book in the series but reading it stand alone works fine. Reece Wilde has lived his life working hard to make sure his brothers have everything they would ever need or want. After the loss of their parents, it was his one goal. Now though, Wilde Security is struggling and he's depending on a big contract to set everything right. Nothing in his life can go wrong if he wants this deal to go through. Easier said then done though when the sexy as hell but one big ball of trouble Shelby Bremer is anywhere around. Now if he could just stay away..... I definitely recommend this one!!

Rated 4 out of 5 by from A Smart & Sexy Romantic Suspense ** Provided by Publisher in Exchange for an Honest Review ** -- MY THOUGHTS > Judging a Book by it's Cover: A well-dressed man, looking as though the weight of the world rests on his shoulders. Stormy and turbulent background could be an indicator to the mood of the overall setting. Looking Deeper: Third-person POV. Although this is the third Wilde book in the series, it can be read on it's own. However, it is my opinion that WILDE AT HEART would be more rewarding to read if read in order - since the characters are so tightly connected. Reece: Second oldest Wilde brother. Computer Geek, non-athletic. Odd-man out, even in his own family. Disciplined, controlled, focused. Determined to do what it takes to make sure he and his brothers never have to struggle again. Shelby: Labeled a trouble-maker, a jinx, irresponsible, a wild child. No one knows the dark secrets she hides. Even when she means well, things tend to run amok. She's sacrificed more than anyone knows and she hides her soul-shattering heartache behind her aloof and colorful persona. Each have past demons, but when the past threatens their future, wedding bells present the perfect solution. Sort of. Both leads are perfectly flawed individuals that make an entertaining couple. The secondary characters mostly consisted of the brothers and past characters, and some minor cross-over with HORNET. The dialogue is fresh, fun, smart, sassy and believable. The plot is well-layered and dynamic, with an even and smooth blend of suspense and romance. There are a few conflicts that are met in an efficient manner, but more often than not, their ways of dealing with conflicts were less than ideal. Predictability was moderate. I pegged her bad guy early on, but a secondary bad guy facing Reece was not foreseen. The conclusion of this story is solid, but leaves plenty of openings for Vaughn and Greer to begin their books. Overall, I was pleased with the book and thought it made a great addition to the Wilde brothers' books. I look forward to learning what's happening with Greer and discovering what'll happen when Vaughn finds Lark, which we all know will be inevitable. ** Side note: I love Poe and really wish he had the chance to shine more. This was truly his opportunity to prove himself to be something amazing, especially with how smart the breed is. ------------------------------------------------------------------------- Heat Level: 4.25- [R] ~ Score: 4.3 ~ Stars: 4 -------------------------------------------------------------------------

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Opposites do attract!!! Reese Wilde wanted his sister-in-law's sister, Shelby Bremer. They are complete opposites in every way but there's just something about her. She's a trouble magnet. Wherever Shelby is, trouble is sure to find her. And sure enough, when she starts to fool round with Reese Wilde, things start happening. First it was the blackmail. They thought marriage would be the best way to thwart the blackmail but you know what they say about good intentions and that was just the beginning. Reese is the nerdy reclusive one of the Wilde brothers. He's no slouch in the looks and body department but he's always been more interested in making sure his brothers are financially stable. Shelby is trouble with the T! I really feel sorry for her because everyone paints her as a huge screwup that nobody wants to be around. She does have reasons for most the stuff she does even though she can't tell anyone. I can't wait to read more of the series. Received a copy via NetGalley in exchange for an honest review.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Wilde at Heart In order to protect his brothers and their struggling company Reece Wilde makes a bargain with wild child Shelby Bremer but gambling on a wild card is risky and sometimes it can get a guy killed in this exciting romantic suspense. Shelby’s impulsive streak gets her in trouble every time and things are definitely coming off the rails and the reader can’t help but get caught up in all the excitement of this wild romance. The chemistry is hot and the sex scenes are scorching and wild but this romance is chock full of secrets, emotional issues and outside influences that keep the romance teetering on the edge of disaster every step of the way. The characters are strong and demand the reader’s attention from the very beginning while the fast paced, smooth flowing plot thrills readers with lots of suspense, excitement and romance. Excitement builds as Reece and Shelby give in to temptation and things snowball into chaos and confusion especially since Reece and Shelby are both conflicted about building a relationship and with blackmail and fires around every corner, tension continuously builds throughout the story keeping the readers on the edge of their seat with anticipation. The well written scenes and details capture the imagination and bring the story to life while the exhilarating and intriguing events draw the reader in and ensure that there is never a dull moment. Reece and Shelby captured my heart and I was completely caught up in their story and while they are completely opposite in personalities they make a great couple. I haven’t read the Previous Wilde brothers’ books but if they are anything like this one then I have to say that I have missed out on quite a bit of intrigue and excitement and did I mention that they are strike me as being sexy and yummy and I can’t wait to get me another taste of Wilde.
