Product Description

Smooth, seductive and savage: Lee Christine returns to the dark, criminal underbelly of Sydney with her follow-up toIn Safe Hands.

Legal secretary Josephine Valenti has no idea why a notorious bikie president would be contacting her, but when he is murdered in front of her eyes, she knows that she is in very deep trouble. Fleeing to her home, she's intercepted by Nate Hunter, a man she used to know and lust after…a man she used to care about.

However, Nate has changed. His leathers and his bike tell of a lifestyle that Josie can't begin to accept or understand. His is a life of drugs, money laundering and prostitution.

But all is not what it seems, and Josie must fight harder than she ever has before — for the truth, for what's right, and, ultimately, for the man who still has a hold of her heart.

Praise for IN SAFE ARMS:

‘The story is very good and unfolds nicely with clever pacing and plenty of action... 8/10’ — 1 Girl... 2 Many Books

I have just finished a Lee Christine weekend 'marathon' with In Safe Hands, and In Safe Arms, in about three days. I was lucky enough to win these books in a recent Australia Day promotion here Down Under, and these were the first of Lee's books I've read.
I liked both books - is the short answer - but of the two, I definitely preferred In Safe Arms. This is about Josie (21 year old PA [and witness to a gangland murder]) and Nate (30), an undercover cop. I can't pinpoint exactly why, but for me the conflict, emotion & the chemistry between Josie and Nate was ever so slightly more enjoyable than that of Allegra & Luke in the first book. Don't let any sense of whether you've read one or both put you off, as both books can certainly be read stand-alone.
Lee Christine writes sizzling sex scenes... but never sex for the sake of it. I always felt the sensual scenes in this book elevated the story to a new high, and continued to develop the relationship between Josie and Nate.
I'm a bit of a fan of biker books. In fact, this is probably the only reason I prefer the second book to its predecessor. I love the TV series Sons Of Anarchy, and the bikie scenes in the book, particularly Nate's initiation, worked very well for me.
I'm over the moon to have won these books in the competition, and absolutely recommend them to readers who enjoy sizzling, emotional sex scenes in the romantic suspense genre.

5.0 out of 5 stars Love, Love, Love this Book. 9 March 2014
By Jess - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition Verified Purchase
Everyone knows that I loved Lee Christine’s first novel, In Safe Hands, which was released in late 2012. But if I loved the first book, then this novel is indescribable. Words just can’t do it justice; but for the sake of this review, I’ll try my best. Though I should warn you here that I read this entire novel in one sitting, in the middle of a heat wave (without air conditioning), I simply just couldn’t put it down, that’s just how great it is.

In Safe Arms is the follow up narrative to Lee’s successful début novel In Safe Hands. Featuring many of the same characters, and a bunch of new ones as well, it’s a fast paced high action criminal suspense narrative, with an unlikely romance thrown in as well. Beautifully written and extremely well crafted, this novel is sure to place Lee Christine on many readers MUST watch list, and for good reason too.

Having witnessed a murder via Skype, Josie’s life is in danger. Even more so when the man she thought she recognised on screen, runs her off the road and takes her captive. Naturally freaked out, she tries to battle her way away from her would be attacker, but Nate Jordan’s arms are stronger and his hold more precise. He also just happens to be an undercover cop investigating drugs and money laundering within the Bikie Gangs in Sydney. While being with Nate might be the only thing keeping her alive, is it the right thing for Josie’s heart and her emotions? This is after all a man who once turned her down because of her age. A man she still has feelings for despite her current predicament and his bad ass demeanour.

In Safe Arms is one hell of a ride from start to finish. It’s a quick and highly entertaining read that is sure to leave you wanting more. Lee Christine has gone to great lengths to create a believable and honest narrative that leaps of the page. So much so, that whilst reading I often forgot what I was doing, for the imagery is so clear and the characters larger than life that is was though I was watching the drama played out before me on the big screen. In many ways I was.

If there is once thing that Lee Christine excels at, it is creating strong minded, individualist characters who drive the plot through their motives and emotions. It was this aspect of Lee Christine’s writing that so endeared me to her characterisation of Allegra and Luke in her first novel, and once again with Josie and Nate in this narrative. With characters larger than life and tangible emotions, it seems almost too easy for Lee Christine to create the novel around the pair of characters, who then predict and drive the narrative at their own pace. All of which creates a seamless narrative flow and produces larger than life characters. What’s more, it was great to see the inclusion of the much loved characters of Allegra and Luke within this story, so that past readers get to see how their happily ever after is working out for them. In many ways these two characters help to create an extra level and dimension to the story, expanding upon Nate’s exclusive hide away and his ugly underworld persona and livelihood.

My biggest issue with this story perhaps stemmed from the romance element of the narrative between naive twenty year old Josie, and worldly, undercover, bad boy Nate who just happens to be in this thirties. With something like a twelve year gap between the two, I found this side of the story harder to grasp initially and often wondered what the two possibly saw in each other.And then in dawned on me, that like real life, love doesn’t come with an a specific age bracket in mind, and we simply love who we love. Helping me to get over this small road bump, was the way in which Lee Christine, balanced out the characters responses, with both characters having issues with their feelings towards each other. Nate knew it was wrong to love someone that little bit too young for him, and he tried to stop himself from hurting her, from being the older man, but in the end love just is. And that’s just how life is. So I got over that.What I couldn’t fault in this area however was the chemistry between the two leading characters. Their witty banter, and cunning remarks made the story all that more enjoyable, whilst also bringing the pair closer and heightening the story’ tensions and suspense. Tension, I might add, that is cleverly created and sustained throughout the novel and ultimately brought to a satisfying crescendo in all aspects of the story.

In short, In Safe Arms is a gripping, fast paced and highly entertaining story that is bound to leave you wanting more.

In Safe Arms firmly cements Lee Christine as a force to be reckoned with. I’m sure we will see big things from her in the future.

And on a side note, look at that cover! I may have fallen in love with that guy’s smile and bad boy appearance. Josie’s not the only one who can dream :)

5.0 out of 5 stars Gritty and suspenseful! 4 January 2014
By Brenda Telford - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition Verified Purchase
Never had she felt so terrified! Josie Valenti had just witnessed a murder via skype; the worst part was, she was sure she recognised one of the perpetrators. Shaking with shock as she reported the incident, she was told by the police operator to come straight in to the station. But as she was leaving her parents’ home she was run off the road and taken captive by none other than Nate Hunter, whom she hadn’t seen in at least two years…

Frightened for her life, Josie didn’t know what to do. It seemed that all of a sudden she was deeply involved with the bikie scene in Sydney, the drugs and prostitution, the money laundering – was her life about to end a few days before her 21st birthday? Or was Nate not as he seemed?

I absolutely loved this book! The gritty suspense, the fast pace, everything was geared to keep the pages turning. This is my second novel by Lee Christine, and I’ve thoroughly enjoyed both. Even though it’s classed as romantic suspense, in my opinion it’s more suspense than romance! A very talented writer, Lee Christine is another Australian author on my watch list, and one I highly recommend!

I remember reading In Safe Hands back in 2012 and immediately falling in love with both Lee Christine's literary voice and the characters of the Grace and Poole legal firm.

In Safe Arms is no disappointment either and is easily as gripping and thrilling as it's predecessor, immediately hooking me from the opening chapter and keeping me engrossed to the final page.

I can't wait to see what Lee Christine does next. It's always great to see a new and promising writer on the rise!
4.0 out of 5 stars Nice read 6 August 2014

Everything seemed to be timed perfectly in this book. Nothing happened in the relationship too fast, and the author also didn't wait until the end of the book for the connection. Perfectly timed. The storyline was very interesting, and even includes a little twist toward the end. You will not be disappointed. If you are looking for something light hearted with an easy storyline, this is the one.

This is a fantastic follow up to Lee Christine's debut novel 'In Safe Hands'. Every bit as exciting and suspenseful as the first book, it has a great suspense story with some truly unexpected twists, as well as a hot budding romance between the engaging leads.
Definitely one to read!
