BlurbIn the steamy world of bestselling romance author Virna DePaul, there are bad boys and good girls on both sides of the law. And when they mix, it’s always an explosive combination. Now the three novellas of her contemporary Red-Hot Cops series are available together in this eBook anthology:
COPPING TO IT
Though Claire Fullerton, a respected journalist, isn’t afraid to walk on the wild side, she’s terrified that unleashing her inner vixen will expose her to getting hurt. But when Claire is captured by a notorious gang of bikers, she recognizes a friendly face from her darkest fantasies: undercover cop Ty Williamson, who has managed to infiltrate the gang to bring them down from the inside. Now Ty’s determined to bind Claire to him and prove that he wants all of her: the good with the bad. In fact, the badder she is, the better they’ll be—together.
People used to call her Sure-Thing-Sarah, but the only thing Sarah Larson’s sure about these days is the torch she’s carried for undercover cop Luke Anderson. Four years ago, Sarah made the biggest mistake of her life: leaving Luke to marry another cop. Now, a year after her divorce, Luke’s back in her life—ready to convince Sarah that he’s the one when it comes to love. But Sarah has a big fear—that her dangerously possessive ex-husband is out to make sure that her second chance at happiness is destroyed forever.
As a former centerfold, Jenna Mills is a pro at deflecting male attention, and with good reason. A painful past has made her mistrustful of all men—and hell-bent on getting revenge on one in particular. But first she needs help overcoming her fear of physical intimacy. And honorable cop Noah James might just be the perfect place to start. Noah’s used to making a woman feel safe, in bed and out. But when Jenna makes him an indecent proposal, Noah’s willing to give her everything she’s asking for . . . and more.

I fell in love with Virna DePaul's writing when I first read Chosen By Blood--from her Para-Ops Series.
Her writing is fresh, addictive and page turning.
So it was a no brainer for me to sign up to host and review her erotic romance anthology.
The three stories you get in Arrested by Love are all somewhat connected. Each of the heroes (Ty, Luke, and Noah) are seen in the previous stories...Luke appears in Copping To It, and Noah appears in Cop Appeal.
And all three are smoking hot.
Virna creates a passionate and emotional tale where the characters have all been involved in someway in the past with their love interest. So there is no instant falling in love thing going on. And there is some pretty intense emotions as well.
For example, in Copping Attitude, the heroine, Jenna, has been raped. There are no details given--its provided as a back story only. But what she has experienced affects how she interacts with Noah. I think that Noah is the fave of this trilogy of sexy men. He has a very dark and kinky side but is very controlled---which is something that Jenna needs to overcome her past.
Ty, in Copping To It, has had a past relationship with Claire. But Claire thinks her dirty fantasies will scare Ty away. Little does she know that Ty wants Claire to be a very, very, naughty girl.
Luke, in Cop Appeal, has also had a past with Sarah. But fear drove her out of Luke's arms and into another. Now four years after her divorce, Sarah runs into her former lover, only to realize that she has never gotten over him.
After a brutal rape, Jenna is scared to ever become intimate with a man. So she seeks Noah's sexpertise. This Lothario has mad skills and uber control. Something Jenna desperately craves but scares her at the same time (Copping Attitude).
All three stories, with the exception of Copping Attitude, involve some menage sex--so if this ain't your thing? You might want to seek your kink elsewhere.
Arrested By Love final thoughts: Erotic as hell, sensuous, and emotional. A great addition for those who love their romance with a lot of kink will find this a very satisfying read.
