Secure Desire (Chase Security Series Book 1) by R.L. Dunn
Will Ian and Cassie get their second chance at love, or will her secret destroy them both?
After Navy SEAL Lieutenant Commander Ian Chase’s last brutal tour in Afghanistan, he and his brother resumed control of their private security company and the rest of their international conglomerate, Chase Group. At a charity function, Ian has a chance meeting with art historian Cassiopeia Ellis and is surprised to learn she’s undercover with the FBI. He’s even more drawn to this enigmatic redhead than the first time he met her.
An FBI agent specializing in uncovering stolen art, Cassie is plagued by nightmares and fear surrounding an unfathomable trauma she sustained six years earlier–the same night she originally met Ian Chase. Seeing him again stirs up the feelings she once had for him, along with ghosts from her past. The problem? She’s repressed her memories of the crisis she endured that night.
Cassie’s enemies need to snuff her out before she can remember what happened that fateful night. Can Ian keep Cassie safe from harm, or will her desire to shield him from her past obliterate any chance of a happily ever after together?
The Chase Security Series follows the Chase brothers, Ian and Kieran, and their team of former Navy SEALS and other military officers and is intended for readers 18+ due to adult themes and content. The books can be read as standalones, or you may prefer a chronological reading order as follows:
Book 1: Secure Desire (Ian and Cassie’s story)
Book 2: Secure Again (Martin and Elizabeth’s story)
Book 3: Secure Heart (Julian and Holly’s story)
Book 4: Secure Her (Zach’s story—coming soon!)

Secure Desire: A Chase Group Story by R.L. Dunn – Review by Susan Mowdy

Secure DesireSecure Desire by R.L. Dunn
My rating: 4 of 5 stars

Secure Desire is one action – packed romantic suspense novel. It gives you everything from action, violence, twists and turns, and everything you would want in this genre!

Ian Chase is an Ex Navy SEAL and now head the Chase Group which is a billion dollar security firm. Imagine to his surprise when his brief encounter with a very engaged art historian that he had six years prior suddenly pops back into her life.

Cassiopeia Ellis is no longer engaged and even though she suffers from amnesia, she remembers meeting Ian all those years ago. This is a good thing but it also scares the crap out of her. He has appeared in her life when someone out there wants her dead.

This book had me at the edge of my seat THE WHOLE TIME! It was such a thrilling ride and I can’t wait to dive into book 2!

My rating: 5 of 5 stars

Secure Desire by R. L. Dunn is from the A Chase Group Series. I was drawn in because Cassiopeia, the main female character, has a history of being an art historian. Also, what a fantastic name. Ian is at the head of a private security firm after serving in Afghanistan. The two had met years before and have been brought back together. Ian will do anything to protect Cassiopeia. I was reading to find out how an art historian had gotten herself into so much danger. I really enjoyed the story and the characters and hope to see more of them in future books. This has a little bit of something for anyone who likes a good suspense book.

Secure Desire (A Chase Group Story) by R. L. Dunn

5-stars

Secure Desire has me hooking and sinker. I could not stop reading this magnificently written novel. Cassie is working undercover with her former last name when she is brutally attacked. Ian who had met her earlier on briefly was attracted to her when she showed up at her uncles while he was visiting for security purposes. He realizes how attracted he is to her after a short date before she is attacked. I loved how she fought her emotions and how the attack changed Ian. Cassie’s battle for life in the hospital has me at the edge of my seat. This novel was easy to read and full of excitement. I highly recommend it!

Secure Desire by RL Dunn is a novel belonging to the Chase Group series. This book is fast paced, action packed and a great book to read!
I thought the characters in this book had a great connection between them. They seemed to work really with each other and complimented the other. The story was quite complex, possibly a little too complex at times, but it grabs your attention and does a good job of holding it until the last page. This book is definitely worth your time if this is your genre.

My rating: 4 of 5 stars

Secure Desire by R. L. Dunn is not your typical romance story. R. L. Dunn wrote characters that were believable and lovable. This story takes you on journey with Chase and Cassie. Be prepared because it is a roller coaster ride but it is worth all the emotions that comes along with the story. When you are a soldier like Chase and have some lingering feels about your tour in Afghanistan you everyday life seems so different. Chase came back to get in the security business with his brother and did not expect to run into his love interest, Cassie from 6 years ago. A lot has happened in the six year in both of their lives. Will Chase be able to have a relationship after Afghanistan? Will Cassie want a relationship with Chase? Are there secrets that either one of them does not want them to surface?

Secure Desire: A Chase Group StorySecure Desire: A Chase Group Story by R.L Dunn
My rating: 4 of 5 stars

I must say I am struggling a tad with exactly where or how I want to place this book on a star scale. I have never had the pleasure of reading anything R.L. Dunn prior to Secure Desire so I was completely new all of her writing style. Dunn has one hell of a knack for detailed writing. While I loved that most of the time I felt like I was right there with the characters and in the moment I could have done without some of it sometimes. It felt a tad heavy. Only because I wanted to get to the the point and found myself several times confused in the novel. There is immaculate research done clearly evident as well, but again, I don’t want to feel as if I am in the History Channel.

Bottom line, I adored the story for what it was, and found myself falling in love with Ian and Cassie quickly. I was invested in them from the get-go and was on the edge of my seat wondering how everything was going to turn out for them in the end. Which I must say was quite unpredictable as well! Another fantastic plus. I look forward to checking out more of the Chase Group Stories and whatever else is available or will be to come from R.L. Dunn.
