All around him, Brody ‘Egghead’ Evans’ Trident Security teammates have fallen in love and gotten their happily ever after. Ironically, they had always thought the charismatic Dominant would be the first one to fall—not the last. While helping his boss’s fiancĂ©e find a new bakery for their wedding cake, he finds himself drooling—not over the delicious confections, but the sweet baker who’d created them.

The lone survivor, Francine ‘Fancy’ Maguire’s world was destroyed when her husband and unborn baby perished in a horrific car accident. Three years later, she is finally shedding the dark shroud she was existing under and starting to live once more. When a handsome customer takes an interest in her, he sparks something deep within her that she never expected to feel again. But will she dare to give love another try?

With a killer on the loose and an unknown vandal targeting Fancy’s business, Brody finds plenty of reasons to keep her close. Can he break through the steel barrier she has wrapped around her heart? Or will he lose her before he can convince her to take a second chance on love?

Brody loves women, all women. But he is ready for one to call his own. And when a visit to Fancy’s bakery places her in his path, he thinks he may have found the woman for him. But can he protect her from the danger that surrounds her?
Tickle His Fancy by Samantha A. Cole is sixth in the Trident Security series. I love this series and was glad to see Brody was getting his shot at happily ever after. You knew that even though Brody was a notorious flirt, when he found his one he would be all in and Ms. Cole did not disappoint. I loved his patience with Fancy. She hasn’t dated or even thought of a man romantically since her husband died but she is close to being ready. Brody becomes her friend first and slips under her radar into being something more. I loved how he made her laugh and regain joy in her life even as she fed his voracious sweet tooth. Ms. Cole allowed Fancy the time to realize the type of man Brody is. He protected Fancy but appreciated her strength. I enjoyed seeing Fancy blossom under Brody’s care. He allowed her the time as well as the respect of all that made her into the woman he was coming to love. This is a wonderful addition to this series. Ms. Cole allowed Brody and Fancy the time to grow into an intimate relationship. This story is full of laughter, joy and hope. I loved seeing characters I had grown to love appreciate the people in their lives. Ms. Cole gave me a well written, well developed and enjoyable read. And I for one can’t wait to see where she will take us next.
