After a messy breakup with a lying ex, English teacher Mercy Jones swore off men, especially the edgy ones. Safe, stable and comfy. Those are her catch words for a perfect partner. So why does the new substitute history teacher have to be dangerous, raw, and challenging—on every level? His uncompromising masculinity and questioning mind captivate Mercy, tempting her to risk her heart.
Detective Aidan Shaw is a cynical bastard, trusting nobody outside his family and fellow cops. But when working undercover to eradicate a high school drug network, Aidan meets an intelligent, feisty blonde with knock-out curves. Mercy’s warmth and generous spirit awaken a part of him buried deep for too long.
But how can Aidan remain undercover and not betray the woman he’s come to cherish? As he closes in on the criminals manipulating innocents for profit, the stakes grow ever higher—with deadly consequences.
*This was initially a 29,000 word novella for a Box Set (of which all proceeds went to charity). The updated version will be expanded with new scenes.*
I knew Detective Aidan Shaw was going to give me a run for my money when I realized he was getting his own happily ever after. If you are familiar with Fiona’s Sons of Sydney Series (which you should be because it’s AMAZING), you will recognize Aidan as ONE OF London Shaw’s brothers. London was the sassy heroine who brought Heath Justice to his knees in TEMPTING JUSTICE!
Detective Shaw has trust issues with outsiders, meaning he only trusts his family. Can you blame him when he’s been undercover for so long? His latest assignment puts him in the same vicinity as English Teacher Mercy Jones, who of course, has sworn off men. When they meet, there is an instant attraction, despite their trust and relationship issues, they grow closer over the help they can give one another. But Aidan Shaw or ‘Sean Gallagher’ still has a job to do. Once he clears Mercy of any suspicion, his control snaps and he plans to get her under him ASAP. There’s only one problem, Mercy thinks he is just a substitute History teacher and coach. What happens when she finds out the truth behind the man that she is quickly falling for?
IN HIS CUSTODY, book one in a brand new series by Fiona Archer, was a quick and sexy delight of a read. It was sexy, sweet, with just the right amount of suspense. Aidan Shaw and his ALPHA ways, made me smile the whole way through. Mercy Jones boldness and wit had me convinced that she was the perfect match for our hero. Together, these two were ON FIRE in and out of the bedroom. Fiona Archer always does ALPHA right and I can’t wait to see what she brings us next!
