Lucifer's Sin is the first book in the Walker Security Lucifer's Trilogy. Be forewarned....this book ends on a cliffhanger. Luke "Lucifer" Remmington has had a hard life. Most people know him as Lucifer, except for Ana Banks, the CIA agent and ex-fiance that he is still in love with. When Lucifer is warned that someone from the past is going to kill Ana, he quickly jumps into action to try and save her. It's been six long years but she is still the most important thing in his world. Luckily, Lucifer gets there in the nick of time but he has an even harder job trying to convince her to go on the run with him. As far as Lucifer is concerned, there are very few people he trusts when it comes to Ana's safety. Enter his work colleagues from Walker Security. They will do anything to help one of their own and that extends to Ana since she means so much to Lucifer. For now Ana is safe but she is conflicted being with Luke again. Ana does still love him but she just can't get over what he did six years ago. As Ana and Luke start to learn about things from the past, the both realize that they may have been wrong about certain parts. Together, with the help of Walker Security, Lucifer and Ana must find a certain package within five days or lives will be lost. I really love the start of this new series. Lisa Renee Jones always brings such great suspense into her romance stories and I was hooked on page one! I really love both Ana and Luke. Because of things from both of their pasts, they are "take to prisoners" type of people and they really were made for each other. As these two spend more time together, they are reminded of all the reasons they were in love to begin with. It was too bad that life got in the way of that love and hopefully by the end of the trilogy, they will be even better than they once were.

LUCIFER’S SIN is the first instalment in Lisa Renee Jones’ contemporary, adult LUCIFER’S erotic, romantic suspense trilogy-a part of the author’s WALKER SECURITY series. This is Walker Security specialist Luke ‘Lucifer’ Remington, and FBI Agent Ana Banks’ story line. Told from dual first person perspectives (Lucifer and Ana) using present day and memories from the past, LUCIFER’S SIN follows in the wake of the murder of a former member of Luke Remington’s special forces team. Six years earlier Luke Remington met and fell in love with FBI Agent Ana Banks but life, death, betrayal and vengeance pushed Luke out of Ana’s life, and in the two years since they have been apart, Ana struggles to accept what happened and why. When Luke gets word that he and Ana, as well as several members of his original team are part of a hit list, Luke and the team from Walker Security go in search of the woman he loves. Enter Ana Banks, a woman who battles between head and heart knowing the man that she once loved is the man that betrayed her heart and soul. As Luke and Ana go on the hunt for the truth, the team begins to suspect a mole in the Agency, someone close to our story line heroine. What ensues is the rebuilding romance and relationship between Lucifer and Ana, and the fall-out as Lucifer and Ana are targeted, along with the members of the Walker Security Team. Two years earlier greed was the impetus behind betrayal and murder, and Lucifer Remington was caught in the middle. His team duped and fooled by one of their own, Luke had no choice but to take down the man responsible. Fast forward to present day, Lucifer and several members of his original team, find themselves the target of an unknown source, a source that is also targeting the woman Lucifer loves. Ana Banks struggles to forgive the man that destroyed her life but everyone Ana’s loves is dead or dying, and our heroine is next on the list of for sins of the past. The relationship between Ana and Lucifer is one of second chances; a relationship destroyed by the betrayal of someone close, a personal betrayal that forced Ana to push Lucifer out of her life. Luke aka Lucifer Remington never stopped loving our story line heroine but a series of long buried lies, and heart breaking secrets were met with denial and the ultimate betrayal. Their rekindling romance is passionate and intense but Luke Remington struggles to forgive our heroine for sins of the past. We are reintroduced to several members of the Walker Security Team: Savage and Adam, as well as Blake Savage (via phone). The requisite evil has many faces. LUCIFER’S SIN is a story of betrayal and vengeance; power and greed; family and friendships, relationships and love. The fast paced premise is intriguing and captivating; the romance is seductive and energetic; the characters are charismatic, determined, and emotionally wounded. LUCIFER’S SIN ends on a cliff hanger-you have been warned.
Oh my gosh!!! This book has just ricocheted to the top of my favorite LJR books ever! Lucifer is the type of hero that I can really get behind. He’s fierce, protective, loyal but inside his heart is wounded and the possibility of it ever being healed is nil. I loved watching him interact with his coworkers as well as Ana. While he is determined to keep her safe, he also respects her abilities. I wasn’t sure how I was going to feel about Ana. I’m not a big fan of kicka** heroines as they often are too rough and gruff. Ana, however, was more than capable of taking care of business, while allowing her heart to feel. She had a softer side and while it took some time to start to see it, this author created her in a way that I was soon connecting with her as my heart hurt for her loss. Lucifer and Ana set the page on fire when they allow themselves to reach out to each other. Unfortunately, they have some serious baggage from their combined past. How does a couple even attempt to overcome this kind of issue? The angst and turmoil starts pretty high and I could not stop reading until the last page. And then BAM! Literally. The cliffhanger I knew was coming but had no idea it was going to dangle me off the edge like that!
