Controlling Interest was a really fun story. We first met Matt Hogan in Off the Record. Now he is a changed man but in need of money to keep his agency afloat. Natalie's father buys in and tells Matt that Natalie is his new partner. There first assignment is to find Yasmine(a pakistani woman) who is on the run from her fiance. Her family has issued a reward for her return. Matt and Natalie make a bet that whoever finds Yasmine first gets the reward and the agency. But as they both move closer to finding her, they discover they have feelings for one another. Where will those feelings lead? Who will find Yasmine first...Matt or Natalie? Or...will it be her dreaded fiance? Join Matt and Natalie on their adventures filled with many twists and turns!

The characters in Controlling Interest were delightful! My interest was held from page one to the close of the book. You get a chance to see Cole and Laural from Off the Record and find out what's going on in their lives.

I loved the book and highly recommend it! I think it's one of Elizabeth White's best. ( )

But her reluctant partner is just as determined to have nothing to do with her---until Natalie makes him an offer he can't refuse! If Matt solves the next case before she does, she will return her share of the company. And the race is on. As two strong personalities compete, mutual attraction grows...while a simple case of a runaway bride threatens to become an international incident.
