Orphaned at nine, Dean "Havoc" Conor has grown into a tough-as-nails extreme fighter happy to live a solitary life. When he receives a letter from his two little sisters, who he hasn't seen in the twenty years since their parents died, Dean reluctantly decides to honor their request and return home to Harmony, Ky. Once there, he finds that the aunt who raised his sisters has squandered most of their inheritance and that one of his sisters, Cam, is engaged to a sleaze named Roger. He also meets Cam's best friend, Eve Lavon, an opinionated beauty who already has the commitment-phobic Dean figured out. However, if Dean's going to drive off Roger and figure out why someone in Harmony is trying to kill him, he'll need Eve's help—and he'll have to confront his growing feelings for her. More interesting, though, is Dean's struggle to become the family man his sisters need, a transformation that Foster executes with skill, elevating the tight if typical romance plot with convincing, heartfelt family drama.

Spicy, saucy salad
Lori Foster is known for spectacular, sizzling, singe-your-fingers erotic romance, but she is so very popular because she knows that sexy must also be carefully crafted and intelligentthe power here is the depth of story around those love scenes. In Causing Havoc, extreme fighter Dean Conor is drawn back to the hometown he was torn from when he was eight years old, thanks to a letter his long-lost sister writes to him. Once he's back home, the wandering "Havoc" suddenly finds himself needed and hated in equal portions. He's given a chance to be a hero in real life, rather than just in the ringdoes he have what it takes to live up to all those expectations? Havoc also finds himself being drawn into a spicy relationship with his sister's best friend, Eve Lavon, a free spirit with her own ideas of what should be. This is very much the hero's story, irresistibly saucy and well written.
