Detective Jackson Cantrell never imagined that one night with an irresistible stranger would turn his life upside down. He’s spent years living in the shadows, but Dr. Michaela Roarke awakened a passion inside him he’d buried years ago.
He never expected the woman would turn out to be the governor’s daughter…and his next assignment. The governor blackmails Jackson to secretly watch over Michaela and protect her from a stalker, or kiss his dream job at the FBI good-bye. Swearing to keep things strictly professional, Jackson moves in with Michaela. Too bad his heart can’t keep the same promise.
But when the stalker’s attacks quickly escalate beyond mere photographs to bodily harm, Jackson must race to save Michaela’s life. And he’ll have to figure out how to keep her once she discovers his lie.
One of my Top 5 weaknesses in Romantic heroes is a Southern gentleman. Let me tell you, Jack Cantrell has charm in spades.
After a sultry, one-night stand with Jack, Dr. Michaela Roarke isn’t expecting to see him ever again. Imagine her surprise when she finds herself in need of a security detail thanks to her father– the Governor– hires a team. Guess who the lucky detective is? You guessed it, Jack and his trusty (and equally lusty) sidekick Lucky (who I still contest needs a book of his own).
A steamy, seductive debut romance filled with suspense, believable characters and sharp, tight writing. The dialogue was enjoyable, the scenes flowed and she didn’t spare any… ahem… details. I like reading romances every now and then and I will definitely look forward to reading another of Robin’s novels.
