Party girl. Art thief. All around bad girl. It’s what all the newspapers call socialite and heiress Kate Sparrow. It’s all untrue. Kate’s been set up and she’s following the orders of the FBI to get the real criminal, her father. She’ll have to put up with her sister, the wedding fiasco, and her own fears that someone is after her, trying to stop her to get what she needs to prove her innocence.

Doctor Daniel Collins joins his brothers on a cruise to the wedding of his young cousin. His cousin begs him to keep a close watch on the bride’s sister, Kate. He’s to keep her from ruining the wedding.

Kate doesn’t trust Daniel’s help in her life, but the man’s interference is blocking a few problems. She lets him. After all, he spent a few years in the military and having a friend like Daniel is nice. But when her fears become true, someone is after her, pretending to be in a relationship with the sexy doctor has its benefits. What she hadn’t planned was opening her heart to trusting him. But if she doesn’t open up, she’s going to lose out on far more than her life, she’d lose out on love.

 

Daniel slid into his seat and away from Eric, but his arms remained tense. His brothers wouldn’t like this plan. He didn’t like this plan. “I’m to babysit the spoiled rich princess and keep her away from the cops and the alcohol, this trip.”

He pressed his lips together. He expected his brothers to have an opinion, but silence greeted his ears.

All eyes went back to the door.

His collar grew warmer. Daniel glanced around to stare in the same direction. He assumed Kate Sparrow had stepped into the club.

His eyes scanned the room, and then the crowds parted. He had his first look. Time might have stopped, and he heard his own heartbeat. Brown hair with a bit of a curl, brown eyes, small frame, unusually large breasts for a woman her size, and an energy that took his breath away. He also noted that Kate’s eyes held a gleam, and Daniel’s mouth fell open. Kate Sparrow was the most beautiful woman he’d seen in a long while.

Beauty meant trouble. He turned back to his beer and refused to stare at her.

The pictures in the papers hadn’t done her justice at all. How did they turn that pretty woman into a viper with a camera? His mind raced. Did she have a Jekyll and Hyde personality that came out at night?

 

 

This novel made me laugh! It had suspense, humor,  and lets not forget our romance.  The plot was good however  there were a couple of kinks that need to be worked on. I did enjoy the main characters and what they brought to the story. Kate,  unlike what everyone wants to believe is actually a very sweet an nice person.  But of course it only takes people to ruin that impression.  Daniel was asked to his cousins wedding little did he know it was going to be to act like a babysitter. He is in for a suprises when these two meets because from what he was told she is very different.  Unfortunately she does have difficult decisions to make.   From the beginning the author starts taking you for twists with this story and I did enjoy the continuous , never a dull moment you had with this story. Yes a lot does happen but it is the authors work and im all for a new experience from their point.  If your looking for a romance that keeps you on your toes pick this one up.

He’ll have to turn up the heat in order to melt her heart…

Logan Slade made the biggest mistake of his life eight years ago when he left his high school sweetheart at the altar and reported to the military. Now he’s returned home and ready to do whatever it takes to win her back. But Trixie Frost isn’t the same starry-eyed girl who believed he could do no wrong. Now she’s stronger, independent, and more fascinating than any other woman he’s ever met.

Trixie has spent the last eight years trying to forget Logan while devoting her life to the quirky town of North Pole, Alaska. She’s in a good place, dating a nice man and ready to take the next step in their relationship until Logan walks into her bar and turns her life upside down again.

This sexy, determined, military version of Logan is a bigger threat to her than the boy she’d loved to distraction. She can’t let him chip away at the protective wall of ice erected around her heart. Because there’s no way she’ll be able to put the pieces back a second time.

“I don’t want you here,” Trixie said.

“Too bad,” Logan said. “I’m not leaving.”

“Why are you so adamant about that? I know you, Logan. You leave, remember? It’s what you’re good at.”

“Once. I left once. I’m not leaving again.”

“Your ‘once’ was eight years long.”

“I know. It took me a while to understand what I really wanted. You are what I want.”

“Well, you can’t have me. I’m not available.”

A chill slid over him. “You married to someone else?”

“I don’t have to be with someone to be unavailable,” she finished.
