Midnight Man by Lisa Marie Rice

Midnight Man by Lisa Marie Rice

Book blurb from EC:
Interior decorator Suzanne Barron's new tenant is the most dangerously sexy man she's ever met. Navy Commander John Huntington, a former SEAL (aka 'Midnight Man') works best under cover of darkness. Within hours of meeting him, Suzanne has wild, no-holds barred sex with John, then panics at the depth of her passionate response to such a powerful and dangerous warrior. Suzanne doesn't do sex like that. John is definitely someone she needs to avoid for her own peace of mind. But when killers come for her, Suzanne known she can turn to only one man. John will guard and protect her body. But who will guard and protect her body against John?

I bought this one when it was featured on the front of the EC website as a 10% off deal for being slightly rewritten. I'd heard good things about the author from various places, including Rosario. I'm quite glad I gave this one a try. It's quite good.

John is definitely an alpha male, yet I don't recall him really being an ass. Yes, he wants to protect Suzanne, but his reasons just don't seem as selfish as other alpha-jerks I've read. The romance between Suzanne and John is very hot, yet almost sweet. And although the suspense is there, this focuses much more on the romance. If you're looking for a good erotic romantic suspense with LOTS of romance, I'd highly recommend this one. Now I just have to go read the rest of Rice's books!

OOH, thanks for the recommend. Sounds really fun!
BTW - I noticed you were "thinking" of reading Triad by Lauren Dane. May I give you a little "push" and say READ it! ??? I've read that, and Touch of Fae, and I just won her new one, Sleight of Hand, which I enjoyed immensely!! I like the way she writes, so maybe it's a personal thing. I'd like to think you'd enjoy it too once you read the story. I mean, it IS hot. *giggle*
OK, maybe not giggle but a **pant** :-)

Actually, I have had Triad started since it was on the sidebar, I just put it down and haven't gotten around to finishing it. Hopefully soon. I have a ton of EC paperbacks that I really need to read.

I'm going to have to put her on my TBB list. Now that she is in paperback then I can give her a try. Lately my eyes have been hurting after sitting at the computer too long so reading on a computer is not going to work

Thanks for the review. I have all her Midnight books in my TBR. I really need to read this one soon.

Slightly rewritten? Is this in print? Wonder if it is different than the one I have.

I so second the rec for Rice!

I think the rewritten version is in print, but this was ebook, just changed from the original to make it tighter, I think.
