Claire Parks has been very sick, but she's fine now—just fine—and ready to paint the town red. Well, pink. On her first excursion into the wild world of dating, she nets Bud, a tall, sexy, good-looking lumberjack. She won him fair and square, her prize for not dying. But after a weekend of wild sex, she discovers he's not what she thinks he is.
Undercover police officer Lieutenant Tyler "Bud" Morrison can't believe his eyes. What's a 'princess' doing in a dance club known for its rough trade? She needs rescuing, and rescuing women is what Bud does best. He saw Claire first—finders keepers. After a weekend of the hottest sex he's ever had, he's definitely keeping this one. When trouble comes her way, he pulls out all the stops to protect her. Except Claire doesn't want Bud at her back. She wants him in her bed.
I'm not quite sure how Lisa Marie Rice does it, but she makes heroes that I'd ordinarily not like (definite alpha ones) and makes them seem so real and likeable. Suffice to say, I highly enjoyed this book. I'm not quite sure if I liked it more or less than Midnight Man, but I liked it alot. Even while thinking that Claire's having an awful lot of sex for a recent virgin, I still liked it. It's just an all-around good book. *sigh* I hope she's planning to write lots more. Now I have to read Midnight Angel sometime soon. OOoohhh.....can't wait.
