He can fight anything…except his need for her.

Until her new job starts in September, buttoned-up elementary school teacher Laurel Harris is at loose ends and in need of cash. Fortunately her best friend’s older brother is a single dad and desperately needs a nanny. Or so she’s told. She doesn’t anticipate him being such a menacing, muscled, and undeniably gorgeous man…or that he has zero interest in hiring a nanny.

Micah Crane will do right by his young daughter, no matter the cost. And right now, that cost is juggling parenthood with long hours at his bar and working as an enforcer for a notorious crime boss. He doesn’t need another complication in his life, but the sweet, frustratingly opinionated little blonde hell-bent on caring for his daughter stirs his blood like no woman ever has.

All it takes is a moment of weakness to ignite the lust blazing between them. A moment that will unravel their self-control and unleash all of Micah’s darkest secrets…

Each book in the Boston Alibi series is a standalone story that can be enjoyed out of order.

When Entangled asked me to write this book, I didn't realize how much I would end up connecting with the hero, Micah Crane. Not because he is a fighter (I'm actually the calmest person you'll probably ever meet), but because of the sheer desperation to do right by the one thing he holds dearest to h ...more

The story of single father, Micha Crane, literally fighting for his life and that of his young daughter, Shea, as an enforcer for the mob on the mean streets of Boston, is enough to make any reader sit up and take notice.

Great story and Micah is over the top. He needs a nanny for his child, enter Laurel who needs the money until school starts in the fall. Meanwhile Micah is juggling his bar and his little side job as an enforcer. Micah scares the heck of of Laurel, his responses at times make me wanna shake him. But ...more

I loved this one! I thought the story was fresh and unique and while Micah was a bit of a jerk, I'm not sure the story would be believable if he were any other way. It's a quick easy read that once I started, I had to finish! A bit on the mellow side for the sexy times we've come to expect in Brazen ...more

Micah....gosh you end up feeling so much for him. You want to hate him (often), you want to love him and you even want to laugh at him.

Micah is a man who basically questions everything, and Laurel the girl is just adorable, "Laurel spun from the opened— and now full— pantry cupboard. “Oh,” she said, sounding surprised. “Um…food?

Good read

Interesting storyline. Hot dad, pretty nanny, hot sex, falling in love. It kept my interest but seemed a little rushed at the end and too easy to walk away from being an enforcer. ...more

Sweet...very sweet...good girl meets surly co-owner of a seedy bar and mob enforcer--and single dad of a six-year-old future princess...

What do you get when you put a single dad and crime syndicate enforcer with a quiet school teacher who needs a temporary job? You get enough sparks to light up stadium and a story that will have you glued to the pages till you finish with a big fat goofy grin.

You have to fall in love with Micah Crane. Anyone that can demonstrate the love that he has for his little girl can’t be all bad. Even if he is a messed up jerk whose second job is an enforcer, beating up late payers to a crime boss. Laurel Harris is of the same opinion as me. S ...more

Man, how I love me some Micah Crane.

What I loved about this book is that it was pretty much, realistic.

This isn't a super complex book/plot to read. It's straightforward, sexy hot and fun! Micah is a big tough badass, but I adored him from the start.
