One night of passion…
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.

This was a really nice surprise. This is a new author for me and I loved her writing style.

I saw this book by way of author Laura Kaye's book review. I checked it out. Normally, I do not like covers with faces. I like to imagine what the characters look like based on the author's descriptions. But the inte... ...more
I don't read very much hetero romance. It's not a slam against the genre, it's just that I'm gay and write m/m romance, so I tend to stick to my area of expertise, shall we say?
But this book may have changed all that.
I'm a sucker for a good suspense thriller, and Robin Covington dishes one hellu... ...more
I love a ‘One Night Stand’ that isn’t. Ms. Covington has carefully crafted a sensual blend of hot sexual attraction with old fashion small town life. Although I didn’t find anything unexpected between the pages, each one was worth spending time reading.
This is an author to watch.

WOW what a great book. I love when I get immersed into the book and feel the characters in the first chapter. I loved Detective Jackson Cantrell (Jack) and Dr. Michaela Roarke (everyone calls he Dr Mike). When the book started I have to say the main reason I liked it was Michaela, she was the agg... ...more
What to say about Kayla and Jackson? :)
I miss them already :D

But this book wasn't just about their... ...more
Actually, I give this a 4.5 rating (and the sex scenes at least a 6 because you can feel the heat, smell the sweat but their inclusion is neither contrived nor gratuitous.)
Jack and Michaela are sufficiently believable that if you reached out to touch them their skin would depress beneath your fin... ...more
I'm glad I came back to read #1 after having read #3 first. The story was interesting, the characters were interesting. I really loved it when he thought he'd been a random guy at the hotel, but she told him that she hadn't gone to the hotel looking for a guy. That when she saw him, she felt like... ...more
This is only my second book by Robin Covington and she once again proves she's got talent! I thoroughly enjoyed this! It was a sweet and sexy book with a side of a stalker thrown in.

Super easy read. Nice and steamy. I'd like to read more about Teague and the other guys....Jack was awesome and I loved him with the guys. Hope to read more from this author. ...more
A super delicious, quick, suspenseful page-turner. Highly recommended! ...more
Small town living never sounded so good until I finished reading this story! This might be fiction, but I wouldn't mind at all if the characters of Elliott, Virginia were real – especially “The Boys”. From the first page it became apparent that Jackson and Michaela were characters that I wanted t... ...more
