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.

A Night of Southern Comfort was the first book in the Boys are Back In Town Series by Robin Covington and I really enjoyed it. This is my first taste of Robin Covington and I really liked her writing style. Jack our hero was very very sexy. He had so much southern charm. He was a ex marine and a det ...more

I never gush about a book unless I really, really love it.

And boy, did I love this book!

I'm staggered that it's Robin Covington's debut novel...talking about setting the bar high!

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 intensi ...more

This was a really nice surprise. This is a new author for me and I loved her writing style. The Hero was dreamy and the heroine didn't get on my last nerve (although I really wish she wasn't sooooo perfect - she's a doctor and she looks like Gweynth Paltrow!?!) Oh well, I still had a great time and ...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 helluva ...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.

"I wasn´t looking for a man at all. That changed when I saw you. I picked you because I couldn´t not pick you".

I loved this book, Kayla and Jack are really easy to connect with and I found myself completely hooked with the story by end of chapter 1.

HOLY BATMAN AND ROBIN!!!!!!!!!!! I don't know about anyone else but I have to say that Entangled has cornered the market in romance and bad boys. They have had a succession of books that will knock you off your feet and keep you wishing there was more and more of those bad boys to read. In A Night o ...more

WOW what a great book. I love when I get immersed into the book and feel the characters in the first chapter.

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 finger ...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 sh ...more

By Jen September 14, 2012

This was a pleasant surprise. The story in and of itself doesn't break any new ground as far as contemporary romances go, but I enjoyed her writing style. Kayla could've come off as stuffy and boring but the author made sure to give her a distinctive and sometimes kick ass personality, especially wh ...more
