"A scorching contemporary romance that I couldn't put down.”
- Carly Phillips, New York Times Bestselling Author

They’re doing more than playing doctor…

Piper Dawson has spent a lifetime living by other people’s rules.

She’s worked hard to get what she wants—a residency at her first choice hospital—and no one will ever tie her down again, not even her severe yet incredibly sexy supervisor, Dr. Alexander “Ace” Lennox.

Ace is done with love. He’s had his heart shattered, and he never wants to go there again. But when he’s inexplicably enticed by the sexy, tattooed woman with blue streaks in her hair and a perpetual smile on her lip, he figures that maybe he can keep it to just sex.

The problem? He thrives on control, and Piper dances just around the edges of it.

But when they're together, control is the first thing to go...

Each book in the Pulse series is a standalone, full-length story that can be enjoyed out of order.
Book one: Engaging the Bachelor
Book two: Seducing the Boss
Book three: Claiming the Enemy
Book four: Shocking the Medic

4 Claiming What’s Yours Stars

Stroking his tongue over her lips, he traced it over her teeth, demanding entrance. She yielded, her bones liquefying as he claimed her. “Since the moment you interrupted my mother. You annoy me, terrify me, piss me off, and intrigue me. I can’t get you out of my head.”

Dr. Lennox and Dr. Dawson... WHOA. Talk about explosively hot! My Kindle damn near overheated from what these two were putting out there—and I gotta say, I liked it.

The dirty-talking Ace was a delight, a true panty-melter, and if he wanted to claim/own ME, I'd be thrilled. For him, and his sexy AF ...more

Claiming the Enemy? Lordy but it's sexy as all get out and turned me into a reading fiend. I couldn't put this one down. Dishes? Laundry? Pffft they sure weren't happening until I finished that last page.

Piper Dawson has had a rough life.  Raised in foster families, she never felt like she belonged with any family she was with. Because of that, she's learned you have to fight for what you get-no one is going to just give it to you.  Now she's working in the ER of a top hospital, almost finished with ...more

I love this book. It was everything I was looking for and then some. With hints of erotica along with some deliciously hot sex this book was hard to put down.

Ace is so hot and one of those characters you just pray would actually be real so you could meet and fall for him yourself. Plus I love Piper. ...more

If the relationships on a show like ER (I know, I'm dating myself with that one), Grey's Anatomy or another favorite medical drama are what keep you tuning into them time and time again then a romance like this should be on your shelf, with the knowledge that the couple will stay together at the end ...more

This series is sure one that at times you better be aware of where you are because you could be embarrassed by reactions from reading this one.

Piper is from rural Ohio and a foster child. Nothing makes sense to her except medicine. She admits to not having that filter and she says exactly what she thinks. Ace is from snooty Hamptons (sorry for those who live there and aren't snooty). His mother only wants him with the purest blue blood she ...more

Piper, a resident in the ER of Hampton General, is mentally beating the crap out of her conservative OCD, sexy (oops, how'd that slip in there?) supervisor. No, it's not as satisfying as actually doing it, but there's no risk of going to jail when it's only a mental beating. When she tries to be nic ...more

3.5 stars.

This is an undeniably hot read, with sexy Ace taking plenty of control in the bedroom and Piper enjoying herself hugely. There’s a hint of antagonism between them, but only at the beginning and only very briefly, as Piper turns to Ace for help and ends up helping him in return, which prese ...more

the title for claiming the enemy is a bit misleading, since i'm not sure that doctors piper dawson and alexander "ace" lennox can be described as enemies. she's a resident at hampton bay hospital and he is her attending physician, her boss. after a childhood spent bouncing around foster homes, piper ...more

I received an ARC of this book in exchange for my honest review.

Claiming The Enemy is a medical romance at its best. Ace is Piper's supervisor, and of course them being involved is against hospital rules. They decide to have a sex only relationship but it doesn't take long for their romance to bloss ...more

About the author

NY Times Best Selling, USA Today Best Selling Author

Lauren Hawkeye

New York Time and USA Today bestselling author Lauren Hawkeye never imagined that she’d wind up telling stories for a living... though when she looks back, it’s easy to see that she’s the only one who is surprised. Always “the kid who read all the time”, Lauren made up stories about her favorite characters once she’d finished a book... and once spent an entire year narrating her own life internally. No, really. But where she was just plain odd before publication, now she can at least claim to have an artistic temperament. Lauren lives in the Rocky Mountains of Alberta, Canada with her husband, two young sons, pit bull and two idiot cats, though they do not live in an igloo, nor do they drive a dogsled. In her nonexistent spare time Lauren can be found knitting, reading anything she can get her hands on, or sweating her way through spin class. She loves to hear from her readers!
