Smoking hot heroes, driven heroines, and inventive stories--Nina Croft is on my one-click list!" – NYT bestselling author Katee Robert
It takes an incredibly good man to tame a bad, bad girl…
As a second-generation detective, Nathan Carter is a cop, through and through, one who definitely sees things in black and white. But his work ethic—and libido—are thrown off balance when he heads up the case against jewel thief, Regan Malloy. Because with one sizzling look, she’s got him hot and hard. And he’s been that way, ever since.
Growing up, Regan’s favorite hobby was learning to crack safes, and she was very, very good at it. Still, she’d always tried to keep to the straight and narrow, and only strayed when she believed a friend was in desperate straits. Now she’s out of prison and starting over. If only she could forget that she’d spent the last three years fantasizing about the stunningly gorgeous detective who locked her away.
It’s inevitable that they meet up again—in bars, hotels…and hotel beds. Despite their differences, they can’t keep their hands off each other. Still, it’s just desire. If they give it enough time, it’ll burn itself out. Because a good boy and a bad girl can’t possibly make it work. Can they?

4 Stars: “Whether it be the scorching sex, bonds of friendship, the accidental meeting of Regan’s family (holy smokes, even I felt the embarrassing burn) or the heartfelt moments between Nathan and his father, there is something for every romance reader in this fantastically written story.” - Rachel Hamilton, The Sub Club Books

Nina weaves a story rich in characters and with all the complexities that life likes to throw at all of us, and uses humour and drama to good effect that keeps you involved in the characters journeys.” - Ellen Hall, Goodreads
