The sting of this Scorpio is unforgettably hot…

Ivy Danforth is out from under her Colonel father’s overprotective control, and she’s making it count. Big time. She’s taken the summer off to travel through Australia with her bestie and experiencing all that life has to offer-when you’re not under constant military surveillance. She wants to end her summer with some sexy fun, and she has just the hottie in mind.

Seth Rodrigo is ex-Special Forces working undercover and keeping an eye on Ivy as a special favor to her father. All he has to do is not give the game away and reveal who he really is. And especially not give into the hunger that’s burning through his careful control…

Then they’re forced into protective custody. Alone. Together. For four days. And this time, the Colonel’s daughter isn’t taking no for an answer…


"Highly recommend you add this one to the the top of your summer reading list...and make sure you grab a fan too, cause this book is HOT!!" - Red's Romance Reviews

"The storyline was believable, the tension provided by the safe house and their forced close proximity notched up page by page, at just the right amount of “foreplay” for me. The sex scenes were written VERY well. And I do mean VERY well. I could image every touch, every gesture, and every emotion. Yes I have used the word VERY 5 times in this short review, because it is worth 5." -- Joy, Goodreads

"Seducing the Colonel's Daughter was so much fun. I couldn't put it down and whipped through it in one sitting. It was funny, sweet and oh so steamy! Yet again, another perfect example as to why Amy Andrews is one of my favorite go-to authors!" -- Tangled Up in Books

The Colonel’s Daughter by Amy Andrews is not at all what I was expecting, given the two books I’ve read previously in this series, but I loved this book a lot. It’s well-written and intriguing, with a storyline that kept me interes ...more

Overall The Colonel's Daughter was a entertaining read, I was drawn in from the first page and couldn't put it down.

While I did enjoyed the storyline and the writing was well done for me there seemed to be something missing, I didn't feel the connection between Seth and Ivy. It was more lus ...more

Amy never disappoints and this lovely book just confirmed my faith in Amy Andrews writing. Her heroes and heroines are very relatable, very hot and very real. Amy writes the male point of view with authenticity. Dean/Seth was believable every s ...more

J’apprécie particulièrement Amy Andrews qui a commencé sa carrière et la poursuit d’ailleurs chez Harlequin ; elle est également publié chez Entangled Publishing et voilà donc un très classique romantic suspense avec un garde du corps et sa cliente. Ce n’est p ...more

I read this novel as part of the Men of the Zodiac box set but I will be trying to review each novel individually.

The premise of the series is that each man has, for one reason or another, got a tattoo from a mysterious tattoo artist of his astrological sign. No matter that most men don't know their ...more

Quick and enjoyable, The Colonel's Daughter only took an afternoon to read, but it packed quite a punch :)

I really liked Seth, the alpha male bodyguard/security specialist who tries his darnedest to resist falling for the colonel's daughter. Yeah, you know how that one's going to end up, right? ;) I ...more

I really enjoyed this one. The story for whatever reason was engrossing from the beginning, and I quite enjoyed the interactions of the couple.

I enjoyed this book but I was expecting a bit more action that what was in it. Don't get me wrong it was good and you should read it but just don't expect much action.This is the first book I've read by Amy Andrews and I will definitely check out her others.

I really enjoyed this bodyguard romance, with Seth (posing as Dean the bouncer at the bar Ivy works for) having the responsibility to keep an eye on Ivy at the request of her Colonel father. That this man saved Seth's life in Afghanistan means he owes him a debt he feels he can never repay - though ...more

Rating: 3.5

A simmering sexual tension between Ivy and Seth that will quickly reach boiling point if they let it.

Ivy has been raised as an army brat by a now retired, over protective Colonel, so when a threat is made against him, he doesn't hesitate to ensure his daughter is protected. Seth is the ma ...more

Seth is forced by a debt that he owes to Ivy's father to keep an eye on her without her knowledge. What Seth didn’t count on in taking this job was the attraction he feels for the one woman he can’t have. Hell she doesn’t even know his real name and if she knew the reason beyond them even meeting, s ...more

Seth Rodrigo owes Colonel Danforth a lifetime of favours but this latest one that requires him to go undercover and watch over the man's daughter is quite literally, a trip to the edge and into a sea of uncertainty and chaos - everything that's against his ordered and routine life.

This book is # 8 in The Men of The Zodiac series. While each book in this series can be read as a standalone novel, it is a lot of fun reading them in order.
