I'm reading...Robin Covington

A NIGHT OF SOUTHERN COMFORT

First - the title. It just sizzles right off the bat.  Dive into the book and it does not disappoint.

With a single title feel and situation - small town cop protecting the Governor's daughter - the heroine is layered and strong, the hero gorgeous and damaged...and all man.  This story gets five flames on the heat scale.  Phew!  It should honestly come with a fan.

The fact that this is a first book blows my mind.  From the opening moment til the last it's so accomplished a story.  Richly detailed, full, exciting, and sexy.  Every time I had to put it down - a girl has to sleep, stock the fridge, feed her kids etc. - I did so with a whimper.

Add to that the fact that there are a handful of the hero's besties out there getting their own stories written and Robin Covington with A Night of Southern Comfort has made me one happy reader!


THE BLURB:

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.
