Book Description:

She’s a challenge he can’t resist.

Hollywood heartthrob Zachary Hunter loves women—as long as they don’t want more than a little fun in the bedroom. When his most recent movie stirs up the wrong kind of attention, the kind that includes an attempt on his life, he hires a friend’s company to locate the threat. The pint-sized redhead assigned to protect him isn’t what he expects—or wants. Worse, he can’t take his eyes off of her.

After ten years in the army, Danielle Sinclair knows how to handle men. With a new security gig to pass the time until she’s cleared to return to the military, she’s figures her sexy new client will be easy to manage. And then he opens his gorgeous mouth, and she can’t decide whether to kiss him or kill him. His sex appeal may tempt her into his bed, but his sexist attitude is unbearable, and she’s going to make him eat every single word…


My Take On The Book:

Nina Croft has done it again. She never ceases to amaze and please. This book is no exception; delivering a sizzling read mixed with action, suspense, and romance. With a strong female lead in the form of Army Sergeant Dani and a swoon worthy male in the form of sexy writer Zach, you have the beginnings of a recipe for a great read. But Ms. Croft does you one better and actually delivers a great story to go with the steamy romance and fan yourself scenes.

I might be a bit biased being a short (5’0) kick ass, take no prisoners girl myself BUT I’m sure this is a great read and the character Dani will worm her way into your hearts just as she did mine and leading male Zach. This is definitely one read that will surprise and captivate. There were plenty of times I was sure I knew what was going to happen and then poof, something else happened and I realized I was wrong...

It’s a short read, taking me no more than 2 hours to read, but that might have more to do with my inability to put the book down and my need to devour it and see how it all panned out. But it was how it flowed from one chapter to the next, time jumps and all that made this such an easy read.

 

4.5 Quills

The book reminds me vaguely of the ‘In Death’ series by JD Robb. Not so much the storyline but more to do with the kickass female lead and the steamy scenes. Its not round the clock action but a slow build of romance and the getting to know each other of two great characters.

About The Author 

Nina Croft grew up in the north of England. After training as an accountant, she spent four years working as a volunteer in Zambia which left her with a love of the sun and a dislike of 9-5 work. She then spent a number of years mixing travel (whenever possible) with work (whenever necessary) but has now settled down to a life of writing and picking almonds on a remote farm in the mountains of southern Spain.
