There's one rule for a one night stand: NEVER see your part-time lover again. EVER.
So what's a girl to do if the tall, dark, and too-darn-yummy guy shows up at her office?
By-the-book Deputy Susannah Quinn has all she can do to resist Special Agent D. E. Hogan.
Hang on to your Stetson as the fun and games begin in this sexy romp that's as hot as a bowl of Texas chili!
To catch a thief, Susannah Quinn, a by-the-book deputy, and FBI Special Agent D. E. Hogan (just call me Hogan), pose as husband and wife and go undercover. Unfortunately, Susannah and Hogan have already been undercover - in a bed at the Houston hotel where they first met.
For her part, Susannah wishes her lapse in judgment would take a flying leap and land on Jupiter. Hogan, on the other hand, wants to get the contrary deputy back in his bed, but the complications caused by family - his and hers - pretty much guarantee that's never going to happen.
Throw in an over-the-hill Romeo and his lady love, a single mom determined to have her own love affair, and the charm of a small Texas town, and you get a story with heart and soul and passion. Lots of passion.
Can Susannah and Hogan, two mismatched lovers doing everything in their power to avoid falling in love, catch a thief and recover stolen jewels? The clock is ticking. They have only seven days - and nights - to complete their assignment and resist the sweet siren call of desire.

So far, I love the way each character is brought to life through Holly Adams' performance--she has a distinctive voice and delivery for each character, so I feel drawn into their world and world view. I have only finished the first part of the book, but I found myself getting more and more drawn into it as the story unfolds...
Susannah--she is so independent and intellligent--determined to be her own person, yet not fully aware and accepting of herself as a woman. I look forward to discovering the way her character develops in the second half of the book!
No, I have not listened to Holly Adams before, but I plan to find other books she has read-- the nuances of her voices, the pacing of her delivery, and the variety of inflections in her tone make this a believable and compelling book--she really draws you in, helping you experience each moment of the story ---bringing it to life in a wonderfully engaging manner--I want more!
I look forward to finishing this story--it is a lot of fun--certainly a great romance/love story and nice light reading/listening.
Average. I feel very neutral about the book. I didn't hate it but it wasn't the kind of book I couldn't put down either.
I loved the story line of Mother teaches daughter about the bad parts of love but they both learn its not as bad as they had thought. I could predict every portion of the book but it was a cute story.
I was actually enjoying the book until the end. In fact, I lowered the number of stars simply because of the ending. It's one of those books that spends a lot of time on telling us why two characters "can't" get together, then they have "amazing" sex, and suddenly all the lies, deceits, and lack of communication don't matter anymore. Their "chemistry" transcends the fact that they never talk to each other, never work anything out, and allows them to instantly 'forgive' all transgressions. Yeah, right! I better stop or I'll lower the star count.
Someone looking for no depth and enjoys aweful narration, irritating characters....or someone needing something to help them go to sleep
The storyline was boring, slow and frustrating
