She's hunting for a mate and there's no more playing it safe.
Daisy Minor is bored. Worse than that, she's boring. A plain, small-town librarian, she's got a wardrobe as sexy as a dictionary and hasn't been on a date in years. She's never even had a lukewarm love affair, let alone a hot one. So when she wakes up on her 34th birthday and wonders how it is that she still lives with her widowed mom and spinster aunt while her friends have all gotten married and started families, she decides it's time to get a life - and a sex life. And as far as she can tell, good girls don't attract nearly as many men as bad ones.
One makeover later, Daisy has transformed herself into a party girl extraordinaire. She's dancing the night away at clubs, and laughing and flirting with men for the first time in, well, forever. With a new lease on her own place, it's open season for manhunting.
But on her way home late one night, Daisy sees something she's not supposed to see. Suddenly the target of a killer, she's forced to put her manhunt on hold. But the very moment she stops looking might be the moment she finds what she's wanted all along.

"A thriller... with deftness and charm." (The Orlando Sentinel)
Hot romance/Sci Fi we're so lucky to have Audible to feed our book addictions. I love walking my precious dog Sydney & listening to my books
I enjoyed this fun story. It was well narrated and had a little mild sex spice added in. All in all an enjoyable listen. :)
I liked the relationship and banter between Daisy and the cop.
I liked the book but thought that it was kind of an anticlimactic ending. I found it interesting how she put a little bit in there about the Mayor's wife at the end.
AUDIBLE MAKES READING POSSIBLE AND EASY FOR ME...I AM VISUALLY IMPAIRED. I WISH THEY HAD ALL THE BOOKS I WANT I WOULD SNAP THEM UP!
i have about 123-30 books. it is in the top 25.
no i found the book to be a light book. even comical at times. but i found the story very entertaining.
i think the scenes when jack and daisy were "sparring". they were comical. it was the type of book that no matter how it ended it would still have been entertaining.
green behind the gills
the reader was great. i loved the story!
Mother of 3, grandmother of 6, retired nurse and substance abuse counselor. Thrilled to have the time to read or listen to books again.
really good book, the story line was great and for a story line that deals with the less than pleasant elements in our society i found myself laughing several times through out the book. Ms. Howard did a tremendous job in mixing sex, humor, love and crime into a really good book. i loved the characters especially the aunt who really was a minor character but hysterical.
the narrator was great as well.
Yes, narrator portrayed characters far better than print did.
I have listened to this over and over. When I can't find anything new that appeals to me I listen to this or "Mr. Perfect" or " Now You See Me." Linda Howard ha become 3rd in my top ten authors. This booked helped her secure the placement.
It was a cute story, but predictable. The narrator did a great job with the voices and accent.
This was a re-read for me and the second time around I still enjoyed it. The best part of the story was the romance. Linda Howard really knows how to write a believable "I can't stand you" to "I love you" romance. I liked the main characters a lot, but Daisy was so naive, it got to be ridiculous. Still a good listen, though not my favorite Linda Howard book.
I already like Linda Howard, but with this book, there are some down right LOL moments (literally)--wait til the condom box scene. Hee! Yes, there is the romance aspect, but it's also a thriller and suspense. It will keep you on your toes and you'll fall in love with the main characters (including the main woman's aunt and mom). You won't regret getting this book. I listened to it on audio (I like audiobooks while I run or do weights) and the narrator is wonderful. You won't regret giving this book a chance. If you like this one, check out her Medina series.
I guess I can also relate since I grew up in a small town. You'll love Daisy, Jack, Ev, aunt Jo, Todd, etc.
Hello, my name is Teresa and I'm an addict.
This book was the first book I read by Linda Howard and have since read almost everything that she has writen, I was glad to see it on Audible. This is a fun, and simple romance. One of her first where she was trying for a little suspense but didn't quite hit the mark. But fun in the romance section and defiently worth the listen. More favorites by Linda Howard are Mr. Perfect, Now you See Her, and Cover of Night.
Was a very nice love story with a little action with the illegal stuff going on.
Her search for a husband to have babies with.
When she sat on that man's lap and accidentally started a bar fight.
Yes but it took me four sittings.
