Brent Braddock flouts the rules. He's the ultimate charmer with his cocky wink and slow molten grin! But there's still too much range left to ride for a cowboy vampire like him to consider settling down.
Then he meets Command Master Chief Petty Officer Abigail Trent. She goes strictly by the books and is always the toughest one in the room. But damn, when Brent gets an eyeful - and then some! - of what's underneath her very unfeminine clothes... Oh, yeah, she's definitely all woman.
And she's the first one to make Brent think about ending his love 'em and leave 'em ways!
But can a woman who champions all things good and a...well...a vampire make it work? Only if bad boy Brent can regain the one thing forever denied to him...his humanity.

Although I've enjoyed previous books in this series, and I've loved getting to know the residents of Skull Creek, this book just didn't grab me the same way. Some of that was down to the heroine.
With her work, the risks she's taken, the life she's led, I expected Abby to have far more confidence, but her self worth came across as almost non existent. I could understand her lack of interest/lack of experience in wearing girl clothes, as I've known quite a few women in the armed forces who've had that problem (just as I've known an equal number who are the opposite).
Having said that, Brent was worth getting to know and the connection between them is undeniable. He's a powerful, sexy hero and the tie in with Cody's story, bringing the two brothers together, is a nice touch.
I just wish that I'd felt better about Abby...
The narrator wasn't too bad, parts of the story he worked very well for, other parts I cringed and tried not to turn off the story. So, all in all this is a 3 star.
To accomplish great things, we must not only act, but also dream; not only plan, but also believe.
For whatever the reason, I couldn't get into this one. Abby was boring, and Brent was tepid as old tea. It was an ok story, I would only bother with it if I had nothing else to read.
