Publisher's Summary

Ever since photographer Lacy Maguire caught her ex playing Pin the Secretary to the Elevator Wall, she's been content with her dog, Fabio; her three cats; and a vow of chastity. But all of that changes when the reindeer-antlered Fabio drags in a very desperate on-the-run detective named Chase Kelly, and he decides to take refuge in Lacy's house - a house filled with twinkling lights and a decorated tree. (Okay, so it's February, but she has a broken heart to mend, a Christmas card shoot to do, and a six-times divorced, matchmaking mother to appease.) For the first time in a long time, Lacy reconsiders her vow - because Chase, wounded soul that he may be, would be an oh-so-delicious way of breaking it. But if she's going to do that, she'll have to keep them both alive and him out of jail....

Everything I want in a romance!

This book has everything I want in a romance. I was laughing out loud at this story of a divorcee and an on-the-run cop accused of a shooting. The characters have heart, and the love scenes are smokin'! This is a highly enjoyable read with great suspense...and did I mention the hot love scenes? Will be checking out other works by Christie Craig, whose characters leap off the page, and whose inappropriate sense of humor was a perfect match for my own!

Fun book

First time reading this author. Good story, to my thinking, somewhat light hearted. Nice for a Sunday afternoon read.

Lacked just about everything

Cheesy, silly with no redeeming features at all.
The characters were witless, The story fluffy and plain silly. If soft porn is your thing, maybe you might find the book of some interest but even the ‘love’ scenes lacked depth.
I just could not finish it.

shallow heroine

I have enjoyed this author's crime stories and romances, and although the crime storyline with the males in this story was engaging, I simply could not tolerate the female lead. I got about halfway through the story, but the single minded female was obsessed with sex and any time she was in the scene I simply could not respect her. she had no purpose in this story except to obsess about sex, and it was stale and didn't move the story along. when my irritation with her outlived my enjoyment of the crime story I simply couldnt endure the idiotic female any more. I hope the bad guy was caught, the officer in the hospital survived, and the heros went on to happy lives, but the hero deserved much better than the way this story was headed. I still enjoy the author, but perhaps this series is just not for me.
