Millionaire rancher Gil Addison does not need Bailey Collins. She is far from the sweet homemaker he thought he wanted. But she is a beautiful woman with a badge, hot on the heels of a kidnapper in Gil's club. And Gil is hot for her!
Bailey can't let her career get sidetracked by the cowboy and his son. She's here to do a job, not find a family. Bailey won't stop till she gets her man in cuffs.... Trouble is Gil won't stop till he gets this woman in his bed!
I’ve read a few of the Desire books but I think I liked this one the most. It had plenty of desirous moments without being down-right ridiculous. It was also about the kidnapping of Alex, who got away or was released but no one knew which since he had amnesia when he got home. And the answers were still not answered at the end of this story.
Bailey was a state investigator sent to figure out what happened to Alex. Gil was a ranch owner who wanted Bailey, but didn’t want to want her. Needless to say, they finally got together, while Bailey continued to look into the kidnapping and Gil became more and more confused about his growing feelings for Bailey.
This was a very good romance-mystery and I will definitely be reading more of Janice Maynard.
There was explicit sex in this story but it was very well written. It was romantic sex instead of erotic sex.
As to the narration: Yeah, I really didn’t like Jack Garrett all that much. I don’t know how he got so many 4 and 5 star reviews. He doesn’t even try to feminize his voice but he does read with emotions. Actually, I do prefer male narrators to MOST female readers. I can handle a woman with a little deeper voice but I can’t stand all the heroes and the males in the books sounding just like a woman. Although Mr. Garrett does have a nice reading voice he needs to practice his women’s voices.
