Some Rules Were Made to Be Broken
Photographer Nick Coltrane broke Daisy Parker's heart nine years ago. And now he wants to hire her as his bodyguard. She wants to tell him where he can go, but her fledgling company desperately needs the cash flow. She once broke her own rules, only to watch his sexy self run for the door. Providing round-the-clock protection for him is out of the question . . . right?
Nick needs Daisy around to keep the hired thugs who are out for his blood from actually getting it. If he can make amends for the way he screwed up nine years ago in the process, then so much the better. Except time has done nothing to dull the memory of how Daisy once rocked his world off its axis, and her cocky attitude and mouthwatering curves still have the power to turn his brain to mush.
Now two people who once were friends and used to be lovers will discover whether love and trust can come from a passion that breaks every rule.

Reveling in romance . . .
Music biographer Ellie Connor searches for the secrets of blues singer Mabel Beauvais's hidden life in Ruth Wind's In the Midnight Rain (HarperTorch, $6.99, 0061030120). Her quest brings her into the life of Blue Reynard, who sings a bittersweet lifesong, and leads to the discovery of her ownÊsweet, sad family history. Wind's writing is as smoky and sensuous as dark Southern nights haunted by secrets and midnight rain.
Raised by his Scottish grandfather, Duncan MacLeish is stunned to learn he also has an English grandfather who has life-changing plans for Duncan in Johanna Lindsay's new historical romance, The Heir (William Morrow, $24, 038097536X; unabridged cassette, Brilliance Audio, $29.95, 1567403581; abridged cassette, Nova Audio Books, $17.95, 1567409032). At first, Duncan rejects the trappings of English aristocracy, especially an arranged marriage to Ophelia. When he meets Sabrina, whose family scandal makes her a totally unacceptable bride, Duncan is even more determined to control his own destiny - and hers. A charming winner!
When Lucy Swift's life is tormented by a stalker, the last person she wants to tell is her late husband's powerful father, Senator Jack Swift. Instead, she turns to the man her husband told her to contact in Carla Neggers's romantic thriller, The Waterfall (Mira, $6.50,1551665824; cassette, Dh Audio, $9.99, 1552042170). Sebastian Redwing is compelled to protect the widow he's secretly loved for years. But is she in more danger from the secret enemy who hates her . . . or Sebastian, whose love may not be enough to keep them both alive? These pages don't just turn; they spin with the best of them.
In Medieval England, an arranged marriage can be deadly, as Hugh de Leon learns in Joan Wolf's new historical mystery, The Poisoned Serpent (HarperCollins, $23, 0060192399). Hugh's friend Bernard is the prime suspect in the murder of Lord Gilbert de Beaute, whose daughter, Elizabeth, is pledged to be Hugh's bride. A marriage neither wants. Hugh's secret pledge to marry Cristen is tempered by the loyalty, which compels him to expose de Beaute's true killer. Wolf crafts a tale of passion that is as intricately woven and attuned to fine detail as a lush medieval tapestry.
Nine years is not too long to get over a broken heart, is it? Security consultant Daisy Parker and her former lover Nick Coltrane put those nine years - and their stubborn hearts - to the test in the sprightly romantic comedy Baby, Don't Go by Susan Andersen (Avon, $6.50, 0380807122). Will Daisy keep the bad guys from doing in Nick before the photographer can fix his lady's heart? Andersen develops the zingy joy of rediscovering lost love just right, baby!
