Taylor is a laid-back, smart-aleck kind of lawman. He s also a man s man, as well as every woman s private fantasy. But years ago, he was part of a botched hostage situation that ended with him being hailed as a tough-as-nails hero even though the pain, fear, and shame from that terrible day still haunt his every moment.
Cara Evans couldn t care less about Taylor s pain. In the moment he became a so-called hero, she lost someone she dearly loved. Yet neither of them is prepared for the instant, undeniable attraction that flares between them or the danger that s soon hot on their heels."

In the second of Davis’s Sugarland Blue romantic suspense series (after Sworn to Protect), Det. Taylor Kayne has taken refuge in the Tennessee town of Sugarland after a brutal, bloody hostage situation in Los Angeles left him haunted by nightmares and guilt. Purple-tressed, take-no-nonsense rocker Cara Evans considers Taylor responsible for the death of her sister, who was one of the hostages, so she takes her band to Sugarland, seeking revenge. Happily for a book heavy on scorching-hot erotic scenes, Cara soon decides she would rather bed Taylor than destroy him. Taylor finds it hard to trust her, however, when an old friend of hers is killed and he discovers the dead man’s phone in Cara’s closet. The book rapidly shifts from steamy sex to suspense and action, distracting from prose that’s occasionally as purple (“The kiss of a starving man, too long denied”) as Cara’s hair. Agent: Roberta Brown, Brown Literary Agency. (Dec.)
