Is she strong enough to trust the most dangerous man she s ever met? And is he strong enough to let her?
How would I describe myself? Well, I m Muse Harper. I m a twenty-something painter who loves red wine, quirky movies, and men with a fatal flaw. But that was before I met Jasper King. He became my fatal flaw. Eight months ago, I had a choice to make abandon everything I ve ever known to protect my family, or stay and risk someone getting hurt. I chose the former. My plan was working just fine until I found out my father had gone missing.
That s when I met Jasper. A bounty hunter with the eyes of a tiger and the nose of a bloodhound, he was supposed to help me find my father. What I didn t know was that meeting him was no accident. Hunting people isn t all that Jasper does. And helping me was only part of his plan. I just wish I d found out sooner, before my heart got involved. But even then, I don t know if I d have done things differently.
Now, I have another choice to make trust the man that I m falling in love with and hope that he ll do the right thing, or run as far away from him as I can get."

Leighton (the Bad Boys series) brings intrigue and passion to the first installment of her new erotic romance trilogy, but poor writing mars an otherwise enjoyable story. When Muse Harper’s father, an Army colonel, sends her to the West Coast for her own protection, she doesn’t complain. But then her father goes missing. Short on options, Muse hires Jasper King, a ruthless and charismatic bounty hunter, to help her find him. Jasper struggles with the new experience of being distracted from his mission by a sexy client, and a lengthy car trip to South Carolina threatens to undermine their restraint and throw the couple into a romance with no future—unless Jasper can learn a new way to live and Muse can accept revelations about her father and his past. Jasper is emotionally damaged and protective without being an aggressive jerk, and Muse’s enthusiasm for his displays of dominance is palpably genuine. The prose is wretched—“The heat of it, hotter than the bath water. The wetness of it, wetter than the bath water”—and every development is a cliché, but the chemistry is believable and the sex is hot. (Aug.)
