Andrew Jackson “Jack” Kent’s on the hunt for white collar criminals, and as a private investigator he always gets his man. Except in this case it’s a woman, the brilliant cellular kineticist Dr. Morgan Mackenzie, whose next thrilling discovery is—him.

On the run from her employers with the formula for a priceless but deadly diet drug, Morgan agrees to a night of pleasure with the outrageously sexy stranger. But when she leaves the next morning, Jack won’t let her get far, and that’s when she realizes the horrible truth. Her cowboy on a white horse isn’t a hero after all. He’s part of the posse.

Yet when Jack goes to turn Morgan in, he learns who the real criminals are, and suddenly, it’s a race against time to find a murderer before they’re killed themselves. To do that Jack needs to convince Morgan he’s on her side. Even though she doesn’t trust him, Jack is a drug she can’t resist, leading her to find out that more often than not you're Damned If You Don't fall in love.

My Thoughts:

Dr. Morgan MacKenzie and Jackson Kent are having a serious conversation.  But Morgan has a secret that she’s keeping from him.  Jack seems to be one smooth operator and he just may have a secret of his own.

Be warned, our couple is willing to push their sexual boundaries and this includes the thrill of being caught in public – and doesn’t that excite you just a little bit?  There is some medical terminology but it isn’t clinical enough to confuse the reader but just enough to help set the mystery that surrounds Morgan.  This is a high-energy tale that starts almost from the first paragraph.  It has just the right mix of action, suspense, mystery and sex.  It also seems to move rather quickly.

Morgan and Jack don’t seem to be a couple that you would normally picture together.  But when the chemistry is there, the people involved just can’t ignore it.  With all the drama surrounding these two, all of that disappears when they are by themselves.  That mystery and chemistry is what will have you hooked right until the last word.  The author makes the reader feel as if they are a voyeur who just can’t look away.  You want to see that climax because you feel it as well. 

As I got toward the end, the author gave me a surprise that I wasn’t expecting.  But isn’t that what we love about our authors – totally surprising the reader with the least expected.  And nothing is revealed too quickly so that you have no choice but to keep turning the page so that you can figure out where all this is going to lead.  This is a book that you will be happy to add to your library.
