DescriptionHe's everything she fears…
and everything she wants
Mercenary by name and by nature, Carson is a Lakota Sioux who stays to himself and never keeps women around long enough for anything emotional to develop. But working with his friend Cash Grier on a complex murder investigation provides Carson with another kind of fun—shocking Cash's sweet-but-traditional secretary, Carlie Blair, with tales of his latest conquests.
Then Carlie lands in deep trouble. She saw something she shouldn't have, and now the face of a criminal is stored permanently in her photographic memory…and Carlie is the key piece of evidence that could implicate a popular politician in the murder case.
Her only protection is Carson—the man she once despised. But when she learns that Carson is more than just a tough guy, Carlie realizes she's endangered herself further. Because now her only chance to live means losing her heart to the most dangerous kind of man….
While I have to admit the hero was kind of a butt and the heroine a bit of a brat, it actually seemed to work for this story. I enjoyed the "innocent" nature of Carlie (Perhaps I can relate on some level, even at my age).
This is simply a style Ms. Palmer can pull off (as many of you who read my other reviews know, I don't care for bratty heroines - but, as I've mentioned, it works for Diana Palmer).
You'll fall in love with the background of the story and it's location and you'll get pulled in by the characters and their insecurities. A must read for a snuggle by your fireplace this winter.
