Book Blurb

Sheriff John Henry Harrison didn't even know the old McAdams place had been sold, so when he receives a disturbance call, he rushes right out there, positive it's just a bunch of kids causing a ruckus. What he discovers there changes his life in ways he never could have imagined.

After losing his wife to cancer, Charlie Pennington was just trying to find a peaceful place to settle down with his young kids. He never imagined that buying the old McAdams homestead would bring the sexiest lawman he had ever seen into his life.

When trouble arrives at Charlie's door in the form of a custody battle for his kids and a drug lord bent on revenge, Charlie is shocked when John Henry steps right in to help. But even with his former marine buddies at his side, Charlie isn't sure he can keep everyone he loves alive. Sending them to safety seems like the best choice, until John Henry refuses to go.

Book Review

This book proves that Stormy Glenn can come up with a pretty crazy and tension-filled storyline and some awesome characters without setting a single foot in paranormal land. While I sort of knew that, it was good fun to have it reconfirmed. As for the main characters, a sheriff and an ex-Marine, what can I say? Hot, hot, hot, both inside and out of bed.

John Henry, the sheriff, and Charlie are a match for each other in many respects. Both are good at their jobs, overprotective of others, and fall for each other faster than should be legal. They're pretty evenly matched in most areas and that makes for some fun reading.

As for the supporting characters? The villains are more than evil and sort of grated on my nerves, but all those hot Marines and other team members running around more than made up for it. I sure hope they all get their own story at some point.

If you're looking for a light, entertaining read with lots of hot men, if gangsters and money-crazy villains don't stop you from enjoying a story, and if two men falling for each other and starting a family are your thing, you will probably like this novella.
