Debbie Randall had always wanted to travel, and with her friend about to give birth, she found her chance. Lily Longren, the wife of a long time friend, had to go home because her father, Morgan, had hurt his leg and couldn`t look after Lily`s brothers. So since Lily was so close to her due date, Debbie offered to go.


Detective Cole Brownfield likes his life how it is. He comes home from work, a few dips in the pool and then he eats and goes to bed. Repeat the next day. But Debbie turns his life upside down the moment she shows up in a cab, barely alive from air sickness. She talks to people and gains their trust in a way that he`s never seen before, and he finds himself needing her more every day.


After his partner is shot, Debbie sees a side of Cole that scares her and intrigues her at the same time. She finally sees him as a cop, not the brother of a friend and the man she`s falling in love with. But after Lily gives birth and recovers, Debbie can see her work is done and heads to go home.


This is another winner from Sharon Sala. Debbie`s quick wit and the way she can rankle anyone with a remark that can be taken two ways is extremely memorable.


Cole is probably one of the sexiest cops that I`ll ever read about. That I`ll ever want to read about. But the story between them was also a tearful journey, one that I`m going to reread soon, without any hesitation.
