Fan favorite Lora Leigh collaborates with her sister Veronica Chadwick to pen this steamy romantic suspense set in the foreground of the majestic Tennessee Mountains.

There is something fishy going on in the small town of Jericho, Tennessee and County Sheriff Jackson Montgomery is determined to get to the bottom of it. He was hired when the late sheriff, his uncle Tobias, was killed in a hunting accident. But Jackson knows there was no way his uncle’s death was an accident. Add to that the mayor’s unusually intense interest in the goings-on in the sheriff’s department. Throw in the return of the one woman Jackson could never get out of his mind and you have one wary, horny and dangerously distracted cop.

Rebecca Taylor didn’t know what to expect when she transferred from the Detroit police department and returns to her hometown and joins the sheriff’s department. She certainly didn’t expect to find the man she’s been in love with since she was a teenager would be her new boss.

Since she was twelve years old Rebecca has known that Jackson Montgomery was the only man for her, the only man she ever wanted. But at ten years her senior, Jackson has always seen her as his shadow, as his precocious little pixie pest. And she didn’t expect that he could burn for her as much as she did for him. With the situation in town becoming perilous Jack is forced to call in reinforcements to help solve the case- and keep Rebecca.

Jackson Montgomery is big, bold, and brawny. Like virtually all of Lora Leigh’s heroes, he is a man of honestly expressed opinions. He pulls no punches and will die to protect what is his. Although Lora’s voice is very clear throughout this book her partner, Veronica, may also be clearly heard in terms of the less primal instinctual tone of this story. All in all, I believe that fans, new and old, will love this new offering and the opportunity to sample a new voice in erotic romance.
