This is a short, very sexy novel that grabs you from page one!
Angel Smyth is house sitting for her friend Diane and her husband while they are on a cruise. Angels home was being treated for termites, so the timing was perfect. Unusual sounds wake her in the middle of the night and she immediately thinks it's some type of intruder. She listens and is amazed at the nerve of the intruder, in the kitchen , making toast and drinking a beer......her beer! The police have been called, but suddenly she realizes he's in the room with her and panics, kicking and screaming and hitting him with her phone. Luckily the police arrive before damage is done to either Angel or her intruder. The explanations are made and Angel realizes her "intruder" is Diane's Navy Seal brother , Bishop Strong, who hasn't been home for six years. Angel has been infatuated with Bishop even though they have never met. His picture on the mantle, and the stories Diane has told her have turned him into Angels dream man.
Bishop Strong is a hardened Navy Seal with the scars to prove it. His explanation of his life is simple, "I live a hard life, Angel. No place to call home, except here on occasion. Some men like me don't get married, much less have permanent girlfriends." He hopes that explaining his life style to Angel will keep her from becoming too attached. The problem is he suddenly is unable to convince himself.
This novel is hot from the first chapter to the last. Bishop is constantly trying to deny what he feels, but can't seem to keep his hands off her. Angel is a kindergarten teacher with a very innocent persona, but underneath...... a wildcat!
I would recommend this novel to anyone who likes a steamy read that never cools off. I just wish it had been a little longer!
I received this novel from the author for an honest review.
