Read an Excerpt

She was warmly cocooned in the bed when Alastair emerged from the shower. Jaws was tucked up next to her, lying full length along her side with his sweet little face on her shoulder. He was snoring softly.

Alastair was wearing a clean, white t-shirt and the bottoms to the flannel pjs she was half wearing. He was rubbing a towel energetically over his red hair, drying it into bristly spikes on his head, military style. The hair was so short on his well shaped head that just the brisk rubbing with the towel appeared to have dried it completely.

He threw the damp towel over the back of one of the kitchen chairs and headed for the couch. "Sweet dreams."

Angie realized he intended to sleep on the tiny couch. Seconds earlier she had been struggling with the idea that he would join her on the bed. Now she was feeling anxious about him sleeping on the couch. She was an emotional train wreck.

Alastair extinguished the lamp next to the couch and the room fell into relative darkness, lit only by the flickering amber light of the fire. The soft crackling sounds of the wood in the fireplace made the room feel cozy and safe.

Angie fought against lethargy and mentally pounded herself for her reluctance to invite him into the bed. He didn't deserve to be scrunched onto that tiny couch all night. He was just being a gentleman. A truly superior trait that Angie had seen much too little of from the men she'd encountered during the paltry span of her dating experience. And being a gentlemen of apparently the highest order, why shouldn't he sleep in the bed and be comfortable. She was comfortable in the bed.

She bit her bottom lip.

Weakness was an alienemotion to her. She had always despised weakness and had spent a lifetime stiffening her spine and forging onward through whatever pain life dealt her. But there she was dithering pitifully over whether to invite a really great guy, whose presence on the couch proved he had class, to share the bed with her. It wasn't as if she was going to let him ravish her. Although the idea did have merit. She smiled in the dark. It was just sleeping. Sleeping was totally innocent. She forcefully pushed away all thoughts of how warm he would be and how good he'd feel stretched out on the small bed next to her.

Damn! You stop those nasty thoughts right now Angie Marie Peterson. That's the entire trouble here. You have the mind of a street walker and the experience of a nun. And now poor Alastair has to pay the price because you're afraid you won't be able to control yourself.

Angie frowned into the night and stiffened her spine in anger at herself. "That's just silly." She muttered aloud. Then she opened her mouth to invite him to bed.

A soft snore floated to her from the couch. She slammed her mouth closed and sighed. Then she got up and stripped the comforter from the bed, carrying it to the couch and draping it over him carefully so as not to wake him. She stood looking down at him for a minute while he slept. He looked pale and she wondered if that was his natural color, being a redhead, or if it was from being sick. The end of his nose was still a little red.

She reached down and touched his forehead and he did feel a little warm. But then she didn't know if that was normal for him too. His lashes formed two thick fringes across his cheeks and made her smile. He looked like a cute little boy when he slept. A tender feeling sat lightly on her heart for a brief flicker of time but she shook it off. They were virtual strangers dealing with a calamitous situation that was going to take every ounce of their attention and intuition to fix. She didn't have time for any soft, cozy heart farts.

She reluctantly returned to the bed, resuming the snuggling position with her new boyfriend. Jaws gave a tiny sigh and settled back to sleep on her shoulder. She kissed his soft head and nestled into the pillow with a sigh. She could get used to this.

First off, thought I enjoyed the story I am not sure why it is in the romance category. Well written with likeable character and plot, the story centers around Angie who has just overheard a murder plot. Believing it is her civic duty to help the victim she beats feet to Alistair Honeybuns house and the action begins. The good points were the story hummed along at a good pace, the action scenes were thrilling, there were quite a few funny moment, Alistair was not this he-man but more human; it is obvious the author has talent. The bad things were that it was painfully lacking in romance. You know Angie and Alistair are attracted to each other but nothing happens until well into the second half of the story. The subplots are all over the place then left hanging with no conclusion, people are added in at the last minute and then the story just....ends. This book should not be in the romance section. Saying that, I still enjoyed it

Alastair Honeybun!!!!! Angie finds herself in a world of danger after attempting to be a Good Samaritan. She find herself deep into the world of the Honeybun brothers. She is accepted quickly into their "clan" because she saved Alastair. I really enjoyed this first adventure with the Honeybun clan. The dynamic between the brothers is comical and endearing. Angie is engulfed in the family and wouldn't change a thing. The deep connection, passion, and chemistry between Alastair and Angie is inspiring. I look forward to reading more from the Honeybun family!

I loved this story about Angie overhearing two men talking about killing someone. She felt she needed to tell the man that his life was in danger so calls him. When Alastair got the call, he thought it was a prank so hung up.  Angie didn't stop there and went to his house to explain she had heard men saying they were going to kill him. Turns out Alastair didn't know he had witnessed a kidnapping which is why they were after him.  Tension rises when Alastair is just about to phone the police and the bad guys arrive.  Angie and Alastair ran out the back door and kept going. This great story has many of the Honeybun brothers helping the pair stay hidden and contact the police. They are all very skilled in their various professions but I loved that all the brothers put family first, never hesitating to do absolutely anything for one of their siblings.  Sam Cheever definitely brings his characters to life in a big way. I thoroughly enjoyed getting to know the characters that carry his story forward. They really made this an enjoyable reading experience for me. It was fast paced and action packed, wildly imaginative yet completely believable, incredibly hot & tenderly sweet. Cheever’s fluid writing makes this story very easy to lose yourself in. Unfortunately for me at about a third of the way through the story, I was still confused about who actually took Debra and why. That was frustrating. Even though this is a thrilling and sexy tale there were humorous parts too. I keep thinking about the scene where Angie comes out to "save" Alastair where she is nude except for a pair of combat boots.  She is carrying a large kitchen knife to kill the scorpion. Even days after reading it I haven't been able to get the image out of my mind. As I have said, I loved this exciting book. I highly recommend it.

Bad, bad, bad. No chemistry. Cliched, bad writing, stupid story. Even for free it cost too much. I will finish it because I hate to leave a book unfinished, but at page 154, with 32 pages to go, it is not something I am looking forward to.s
