One night of passion...

Detective Jackson Cantrell never imagined that one night with an irresistible stranger would turn his life upside down. He's spent years living in the shadows, but Dr. Michaela Roarke awakened a passion inside him he'd buried years ago.

He never expected the woman would turn out to be the governor's daughter...and his next assignment. The governor blackmails Jackson to secretly watch over Michaela and protect her from a stalker, or kiss his dream job at the FBI good-bye. Swearing to keep things strictly professional, Jackson moves in with Michaela. Too bad his heart can't keep the same promise.

But when the stalker's attacks quickly escalate beyond mere photographs to bodily harm, Jackson must race to save Michaela's life. And he'll have to figure out how to keep her once she discovers his lie.

One night of uncontrolled passion was all it took. Of course Kayle didn't know that at the time. After finally breaking free of her controlling governor father, she has opened her practice and started to make a new life for herself. He first night with her new life she sees a man in a tux at the hotel bar and decides it can't hurt to let loose for once and take what she wants. Luckily for her Jackson can't seem to get enough of the hot girl that's been staring at him all night. But what was supposed to be just one night into a hotel room comes back to turn into something neither of them ever expected when a stalker enters the picture. Can Jackson keep Kayla safe? And can both of them keep their hearts out of the mix? Sooooo....ummmmmmm....WOW! This was hot. Like H.O.T, hot from the very beginning. The chemistry between Kayla and Jackson is beyond scorching and I ate up every minute of it. But the best part is that the story outside the bedroom was also fantastic. The plot, yes that's right there's was an actually plot, was well rounded and sucked me into the story. There is just some much going on outside of the steamy sex scenes and I couldn't get enough. I love how protective Jackson was over Kayla even when he was denying his feelings for her. And the way Kayla handled having a stalker. Always trying to take care of herself. I will say that there were a few times that I felt the descriptive words were a little over done. In some spots there would be three or even four descriptive words in a row before you even found out what they were describing. So I do wish that those would have been toned down a bit, but still it's wasn't worth losing a star over. Overall if you are looking for a steamy romance with a great plot and some suspense then this is the book for you!

Wow! Romance that sizzles and suspense that keeps you turning pages~ I was captivated by this book from the first page. Jackson and Michaela are great characters. Michaela is a very strong woman and I had to admire her from the very beginning when she "picks up" Jackson in the hotel bar even that took a lot of nerve and then she manages to start a whole new life away from her father, he is just evil. Jackson is just enough of a "damaged" hero to make you want to kiss and make it all better for him. I would have gladly taken Michaela's place! I can see more stories coming from Ms. Covington there are a couple of secondary characters who really need their story told (hint,hint) she has a winner here and I can't wait to see what comes next!

Doesn't every girl fantasize about an anonymous pick up in a bar that leads to an unforgettable evening of passion?  This is what Michaela gets when she picks up Jackson at  the Jefferson Hotel..  Their encounter became a one night stand that both of them remembered and longed for more.  When they meet again, Jackson is asked by her controlling father to protect her from a stalker.  The Governor dangles a special prize in from of Jackson to get him to do what he wants.  Michaela, tired of her father's manipulations, has decided to create her own life.  As Jackson and Michaela work together to find her stalker, the attraction between the two grows and turns into the HEA that we all fantasize about.  There is some plot twists concerning the stalker but they just add to the story.  A very enjoyable read and a perfect introduction to a new series that includes stories about all 4 Boys from Elliott.

Author: Robin Covington Published By: Entangled Publishing Age Recommended: Adult Reviewed By: Arlena Dean Book Blog For: GMTA Rating: 5 Review: "A Night of Southern Comfort" by Robin Covington was a wonderful romantic read that was indeed enjoyed. Sexy, fast paced, great hero and heroine was all in this wonderful read. Truly Jackson was a person with some flaws but a hulk... proved to be a perfect match for Michaela. Michaela was a character with the ability to stand up for what she wanted. I found "A Night of Southern Comfort" was somewhat predictable but will a good read and the ending only saying OMG good! Now, as this storyline goes...Michaela is being stalked ...will Jackson be able to aid her...you will find out by picking up "A Night of Southern Comfort" to find out. Be ready for a quick read that you will not be able to put down and some twist only to give you a good fun read that I would highly recommend to you.

Kayla should have made him wait a little. Men really are simple creatures.
