NAMED ONE OF THE BEST BOOKS OF THE YEAR BY LIBRARY JOURNAL

RITA finalist and New York Times bestselling author Ruthie Knox’s Camelot series heats up in this sizzling eBook original novel, featuring two headstrong souls who bump heads—and bodies—as temptation and lust bring nothing but delicious trouble.
 
An accomplished lawyer and driven single mother, Ellen Callahan isn’t looking for any help. She’s doing just fine on her own. So Ellen’s more than a little peeved when her brother, an international pop star, hires a security guard to protect her from a prying press that will stop at nothing to dig up dirt on him. But when the tanned and toned Caleb Clark shows up at her door, Ellen might just have to plead the fifth.
 
Back home after a deployment in Iraq and looking for work as a civilian, Caleb signs on as Ellen’s bodyguard. After combat in the hot desert sun, this job should be a breeze. But guarding the willful beauty is harder than he imagined—and Caleb can’t resist the temptation to mix business with pleasure. With their desires growing more undeniable by the day, Ellen and Caleb give in to an evening of steamy passion. But will they ever be able to share more than just a one-night stand?

Praise for Along Came Trouble
 
“Knox’s Camelot, Ohio, books showcase just what this author does best, create love stories that feature real people in situations that readers can understand and with which they can empathize. . . . Additionally, she writes absolutely smoking-hot love scenes! Her heroes and her heroines redeem and save each other. Love doesn’t conquer all, but it makes life a whole lot sweeter.”Library Journal

“One of the reasons I so like [Ruthie Knox’s] work is because [her] heroines are women I personally can relate to. . . . I’ve read Along Came Trouble twice and though I liked it on the first pass, I really liked it on the second. It’s a smart, challenging, sexy, well-written book.”—Dear Author
 
“Knox writes incredible romance, and this one is no exception. Readers will be mesmerized by the complex relationships woven into her tale. A fascinating hero who defines the word sexy, a heroine who is extremely likable and pitch-perfect dialogue all make this entry in the Camelot series an absolute must-read.”RT Book Reviews
 
“Contemporary romance readers will not want to miss the romantic, heart-felt emotion along with all the sexy, steamy goodness Ruthie Knox creates within the pages of About Last Night.”—Fiction Vixen
 
“A great new voice in contemporary romance . . . hilarious, heartfelt, and hot.”New York Times and USA Today bestselling author Kristan Higgins
 
“I’ll read anything by Ruthie Knox—her books are always sexy, funny, beautifully poignant, and honest.”—Molly O’Keefe, bestselling author of Crazy Thing Called Love
 
Includes a special message from the editor, as well as excerpts from these Loveswept titles: How to Misbehave, Flirting with Disaster, and About Last Night.

Editorial Reviews

Library Journal
Jamie Callahan is a singing sensation à la Justin Timberlake. His sister, Ellen, lives in Camelot, along with his nephew. Jamie fell in love with Ellen's next-door neighbor Carly and then broke up with her. Paparazzi madness ensued. Caleb Clark, the bodyguard Jamie sends to protect Ellen, turns out to be more of a threat to the boundary issues left over from her ex-husband than any of the photographers staking out her lawn. Then her brother comes back to town to reromance Carly, and Caleb is suddenly the best ally Ellen ever had. VERDICT A terrific read for anyone with a soft spot for bodyguard romances and a delightful example of the kind of contemporary romance that Knox has made her own. Highly recommended. [Xpress Reviews, 1/11/13.]—Marlene Harris, Seattle P.L.

Meet the Author

New York Times bestselling author Ruthie Knox writes contemporary romance that’s sexy, witty, and angsty—sometimes all three at once. Her debut novel, Ride with Me, is probably the only existing cross-country bicycling love story. She followed it up with About Last Night, a London-based romance whose hero has the unlikely name of Neville, and then Room at the Inn, a Christmas novella—both of which were finalists for the Romance Writers of America’s RITA Award. Her four-book series about the Clark family of Camelot, Ohio, has won accolades for its fresh, funny portrayal of small-town Midwestern life. Ruthie also writes New Adult romance as Robin York. She moonlights as a mother, Tweets incessantly, and bakes a mean focaccia. She’d love to hear from you, so visit her website and drop her a line.

    M

    More bragging plot spoilers going about their free book from the publisher for their * honest* review. That makes me sick. Does the publisher know you reveal the entire book for future readers? If i were the publisher i would sue you. You need to learn to write a review. Read the others here. They are concise and to the point. If you want to reveal every detail, take it to a blog site with other plot spoilers, but stop doing it here.

    Review: Along Came Trouble

    I absolutely freaking adore this series. It is cute, lighthearted, and has just enough angst to keep you interested but not so much that you are a sobbing shell of your former self when you are done.
    It has taken me so much longer to get through this book than I expected. June has been a VERY busy month for me and my reading has been all over the place. This should not reflect on the book at all. I finished the last half this evening (Amazing what you can do with the significant other gone and the TV off!) and spent almost the whole entire time with that tight band of emotions you get in your chest when you read something particularly good. It's due to steamy scenes, angsty realizations, momentary drama, and the Happily Ever After. I love getting that feeling. That feeling is a good book feeling.
    I did not realize that Along Came Trouble happens about ten years AFTER Amber and Tony's book, How to Misbehave. but the timing totally pans out. I can't wait to dive in to the next one...Flirting with Disaster.
    Caleb Clark is a freaking book heartthrob. Ex-military, tall, muscled, polite, capable, caring and always has a smile on his gorgeous face. I'm picturing a crazy blend of Vin Diesel and Josh Duhamel. Not quite sure how that would work, maybe Josh's face with Vin's body. Don't get me wrong, I love Vin's face too, but the description brings this blending to mind. Either way - Great Book Boyfriend material. Ellen is a tough, capable, intelligent single mom and is twin sister to heartthrob and pop star Jamie. And so the story begins...
    If you want a feel good tale of romance and real (ish) life, then I highly recommend this series.

    2.75 stars After reading the blurb for this book, I was so exci

    2.75 stars

    After reading the blurb for this book, I was so excited to start it. It seemed like something I would love. The tough ex-military man, the stubborn woman, mutual attraction and a conflict. What's not to love?!

    Turns out that there were some things that I didn't love.

    First, what's Ellen's problem? I understand that she went through a difficult time in her previous relationship and lost herself, but that didn't justify treating Caleb the way she did. She was rude and thoughtless and I just didn't like her much. There. I said it, I didn't like her. I'm all for strong willed, independent women, but she took it a bit too far. She was wrong every step of the way and Caleb just kept giving her chances to make up for it.

    Second, can someone please explain to me how Caleb, a level headed man used to thinking things through and analyzing situations from every angle, can fall in love with Ellen within a couple of days? Lust, sure! Who wouldn't like to scratch an itch. But love? Nope, couldn't understand it, didn't see the connection.

    Third, where was the connection? I could easily see the sexual tension. Hell, Ellen hadn't had sex in a while and neither had Caleb. But where's the getting to know you part. Again, this wasn't Caleb's fault, Ellen didn't help one bit.

    What I did enjoy was Jamie's story. Now that was a fun and touching story. Okay, I'm not saying the Ellen and Caleb's story was a loss. Actually, I enjoyed Caleb very much, especially his interactions with his family and the emotions he displayed. And yes, I admit, Ellen sort of, kinda redeemed herself a little bit there in the end, but I still don't like her. There. I said, again. Oh, yes, Henri was adorable too!

    Although this is the second book in the Camelot series, it can be read as a stand alone. I have to admit that I will be picking up Katie's story, Flirting With Disaster. She was a treat to read and what I read of her story has me intrigued.

    This is the first book by Ruthie Knox that I've read and since every other review I've read of her books are singing her praises, I will give her books another try.

    Hilarously romantic!

    I loved all the charactors. I loved all the drama and romance as well. But I loved Nana best! 'I'm having hot flashes' the impromtu concert scene was just hilariously funny & romantic. Can't wait to read more from this small village in Ohio.

    I enjoyed Ellen and Caleb and thought they had great chemistry. I did think Ellen fought off accepting help a little too hard and was happy when she finally accepted Caleb.

    So, no spoilers. I enjoyed this book and look forward to reading more by this author.

    Enjoyable

    Light romance, believable though flawed and troubled characters, preposterous plot, some snappy dialogue. Way too much unnecessary-to-the-plot explicit sex.

    Didn't care for Ellen or Carly's characters

    Didn't care for Ellen or Carly's characters much. A lot of silly resistance to nice guys. It went on and on until they realized they were being unreasonable but in the process it just got boring in my opinion. Maybe if there was only one character playing the game instead of two?

    Very Good!

    Can't give this one 5 stars because I found it easy to put it down and go back to... It was interesting and I already have the next in the series pre-ordered... Somehow this author just seems to drag out a good story a bit too much for me... I much prefer a book that I can't bear to set aside even for a minute... Good story, good characters, but I just can't go the extra star... Sorry...
