Some Rules Were Made to Be Broken

Photographer Nick Coltrane broke Daisy Parker's heart nine years ago. And now he wants to hire her as his bodyguard. She wants to tell him where he can go, but her fledgling company desperately needs the cash flow. She once broke her own rules, only to watch his sexy self run for the door. Providing round-the-clock protection for him is out of the question . . . right?

Nick needs Daisy around to keep the hired thugs who are out for his blood from actually getting it. If he can make amends for the way he screwed up nine years ago in the process, then so much the better. Except time has done nothing to dull the memory of how Daisy once rocked his world off its axis, and her cocky attitude and mouthwatering curves still have the power to turn his brain to mush.

Now two people who once were friends and used to be lovers will discover whether love and trust can come from a passion that breaks every rule.

Read an Excerpt

nine years ago

Daisy Parker gave a sigh of pleasure as the weight of Nick Coltrane's naked body pressed her into the mattress. Sweat bonded their bodies together, while his muscular arms held her tight. She could hardly believe she'd just surrendered her virginity to him-let alone with such enthusiasm. As he pressed kisses into the side of her neck, her body hummed with little aftershocks of satisfaction. Wrapping her arms around his neck, she stretched with voluptuous delight.

The wedding at Grace Cathedral had been like something out of a fairy tale to Daisy's nineteen-year-old eyes, and Mo and her handsome groom had looked deliriously happy. But when Daisy arrived at the reception at the Mark Hopkins Hotel a few hours ago, she'd had second thoughts about the wisdom of attending.

She didn't belong with the throng of San Francisco's elite that crowded the Peacock Court she never had. Being thrust into their company again had driven home the fact, and she'd planned to leave as soon as she paid her respects to the bride and groom.

Until Nick had swept her off her feet and blown all rational thought clear out of her mind.

She still couldn't believe he'd greeted her like a long-lost friend and ditched the reception line to squire her around. He'd always done such an excellent job of ignoring her that the sudden attention had been like grabbing hold of the business end of a live wire-hot, terrifying, and excitingly disorienting.

There'd been a look in his eyes that she hadn't been able to define: a sense of displacement maybe, an impression of recklessness, for sure. But he'd charmed her and kept her so off balance with his touch-aguiding hand in the small of her back here, long, warm fingers wrapped around her forearm or brushing her bare shoulder there-that she'd told herself it didn't matter. He was a golden-skinned god with flashing white teeth and streaky brown hair, dancing attendance on her, snapping pictures of her from the camera around his neck, leaving her breathless, exhilarated, dizzy.

And that was before the dancing began and she got a taste of being in his arms.

When the lights went low and the music turned slow and torchy, she'd been a goner. He'd held her so closely she'd felt him from chest to knees, and he'd been warm, hard, and very happy to see her, as the old saw went. The next thing she remembered, they were in the hotel elevator and he was kissing her; then they were in this room, on this bed, and her heart was pounding, pounding, pounding, her pulse throbbing in places she hadn't dreamed had a pulse; and he'd been on top of her, inside of her; and just as the slight sting of her hymen rupturing pierced her consciousness, his slow hands and urgent hips had driven her to a place of screaming release.

And all Mama's talk about love finally made sense.

    Great time!

    This book is not full of eloquent writing. That is not why I gave it 5 stars. I was just so fun. I enjoyed the characters and continued to think about them even when I was not reading the book. It was sweet and I had a good time reading the book. Therefore, I gave it 5 stars because I had such a great time reading it.

    great read

    Though Security Specialist Daisy Parker desperately needs the money, she wonders if she is making a huge mistake by agreeing to guard photographer Nick Coltrane. Her mother and his father shared a short ugly marriage, but worse was that night of love they shared before he dumped her as a one-night stand almost a decade ago. <P> During a wedding of the rich and famous, Nick inadvertently took a picture that prominently shows future ambassador Douglass in a compromising position with a female that is not his wife. Douglass sends thugs to obtain the picture, but Nick prefers to sell it to the media in order to obtain cash to help his financially strapped sister. Daisy reluctantly agrees to guard Nick, but neither knew their sexual attraction would explode into a deep love for one another. <P>With her 'baby' novels (see BABY, I'M YOURS and BE MY BABY), Susan Anderson has become a fan favorite for her rousing romantic romps. Her latest tale, BABY, DON'T GO, contains the usual humor, wit, and excitement expected in one of Ms. Anderson's books. The shared past of the lead couple makes their present sizzle with discord yet cannot stop their growing attraction to each other. The support cast adds cause and humor to an entertaining fun to read contemporary romance. <P>Harriet Klausner

    Fun quick read!

    This book was fun to read; I enjoyed the main female character and the way she handled everything. It was funny and yet real. The action plot and romance part were credible. I didn't love the main guy here as much as in her other books, but at least I liked the fact that their relationship wasn't something that happened overnight.

    Meh....

    This book was a re-read. It is okay but I didn't love it. I remembered I thought the same thing the first time I read it too. But it's Susan so ....

    One of my favorites by this author!

    Daisy's mom was married to Nick's dad for a short time many years ago. At his sister's wedding nine years ago Nick took Daisy's virginity. When he suspected his feelings might be a lot deeper than he would have liked, he got scared and bolted (OK, definitely was a jerk!) During those nine years Daisy became a cop, and then started her own security business while Nick became a famous photographer. One day Nick shows up wanting Daisy's protection from someone trying to kill him because of photos he took. Daisy is less than inclined to help him since she's not forgiven him for breaking her heart but needs the business, and potential referrals, so she takes the case. I liked the fact that Nick didn't have a problem with a woman protecting him. Most men would balk at that even though it's done every day Secret Service, FBI, police. He seemed to respect her knowledge, skills and experience. But Nick isn't being totally honest with Daisy and fears that when she finds out, his dreams of a future with her will blow up in his face. And Daisy is trying to hide her feelings and hurt behind a tough exterior.

    Okay for a slow read.

    This one not up to the standard I was used to from Susan. I'd read 2 other books by her and was looking forward to this one with high hopes. I was disappointed. At the end it tried, no cigar!!

    Baby, Don't Go Packs a Funny, Emotional Punch

    Daisy has spiky blonde hair, combat boots and a kick-*** attitude that force their way into the reader's heart from page one. Nick, the man who loved her and left her in the past, isn't any more immune to this incredible lady's charm than the reader. He's willing to learn from his past mistakes and prove to Daisy that he's worth taking a risk on love. These two characters and their friends take hold of the reader's heart and funny bone and don't let go until every scrap of emotion that can be wrung from one, is. If you like fresh stories about real people and heroines that can be both tough and tender, then you won't want to miss reading this book. It's a keeper!
