Overview

In Sugarland, Detective Taylor Kayne is always ready with quick wit and a quicker smile. But he’s about to meet a woman who will make him want to take his sweet time....

Taylor is a laid-back, smart-aleck kind of lawman. He’s also a man’s man, as well as every woman’s private fantasy. But years ago, he was part of a botched hostage situation that ended with him being hailed as a tough-as-nails hero—even though the pain, fear, and shame from that terrible day still haunt his every moment.

Cara Evans couldn’t care less about Taylor’s pain. In the moment he became a so-called hero, she lost someone she dearly loved. Yet neither of them is prepared for the instant, undeniable attraction that flares between them—or the danger that’s soon hot on their heels.

In the second of Davis’s Sugarland Blue romantic suspense series (after Sworn to Protect), Det. Taylor Kayne has taken refuge in the Tennessee town of Sugarland after a brutal, bloody hostage situation in Los Angeles left him haunted by nightmares and guilt. Purple-tressed, take-no-nonsense rocker Cara Evans considers Taylor responsible for the death of her sister, who was one of the hostages, so she takes her band to Sugarland, seeking revenge. Happily for a book heavy on scorching-hot erotic scenes, Cara soon decides she would rather bed Taylor than destroy him. Taylor finds it hard to trust her, however, when an old friend of hers is killed and he discovers the dead man’s phone in Cara’s closet. The book rapidly shifts from steamy sex to suspense and action, distracting from prose that’s occasionally as purple (“The kiss of a starving man, too long denied”) as Cara’s hair. Agent: Roberta Brown, Brown Literary Agency. (Dec.)

## Wow. So much better than the first one "Sworn to Protect". The romance and the suspense were interwoven perfectly in this book. I liked that the heroine was a rock singer and a bartender with a big heart. And the hero Taylor? Mmmmmm, yes. He was 'fine'. And what a fabulous ending. Thanks Ms. Davis, for taking the time to wrap things up beautifully. What a treat for your readers. Even though this book is part of a series, it stands alone perfectly and I highly recommend it.

~Reviewed by ANGELA & posted at Under the Covers Book Blog While the beginning had its slow spots, the ending had heart stopping scenes. This second installment of Sugarland Blue is about Shane Ford’s partner, Detective Taylor Kayne. If you read the first installment, these two has quite a bit of reputation with crime fighting. Well, it’s come back to bite Taylor in the butt. Someone is after him and is hurting everyone he cares about, including the new gal in his life, Cara. I like Taylor and Cara’s story. The fact that they were both adults and acted like it was a plus. There was no angst between them, in fact, their feelings were clear. There was a conflict in the past that prevented them from being together but they both knew what they wanted from the start. Of course, Ms. Davis will not forget to put a bit of flare to this couple’s relationship. Just like her other novels, this couple has a couple of steamy scenes. I love that Ms. Davis had brought them together by their mutual concern for Blake, whom I totally adore. I think this teen along with Shane’s godson Drew has a lot of potential of getting their own series or book someday. Ms. Davis did a great job with an explosive ending. The emotional, suspenseful and action filled ending had me at the edge of my seat. And the scene between Shayne and Taylor as well as Cara and Taylor at the very end were pretty intense. Overall another great read from Ms. Davis. I can’t wait to read more of Sugarland Blue’s adventure. Review provided by publisher
