Overview

A Romance Writers of America RITA Award Finalist by New York Times and USA Today bestselling author, Jane Graves

She doesn't know he's a cop on vacation. He doesn't know she's a wrongly accused fugitive on the run. When the truth comes out, all hell breaks loose!

To escape a big, bad bounty hunter hot on her trail, Renee Esterhaus steps into a country diner and offers John DeMarco a night of unforgettable pleasure if he'll take her back to his cabin immediately. John knows something’s up with the beautiful blonde, but he ignores his cop instincts and takes her up on her offer. When Renee escapes with his car instead, John is furious. Once he grabs her again, he’s determined to haul her to jail, but it isn’t long before he starts to think that maybe she’s innocent after all.

Soon John and Renee are working together to clear her name, which means dodging his all-cop family, dealing with oddball suspects, staying one step ahead of a pissed-off bounty hunter—and trying to pretend they’re not falling in love.

A PERSONAL NOTE FROM JANE GRAVES

I love hanging out with funny people. If you have a sense of humor, come sit next to me, because the best feeling on earth for me is to laugh myself silly. I have several wonderful friends who are so hilarious they make me practically wet my pants. Aside of my occasional need for Depends, I consider their humor to be no less than a gift from God.

Smile and the world smiles with you. Frown, and you’ll clear a room faster than a fire alarm. That's why I love hanging out with funny people, and why I love reading romantic comedy. I love the outrageous humor of Janet Evanovich, the sly wit of Jennifer Crusie, the colorful characterizations of Susan Elizabeth Phillips, and the hilarous plot twists of Stephanie Bond. They're my go-to authors when I'm looking for my funny fix. And over the years, the biggest thrill I've gotten as an author is when readers and reviewers compare my work to these fabulous women.

So what do you find funny in a romantic comedy? Banter between characters who are smart and witty? Out of control situations that escalate wildly beyond a character’s ability to manage them? Fish out of water who have no clue how to behave in the crazy world they find themselves in? You'll see a little bit of all of these things in my romantic comedy.

People who read romantic comedy are usually witty people themselves, so if you and I happen to meet someday, I'm sure you wouldn't have any trouble making me laugh. In the meantime, I hope I become one of the authors you go to when you need your funny fix!

    Let me start by saying this is the first Jane Graves book I've e

    Let me start by saying this is the first Jane Graves book I've ever read and it will certainly not be the last! The description of this book hooked me and I knew I wanted to read it right away, I didn't count on not being able to put it down for four hours (sorry about the late dinner kids :).
    Renee is a fugitive on the run after being wrongly accused of armed robbery, and with an ogre of a bounty hunter on her heels she needs to get away somewhere fast.
    John is a cop on leave just trying to take a break until a hot blonde with deep blue eyes walks into the place he is having dinner and offers him a night of amazing sex, IF he takes her home immediately.His cop instincts kick in, but for some reason he can't turn down this woman...
    After a run in with the bounty hunter, John finds himself saddled with Renee and resigned to turn her in.. but, the more time he spends with her the more he starts to believe in her innocence.. Will he choose to risk his career to help her, or will he turn her in and move on?
    The action begins in the first chapter and will keep you turning the pages quickly until the end. There is passion, emotion and humor all bundled into an amazing package. I laughed, I cried and my heart swelled. I give this book 5 Stars and highly recommend you check it out too!

    Don't miss out on a fun, fast-paced story!

    This lively situational comedy is written with on-target humor and irresistible characters. Ms. Graves delivers mystery, plot twists and romantic sizzle without missing a beat! You'll love the 'supporting cast' just as much as the hero and heroine. Great entertainment!

    It's All Here!

    Everything I look for in a book is in I Got You, Babe - humor, great characters and a writing style that makes it impossible for me to put a book down until the last page is turned. I became emotionally invested in the characters and the plot kept me guessing until the end. The humor is great, and not intrusive and contrived like so many other romantic comedy books I've read recently. I loved the cast of supporting characters, too. I hope several of them get their own books in the future!

    This book is awesome!

    This book is awesome! Do yourself a big favor and get it! You won't regret it! It's a quick read that will have you laughing out loud, rooting for the heroine and even tearing up a little. I hated to see it end! I loved the secondary characters almost as much as I loved the main characters. I can't wait to see more from her! Highly, highly recommended!
