Overview

"At one time MAD DOG AND ANNIE thought they'd have a future together, but he left town and she married his best friend. Now the sinfully sexy policeman unexpectedly returns and once again looks in her direction. Years of abuse from her soon-to-be-ex have made the single mom wary of love. Well-developed characters, strong emotions and good romantic tension blend beautifully in this first-rate Virginia Kantra offering." –RT Book Reviews

Bad boy Maddox "Mad Dog" Palmer has loved Annie Barclay since they were kids. But when she married his high school teammate, golden boy Rob Cross, Maddox backed off and moved away. Now he's back in town, and Ann is in trouble, threatened by both her abusive ex-husband and the law.

Tender-hearted Ann is fighting for a new life and custody of her young son. She has enough on her plate without a burned out, big city cop reigniting an old flame or reminding her of the girl she used to be. Maddox tempts her beyond her safe boundaries. But can the first man who made Ann feel desire teach her to love again?

Ginny Kantra spins a good tale; very entertaining! The time goes by quickly as her story unfolds.

I enjoyed this one! I believe it may be part of a series but I read it as a stand-alone book. Great, relate-able characters. Loved that Annie's 12 year old son was in the heart of the book and their relationship.

I cannot imagine how anyone can give a 1 star rating to any Kantra book. Her characterization, her sizzling emotional tension, the romantic development are all 5 star. Fabulous writing.
