Overview

Claire Parks fought her way back from the brink of death and now it's time to celebrate and paint the town red--or at least pink. Letting herself be seduced by a rugged lumberjack who exudes sex appeal seems like just what the doctor ordered. Little does Claire know that the smoldering stranger is undercover police detective Bud Morrison.

When Claire's life is threatened, Bud leaps into action. Rescuing women is what Bud does best and he pulls out all the stops. He knows just how to protect her, and he'll do whatever it takes, including keeping her under lock and key. But Claire has fought too hard for life to let herself be locked away and treated like blown glass.

She's flesh and blood, and all woman. Bud will have to meet her halfway if he wants to make her his, and if they're to have a hope in hell of outrunning the danger at their heels...

Midnight Run is a scintillating but heart warming tale of a woman (Claire) who has conquered cancer and now wants to live her life to the fullest. She meets this take charge, sexy, very caring man and they fall very much in love. She is inexperienced as far as physical relationships go and he changes her world in terms of romance and sex. Along the way she falls into danger and that is another exciting aspect of the story. Characters from the first book in this series "Midnight Man" (also fantastic) weave in and out of this book and provide interest also. I read all three of the series (the latest being "Midnight Angel" and loved them all. Now I am addicted to reading Lisa Marie Rice's books, she's a wonderful writer. Don't miss this series and I recommend reading the books in the right order although each one stands alone.

It's also the 1st one I ever read by her and is the story that made her one of my favorite authors. Claire has been sick her whole and has decided that its time to experience life and lose her virginity. She is dumped by her friend at a night club and Bud comes to her rescue. They spend a few days trapped in her house because of snow and fall in love. Romantica type story with explicit sex.

Claire has been very ill for years, now she's well again and wants to start living her life. She meets uncover police Lt. 'Bud' Morrison while he is working undercover at a trendy but outrageous nightclub. He rescues her from what could be disaster at the club and is determined to treat her like the 'princess' as he offers to take her home. Though he tries to convince himself that he can walk away, he finds himself unable to leave this innocent and beautiful woman. Through some dangerous situations and some heart wrenching situations, Bud & Claire find a sensuous and soulful bond that is so strong and potent, that nothing can keep them apart. If you enjoy lots of sexy romance and a hero that curls your toes, you must read this!!

Claire Parks wants to enjoy her freedom. Her illness kept her isolated from life. She's cheated death and she ready to experience love and desire. She feels that she's the oldest living virgin. Now she's at a trendy dance club to check out the action. Bud Morrison is there looking for his informant. He's a Portland Homicide detective. He can't keep his eyes off Claire. When he sees that she's being hassled by a lowlife, he steps in and rescues her. Their attraction is powerful and they become lovers. Can Claire and Bud find happiness together? They are from different worlds. Claire is determined to experience all that life holds. She's gentle and caring, but she won't let herself be pampered and protected. Bud loves her with every fiber of his being. He wants her to be safe. When She's in danger, he gets carried away. I loved Bud's alpha attitude, but I wanted him to see the real woman and help her stand up for herself. The story was filled with suspense and passion. The twists and turns kept me on the edge of my seat. I loved that Suzanne and John from Midnight Man made an appearance. Lisa Marie Rice is an excellent author. I enjoyed Claire and Bud's story. I received a copy of this book in exchange for an honest and unscripted review.

I love the Midnight Series! Midnight Run intertwines with Midnight Man. Bud is the police lieutenant who is friends with John Harrington that you first met in Midnight Man. Claire is a 25 year old woman who is just now experiencing life as she was very ill when she was. Lucky for Claire when she is left stranded at the bar, it is Bud that comes to her rescue. She decides to let him be THE ONE not knowing exactly who Bud is and not realizing that their paths have crossed before. Claire is also close friends with Suzanne from Midnight Man, and when Suzanne’s life it put into danger, Claire’s is too and this causes some serious issues for her and Bud. The question is can she get past this, do they have what it takes? I love Bud and Claire together!
