Live...Laugh...Read...with New York Times-bestselling author Christie Craig....

"Quirky, touching and fun!" -- New York Times Bestselling Author Susan Andersen

Welcome to Precious, Texas, where fistfights serve as dinner theater and fire ants rain from the sky. The locals are usually very friendly, if a bit eccentric. No pictures please, or you may find yourself a guest of the county morgue....

Photojournalist Shala Winters already had her hands full bringing tourism to this backward, podunk town, but her job just got tougher. Pictures can say a thousand words, and one of Shala's is screaming bloody murder. Now she has to entrust a macho, infuriating lawman with her life -- but she'll never trust him with her heart.

Trusted or not, Sky Gomez isn't about to let a killer get his hands on Shala's Nikon -- or any of her more comely assets, for that matter. Her mouth might move faster than a Piney Woods roadrunner, but all he can think about is how good it must taste...and how she'll never escape true love.

BONUS CONTENT:

At the end of the book, get a sneak peek at Christie Craig's newest contemporary romance, BLAME IT ON TEXAS, now available from Forever Books!

C. Hunter!! BORN AT MIDNIGHT, AWAKE AT DAWN, TAKEN AT DUSK and WHISPERS AT MOONRISE are currently available from St. Martin's Griffin wherever books are sold.

I just love Christie Craig's books and Shut up and kiss me is one of my favourites. Whenever I found the time, all I did was read.

Loved this book, although predictable at times with the comedy, it was very funny. I laughed out loud several times for a few minutes as it went on for a couple of pages. Loved the writing in this book. Keep it up Christie! Please, write faster!

All of Christie's book are funny and enjoyable. I will buy all of her books as they come out.

i like mx craig's books (even if the electronic versions are often riddled with mistakes) but this was her weakest effort. Sky Gomez is weirdly contradictory (he's going to stay away, he can't stay away!) that comes off less conflicted and interesting and more like choppy storytelling. Shala Winters is boring mess, she has no personality but for some reason everyone loves her. craig relies way to much on common romance tropes which become repetitive and irritating - how many times can he touch her cheek or lift her chin with two fingers? turns out in this book, too often. secondary plots kept me reading, which is why this is two stars and not one. i hope her next effort is less disappointing.

Sexy, suspense. with unexpected turned. Enough action, twists, and humor to keep the story moving. Really like the characters and look forward to more, especially Lucas. She is a new author for me, but I will definitely be reading more.

I really liked the idea of the book and i LOVED all the characters. It was so funny at a few points! I laughed evey time Jose screwed his life up even more! Nothing good could ever happen to him! That leaves two things then. One, i didnt like the mystery. It started off fine. But it didnt progress at a fast enough rate. Two, the book was slightly long. But that again has to do with the slow mystery subplot. Other than that: great!

All romance. This is the fourth CC book I read. I read all the divorce books. I'm starting to think she has a thing for law enforcement which is fine since I do too. :) good read.

I love Christie Craig's books, and this one was I couldn't put down. I liked the characters and how they mixed and mingled in this book. Some things were very funny, and yet there were some tender moments as well. I will definitely read this one again!

If you are wanting to read a story that is quirky, funny, suspenseful and romantic WITHOUT having a wilting or helpless female or a brooding, grim male then this is the book for you. This book is light without being fluffy but all of the characters have depth. They all have their own foibles and quirks, their beliefs and disbelief's. The story has a background which makes it interesting to read. There are so many characters that I want to know more about - I want their story too; Lucas, Jose and Redfoot to name but three. Very funny, really enjoyed it. Will be looking for more from Christie Craig.

I LOVED THIS BOOK... I am a fan of her YA series and decided to read her adult romance and started with this book. The way that she wrote this is amazing you feel like you are being attacked by Sky's wolves  and you want to scream when Sky hurts her! Sadly there is no book two yet to follow the other characters but there is bonus material on her website that is worth checking out.
