From the author of the Firefighters of Station Five novels...

Sugarland loves their men in blue, especially Detective Shane Ford. But Shane’s mission to protect and to serve has just gotten personal....

Detective Shane Ford, Sugarland’s favorite cop, has been blindsided by the sudden death of his best friend, NFL star Brad Cooper, and by becoming the legal guardian of Brad’s son, Drew—a bitter, angry sixteen-year-old with a dangerous secret. Shane is determined to pry the truth from Drew, but he manages only to alienate him—and winds up going head-to-head with Juvenile Officer Daisy Callahan, whose job is to protect the teen’s best interests.

Shane has always been drawn to Daisy’s beauty and strength, but he’s determined not to allow their intense attraction to interfere with his duty ever again. It’s a vow that will prove difficult to keep, as the realities of Shane and Daisy’s blossoming love and their growing bond with the grieving teen propel Shane headlong into danger for the new family he has sworn to protect.

Editorial Reviews

Publishers Weekly
Davis’s new Sugarland Blue series, a spinoff of the Firefighters of Station Five series, features detectives from the Sugarland, Tenn., police department. In the strong series launch, Det. Shane Ford can’t forget his brief affair with fellow officer Daisy Callahan. Though hurt and betrayed by his rejection, Daisy doesn’t hesitate to offer Shane support when his best friend, NFL star Brad Cooper, is found dead from a suspected drug overdose, and Shane becomes the guardian of Brad’s 16-year-old son, Drew. As Daisy helps Shane and Drew cope with Brad’s death, the attraction between Shane and Daisy ignites, and she must decide whether she can trust Shane not to break her heart again. Daisy’s independence and tough nature cover a heart of gold, and her romantic interludes with Shane reveal hidden depths of his character beneath the surface machismo. Explicit erotic scenes and the mystery behind Brad’s death make this a satisfying, fast-paced read. Agent: Roberta Brown, the Brown Literary Agency. (May)
