Overview

What happens when the president's daughter and her sexy Secret Service agent find themselves snowbound? A little cabin fever, some serious forbidden attraction, and Various States of Undress …

When Carolina Fulton, daughter of the President of the United States, dumps her cheating fiancé, she knows she needs a break from life in Washington. Spending some quality alone time in her family's Wyoming cabin seems like a perfect escape—except for the hot Secret Service agent who shadows her every move. Miles away from civilization, Carolina quickly realizes that ignoring the smoky eyes, carved chin, and mile-wide pair of shoulders is going to require more than a little self-control.

Elite agent Jake Baxter knows better than to develop feelings for his clients. After all, he's not being paid to fantasize about running his fingers through Carolina's dark hair, kissing her senseless, or waking up next to her petite, curvy body. But as a blizzard rages outside their all-too-cozy cabin, Jake knows he has to put the freeze on this attraction, in case his job—or his heart—is suddenly laid on the line.

“Laura Simcox’s debut is endearingly sweet and sexy.”
Confessions from Romaholics
MAJORLY HOT and SUPER SWEET…
Cocktails and Books
I highly anticipate the rest of the series, and will be watching this author. She’s done something that hasn’t been done in a while, she allowed me to get completely lost in the world she’s created.
Bookworm Betties
A well written, fun romp with minimum drama, very little angst, lots of laughs and so sooo sexy.
Emily Jane's Book Corner
From the second I started this book, I was hooked.

…easy to get lost in and the little bits of humor and playfulness balanced perfectly with the sweet and sexy.

This is a great book for a cold winter's evening or any time of year. Carolina and Jake sure heat up that cabin in the Wyoming woods! Carolina Fulton is still getting used to her father being the President of the United States, when she gets a devastating shock from her fiance. So she decides to take a break from her master's program and head to the family's cabin in Wyoming for a chance to recharge and reevaluate her life. Luckily for her, a sudden blizzard strands her in the cabin with only her super sexy secret service agent, Jake Baxter, to keep her company. She's supposed to be working on her photography, and Jake is supposed to be on guard 24/7. Only trouble is, Jake is the only thing she wants to focus on, but he may have too many layers of protection around his own heart.

Laura Simcox's Various States of Undress: Carolina is a fun, flirty, and touching read! ****1/2 Various States of Undress: Carolina is a fun and flirty read - plus it also points out how some of us may become frozen in our lives - living out dreams of others instead of our own. Oh, that sounds a bit serious, right? Well, yes, there are serious bits to this story of a President's daughter on the run from the paparazzi with her very own Secret Service bodyguard. (And who wouldn't want this agent guarding their body!) I totally "got" Carolina. From the moment she went in search of her wayward fiancé, because she needed support - or a public glad-hander - to get through a party filled with perfectly coiffed and elegantly dressed DC denizens. I knew who she was. She was me. Well, sort of me. In the best way. So for a little over an hour, I settled in to her and Jake's - and just enjoyed the heck out of it. Carolina and Jake are obviously attracted to one another and their romance - a foregone conclusion. Will it work out? Well that is the question as Jake seems to honorable and married to his career to ever give it up - even for Carolina. While Carolina seems able to grow and see herself a bit more clearly, she's still vulnerable, especially after discovering her fiancé providing behind-closed-doors service to a White House receptionist. Simcox shares this story with humor and heart - and it's one that I recommend without reservation. If you're looking for a fun, sweet romance with more than a bit of heat and heart - Laura Simcox's Various States of Undress: Carolina is the book for you. Grab it this week as it will still be on sale for $0.99. I've already pre-ordered the next two books in the series that feature Carolina's sisters: Various States of Undress: Virginia (pub date: Oct 7, 2014) and Various States of Undress: Georgia (pub date: Jan 6, 2015

Laura Simcox was a new author to me when I picked up this book, but I have to tell you, she's on the keeper shelf now! Though this isn't an insanely sexy book, the romance is what really stands out - and that's just wonderful. These characters felt real and their connection was instant. I loved the chemistry and the humor. Can't wait for Virginia's story!
