Overview

To Love, Honor, and Protect

Detective Clay Blackthorne has his hands full when he promises to safeguard an old college pal’s sister without letting her know what he’s up to. He never imagines that lively Marisol Calderon will knock his socks off and put a ring on his finger—and all at his suggestion! Their marriage of convenience is meant to protect her and Clay doesn’t plan on being hitched for long to the tempting beauty. But the honeymoon sure feels real to him…

See the WILD FOR YOU video book trailer:

Sassy Marisol is used to doing whatever she wants—and right now her plan is to shake up the hot detective’s hard-edged demeanor. But the fun turns to danger when a mystery stalker bent on marrying her marks her as his prey. Temporarily becoming Clay’s wife seems like a practical way to thwart the stalker. But as passion ignites and Marisol falls for the tender heart buried beneath the tough detective’s chest, Clay’s true identity is revealed and she begins to wonder who—if anyone—she can trust…

    Sultry, sexy and satisfying!

    Marisol is an independent woman who doesn't like to be told what to do, and Clay, sent by her brother to protect her from anonymous threats, is a man who likes to take charge. The two continually butt heads as Clay tries to discover who's after Marisol and why, but tensions, frustrations and close proximity also lead them into some steamy situations and feelings both try their hardest to resist. The tropical Miami setting adds to the sultry atmosphere, with a touch of Latin spice! Their story is alternately funny, sexy, scary and poignant, and will ultimately make you sigh. I'm looking forward to reading the in the series, Sold On You. I hope there will be more!

    Fun, Sexy Romance with Suspense Mixed In!

    I loved this book! The chemistry between the two main characters is sizzling. Marisol, the heroine, is independent and spunky. And Clay, the hero who is trying to protect her from a stalker, is HOT. I wish I knew him in real life! I also liked the suspense in the story -- an overall fun, sexy read!

    Sizzling Romance, A Real Page Turner!

    I loved this fun, suspenseful, and romantic read! Sparks fly between the lively and lovely Marisol and hunky detective Clay Blackthorne. Their heated interactions show that opposites certainly do attract! Wild for You has just the right amount of mystery and chemistry to keep you turning the pages...I can't wait to read more of Sophia Knightly's books, and already read Sold On You Too!

    One Exciting, Sexy Romantic Suspense!

    Sophia Knightly does not disappoint with her sexy Miami romance Wild For You! The fun loving Marisol is the perfect heroine and her hero, Clay, left me breathless! The mounting suspense kept me guessing until the end. I couldn't put it down. Maggie Dove

    Great Read!

    This was a great book! I loved the suspense of finding out who Marisol's stalker was and I also loved the romance between Marisol and Clay. As a reader, my favorite part was not finding out who the stalker was until the end of the book. No hints were dropped as to who the culprit was and most authors drop subtle hints to the reader. Now I can't wait to read the story about Marisol's brother, Marcus.

    An excellent romance with a touch of mystery

    Someone is stalking Marisol Calderon and Detective Clay Blackthorne is determined to get to the bottom of it. Even if it means breaking his vow never to get married to protect her. Marisol is full of sass and spunk and won't be so easily controlled by Clay no matter how good his intentions.

    Marisol is easy to like. She's kind, vivacious and talented. Best of all she creatively uses some hair products to get her way. Clay is strong and lethal, making him the perfect alpha hero. The combination of their polar opposite personalities had me chuckling. If you're looking for a feel-good romance with a hint of mystery pick up a copy of Wild For You.

    I enjoyed this book The fact that Marisol is an independent is great but sometimes you have to accept help in some situation and the steamy situations that her and Clay get in and the fact that they eventually fell in love . I love the fact that her brother Marcos cares and loves her so much even though he is over protective..

    fun read

    I wasn't sure how this story would go, but I really had trouble putting it down once I got started. I liked the chemistry between the characters, and enjoyed the story. Highly recommend it, and the sequel as well.

    Read this one before Sold on You!

    What a fun and fast-paced book! It's a great love story with suspense...and the characters -- especially Detective Clay Blackthorne -- wow! Sold on You is Book 2 of this series and I'm loving it too as I read it now.

    No way

    ## I don't understand why the other reviews were so positive. This book was terrible. I couldn't even finish it. The hero was such an ass. Downright mean and rude. And the heroine sounded like she was 16. Yet she was supposed to have an mba. They had zero chemistry! Ugh

    This was the first book that I read by Sophia Knightly, but it will not be my last. I fell in love with Clay and Marisol. She owns a upscale beauty salon, and loves life. He is a detective, who also happens to be her brother's friend. When Marisol lets her brother know that she has a stalker, he gets Clay involved. Not only does he have his hands full with Marisol, his friends realize before he does, that he has fallen for her. A lovely story filled with suspense, romance and humor.

    Not sure

    I enjoyed this book for the most part, though I have to wonder about the intelligence of the characters. A stalker is on the loose, yet she sneaks out and goes alone for a long drive when she gets a little bored, and refuses to follow the advice of those trying to protect her? Same old story of the heroine being so stubborn and independent that she's completely void of common sense. I did like the storyline, and appreciate the lack of typos and editing problems.

    This was a wonderful book, Sophia Knightly never disappoints! This is a sexy and suspenseful love story. I love Marisol and her no nonsense attitude from being an independent woman. Clay and Marisol are perfect for each other. This book had me hooked from the start, and I couldn't read it fast enough. I am so glad that this book is part of a series and I can't wait to read the next book "Sold on You" A Review copy was provided to me in exchange for a fair and honest review.

    Good read.

    A little naughty and a little mystery all rolled into one. Somewhat predicable, but very enjoyable to read. Very lovable characters and a few surprises along the way.

    This book had potential...

    I really wanted to like this book, but it just went too slow and bored me. I'm just glad it didn't cost more than it did. I am over halfway through and will probably just skim the rest of it.
