Overview

Savvy, hard-riding, rule-breaking—they'll go anywhere and do anything it takes to protect and serve. But this U. S. Marshal has just met his match—and playing for keeps is one sizzling game. . .

Getting saved from disaster by a handsome stranger—Harper Allen has no problem with that. But when he leaves without a word or a clue to his real identity, the newbie reporter writes it off as the best one-night-stand she'll ever have. Until a year later, when Harper comes face to face with the man assigned to hide her from a senator's killer. . .

Galen Kelly hasn't forgotten a single sensual minute of his night with Harper . . . or that she betrayed him. With the FBI also on their trail, he's got to pretend he's never met her or risk both their lives. But as danger closes in, Galen may not be able to protect himself from taking the biggest risk of all. . .

Baxter’s debut romantic suspense, set in Portland, Ore., pairs U.S. Marshal Galen Kelly and reporter Harper Allen in a steamy one-night stand that ends in misunderstanding when Galen reads a text from Harper’s ex-boyfriend. One year later, Harper witnesses a senator’s murder and Galen is assigned to guard her until she can testify. Though Harper has carried a torch for Galen, he pretends he doesn’t remember her, both because admitting personal involvement would require him to drop the case and because he still feels betrayed. However, he can’t resist keeping tabs on her even when he’s off-duty. Their estrangement continues until Harper confronts him and Galen realizes he wants her more than he fears betrayal. Meanwhile, Harper inveigles Galen into helping her investigate the senator’s portentous last words, which puts them both in greater danger. Galen’s unprofessional behavior and Harper’s risk-taking are implausible, but readers who care more about wit than plot will appreciate the snappy dialogue. Agent: Natanya Wheeler, Nancy Yost Literary Agency. (Sept.)

3.5 Stars I have mixed feelings about this one. In general, I liked the story and the characters. The story is of two people who meet under unusual circumstances, have one night, separate, and are reunited once again through unusual circumstances. The actual plot kept my attention until the end and I started getting frustrated. Harper is a political news reporter who thinks she pretty good at her job, but there were a few times that she was just downright ridiculous about things (view spoiler). And I have no idea how Galen kept his job by some of the decisions he made. Of course they're pretty hot together and I'm really happy with the ending. Overall I enjoyed the book for the entertainment and I'll most definitely read the next in the series. Thanks to Netgalley for the ARC.

After an uncharacteristic one night stand, Harper Allen and Galen Kelly have an amazing connection. But misunderstandings have Galen walking away. After a year in Paris, he's back in the US working for the Marshall service and his first protective detail is none other than Harper. This is a fantastic read and I recommend it to everyone! The characters are fun, the banter hilarious, and you can just feel the chemistry. Its a great story that keeps you turning the page. I can't wait for the next book in this new series.

Very well written

It was a decent read, but I found lot of the dialog was more in tune to YA except for the more explicit sex scenes. I found the H and h juvenile. Galen and Harper reacted to each other more like teenage crushes having secrets but never revealing them while a killer is after her. As a top agent in the U.S. Marshals service and a political journalist, I felt that there should have been more maturity with the main characters.

One Night More is the first in Mandy Baxter’s new US Marshall’s series.  The suspense is well-written and the overarching story engaging.  The relationship between the hero and heroine is predicated on a big misunderstanding that should have been resolved early in the novel with a simple conversation.  With that minor exception this is a solid first effort at romantic suspense and I look forward to the next book in the series.

~Reviewed by ANN & posted at Under the Covers Book Blog Mandy Baxter kickstarts her U.S. Marshals series with a hot romp in the sack between her U.S. Marshal hottie, Galen Kelly and journalist heroine, Harper Allen. The night is filled with explosive chemistry but once the morning light comes, the flame is quick to burn out when Galen needs to leave for an assignment. A year has passed and when an incident involving a well-known senator and Harper makes the news, Galen is recruited to protect her from the killer. Though both remember their night together with intense vividness, Galen pretends to not remember because it would put his job at stake and he isn’t willing to allow anyone, not even his best friend, Landon to watch over Harper. She means too much to him to do that. However, Harper isn’t the frail little being that Galen makes her out to be. She doesn’t need protecting, though it’s probably wise that she stays behind closed doors. But Harper has a mind of her own, which definitely makes Galen’s job more difficult. I LOVED Harper. I found that her reactions to a lot of the suspenseful events in this book to be fun and endearing and quite realistic actually. Nothing seemed too over the top and I like that about Baxter’s writing quite a bit. Everything has a logical approach and as a result, I think it makes this first book a strong one to start with. The beginning is quite easy-going as Baxter sets up the scene in the first 20% of the book. While in the end, I could understand why that initial meeting and first sexual encounter was needed to be shown rather than told in the beginning, it did feel a little bit too relaxed. I much preferred when the book hit the 20% mark as the author really sets the book into motion and we finally get Galen and Harper together again. I think it would have also made it easier for readers to understand why Galen acted the way he did when he saw and recognized Harper after a year had passed instead of getting frustrated with their communication error. Yet, nevertheless, I was completely sold on them by the end. The U.S. Marshals series definitely takes a more Contemporary Romance approach with several good suspense aspects that kick things up a notch. If you’re a fan of Julie James’ FBI/US Attorney series, then you’ll definitely enjoy Baxter’s debut into the genre. ONE NIGHT MORE is a delightful dance of suspense and steamy romance. *ARC provided by author
