Cassie Jonsson is a pretty blonde police officer in the small town of Winslow. She has never traveled and has given up on love, settling for an affair with a married co-worker. As the only woman, she is often given the odd jobs, in this case checking out an old house the locals believe is haunted because the owner hung himself in the barn. The McAllister house is indeed haunted, but not by a ghost. Prophet is a living, breathing, ruggedly handsome former vet, a drifter whose life is in limbo. He awakens something primal in Cassie, a boundless desire that blinds her to the dangers both psychological and physical of bedding a stranger, even one as beautiful as Prophet.

A sizzling story filled with "why nots?" This whole book was a different kind of impulsive ride. Cassie, a police officer, stumbles upon a trespassing drifter who changes her life forever. While I must admit that the premise is very intriguing, I couldn't believe some of the decisions Cassie made! Yes, I understand this is a fictional novel and anything can happen, but maybe something like getting to know the stranger a little more before she engaged in the...well..."activities" she consented to would have made me feel a little better about the book. Aside from that, Galia's imagery was great and the love scenes were steamy. Together, Cassie and Prophet made a lot of "hey, why not?" decisions, right up until the Happy For N0w ending. I wouldn't mind knowing what happened with these two! ***I received a copy of this book in exchange for an honest review***
