She's on a mission of vengeance against the man who destroyed her life. Discovering there are more victims only strengthens her resolve. But one thing can weaken it-a Marine who wants to keep her safe, and doesn't care how he accomplishes it.
A woman on a mission...
Maddie Baker has spent years seeking vengeance against the abuser who destroyed her life. When her search leads her to a small town outside Atlanta, she learns of another missing teenager. Nothing will stand in the way of her mission, including a jackass of an ex-soldier who reawakens emotions best left to die.
A man on the hunt...
Jack Quinn learned to recognize trouble in the Marines, and he sees it in Maddie the minute he lays eyes on the pretty, sexy bartender. Her secrets may be hidden deep, but secrets are his specialty, and peeling away her barriers only makes him want her more. He'll do whatever it takes for her to trust him, with her body and her heart.
An old threat whose time has come...
Staying hidden kept Maddie safe, but the search for justice brings her into the open and face-to-face with her treacherous past. Risking her life is one thing, but risking her heart is another. In love and in danger, she must trust Jack to lead her-and pray they both come out alive.

Love this series.
Maddie is on the run from her violently abusive and sadistic husband trying to save a young girl from being lost forever and seeking to discover the evidence to take down the evil man she married in innocence. Jack and his partner Conn provide security for those unable to protect themselves and seek the evidence to bring down evil. When Maddie starts working at their local favorite bar, she catches Jack's interest. She trusts no one with her secrets, but Jack wants to get around her defenses and show her she no longer needs to be alone. Excellent second book to this series which gives the same high risk danger and deep abiding love that makes this romantic suspense a great read. Hard topics treated seriously and with compassion and respect for those suffering from abuse and their partners helping them.
Book two in the Southern Nights Series, Trust Me is just as gripping as the first one. Maddie was in a horribly abusive marriage. Beaten, raped, and treated as a slave by her husband, she escaped and tries to search for a missing girl. Jack is co-owner of a security firm and he is intrigued by the new bartender, Maddie. He sees past her “too good to be true” act and can’t stop himself from wanting her. Their chemistry is combustible and intense, creating an amazing amount of sexual tension. Talk about HOT! I really enjoyed this book in the series. Maddie and Jack’s pasts create so much conflict, making their intensity that much “MORE”. Jack is a strong alpha – having been a soldier who is used to giving orders. Maddie doesn’t take orders, anymore, so their push/pull relationship is full of angst….LOVE IT! I really love this series and can’t wait to see what book 3 has to hold! *I received a complimentary copy of this book in exchange for an honest review

I received a copy of this book in exchange for an honest review. I like that Maddie was able to be involved in bringing down her abuser and that she was able to get closure. I'm glad they were able to take out the trash. Recommendation: Possible triggers for those who have suffered abuse. This is a darker read. I'm enjoying this series, looking forward to more.
Again, I was very happy with the 2nd book in this series! I thought the first one was intense! The 2nd is more! The things Maddie had been through were believable and how Jack handled her just melted my heart! They were the perfect compliment to each other and had a sizzling chemistry that could not be denied! Reading this made me want to wrap my arms around Maddie and protect her! Excellent story and can't wait for more!
When Maddie married David Reed she didn't know that he was really a monster. He may have been a big time lawyer in the real world but at home he thought he was the master of everyone, including the servants and his wife. Living in the Reed household was like going back to the civil war times with the way David acted and treated everyone. So when Maddie had had enough, she runs away and keeps moving so he doesn't find her. When she ends up in a small town in Georgia working as a bartender, she is a tough one and will kick anyone's butt when needed. She has toughened herself up or so she thought. That is until she meets Jack. A guy at the bar who seems to want to eat her alive. They are drawn to each other but both try to fight the feelings. While Jack isn't looking for love, Maddie knows she can't trust anyone, especially Jack. She will learn that Jack is not what he seems and he is the one person that she should trust. Can Jack help Maddie overcome her past? Can Maddie finally learn to trust again? This is another great story and the series gets better with each addition. I can't wait for the next one. **Copy provided by the author in exchange for my honest review**
