Some women are bad. Some women are a bad idea. The best ones are both...
A former Black Ops assassin, “Lucky” Landon has had more near-misses than a man should ever have. Now he’s out of that business and settling into the simple life in his small hometown. So the last thing he ever expected was to end up at gunpoint. Or that the woman holding the gun would be his best friend’s little sister and Lucky’s on-again/off-again lover.
Taylor Elliott is Trouble, and she likes it that way. And seeing Lucky again? Well, he’s been her dirty little secret for the past few years and everyone knows that secrets in a small town are almost impossible to keep. But Taylor has bigger problems on her plate. Like the local mob boss who wants her dead.
And right now the only thing standing between Trouble and disaster is a hottie named Lucky..
Lucky Landon returns to his hometown in the hopes of settling down and buying his dad's farm. But while helping out a friend doing a little detective work, he runs into the woman he has never forgotten--Taylor Elliott.
Taylor has been keeping a secret from her big brother, Teague. She has been sleeping with his best friend, Lucky Hanover for the past few years. It had never been anything serious. She couldn't afford to let it. But now she is back in town temporarily and Lucky is asking her to stay. He wants to make things permanent.
Will Taylor give up her dreams to run her own spa in Hawaii to be with a man who could possibly break her heart?
Robin Covington creates an interesting story line with murder, mob business and a missing stripper. Her characters are quirky and the sexual attraction between Taylor and Lucky is fantastically hot. There are also some really great secondary characters that had another layer to the story.
Fans of romantic suspense with a love story tangled in the midst will enjoy His Southern Temptation and be back for more of the Boys Are Back In Town Series.
Favorite quote from the book:
The kiss had been way too short, with lots of tongue, a truckload of regret, and the bitter edge of good-bye.
