The last man she ever wanted to see…
Might be the only one who can save her…
Things are about to get HOT in the bayou!

Evie Baker’s luck just ran out. Thanks to an ex-partner with organized crime ties, she’s lost her restaurant, her money, and nearly all her self-respect. Forced to return to her hometown and work as a shampoo girl in her mother’s salon, she doesn’t think her luck can get any worse.

But then someone starts shooting at her, her sullen baby sister is suddenly missing, and the high school heartthrob who stole her heart—and her virginity—is the only man big enough and bad enough to help.

Captain Matt “Richie Rich” Girard can’t afford to get involved. He’s already on the verge of a court-martial after a Top Secret op gone wrong, and he’s been ordered to stay out of trouble while he’s home for his sister’s wedding.

But when Evie’s ex-partner turns up dead, staying out of trouble is the last thing on Matt’s mind. He failed Evie once before; he can’t fail her again. If he’s going to protect her from a killer, and find her sister before time runs out, he’ll have to risk his entire future—and both their lives—to do it.

Hot Pursuit is a tale of second chance love, when Evie who has been in love with Matt since she was about 6 has to return to her small Louisiana hometown after being the target of a con artist the last person she wants to see is Matt who broke her heart about 10 years ago.

Matt, now an operative with the armies HOT team, has to take a break to see if his bad decisions lead to the deaths of two of his team mates during the last op they went on. Matt returns home to attend his sister's wedding never knowing that he would see Evie a girl he has had a special place in his heart for all these years.

Hot Pursuit is a suspenseful and exciting tale of lost love, cruel lovers and mob hit men. I did find I had a hard time getting into the story but once it got going it was face paced and suspenseful. As much a action adventure story as a romance we have a good blending of the two.

Evie did seem to have some mood swings fairly quickly and her reasoning at times is whiney and more apt for a tween than an adult woman. The chemistry between Matt and Evie leads to some pretty hot scenes and sexual tension permeates the entire story.
