Review by Publishers Weekly Reviews

Dahl's second Jackson: Girls Night out contemporary (after Looking for Trouble), set in the mountains of Wyoming, introduces a very strong, slightly flighty heroine who proves that it's possible to thrive, survive, and find love without being dependent on another person. Artist Isabelle West and her cat share a quiet cabin far removed from the hustle and bustle. Her tranquility is shattered when Deputy U.S. Marshal Tom Duncan knocks on her door while guarding one of her neighbors. Something about Isabelle's tense response triggers alarms for the lawman; little does he know that she's on the run and using an assumed name. As the plot unfolds and their mutual attraction grows, it becomes clear that forgetful Isabelle has steel in her spine. Tom is baffled by her, but when she pulls him into a clinch, he's quite willing to go along. Quirky characters with atypical reactions lend a spark of intrigue and reality to Dahl's trademark merry raunchiness, while the suspense-laden plot takes a backseat. A bonus novella, "Fanning the Flames," starring Isabelle's friend Lauren, will please series fans. Agent: Amy Moore-Benson, AMB Literary Management. (Feb.) [Page ]. Copyright 2014 PWxyz LLC

Review by Publisher Summary 3

There's no hiding from sizzling chemistry… Artist Isabelle West has good reasons for preferring a solitary life. Tucked away in a cabin in the woods, she has everything she needs…except a red-hot love life. That is, until a hard-bodied US marshal threatens to unearth secrets she's spent years protecting. But giving in to the sparks flying between them can only lead to one thing…disaster. Tom Duncan lives by the letter of the law. But no one has tempted him—or confused him—more than free-spirited Isabelle, who arouses his suspicion and his desire. As their connection grows, and their nights get hotter, they find their wild attraction might shake everything he stands for—and expose everything she has to hide.
