Here's my candidate for the week:

Officer Next Door by Ranae Rose
Expected Publication Date: June 2014
Series: Lock and Key, 1
Genre: Romantic Suspense

How can anyone resist temptation when it’s right next door?

Riley County North Carolina has a lot to offer: coastal views as far as the eye can see, and men in uniform who are even more gorgeous. Home to the most notorious prison in the state, Alicia’s new hometown is crawling with men who carry their own handcuffs and know how to use them – like Officer Liam Alexander, her one and only neighbor. After catching him out of uniform, she can’t resist pausing to enjoy the show. When Liam’s Southern charm drives him across the property line, life gets hotter than the Carolina summer could possibly account for. Unfortunately, there’s a dark side to life in the coastal haven, even with an officer next door.

Coordinating special events at a historic – and supposedly haunted – plantation is enough to have Alicia questioning her senses and her sanity, but the spirits of the past take a backseat to a pair of escaped convicts who blaze a trail of mayhem across Riley County. Not even the most intense chemistry can survive the perils that make a sunny seaside town a dangerous place to be after dark … can it?

Reviews of Rose's Other Books:


Kame and I both love this cover -- who wouldn't want an officer next door if he looked like THAT? :) 

As you can see, Kame has really enjoyed Rose's previous books, so she'll no doubt be reviewing this one when it comes out, too.

Kame: Okay - I am a little sad the last Hot Ink book is being released - but LOOK what is coming!

I hearby nominate for L4C - YOWZA

Kame's Pick

The Perfect Hostage by Misty Evans

Genre: Romantic Suspense

Lucie Morgan has finally found a man who doesn't care she's the daughter of a famous billionaire. All she needs is one weekend to convince him the crush she's had since he rescued her from a terrorist has grown into much more.

Sergeant John Quick has seen the worst in life, both personally and professionally. He long ago decided loving someone comes at too high a price. But when the woman of his dreams "kidnaps" him for a weekend affair with no strings attached, he can't resist.

The smoking-hot weekend turns deadly when John and Lucie are trapped during a blizzard and discover they're not alone. Someone from their past has come hunting for revenge. Now John must become the perfect hostage in order to save Lucie's life.
