Desire won’t take no for an answer in The Right Kind of Trouble by Shiloh Walker

In the small Southern town of McKay’s Treasure, everybody knows that the handsome local police chief, Gideon Marshall, has been carrying a torch for Moira McKay. It’s also no secret that Moira has been rejecting Gideon since…forever. But after an attack from a mysterious stranger bent on taking down the McKay family, Moira becomes filled with distrust toward most men. Now she wonders whether she’s been wrong about Gideon all along—and if it’s not too late to admit him back into her life…and into her bed...

Gideon has finally convinced his wasted heart to give up on Moira, who he’s loved since he was sixteen years old. Moira’s attack changes everything, however—and he vows to protect her. But how much is he willing to risk for a woman who’s always kept him at bay…until now? And is it too late for Moira to tell him that her love for him has always been locked deep in her heart—and he holds the key?

Pat's Review:

I have enjoyed all three books in this series, and recommend each one. They can be read as stand alones, but are so much more enjoyable when you start from the beginning.

Gideon Marshall, chief of police for the town of McKay's Treasure, is in love. He has been for 20 years. Moira (Mac) McKay shared that love with all her heart. After a tragic accident that killed her parents she couldn't get past the guilt of a last minute argument with her Mom. She felt she didn't deserve his love. She also now carried the responsibility of raising her siblings, and her father's company. Mac broke up with him and shattered both their hearts. Gideon joined the military and his trips to McKay's Treasure were few and far between. It was too hard for him. Finally after wandering for a while, he ended up home and chief of police. Every encounter with her is painful......he has to be done. He is leaving as soon he can.

A long history of "hidden treasure" has surrounded McKay's Folly. Stories of pirates and feuds and broken promises. It seems those rumors are making a comeback, and Moira is attacked in her own yard, nearly strangled. When word reaches Gideon, he doesn't hesitate -- he has to protect her. Still being her feisty self, I did want to shake her a little to wake her up. After breaking down when she hears he is moving, she finally realizes what she has the potential of losing. She begs Gideon for one last chance, and he falls under her spell. But this time it's working. Meanwhile a series of dangerous "accidents" start occurring and Gideon is overwhelmed with suspects and alibis. Even Moira's ex-husband is involved.

The suspense will make your heart pound, as well as the very sexy moments with Gideon and Mac. I wasn't sure "who dun it" till the very end! A very enjoyable read.

4 1/2 STARS!
