Night of Southern Comfort (The Boys are Back in Town Series) by Robin Covington
One night of passion... Detective Jackson Cantrell never imagined that one night with an irresistible stranger would turn his life upside down. He's spent years living in the shadows, but Dr. Michaela Roarke awakened a passion inside him he'd buried years ago. He never expected the woman would turn out to be the governor's daughter...and his next assignment. The governor blackmails Jackson to secretly watch over Michaela and protect her from a stalker, or kiss his dream job at the FBI good-bye. Swearing to keep things strictly professional, Jackson moves in with Michaela. Too bad his heart can't keep the same promise. But when the stalker's attacks quickly escalate beyond mere photographs to bodily harm, Jackson must race to save Michaela's life. And he'll have to figure out how to keep her once she discovers his lie.

Some advice for readers starting this novel. Keep a glass of something very cold nearby....your going to need it!
We meet a young beautiful woman in a hotel bar celebrating a new turn in her life. Across the room is a group of very handsome men playing pool, all in tuxes. One of these sexy men catches her eye. She was actually looking at his butt! He comes across the room and she asks if he would like a drink. Thus begins a night of passion that totally unnerves her. She has never done a one night stand. He agrees from the beginning...no names, no strings, one night. He calls her Gwyneth ( Paltrow) she calls him James ( Bond). He wakes up in the morning, and she is gone. He feels a strange tug in his chest, but laughs it off. What did he expect?
James and Gwyneth are destined to meet again. He turns out to be Jackson
Cantrell , former FBI, now detective. She is Michaela Roarke , Pediatrician, daughter of the former Governor of Virgina. The night she was celebrating her new life? It was getting away from her extremely controlling and verbally abusive father. Life has some crazy things coming up for these two. In this HOT, suspenseful and funny story, we meet the residents of Elliott, Virginia. We also meet "The Boys", childhood friends who are still very close. " Lucky" Landon is Jack's partner and cousin, Dr. Beckett Sutherland surgeon, and Teague Elliott attorney. I'm so hoping Ms. Covington has some stories for these guys!
I finished this book in one day. From the first chapter to the last, the dialogue is great, the characters are strong and appealing, and the suspense will take you by surprise. I highly recommend this fast paced sizzling story. Hope there is more!
