A small town, enemies to lovers, second chance military protector romance from New York Times Bestselling Author Lynn Raye Harris.
Down on her luck and in need of a fresh start, Evangeline Baker rolls into tiny Rochambeau, Louisiana with her tail between her legs and a vague plan to find herself. What she gets instead is a whole lotta trouble when an ex-business partner turns up dead – and she’s next on the list.
Evie needs the kind of help that only a tall, sexy, badass Special Ops soldier can provide. It’s been a lot of years since she worshiped the ground her former best friend walked on and started hating him instead, but now’s not the time to be picky.
Matt Girard’s got trouble—and demons—of his own, but nothing’s gonna stop him from protecting Evie. He owes her that much after what he did. Hell, he owes her more than that, but it’s a start.
He’ll do whatever it takes to eliminate the threat. Then he’ll walk away and save her from the worst threat of all. Him.

Great New Romantic Suspense Series
Hot Pursuit is the first in the HOT series and focuses on a team of top secret special ops force within the army. This book features the love story of the Captain Matt Girard and his childhood friend, Evie. When Evie's sister is kidnapped by an infamous mobster, Matt helps Evie in her search. Even though Matt broke Evie's heart ten years, ago, she discovers that Matt is a different man, one that she might be able to fall in love with. Every scene is filled with action, drama, and suspense that kept me eagerly turning the pages to see what will happen next. I am now a fan of this series and look forward to the next HOT novel.
Packed with action. The characters were fantastic and the story was interesting and full of suspense.
This was a great read; I didn’t want to put it down. The characters are ever evolving, getting in trouble, and solving a very big problem from Evie’s past. Who knew small towns on the Bayou could have so much intrigue and danger. The sassiness and hardheaded shenanigans of Evie made her real, she had depth and dimension. I loved that the male & female leads realized they loved each other while trying to rescue her younger sister from blood thirsty killers…it was a story inside of a story. Coming to acceptance after dealing with murder, explosions, break ins, theft, betrayal, and broken hearts finally gave credence to their love. That type of love is real…enduring…eternal. Highly recommend this one…
