Read all 372 pages in a day. Action doesn't stop, and the steamy 15 pages or so made me, well, have a hot flash!
New Orleans Police Sergeant Beauregard Dupree has spent the last 10 years raising his three orphaned sisters. Now that the last one is about to leave the nest, he's looking forward to impending bachelorhood. And when he's ordered to guard prim and proper Bostonian Juliet Rose Astor Lowell, Beau decides to get himself unassigned from this latest round of babysitting duty by exposing the prudish lady to the rather uncivilized side of life in the French Quarter.
What good old Beau doesn't know is that a passionate woman exists under Juliet's buttoned-down exterior, and Beau's ultra-macho treatment only unleashes her wild side. Juliet is fascinated by the seamy joints Beau drags her to, and she's also intrigued and aroused by the sexual innuendoes designed to anger her. It isn't long before Beau is having way too much fun with the woman he wanted to ditch, and Juliet is craving the handsome Southerner in ways she never imagined. And while the two attempt to dismiss the threat to her life, the danger is very real. When someone takes a shot at Juliet, Beau starts to take his bodyguard duties very seriously, while Juliet struggles to deal with the fact that someone wishes her harm.
Not only does Be My Baby bubble with hilarious dialogue, superb sexual tension, and the color and heat of New Orleans, but it also possesses a solid suspense subplot that perfectly balances the wonderful romance.
Fun - light - very entertaining
Tough guy, proper gal- when the two meet watch out. Decent romance, great sensuality.
