From New York Times Bestselling author Liliana Hart, comes SWEET SURRENDER, a sexy new novella filled with suspense in her MacKenzie Family Series, brought to you by 1,001 Dark Nights! Be sure you grab your copy today!
Sweet Surrender was a complete delight!
Liza Carmichael caught her fiancé cheating on her and drove her car into his fancy house. Now her great aunt has passed away leaving Liza her bakery. Now all Liza wants to do is sell it so she can get on with her life and move as far away from her ex-fiancé as possible. That is, until Grant comes walking in to her family bakery.
Grant Boone has been forced to retire from the Detroit police force after his ex-partner went bad. Now he’s unsure where he wants to be. Coming back to his home town to spend time with his best-friends’ family sounded like a good option. Especially after meeting Liza.
I won’t say much more because SPOILERS, but I will say this book will get super exciting beyond the sexy times. There’s violence, and suspense, and just all around awesomeness. I haven’t read a MacKenzie book before this, but I am definitely adding this series to my tbr pile.
If you’re looking for a cute short hot read, Sweet Surrender is definitely the book for you!
He could tell by looking the woman was an absolute hellcat. He’d tussled with them before, and he had a knack for attracting them. He’d worked most of his career undercover, but he always seemed to connect with dangerous women who added an extra element of risk to his drug enforcement days.
Grant grinned and shook his head. “Damn, Coop. You shouldn’t have said that. You know I love a good warning.”
“Her name’s Liza Carmichael,” Cooper said. “Her great aunt passed not long ago. She ran that bakery for fifty years. Mrs. Baker never missed a morning’s opening. Though I seem to recall her coming in late once after she buried her husband in the early nineties.”
“The old lady who owned the bakery was named Mrs. Baker?” Grant asked.
“So Surrender has a new pastry chef,” Grant said. “Maybe I’ll take up donut eating after all. Once a cop, always a cop.”
Cooper laughed and shook his head. “You always were a glutton for punishment.”
“I miss the adrenaline rush.”
“Hey, I know what you mean. And I’m not saying you should swear off donuts, but honestly, I’d stay away from her. She’s made it crystal clear that her intentions are to lease the space or sell it outright. Whichever brings her the greatest profit. She has no desire to stay in Surrender.”
“Perfect,” he said. “Neither do I.”
Grant ran his fingers through his hair, pushing it back off his face, and he noticed Cooper’s scowl as his gaze locked on the disfiguring scar that ran the length of his left jaw to just behind his ear. He knew Cooper still carried the guilt of the injury, but there was nothing he or anyone could’ve done. It was just an undercover drug deal gone bad.
“Coop,” he said, trying to divert attention back to the very sexy Ms. Carmichael. “I can assure you that I will never swear off donuts. I have a powerful sweet tooth.”
“Are we still talking about actual donuts?”
“There’s all kinds of donuts,” he said, smiling. “And I’ve got a hell of an appetite.”
About SWEET SURRENDER:
It’s been twelve years since Liza Carmichael stepped foot in Surrender, but after her great aunt’s death she has no choice but to return and settle her estate. Which includes the corner bakery that’s been a staple in Surrender for more than fifty years.
After twenty-five years on the job, Lieutenant Grant Boone finds himself at loose ends now that he’s retired. He’s gotten a number of job offers—one from MacKenzie Security—but he’s burned out and jaded, and the last thing he wants to do is carry the burden of another badge and weapon. He almost turns down the invitation from his good friend Cooper MacKenzie to stay as their guest for a few weeks while he’s deciding what to do with the rest of his life. But he packs his bag and heads to Surrender anyway.
The only thing Boone knows is that his future plans don’t include Liza Carmichael. She’s bossy, temperamental, and the confections she bakes are sweet enough to tempt a saint. Thank God he’s never pretended to be one. But after he gets one taste of Liza and things start heating up in the kitchen, he realizes how delicious new beginnings can be.
