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.

Wow! Romance that sizzles and suspense that keeps you turning pages~ I was captivated by this book from the first page. Jackson and Michaela are great characters. Michaela is a very strong woman and I had to admire her from the very beginning when she "picks up" Jackson in the hotel bar even that took a lot of nerve and then she manages to start a whole new life away from her father, he is just evil.
Jackson is just enough of a "damaged" hero to make you want to kiss and make it all better for him. I would have gladly taken Michaela's place! 
I can see more stories coming from Ms. Covington there are a couple of secondary characters who really need their story told (hint,hint) she has a winner here and I can't wait to see what comes next!

She doesn’t miss the boy-toy at all.
Happily exploring the theme of fooling around and falling in love, her stories burn up the sheets . . . one page at a time.
Her best-selling debut novel, A NIGHT OF SOUTHERN COMFORT, is available from the Indulgence Line at Entangled Publishing.
