She’s hunting for a mate … and there’s no more playing it safe.

Daisy Minor is bored. Worse than that, she’s boring. A plain, small-town librarian, she’s got a wardrobe as sexy as a dictionary and hasn’t been on a date in years. She’s never even had a lukewarm love affair, let alone a hot one. So when she wakes up on her thirty-fourth birthday and wonders how it is that she still lives with her widowed mom and spinster aunt while her friends have all gotten married and started families, she decides it’s time to get a life—and a sex life. And as far as she can tell, good girls don’t attract nearly as many men as bad ones.

One makeover later, Daisy has transformed herself into a party girl extraordinaire. She’s dancing the night away at clubs, and laughing and flirting with men for the first time in, well, forever. With a new lease on her own place, it’s open season for manhunting.

But on her way home late one night, Daisy sees something she’s not supposed to see. Suddenly the target of a killer, she’s forced to put her manhunt on hold. But the very moment she stops looking might be the moment she finds what she’s wanted all along.

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Elisabeth Rodrigues | 2/19/2014

    " One of the funnier Linda Howards I've read, a goofy heroine with a confused hero who doesn't quite know what to make of her. Some typical Howards cliches - virgin heroine, alpha cop hero, some disregard for safe sex - but it was interesting enough and I liked the main couple and her crazy family. "

    " I really liked it. I love all of Lindas work. Jack and daisy were cute together. Not enough of the two of them for me but still a good read. Todd wasn't gay???? he didn't pass the PUCE test lol. and the end????? anyone else find it a tad weird... "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Mark | 1/31/2014

    " This book started off a little slow and a little too girly for me but once it got into the actual suspense part it picked up. Definitely glad I read it but not sure I would read it again. There were definitely some amusing parts to it -- two being the condom scene and also the first night that Daisy got Midas. I can definitely relate to the whole puppy scene because it reminds me of when my dog was a puppy. :) "

    " I enjoyed it. I didn't feel like I couldn't wait til the next page but I thought it was enjoyable... really cute and funny in alot of places. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Bridget | 1/25/2014

    " This wasn't one of Linda's best books. The plot could have been much better with a scattered twist to make it interesting but it wasn't bad. The condom scene was a riot... I actually laughed out loud when they were trying to decide on the colour. That was worth the price of the book. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Tara | 1/19/2014

    " I love Linda Howard books! This one didn't disappoint. although, I do have to agree with the other reviews about Jennifer and Sikes. Seemed weird to put them in the epilouge, but not carry through with the story. "

    " For the number of times I've re-read this, want to say 4 1/2 stars. What a hero -- and Midas was such a cute dog -- plus all the puce talk! "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Kathryn | 11/22/2013

    " Think of this as a romantic suspense book and not a thriller and you will be good to go :) Very amusing and perfect for the beach! "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Kitty | 11/15/2013

    " Daisy gets tired of being a frumpy librarian - new clothes, hair, makeup, and suddenly she's a knock-out. While "clubbing", witnesses a tragedy, and suddenly her life is *really* different. It was okay, but I just didn't relate to the characters at all. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Debra Martin | 11/4/2013

    " Couldn't put this one down! Loved the romance, the family and, of course, the suspense. The latter kept me on pins and needles until I fininshed the book. "
