A woman determined to protect her heart. An agent hell bent on proving himself. One night neither one of them can forget...

Landscaping in Delmont, Maine hasn’t been DEIRDRE TILLING’s only passion. Up until two months ago, it had included a live-in lover. Jilted for the third time in as many years, Deirdre’s decided to give up on love. With her feet firmly planted on the path of one night stands, she finds herself heating up the sheets with a dark haired stranger she met at her new employer’s party. But one night with the man who is both sexy as hell and compassionate, may not be enough.

DEA agent, AYDEN SCOTT, has a lot to prove after a disastrous drug bust in Miami three years earlier that left a member of his team dead. Working undercover as lead investigator, he’s determined to bring down an elusive drug cartel smuggling heroin into central Maine. He’ll use any means necessary to complete his objective, including sleeping with the suspected drug Lord’s landscaper, Deirdre. He just hadn’t expected the feisty redhead to be so much more than long legs and dangerous curves.

Deirdre and Ayden both thought one sexually explosive romp in the sack would be the end of their relationship. But Deirdre’s arrest for heroin possession and her father’s near-fatal heart attack prompts Ayden to confess his true identity. When Deirdre is kidnapped by the drug cartel and used as a pawn, Ayden is forced to choose between his heart and his mission. The question is…who will survive his decision?

Poor Deidre Tilling is cradling and nurturing her broken heart after her girlfriend, Bri, left a couple of months earlier. When I first started reading this erotic romance short, I thought Deidre was going add a new girlfriend. That is until DEA Agent Ayden Scott entered the quaint Maine town where Deidre was living. Ayden is sent to the town to investigate a possible drug ring and Deidre is hanging out with the prime suspect. The tale that Pierce weaves is presumptuous and well written. The dialogue is convincing and lets the reader like both hero and heroine.

While this is mainly a romance novel, Pierce adds just enough suspense in the plot to keep it interesting. The novel was fast-paced, it held my interest and Pierce's writing style is incredible. Pierce kept the story line of drug dealing and importing believable yet it didn't smother the romance between the hero and heroine. The romance and relationship between Ayden and Deidre is right on the mark to make the plot credible and I highly recommend Love's Bounty to all romance readers.
