Summary

Opposites attract when a police officer falls for an outspoken media celebrity in this romance from a New York Times–bestselling author. 
 
A controversial Boston radio talk-show host, Monica Grant is a strong, willful, and independent woman. She wants an equally strong man. Someone like the heroes in the romance novels she's addicted to . . . someone like Michael Shaw. 
 
A cop with the heart of a poet, Michael is looking for that special someone, too—an old-fashioned, feminine woman. And for some reason he thinks Monica just might be the one.  
 
By turns infuriatingly chauvinistic and irresistibly attractive, Michael demands something from Monica that she doesn't know if she can give—or even wants to. With Michael, can she find the happy ending of her own love story?
Available since: 10/13/2009.
Print length: 336 pages.
