This good girl's going bad.

Merry Kade has always been the good girl. The best friend. The one who patiently waits for the guy to notice her. Well, no more. Merry has just scored her dream job, and it's time for her life to change. As the new curator of a museum in Wyoming, she'll supervise a lot of restoration work. Luckily she's found the perfect contractor for the job.

Shane Harcourt can't believe that someone wants to turn a beat-up ghost town into a museum attraction. After all, the last thing he needs is the site of his dream ranch turning into a tourist trap. He'll work on the project, if only to hasten its failure; until the beautiful, quirky woman in charge starts to change his mind.

For the first time ever, Merry has a gorgeous stud hot on her heels. But can she trust this strong, silent man, even if he is a force of nature in bed? When Shane's ulterior motives come out, he'll need to prove to Merry that a love like theirs may be too hot to handle, but it's impossible to resist.

Why I Read This Book: Victoria Dahl is on my auto-buy list. I love everything she writes.

What I Liked: I love the chemistry between Merry and Shane. They are a steamy couple once they get going. I loved them together and I really teared up when the 'big reveal' came along. I think Ms. Dahl writes such wonderful three dimensional characters. By the time I finished the book I felt like I knew these people...that I spent time with these people. I suppose I did.

What I Didn't Like: This one starts out a little slow. The steam certainly picks up later but the beginning is rocky and kind of dull. I had to start this one a few times to get it finished. I usually have a page limit where I stop and give up but seeing as Ms. Dahl hasn't let me down yet I pushed through.

Overall Impression: A slow start but an solid addition to Ms. Dahl's publications.
