The arrest should have gone off without a hitch. Except that the sexy man in tight jeans Luce Montgomery had just nabbed was no bail-jumping fugitive. He was a cop! And Philip O'Donnaugh was proving to be more trouble than her elusive target.
Being ambushed and cuffed by a beautiful bounty hunter was a first for the newly installed chief of police. So was the passion she aroused in him. Philip had come to the sleepy New Mexico town to find peace and solitude. Instead, he and Luce were tracking down a dangerous criminal together and sharing a lot more than information.
Once the job was done, would they find themselves fugitives from desire . . . or passionate partners in love?
If you like strong, some might say head-strong, independent women with a soft spot for collecting Santas (as in Santa Claus), men who will help in times of need, open his arms to offer comfort and is just darn good-looking, then from the first few pages when Luce searches for Phillip's I.D. you'll be on a thrill ride with Blue Jeans and a Badge and We Really Dig Romance Novels would like to thank Nina Bruhns for sending us a review copy on this April 2005 release.

She slid him a look to check his reaction. And Philip shot back a smile. A knowing smile that called her a liar louder than if he'd yelled the word at her.
"So tell me about the bounty hunting." he said.
She waited for the telltale heat in her face to diminish. Then, because it was either that or do something really crazy like ask him to kiss her, she told him.
Anything to avoid talking about the loaded shotgun that was hovering there, big as life between them.
A shotgun called desire.
