Highly Charged!
by Joanne Rock

Subject: Navy Lieutenant Brad Riddock, explosives expert.

Current Status: On leave...and on alert!

Mission: Getting mentally prepared for his next mission.

Obstacle: Getting Nikki Thornton out of his head...and into his bed.

All Professor Nikki Thornton wants is to fix up the home she’s inherited from a friend. The place is run down, and she’s at her wit’s end dealing with her friend’s hostile relations. On the upside, she has a droolingly hot neighbor—whose late-night workouts offer seriously panty-vaporizing entertainment....

Explosives expert Navy Lieutenant Brad Riddock is on enforced R & R...but it’s rapidly becoming more racy than restful! When Nikki receives threatening letters, Brad immediately offers his protection—his very personal protection. But his leave is soon over, and the threats to Nikki’s safety are escalating. Will this volatile situation bring them together...before it tears them apart?



Joanne Rock's Bio

Three-time RITA nominee Joanne Rock has never met a romance sub-genre she didn’t like. The author of over seventy books currently writes sexy contemporary stories for Harlequin Desire and small town romance for Harlequin Superromance. An optimist by nature and perpetual seeker of silver linings, Joanne finds romance fits her life outlook perfectly—love is worth fighting for. A frequent speaker at regional and national writing conferences she enjoys giving back to the writing community that nurtured and inspired her early career. She has a Masters degree in Literature from the University of Louisville but credits her fiction writing skills to her intensive study with fellow author and friend Catherine Mann. When she’s not writing, Joanne enjoys travel, especially to see her favorite sports teams play with her former sports editor husband and three athletic-minded sons.
