He’ll guard her body all night long.

Former Marine Jude Wilde’s motto has always been “burn bridges and never look back,” so nobody is more surprised when Wilde Security is hired to protect assistant district attorney Libby Pruitt, the woman he loved and left. Although she makes it clear she wants nothing to do with Jude, they’re forced to fake a relationship for her safety. He can’t ignore the heat still simmering between them, and when her stalker’s threats escalate to attempted murder, he’s left with no choice but to whisk her away to a friend’s safe house in Key West, FL.

Cooped up in paradise together, Jude begins to chip away at Libby’s resolve to hate him. But even as she gives in to his proximity and her body’s demands for his, she refuses to fall for his charms again. Maybe a torrid affair in the sun is exactly what she needs to get him out of her system. But when her stalker tracks them down, can they escape the steamy Key West night without anyone getting hurt?


I was looking for a hot romance with fun and adventure, Wilde Nights in Paradise was exactly that.

The story begins with Jude Wilde's family security business being hired to protect Libby Pruitt. The tricky thing is, eight years prior Jude and Libby were engaged. He broke her heart. Libby is still understandably upset with Jude, who has never stopped loving her. When they head to safety in the Florida Keys, the temperature is not the only thing heating up. Jude and Libby have unfinished business, and a chemistry that won't quit.

Jude and Libby were both written to pitch perfection. Jude is a bad boy with a good heart. He had a tragic childhood that led him to believing he doesn't deserve good things, particularly Libby. It's clear from the beginning that his wrongdoing in their relationship isn't what it seems, and I was anxious to learn exactly what happened and why. Libby was Jude's opposite in many ways, but they definitely complemented one another. The breakup led Libby to become more withdrawn, and Jude sees it as his mission to bring to fun loving girl he not back out to play. Their banter was fun and realistic of two such characters.

Their chemistry was even hotter. I loved that Jude and Libby had such hot chemistry and I love even more that the author made me believe it right away. The flirting was fun, and the steam between them was even more so. The author painted a very, very nice picture of the intensity between Jude and Libby between the sheets (on the pool table, etc.). I found the scenes to be nice and hot, but not so much that would drive those who shy from the explicit away. They didn't take over Jude and Libby's story, they enhanced it.

Wilde Nights in Paradise was a fast read that I truly enjoyed. Jude's brothers, who also run the business, all played parts in the story. I would love it if each of these hot, intense Wilde brothers got their own story. <--- Not so subtle hint.

Wilde Nights in Paradise is another win for Entangled Brazen.


Favorite Quotes:

  "Jude, if we keep this up, I won't be able to walk tomorrow."
  When he lifted his head and grinned at her with the devil in his eyes, she decided walking was overrated anyway.  ~ eARC, 30%


  "You got it," he said and nuzzled her earlobe. He still hadn't removed his hands from her waist, and in that moment, with the sun turning to rust and sinking toward the horizon, the wind tangling her hair and his warm, solid weight pressed to her back...in that moment, she hoped he would never let go of her.  ~eARC, 66%

About the author:
Writing has always been my one true love. I wrote my first novel-length story in 8th grade and haven't put down my pen since. I received a B.A. in creative writing from SUNY Oswego and I'm now working on a MFA in popular fiction at Seton Hill University.

When I'm not writing, I spend my time reading, painting (badly), exploring new places, and enjoying time with my family. Give me a good horror movie over a chick flick any day. (And, let's be honest, I'll take a bad horror movie too!) I'm a geek at heart and pledge my avid TV fandom to Supernatural and Doctor Who. I'm also a big fan of The Voice. What can I say? Guilty pleasure.​​

I share my life with two dogs and a ginormous cat. I'm from a small town in Western New York, but I suffer from a bad case of wanderlust and usually end up moving someplace new every few years. Luckily, my animals are all excellent travel buddies.
