A Fine Specimen

Everyone on the Baylorville Police Force expect Lieutenant Alejandro Cruz to be made Captain when Captain Avery retires at the end of the month. When the Captain has to go out of town, he leaves a note telling the Lieutenant that he is to allow C. Summers to follow him around for a week while working on a paper about “Dominance Displays in Law Enforcement”. He is none to happy about it, since he is busy trying to put away Lopez.
Caitlin Summers is convinced that Lieutenant Cruz is the most alpha of alpha men she has ever seen.   She considers herself an expert in law enforcement. She is busy writing her dissertation on certain aspects of law enforcement. Captain Avery had spent days convincing her that she needed a little bit of real life experience before she finished her dissertation.   Now that she is here, what she would not give to have a year to just videotape and study him personally.
A Fine Specimen is an intriguing read. Who does not love a man in uniform, especially one that can take charge like an alpha male can. Any book that can make me lose hours in my day is most definitely a good read. Lisa Marie Rice will catch you and hold you hostage with her telling of a man that did not know what love was until it smacked him in the head. I am sure that you will enjoy A Fine Specimen as much as I did.

Book Blurb for A Fine Specimen

Lieutenant Alex Cruz eats, sleeps and breathes law enforcement. He’s tough and brusque, and cops and criminals alike tremble before him. And that’s the way he likes it. Until he meets Caitlin Summers—and decides he wants her trembling beneath him.

The beautiful scholar is doing dissertation research in his cop shop, and seriously messing with his head. His self-imposed sexual abstinence comes to a screeching halt in Caitlin’s ratty hotel room and dies a permanent death in his bed…and his kitchen…and his living room. Caitlin is also intelligent and funny, kind and generous, her smile a burst of warmth in his cold, austere life. And that scares the crap out of him.

With his head and heart fighting a battle of wills, Alex can barely concentrate on work. And that’s too bad—because his dangerous job and his newfound love are about to clash in the worst way possible.
