Brown nicknamed his newly discovered dwarf planet "Xena"—finding this name more convenient to use than the then-official designation, UB When this object was initially determined to be larger than Pluto , it gained international attention and forced a year-long debate among astronomers as to the definition of a planet Observations made by New Horizons subsequently found Pluto to be marginally larger than Eris.
The object's nickname "Xena" was used in the press. New Scientist magazine polled the public on their preferred final name for the so-called tenth planet; "Xena" ranked number 4.

Okay, so I still ended up liking the book overall. I just lost a lot of respect for our main lady. I really liked all the innuendo and tension that sprang up between them. It turns out that I just can't say no to a good literary game of strip poker.

Ariana aka Anna is in hiding, awaiting trial to prosecute her mobster father where she is the key witness. Desperate to keep her safe, her handler sends her to stay with an old buddy, off the system since he believes there's a leak within his organization. Milo is a small town sheriff,who's on leave after he was injured in a shootout.
He eagerly takes the job, not wanting to have nothing to do for a couple of weeks. Ariana and Milo's attraction sizzles from the start, even though the princess is Ariana aka Anna is in hiding, awaiting trial to prosecute her mobster father where she is the key witness. Ariana and Milo's attraction sizzles from the start, even though the princess is already bad-mouthing him and the entire situation before they even meet. He needs to keep his head and his hands off her to do his job. She's just bored. Most of the time, I wanted to strangle them. Every time a wall crumbled between them, two more were erected.
And oh man, Ariana, needed to have her head examined. She was one the most selfish heroine's I ever read. I understand her plight. But you do not put others in danger because you were getting cabin fever. That said, the story moved at a nice pace, kept me interested, and the love that grew between these two was believable when they allowed it to happen. That kept me reading and is the reason for a four star review. Aug 31, Becky rated it really liked it. This was the first book I read by this author. It was a freebie for my Kindle. A story about an ex-US Marshall and army is Milo the sheriff of a small community.
For the most part, things are pretty quiet in the town until one of his buddies from the US Marshalls office named Quinn calls him to ask him to hide the daughter of the Mob Boss in Chicago who is turning states evidence on her father in a month at his trial. Ariana of course is a sexy, beautiful woman and Milo is taken immediately to h This was the first book I read by this author.
Ariana of course is a sexy, beautiful woman and Milo is taken immediately to her. As much as he doesn't want to do this, as memories of another woman he was hiding and protecting, haunts him. Of course, the love story moves on in the story. The ending was very dramatic and exciting. The very ending, which of course, is the usual in all romance books, was a little cold and boring.
For the lead up to the end with all the drama, I really had hoped for more excitement. I did enjoy the book and found it hard to put down at times.
I would certainly read more her books. I would recommend this book.

I am definitely going to consume all books written by Ms. This story idea was fresh and new. I was a little apprehensive when starting this book thinking, how is she going to write a story with just Milo and Ariana and not have it boring or just complete sex scenes.
Very creative. There was also a little bit of suspense in with this l Originally posted at A Date with a Book My third book in this series and fourth book by this author. There was also a little bit of suspense in with this love story which just added to the enjoyment. I love how the author writes the beautiful scenery in all of her books. I can just imagine myself in such a beautiful place.
The descriptions are just enough without being overbearing in abundance. Definitely a must read author and a must read series. I recommend this entire series to all romance readers. I just hope there is more of the Aspen series. Sep 24, Brandi added it. Arianna is a hard - to-keep-alive witness for a mobile trial against her father and he wants her dead. Though Arianna meant well, she's having thoughts of regret because her life has been turned upside down. Now she's on her fifth U. Marshall, Milo Sykes. Ok, now here's what I think: there just wasn't enough story.
This felt like part 3 of a five part series starring the same characters. There are glimpses of the characters' pasts but enough to be complete. The book is very entertaining but Arianna is a hard - to-keep-alive witness for a mobile trial against her father and he wants her dead. The book is very entertaining but it was just missing something. I wish there was another part to this. I have read Relentless but it really doesn't support this book.
