COLE'S RED-HOT PURSUIT
The only way to describe Texas Ranger Cole Westmoreland would be "sex in a Stetson," and he's having a predictable effect on widowed doctor Petrina Freeman. They're stranded together after an accident and a snowstorm isolate them at her house, and the flames nearly burn the house down when the two come together. After her husband's death, Petrina swore she'd never get involved with a lawman again, but she's having a hard time resisting this sexy guy. Brenda Jackson has a fine touch with cat-and-mouse romantic games, and Cole's Red-Hot Pursuit (4.5) is steamy, sexy and a stellar story.
