Product Details (as per amazon page)

A brand new present-day romance from bestselling author Elizabeth Hoyt. Filled with her signature charm, wit and red-hot romance, fans of Jill Shalvis, Kristen Ashley and Marie Force will love this!

Small town cop Sam West certainly doesn’t mind a routine traffic stop: speeding ticket, stern warning, and sayonara. With a whopper of a blizzard closing in, that’s all he has time for. But the lawbreaker he pulls over is anything but typical. From her mile-long legs to her razor-sharp wit, Maisa Bradley is like nothing Coot Lake, Minnesota, has ever seen . . . and she’s about to take Sam on the ride of his life.

Whoever said blood is thicker than water probably wasn’t related to a former Russian mobster. But an innocent mix-up and rumours of stolen diamonds soon have the Russian mob taking an unusual interest in the sleepy little town-and Maisa facing heated scrutiny from a certain tall, dark, and handsome deputy. Sam’s dazzling blue eyes beg her to reveal all her secrets, but how much should she tell? Getting snowed in with the sexiest cop in the frozen north may not be the worst way to decide . . .

I’d like to thank the publishers for a copy of Once and Always for an honest review.  Firstly, I have to admit this is a new author for me and I wasn’t disappointed.  It was a fun, sexy read with added adventure and romance.

I did get a little lost at the beginning with the introduction of more characters but once the storyline developed I grew to understand and appreciate the complexities of all the characters.

Sam, the sexy cop with a heart, is the sort of character you instantly fall in love with and he becomes a hit as a book boyfriend.  However, events in his past are haunting him.  Maisa has Russian mafia links in her family.  There is an instant mutual attraction between Sam and Maisa.  However, Maisa feels there is no future for them due to her heritage clashing with Sam’s law abiding life.

All hell breaks loose in the sleepy American town when a fierce snow storm engulfes the area along with some unpleasant visitors from big time Russian mobsters.

Join in the fun with Sam and Maisa and the rest of the townsfolk as they cope with the cold from the storm; heat from the passion growing between the characters and drama from the mobsters.

A sexy, fun 4/5* read and a fab new author find for me.
