The job should have been easy—patrol a swank beach that serves as a backyard for Maui’s rich, kick out the riffraff, and get a tan in the process. But rent-a-cop Samantha Winters didn’t anticipate a deliciously grumpy cop, Sergeant Grady Roark, who comes down to the beach to bust her chops and instead leaves her breathless…and wondering why the one man who could help her seems determined to thwart her at every turn.

Grady is keeping secrets from Sam that have him walking the line between attraction and duty. But when Sam becomes the target of a shadowy organization, Grady will have to choose between the law and the temptation of a woman who has him breaking every rule he’s ever known.

The job should have been easy, but when the bullets start flying, Sam learns nothing is as easy as it seems when you’re a Gun for Hire.

“Why John Deacon, Sam?” Grady’s hands tightened on the steering wheel.
I threw my hands up. “It could be Jesus Christ himself signing my paycheck and I’d still be doing it for the same reasons! The job works for my family. What is your problem with John Deacon? And don’t tell me nothing—you owe me more than that.”
“Maybe I’m just jealous.” Grady stared ahead. “Like you said.”
My stomach did a loop. “Don’t use your charm on me, I’m immune—”
“You think I’m charming?”
“Hell no, I don’t! And particularly not when you’re avoiding my question.”
“But you said I had charm.” He tilted his head and gave me a long, sly look from the corner of his eyes. His teeth flashed white from that tanned face and I nearly had to fan myself when I realized I loved the feeling of Grady teasing me.
I threw my hands up in the air. “I give up!”
He wanted to talk about confusing? All I knew about Grady prior to this day was that he was six-foot-two of gorgeous and about as warm as a polar bear on the North Pole in January. And now—

Interview with J J Montgomery
What is your favorite part of this book and why?

There is a scene in the book where Samantha commits a felony right in front of Grady, in an effort to find a new lead. It’s not her smartest move, but it’s a turning point for her and Grady’s relationship. Suddenly Grady, this by-the-book cop, is forced to choose his rule book or trust in this woman who has turned his life upside down. And the scene happens with the humor I love from both of them – giving each other hell and loving every minute of it.

If you could spend time with a character from your book whom would it be? And what would you do during that day?

Uh, do I have to be married in this scenario? If this is Pretendistan and I’m not married, I’m desperately in love with Kai, Grady’s partner and the man Sam’s sister secretly loves. He’s just that perfect romance novel guy – strong and brave and considerate and I’d always write that he picks his socks up off the floor and does the dishes willingly.  

If you could have been the author of any book ever written, which book would you choose?

Bet Me by Jennifer Cruisie. She’s said herself that it’s the best romance she could have written, and she might be right. It’s wonderful.

Are your characters based off real people or did they all come entirely from your imagination?

Almost all of them have some resemblance to someone I know. A nervous habit, a tic, a sense of humor…I borrow from everyone I know. Beware becoming my friend! You’ll end up in a book.

What made you want to become a writer?

My Uncle was a screenwriter in Hollywood and he just believed in me, believed I could do this. I’d never be here if not for my Uncle Dave.
