Romance on the Go
Dana Hunt’s always been adamant about not using her cell phone while driving. However, late for an appointment, she makes an exception. Her car collides with who she believes is a homeless man. Despite his shabby appearance and unshaven look, Dana can’t help but think what a great looking guy he is. He won’t accept her help with taking him to the ER so she leaves him her business card.
Undercover cop, Ian Kincaide knows he shouldn’t be admiring women while he’s on the job, but Dana Hunt captures his attention. He plans to ask her out, however Dana’s got this thing about cops, and it’s not one in Ian’s favor. Her father was a police officer killed in the line of duty. Since then she’s vowed never to date one just in case it develops into a relationship.
Can Ian convince her to break that vow?
They shuffled around to the slow beat of the music without saying a word. When the band finally stopped playing, he whispered in her ear, “Don’t know about you, but I’m ready to leave.”
She nodded. “Yeah, me too.”
“I’ll pay the bill, and how about I meet you out front?”
He watched her walk away before he signaled their waiter. Ian caught sight of her outside on the pavement. She was the most beautiful woman he’d ever seen. After he’d paid, he walked outside to join her.
“Thank you for the meal, and the dancing. Both were wonderful.”
“Where are you parked?” she asked.
“Down the road.”
“I was lucky to get the spot right there.” She pointed a couple of cars away from where they stood.
He walked beside her and they stopped when they arrived at her car. She turned to him. He leaned in and kissed her, running his tongue over those luscious lips and tasting the honey from the baklava she’d eaten earlier.
“You want to come back to my place for a nightcap?” he asked her.
“I should tell you that I never have sex on a first date.”
“But this is a business meeting,.”
She grinned at him.
“So how many dates does a guy have to take you on before he gets to make love to you?”
She held up three fingers.
He kissed her again.
“Then it looks like I’m going to need to take you on two more tonight.”
She laughed. “You are one of the funniest guys I’ve ever met.”
“See what you would have missed had you stuck to your promise not to date a cop.”
She put her hand over his mouth. “Don’t ruin everything and remind me what I’m doing. I’ll deal with the consequences later.”
“So will it be your place or mine?” he asked.
“You mean for our next two dates?”
He looked at his watch, trying to think of something funny again because that was obviously the way to win her over.
“Think fast because we have two dates to get in before we head there,” was all he could muster up at the last minute.
“Mine, and how about we take my car and I can give you a ride back to pick up your car—”
“In the morning,” he said quickly.
“Don’t you ever take no for an answer?”
“Yes, but you do crazy things to me.”
“Get in before I realize what an idiot I am.”
She walked around to the driver’s side of her car and popped open the door for him. He slid in beside her.
“Let’s count the drive to your place as date number two. And then for date number three, maybe we’ll have some coffee at your place.”
“Do you think we’ll manage to get it brewed and have time to drink it before we rip one another’s clothes off?”
“Fuck, I hope not.”

Just because a lady knocks a handsome guy off his feet doesn't mean she wants to pursue a chance at romance…
When Dana Hunt bumped Ian Kincade with her car, she thought he was a homeless guy with the most gorgeous hazel eyes and perfect white teeth she'd ever seen. She offered to take him to the emergency room, but he just wanted her to leave him alone—for now. When seven weeks pass and Ian shows up at Dana's work to ask her out, he clears up the mystery that had surrounded him. He's a cop and didn't want Dana blowing his cover, but that assignment's over and he now wants to take the much surprised Dana out on a date.
There's just one problem—Dana's dad was a cop who died in the line of duty. The lady has one rule: she never dates cops because it means she'll never have to suffer the heartbreak her family went through when her father died. So Ian has his work cut out for him if he's going to get Dana to break her own dating rule.
I can always expect an engaging read from Vanessa Devereaux and she doesn't disappoint with this 38 page Evernight Romance on the Go story. Despite the short length, I never found Dana and Ian's characters wanting. There was warmth, humor, a steamy bedroom scene, and a life lesson all wrapped up in a tale that makes a perfect read for lunchtime, train commute, or bedtime story. You can't go wrong with CONFESSION OF LOVE. You'll only wish you could spend more time in the company of its cast of characters.

Ian Kincaide is undercover and chasing a suspect when he walks off a curb and straight into a car. Dana Hunt breaks her cardinal rule and reaches for her cell phone while she's driving. The resulting thump she heard was a man. Terrified of what she's done, she tries to convince this dirty, homeless looking man that he should let her take him to a hospital. He refuses but she leaves him her business card if he needs her to take care of him. When Ian is finally able to follow up and meet her in person, she informs him she doesn't date cops. So where does that leave Ian?
Dana has good reasons to avoid falling in love with a police officer. Her father had died in the line of duty and it destroyed her family. Ian has strong reasons to believe she is the woman he's been looking for and he hopes he can change her mind. Ian is a great character with determination and humor. The story revolves about how he uses his nephew to meet her again to get her interested enough to break her own rules. Ian is very inventive and funny. Dana is likeable and she's able to laugh at his obvious machinations even as she tries to send him away. The story is fast paced and well written. It's a fun, easy read. Enjoy
