Product Description

Some Rules Were Made to Be Broken

Photographer Nick Coltrane broke Daisy Parker's heart nine years ago. And now he wants to hire her as his bodyguard. She wants to tell him where he can go, but her fledgling company desperately needs the cash flow. She once broke her own rules, only to watch his sexy self run for the door. Providing round-the-clock protection for him is out of the question . . . right?

Nick needs Daisy around to keep the hired thugs who are out for his blood from actually getting it. If he can make amends for the way he screwed up nine years ago in the process, then so much the better. Except time has done nothing to dull the memory of how Daisy once rocked his world off its axis, and her cocky attitude and mouthwatering curves still have the power to turn his brain to mush.

Now two people who once were friends and used to be lovers will discover whether love and trust can come from a passion that breaks every rule.

5.0 out of 5 stars as good as the other baby's 14 July 2007
Format:Mass Market Paperback|Verified Purchase
as my title states, i believe that this book was just as good as be my baby and baby im yours. both characters are extremely likable and the chemistry is sizzling. i dare you not to fall in love with the hero. rather than just boy meets girl, instant attraction, this time this has a backstory which adds an interesting history. the barest minimum is that on the night of the hero's, (Nick Coltrane), sister's wedding he and his former stepsister Daisy Parker sleep together. Nick behaves horribly afterwards and Daisy doesn't know why because she believes she is in love with him and vice versa. she is nineteen at the time. our story begins nine years later. Daisy is now running a Security Specialists Firm, (bodyguarding)and suprises of suprises Nick shows up needing guarding. i thought that that was an empowered original way of thinking as it is almost always the other way around. as the story progresses we also learn why Nick reacted the way he did on the night he and Daisy slept together. in short, its witty, sizzling and so loveable that it could curl your toes. A must read!!!

4.0 out of 5 stars easy romance 26 Aug 2012
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
This book is a easy romance, a great read if you are looking for a love story with a hint of danger. It's nice to read about Daisy, a bodyguard, in the protecting role and taking charge when dangerous situations arise. Despite this Nick still has the urge to protect her from the danger he is in, even though he employed her to be his bodyguard!

4.0 out of 5 stars A Good, Quickie 23 May 2004
By A Customer
Format:Mass Market Paperback
The story was really cute and quick. Although Nick is not a very nice guy in Daisy's eyes in the beginning you begin to fall in the love with him and see what Daisy sees. If you are looking for a book that will add a little love and romance to your life this is a pretty good subsitute.

5.0 out of 5 stars Another great BABY book by Susan! 27 April 2000
By pontmarie - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Mass Market Paperback
As a wedding reception winds down at the ritzy Mark Hopkins hotel inSan Francisco, nineteen-year-old Daisy Parker loses her virginity toNick Coltrane, her former stepbrother. Unfortunately, the haze ofpleasure vanishes as Nick casually gets dressed and recants all the love words he fed Daisy, then takes off, leaving her hurt, humiliated, and disillusioned.
Nine years later, it all comes back to haunt her when Nick, now a famous San Francisco photographer, seeks Daisy's services as a security specialist. The former Oakland PD officer wants nothing to do with him, but since her security business is barely off the ground and she can't in good faith, leave Nick's safety up in the air, she reluctantly takes the assignment and moves in with him....
As Daisy struggles to keep Nick in one piece, she becomes part of his world, finding out that the man she's tried to forget for nearly a decade is not the womanizing monster she's made him out to be, while Nick gains more and more respect for the woman who keeps saving his life....
Daisy was a kick to get to know. She is strong and courageous, knows she's damn good at what she does, and lets Nick know it all the time. At the same time, she is so vulnerable where he is concerned that I couldn't help but feel for her. Even when Nick is telling that he loves her (both in and out of bed this time), Daisy can't let herself dream that he means it and vows that he will not break her heart. Which, of course, is just what he does.
Daisy is not the only one who's tried to forget that night nine years ago. Nick, confident that he'd gotten Daisy out of his system, is bowled over by the cocky woman who fires his blood and can flip him over and send him flying across the room. He realizes he should have told her sooner the truth about Douglass and the photographs, and never mind goons or his work. His world really comes crashing down when Daisy leaves him.
The secondary characters, including Nick's sister Maureen and her husband, and Daisy's friends, add to the plot and become integral parts of the story. The only parts of the book where I had to invoke suspension of disbelief were whenever J. Fitzgerald Douglass appeared; he went just a little over the top in his mafia-boss impersonation, and the fact that a lot of circumstances had to align properly in order for the picture in question to be that explosive.
Otherwise, this book is pure Andersen, the chemistry between Nick and Daisy is red-hot, the love scenes even more so, and the language a little raw. Suffice it to say that when Nick and Daisy make comments regarding "the thinker" and "the Big Guy" they're not exactly referring to another person in the book. So far, I have liked all of Susan Andersen's books and this was no exception. And it's set in San Francisco - what more could you ask for? END

2.0 out of 5 stars A Romance and a Comedy? 11 May 2000
By L. Ponder - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Mass Market Paperback
Nick and Daisy had a brief relationship in the past. He took Daisy's virginity, breaks her heart?, and leaves without any plesantries. Nine years later, Nick hires Daisy as his bodyguard. And, the fireworks are renewed.
Baby Don't Go was not a good read, for me. I had problems with the stereotypes. Daisy's a security specialist, wears combat boots, cuts her own hair with manicure scissors, skips makeup. Nick as a one-time rich, playboy-type, calls Daisy Blondie, etc.; and, he has nicknames for certain parts of his own person. Daisy's male secretary, Reggie, and Reggie's friends meet a certain stereotype also. Then there's the "goons", and the pillar-of-society bad guy. Maybe they are all meant to be funny, but the humor was beyond me.
Love/sex scenes, to me, seemed long, detailed, boring. I found myself skimming them. I just didn't see the relationship develop. I didn't see where the feelings Daisy and Nick had for each other, came from. Neither one, were characters I liked, or related to.
The plot, was secondary to relationships. The secondary characters, Mo (Nick's sister), and her husband Reid, were the reason I kept reading the book. And, Ms. Andersen's writing has a certain flow, that kept me reading, also. I just wish I had enjoyed the story, as much as the writing.

5.0 out of 5 stars One of romance's stars 30 April 2000
By Harriet Klausner - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Mass Market Paperback
Though Security Specialist Daisy Parker desperately needs the money, she wonders if she is making a huge mistake by agreeing to guard photographer Nick Coltrane. Her mother and his father shared a short ugly marriage, but worse was that night of love they shared before he dumped her as a one-night stand almost a decade ago.

During a wedding of the rich and famous, Nick inadvertently took a picture that prominently shows future ambassador Douglass in a compromising position with a female that is not his wife. Douglass sends thugs to obtain the picture, but Nick prefers to sell it to the media in order to obtain cash to help his financially strapped sister. Daisy reluctantly agrees to guard Nick, but neither knew their sexual attraction would explode into a deep love for one another.

With her "baby" novels (see BABY, I'M YOURS and BE MY BABY), Susan Anderson has become a fan favorite for her rousing romantic romps. Her latest tale, BABY, DON'T GO, contains the usual humor, wit, and excitement expected in one of Ms. Anderson's books. The shared past of the lead couple makes their present sizzle with discord yet cannot stop their growing attraction to each other. The support cast adds cause and humor to an entertaining fun to read contemporary romance.

3.0 out of 5 stars Not Andersen's Best "Baby" Book 26 Jun 2000
By Christine Shaw - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Mass Market Paperback
This is the third in a series of "Baby" Books for author Susan Andersen. Although it is an OK read it can't compare to her previous books, Baby, I'm Yours and Be My Baby. I haven't figured out which golden oldie Susan will name her next book after. The story takes place during a one week period. After four years as an Oakland police officer, Daisy Parker had retired to open her own business as a security specialist. After not seeing Daisy for nine years, her ex-step brother, Nick Coltrane saunters into her office on a Monday morning requesting her services. Nick, a well-known and reputable photographer in the San Francisco area, recently took pictures at a society wedding and one of the pictures proved to be damaging to a local VIP. In his quest to obtain control of the negatives, the VIP sends out his goons to do some real damage to Nick. Totally ticked off by his initial treatment from the goons, Nick decides to sell the negatives to the tabloids, something he has never done before. But besides his anger he also needs cash to help his sister out of a financial jam. Nick is the only man ever to make Daisy's heart beat faster. But after callously taking her virginity nine years earlier then telling her to "get over it" and grow up, Nick is the last man she wants to see again. But the $4,000 retainer he offers her is difficult to resist. So begins a week of fighting off the bad guys and developing a relationship between Nick and Daisy. Sounds like a good story? Well, it was only OK. I do so enjoy Susan's use of down-to-earth everyday language and her love scenes are always great. I also enjoyed the fact that the leading lady was the "protector" in this book, BUT not at the expense of making the hero look like a wimp! I would recommend you read BIY or BMB. And Susan's website lists the following books for reissue in the near future: Present Danger --Dec.,2000; Obsessed--July, 2001; On Thin Ice--Dec.2001.

2.0 out of 5 stars Not up to the standards of Susan Andersens past work. 19 May 2000
By A Customer - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Mass Market Paperback
This book disappointed me. The characters were so flat and lifeless that I had a hard time sympathizing with anyone. The secondary characters and sub plot felt thrown in just to give the hero and heroine an excuse to act reckless. And all of the secondary characters were too stereotypical. The thugs, the gay friends; no one struck me as realistic. I kept reading, hoping it would improve, unfortunately it never did.
