Book Description

Claire Parks has been very sick, but she's fine now—just fine—and ready to paint the town red. Well, pink. On her first excursion into the wild world of dating, she nets Bud, a tall, sexy, good-looking lumberjack. She won him fair and square, her prize for not dying. But after a weekend of wild sex, she discovers he's not what she thinks he is.
Undercover police officer Lieutenant Tyler "Bud" Morrison can't believe his eyes. What's a 'princess' doing in a dance club known for its rough trade? She needs rescuing, and rescuing women is what Bud does best. He saw Claire first—finders keepers. After a weekend of the hottest sex he's ever had, he's definitely keeping this one. When trouble comes her way, he pulls out all the stops to protect her. Except Claire doesn't want Bud at her back. She wants him in her bed.

Where has this author been all my adult reading life? Better yet, where have I been that I'm just recently discovering her? Well, it's all good now, because there's no stopping me from reading everything this author will ever produce. Sure, I've got a keeper shelf, but I've never vowed to buy a book just because a particular author's name graced the cover. I'm breaking that particular dry spell and claiming here and now that Lisa Marie Rice's books will always be a must buy for me. Here's why:

Claire Parks is a woman on a mission. Having been terminally ill most of her young life, she's more than ready to experience all the things she never had the opportunity to. Wild parties, the rougher side of life, you name it, she wants to experience it. Sex? Well, absolutely! She's on the prowl for a good time and when she meets undercover Lieutenant Bud Morrison at a club, she just knows she's safe and secure with him. When the good cop gives her a ride home, thinking a white trash guy like him could never get close to a princess like her, he's in for the surprise of his life when he gets an invite into her home. What proceeds is the best, no holds barred sex of his entire life. It was dirty, it was rough and it was a turning point for him and Claire both. He know's he's found something special and he's not about to let Claire slip through his fingers. When they each find out who the other really is though, will their new found love be enough to hold them together? Or will Claire's tragic past drive them apart?

This is not erotica as I have read it before by other authors. Rice consistently produces heartfelt and heart wrenching stories, with the perfect mix of naughty and nice, that just make me want to read them over and over.

4.0 out of 5 stars This Bud's for You 9 May 2008
This was a book I stumbled upon while looking around the reviews on Amazon. What a great discovery!
I've already ordered Lisa Marie Rice's "Midnight Man," which was the first in this trilogy; and "Midnight Angel," the third.
Midnight Run is a well-developed story with a macho cop and a woman who's battled life-threatening illness and is just now in her mid-20s healthy enough to spread her wings and live a little. They fall for each other immediately, but it's conceivable and the love scenes (okay SEX scenes :) are sizzling.
At first, Bud doesn't realize she's so fragile so he treats her as a normal grown-up sex object. And she loves that, having been coddled and smothered by the well-meaning attentions of her loved ones.
When things change and her beloved cop becomes a control freak, she has to take a stand. Won't ruin the story by letting any cats out of the bag.
Only, meow! I have to say this: if Bud's poetry recitation as he makes love to Claire doesn't make you smile or laugh, I don't know what will. Who would have thought an author could make iambic pentameter HOT?!! Probably better I didn't read these types of books in high school or I'd have made worse grades and gotten into far too much trouble :)
I believe one of these reviewers must have earned way too many traffic tickets since she has little to no appreciation or respect for cops. Whatever...We all have our own viewpoints but I hate that this reviewer also tells the identity of a victim in this story without even using a SPOILER alert to let those who MIGHT want to read this book know to skip the review.
Bud seems elemental, not as deep as Douglas, the "ugly" man (who is a friend of John, the hero in the first book of this trilogy, Midnight Man).

5.0 out of 5 stars A humorous, fast paced exciting read 12 Mar. 2014
By Peabody
Format:Kindle Edition
Another great 5 star read for me.

Claire Schuyler Parks has spent her growing up years very ill.

Now she is well, she is eager to come out from under the over protectiveness of her father. On her first attempt to take a walk on the wild side, she meets undercover police officer Lieutenant Tyler "Bud" Morrison, and it is lust at first sight!

Bud tries to withstand what he is feeling for Claire, as he does not do "sweet and innocent" but he fails.

Bud is, as usual with Lisa Marie Rice Heroes, all that is caveman super alpha!

~~He'd read somewhere that in the Middle Ages men used to hang the bloody sheets out the window after the wedding night.

S***, yeah. Absolutely. No flies on medieval men, no sir. Staking their claim and proving to the world whom the woman belonged to.


Poetry. She was going to read him poetry? Dear sweet God.

Bud plastered a smile on his face "Oh. Um, poetry. That's...ah...nice, honey" ~~

This book has an overlapping storyline with book 1, so it is a good idea to read it in order.

Again, like book 1, it is a humorous, fast paced exciting read, that engages you and makes you care about the characters.

4.0 out of 5 stars Not a bad quick read (book 2) 23 Aug. 2013
Format:Kindle Edition
This was pretty much like the first book only now it's Clare's and Bud's story.
Clare' s recovering from an illness that kept her incapacitated for quite some years and now she wants to let rip. Being independent, getting a job, her own home and popping her cherry.
Bud is a detective and a friend of John's (book 1) so you can he imagine another alpha male type. He spots Clare at a nightclub and knows she's out of her depth. He rescues her from men who keep trying to chat her up. He's in alpha mode and she's his princess. Thinking he's in for a one night stand he comes a cropper. She sweeps him of his feet.
Plenty of sex and some bonding with a bit of crime thrown in this wasn't a bad story.
