A Fine Specimen, by Lisa Marie Rice. ARC Review.

Previously released as "Taming Nick"

Tough-as-nails police lieutenant Alex Cruz is all business and all brawn. Cops and criminals alike tremble before him, which is just the way he likes it. He has to be harder than the hardest criminals to root the bad guys out of his city.

Then his boss forces him to work with a scholar who is studying dominance in law enforcement. Alex doesn't have time to babysit a pencil-dick geek writing a useless dissertation. He's busy doing real police work. Putting bad guys behind bars.

But when the pencil-dick geek turns out to be the scholarly but gorgeous and alluring Caitlin Summers, Alex realizes that the only thing he wants trembling is Caitlin . . . . naked, and beneath him.

The minute Caitlin lays eyes on the smoldering, charismatic Alex, she knows that focusing on her dissertation is going to be harder than she anticipated--not to mention dangerous. Because with a track record like Alex's, the bad guys are always looking for a soft spot--and she's the perfect soft spot.

When Caitlin comes under attack, Alex realizes that his most important mission is keeping Caitlin safe . . . and making her his own.

**Note: A Fine Specimen was previously published by another publisher. The new edition has been lightly edited and updated.**

Lieutenant Alejandro Cruz has dragged himself out of the worst childhood imaginable, with the help of a mentor.  He is now a very respected cop and expected to be the next Captain. When said mentor asks for a favour it must be granted,  no matter how difficult it might be, or how much it will interfere with his work.
Caitlin Summers is an intellectual, studying the different types of personality needed in law enforcement . Lieutenant Cruz is just about as alpha as a man could be. 
This story is a study of opposites . A very over protective  but solitary hero and a woman in well over her depth.  A sexy and entertaining read,  where you might want to knock the hero round the head for being dense.  But also applaud him for giving his woman a choice.  Especially when he would much rather drag her to his cave. 



Lisa Marie Rice is eternally 30 years old and will never age. She is tall and willowy and beautiful. Men drop at her feet like ripe pears. She has won every major book prize in the world. She is a black belt with advanced degrees in archaeology, nuclear physics, and Tibetan literature. She is a concert pianist. Did I mention her Nobel Prize? Of course, Lisa Marie Rice is a virtual woman and exists only at the keyboard when writing erotic romance. She disappears when the monitor winks off.
