HE WILL POSSESS HER

Port Flannery is a harbor town off the coast of Washington state—quiet, picturesque, and just big enough to hide in for a while. At least that's what Emma Sands hopes when she takes a room above the local cafe. In Port Flannery, no one knows why Emma and her young daughter fled New Orleans. No one can guess how terrified she is that the danger she and Gracie left behind is drawing nearer every day.

Emma's right to be scared. Even as she finds new friends and an unexpected ally in the rugged, compelling Sheriff Donnelly, her old life is waiting to intrude. Because the obsession that drove her from New Orleans will track her down anywhere, even a place as remote as this. And this time, there will be nowhere left to run. . .

Very good mystery with a strong female lead. Interesting characters fill the small town setting. A strong but flawed leading man added a nice layer of characterization. l liked this one.more
This fun and involving romantic suspense story from Susan Andersen features a hunky hero with a hook--that's right, one hand and one hook. Sheriff Elvis Donnelly (we need more heroes named Elvis) is six-feet-six of solid muscle with laser-blue eyes and thick, dark hair. He also has a metal hook in place of one hand, and an angry, jagged scar on his handsome face. When a car bomb ended his big city law enforcement career, Elvis returned to his Washington state hometown of Port Flannery and became the local sheriff. Always an outcast, due to his size and his mother's reputation as a prostitute, Elvis' injuries and scars have made him even more of a loner. That all changes when a sassy blonde with a sexy Southern drawl and an irresistible young daughter storm into his life and move into the same boarding house where he lives. Emma Sands and her daughter Gracie left New Orleans in the rearview mirror and came across country to find a safe and secure new life. Elvis' lawman sensibilities are on full alert as he tries to learn more about Emma and her daughter's move so far from their home. His male awareness of the bodacious and beautiful Emma adds fuel to the fire, and he also finds himself twisted around the tiny little finger of the adorable Gracie. The big man falls in a big way, but he is afraid to trust that Emma sees him as a whole, strong man, not just a wounded warrior in need of tender loving care. When it comes to TLC, Elvis gives as good as he gets! Threats from Emma's past and unresolved issues between Elvis and his mother are roadblocks in the way of the true happiness of a man, a woman, and a child who deserve a second chance at a life fulfilled. Great characters make this a very enjoyable read.more
Emma Sands is on the run from her creepy guardian who is obsessed with her and has been secretly videotaping her for the last 14 years. She also suspects that he had killed her husband and brother. So she takes off from New Orleans with her 3 year old daughter, Grace, and the videotapes and after getting on the wrong ferry, ends up in Port Flannery, Washington, when her car breaks down. After a confrontation with the dishonest auto mechanic, Emma decides to settle into small town life for a short while with her daughter and eventually meets big tough Sheriff Elvis Donnelly, a 6 foot 6 inch hunka-hunka-burning-love. Elvis had a difficult childhood and was the town bad boy. He became a successful cop in nearby Seattle, only to return to town after being seriously injured by a car bomb. Elvis' scarred face and prosthetic arm have further distanced him from the community that has a hard time accepting him.When Emma and Elvis meet the sparks fly and the attraction is palpable. Elvis is convinced she is running away from something and decides to keep a close eye on her. Little Gracie plays quite a prominent role in this book and I have to issue a warning: If you don't like baby-talk or children in books then avoid Exposure. Up until I read this book I would have been one of those who would avoid this book like the plague but I was absolutely charmed by Gracie. When she kisses Elvis' scar on his face and says "owie" my heart just melted (yeah, I'm a sap). And she's not an 'adorable perfect child' type that I detest. She had her bratty moments.I really liked Elvis. I liked how Emma never really saw his scars, and just accepted him and was instantly attracted to him. The secondary characters were not too quirky, the plot moved along quickly with some snappy dialog and the sex scenes were very hot. But there was no real mystery to solve since the bad guys were pretty obvious. Exposure is set near my home east of Seattle so I could see that Andersen did her research well since I have this urge to take a ride on a ferry to the San Juan islands in the near future. (Grade: B+)more
I read this book several years ago and the story still stays with me. Sheriff Donnelly didn't have a chance with Emma and Grace! The cast of characters are endearing and the tension between Elvis and Emma is palpable.more
