Claiming The Enemy (A Pulse Novel)



Piper Dawson has spent a lifetime living by other people’s rules.

She’s worked hard to get what she wants—a residency at her first choice hospital—and no one will ever tie her down again, not even her severe yet incredibly sexy supervisor, Dr. Alexander “Ace” Lennox.

Ace is done with love. He’s had his heart shattered, and he never wants to go there again. But when he’s inexplicably enticed by the sexy, tattooed woman with blue streaks in her hair and a perpetual smile on her lips, he figures that maybe he can keep it to just sex.

The problem? He thrives on control, and Piper dances just around the edges of it.

But when they’re together, control is the first thing to go…

Each book in the Pulse series is a standalone, full-length story that can be enjoyed out of order.

Lauren Hawkeye, let me just first say I love you. ♥ You are on my list of favorite knotty authors and I always know I’m going to get lost in a good story be it novella or full length. And not only did you write about my most favorite subject…Dominant men, you took it one further and made him a doctor. Nothing like a kinky alpha medical professional to get MY pulse jumping.

Piper Dawson is doing her residency at Hampton General in the emergency department. She loves her job, with one minor exception, her boss. Dr Alexander “Ace” Lennox doesn’t seem to like her very much. He’s the most anal-retentive jerk she’s ever met, and to make matters worse, she always putting her foot in her mouth with him. Even when she tries to do something nice like buy him his favorite Cokes, he still finds a reason to snipe at her.

She’s sitting in Score, the sports bar across from the hospital when HE walks in with his mother. Her plan to make a quiet escape is thwarted when the doctor who dated her then cheated on her and has been making her life hell since she’s dumped him, makes his way over to her to start trouble. She scoots in with Ace and hopes he plays along. Once Ace sees that it’s Dr Alvarado, he puts his arm around her and wards him off. After dealing with Ace’s snotty mother treating her with disdain, she’s invited to dinner as his girlfriend.

Later that night, they have some hot not-so-vanilla sex and agree that it’s a one night only deal. Ace was previously married, and after his wife died, he swore there would never be another. But a resident who’s quirky with blue streaks in her blonde hair and brings him a coke when he’s thirsty may just be the one to change all that.

This is the third book in the Pulse series, and true to my form lately, I’m coming in on book 3. Which means that I have Engaging the Bachelor by Cathryn Fox and Seducing the Boss by Mari Carr to read and review as well. Which just brings my inner Snoopy out to dance. Brazen couldn’t have picked a better threesome for this series! I hope there will be more. As a former Registered Nurse, (I’m now disabled) I love medical stories. And this one was wonderful!

About Lauren Hawkeye

Lauren Hawkeye/ Lauren Jameson never imagined that she’d wind up telling stories for a living… though when she looks back, it’s easy to see that she’s the only one who is surprised. Always “the kid who read all the time”, Lauren made up stories about her favorite characters once she’d finished a book… and once spent an entire year narrating her own life internally. No, really. But where she was just plain odd before publication, now she can at least claim to have an artistic temperament.

Lauren lives in the Rocky Mountains of Alberta, Canada with her husband, toddler, pit bull and idiot cat, though they do not live in an igloo, nor do they drive a dogsled. In her nonexistent spare time Lauren can be found knitting (her husband claims that her snobby yarn collection is exorbitant), reading anything she can get her hands on, or sweating her way through spin class. She loves to hear from her readers!
