From the moment Lilibet Ladner came into Sheriff Kane Saucier’s office he was mesmerized by her beauty.  Lilibet was intent on proposing a food contract with the Sheriff but seeing him up close and personal made her heart beat out of control.

The people of Kerrville County never allowed Lilibet to forget her limp that she had received from a childhood injury.  They refused to give her a chance to prove herself.  Being resourceful, Lilibet opened her own food service cart business.

Kane admired Lilibet’s survival skills; of course he knew that his department couldn’t accept a contract with her due to their varied eating schedules.  He didn’t want to disappoint Lilibet with his decision and wasn’t ready for her to leave his life.  He made the spontaneous decision to ask her out on a date.

Lilibet was ecstatic that Kane had asked her out on a date.  This was to be her first date; she hoped that it would end with her receiving her first kiss.  When Lilibet’s landlord comes in the Sheriff’s office demanding that Lilibet be evicted because she was running a business in her home Kane knows he must deliver the devastating news.

Will Kane provide Lilibet a solution to finding a new home?  Will she accept his offer?

A BROWN-EYED HANDSOME MAN is a part of the HELL YEAH! series that I believe is one of the best series I have ever read.  Sable Hunter creates her characters with unforgettable substinance .  How she weaves other supporting characters into her books is a work of a pure genius.  There is no way anyone can read one of these books and not want to read more.  I look forward to diving in the next installment of one of highly addiction HELL YEAH novels.

Other books in the Hell Yeah! series include:

#1 Cowboy Heat (Aron and Libby)

#2 Hot On Her Trail (Jacob and Jessie)

#3 Her Magic Touch (Joseph and Cady)

#4 Badass (Isacc and Avery)

#5 I’ll See You In My Dreams (Zane and Presley)

Joseph fears that his paralysis could be permanent; he questions whether he wants to live being half a man.  A friend recommends a local physical therapist; he explains that she uses both eastern and western medicine to heal her patients.  The treatment she has performed has ended with successful results; it is through a call to a higher power to heal her clients.

Cady accepts Joseph as a client.  Her heart goes out to his wounded soul; she knows that she will stop at nothing until he is completely healed.  Joseph sees Cady as his only hope at gaining back his life.  She is not his usual type he goes for but over time he sees her inner beauty radiate to her exterior appearance.   Will Cady’s and Joseph’s growing love stand a chance if he regains the full use of his legs?

HER MAGIC TOUCH (HELL YEAH!  BOOK 3) calls out to a person’s heart.  Cady and Joseph are two emotional characters that enable you to feel the pain they experience.  There was so many times in this book that I had to stop and gain control of my emotions for the heartbreak they experience is overwhelming.  THE HELL YEAH series is quickly becoming my favorite series this year.  This is the second I have read in the collection and each one keeps getting better.  Sable Hunter, you have done an outstanding job in writing the HELL YEAH! series!  I can’t wait for the next installment in this highly addictive series.
