Captain Daniel Chan straddles the fence that separates his true sexual inclination with a fierce determination that would make any bull rider envious. He still enjoys women and considers himself bisexual. Besides, working in a small town like Riceland doesn’t give Dan the option of coming out. He’s not sure how the department, or his neighbors, would react and has no reason to test the waters until he meets a man in need of some assistance, Mark.

Mark considers himself damaged goods. His last painful relationship left him with internal scars that still haven’t healed. Dan gives Mark a feeling of security he never expected to experience again. Can he trust his heart, body and soul to Dan’s tender care?

I absolutely love Lynn Lorenz’s newest release, No Good Deed. Dan isn’t your typical police officer. Being a Chinese American employed as a Captain on a small town police force was a nice twist to this role. I love how he could crack jokes with his neighbors; it made him feel like the person next door. His relationship with his Chief is also something that draws you in. They have a mutual respect and a great camaraderie that allows some comical conversations to take place. Then there is Mark’s relationship with Dan. It begins slow and smooth, gently building over time. I adored Mark and could clearly see why Dan was smitten. While Ms. Lorenz does deliver some sensual moments, she also includes suspense and action to keep the story flowing. No Good Deed is a page-turner you don’t want to miss.
