Rachel North has stumbled onto documents that apparently belong to drug dealers, by the information listed, and she wants to do the right thing by handing it over to the police. Her life has become very complicated because now she may possibly become the next victim, due to the dealers, and suspected law enforcement, wanting her kept quiet. Rachel is now stuck with seven other women out in the woods, on a retreat, to be hidden away until she is needed to attend court. In protective custody, the police have given her the name Kitty LaManti, and but will use Kit for short. When she sees Ace sitting on top of a hill, she knows he looks familiar, but can’t place him until much later, when the danger begins.

Captain Aaron “Ace” Trainer, a retired Special Forces man, pulls an assignment to protect Rachel/Kitty from bad guys but his superiors don’t know he has a past with her. He feels the need to smooth over the past by protecting her, to make up for the abrupt ending to a one night stand. Ace is still dreaming of having her again and yet he makes the claim that she’s not his type. When they get back to civilization, he disappears after a beautiful night and Rachel is again left broken hearted, believing Ace is not the man she thought.

Hot on Her Tail is a quick tale of what can happen when you try to do your duty against the people abusing the system. These two characters are able to overcome their past, and rebuild a budding relationship that could have ended good or bad for them during their trek through the woods. The personal history provided about them is not a lot, but enough to gather what made the relationship fall apart, and the sex is spanking hot.

Ms. Kerce had wowed me again with her storytelling and I wanted this story to continue. There is quite a plot surrounding Rachel’s determination to do the right thing and the people just as determined to kill her off before she can testify for the prosecution. The title definitely fits this story perfectly, and I looking forward to seeing more from this author.
