Ivy Danforth is out from under her Colonel father's overprotective control, and she's making it count. Big time. She's taken the summer off to travel through Australia with her bestie and experiencing all that life has to offer—when you’re not under constant military surveillance. She wants to end her summer with some sexy fun, and she has just the hottie in mind.
Seth Rodrigo is ex-Special Forces working undercover and keeping an eye on Ivy as a special favor to her father. All he has to do is not give the game away and reveal who he really is. And especially not give into the hunger that's burning through his careful control...
Then they're forced into protective custody. Alone. Together. For four days. And this time, the Colonel's daughter isn't taking no for an answer...

Seth Rodrigo owes Colonel Danforth a lifetime of favours but this latest one that requires him to go undercover and watch over the man’s daughter is quite literally, a trip to the edge and into a sea of uncertainty and chaos – everything that’s against his ordered and routine life. But he doesn’t stand a chance against Ivy Danforth who is more than a handful and knows it.

A quick and funny read, The Colonel’s Daughter in many ways, reads like a very old school Harlequin category novel(ette) with a virgin heroine and a larger than life hero who is wrestled out of his self-control by the woman’s antics. The suspense isn’t the focus here, but rather the love-hate game that Ivy and Seth find themselves entangled in. There are aspects in the story which seem contrived and abrupt – as is the case with many category books – but Amy Andrews excels in portraying contemporary attitudes to relationships and emotions…while giving her readers a rushed but walking-into-the-sunset sort of HEA.
