Book Review: Shannon's Law by Emma Calin

A sexy aristocrat. A wild-child inner city cop. A crime wave of passion.
A steamy romance novel introducing a sassy female police officer who locks up criminals and always gets her man.
The second book in the "Passion Patrol" series featuring hot cops, hot crime and hot romance. Following the success of "Knockout!" the drama in "Shannon's Law" revolves around another feisty female cop - Shannon Aguerri.
Moved out from the city after one-too-many maverick missions, Shannon discovers there's more going on in the sleepy country village than meets the eye. The son of a local aristocrat arouses suspicion of drug crime activity... but his widower father arouses more animal instincts!
Could she really mix with the British royal family? Can she risk her heart and career on yet another high risk unauthorised investigation? Can she get justice for an innocent boy? Dare a kid from the gutter dream of being a countess?
Shannon's Law - The action romance novel of 2014.
Wild child inner city cop Shannon Aguerri walks a dangerous line between her methods and justice. When the bosses lose their nerve, she is transferred to green pastures to play out the role of a routine village cop. In Fleetworth-Green she encounters signs of people and drug trafficking and homes in on serious millionaire criminals.
As a loner she has attracted men but nothing has stuck. When she meets Spencer, the hunky and widowed Earl of Bloxington, there is an immediate rapport between them. Their social differences mean nothing to their passion and need. Already in the mix is an upper class female rival who has long plotted her way into the Earl's bed. The jealousy is an evil shade of green and the anger is a violent scarlet.
Often inhibited by a sense of duty and honour, Spencer is slow to reveal his feelings. When Shannon confronts him with the need to choose between her word and that of her rival, he does not immediately support her.
All the same, when they are forced together to carry out a desperate rescue mission, their love is stronger than everything ranged against them.
My Thoughts:
This is one book that totally lives up to its tag line. There was plenty of hot sex, hot crimes, and hot cops. However, I found the heroine Shannon to be unexpectedly vulnerable in some ways, and I didn't expect that. To me, there's a hint of a Cinderella story here. You can't help but like Shannon and want the best for her. 
Spence is a little more reserved, but certainly he knows a good thing when he finds Shannon. The supporting characters are interesting and well drawn, and I liked the ones I was supposed to like and disliked the others. The plot is well defined and laid, and brings everything to a satisfactory conclusion. It's snappy paced; it doesn't drag which I like. 
If you like the idea of hot sex and hot cops, better check this one out.
