Hard Eight is a fantastic Plum novel and is one of my favorites :) This story is about Stephanie helping out her parent's neighbor. The neighbor's granddaughter Evelyn and great granddaughter Annie have disappeared so Stephanie agrees to help find them. In the process of locating Evelyn and Annie, Stephanie crosses paths with a dangerous individual by the name of Eddie Abruzzi. Eddie threatens Stephanie to try and get her to stop looking for Evelyn and Annie. One of my favorite parts of this book is the fact that Steph and Ranger finally hook up! I am a huge babe fan and hope that Steph and Ranger get a HEA. Ranger and Steph have a lot of chemistry together and I think that Ranger is more capable of helping her grow as an individual. In this book, you see just how far Ranger is willing to go to protect Steph.Overall I would give this book 5 stars for the plot, humor, and the fact that Ranger and Steph's relationship grows!
