Editorial Reviews

From the Author

Dear Reader,

Sexy as sin and impossible to forget--that's THE MAGNIFICENT McCOY MEN! First brothers Marc, Mitch and Jake stole our romantic hearts. Now the youngest McCoy, David, is proving he's just as much a McCoy as his brothers.

In You Only Love Once, maverick cop David McCoy never dreams that the magnificent woman he undresses one night will show up at the precinct in uniform the next morning. Worse, Kelli Hatfield, David's sexy new partner, is determined to prove herself his equal--on the job and in his bed. Has the precinct Casanova finally met his match?

We'd love to hear what you think of the youngest McCoy. Write us at P.O.And be sure to keep an eye out for the next and final book of the series, featuring stubbornly sexy Connor McCoy, available in July. Here's wishing you love, romance and many happy endings. Lori & Tony Karayianni aka Tori Carrington

From the Back Cover

David McCoy: Maverick cop and precinct Casanova. He loves his job and he loves the ladies. But he's never tried mixing the two before....

Kelli Hatfield: She knows it isn't easy for a woman to make it in a man's world. If only she hadn't already made it with her new partner....

David McCoy likes to live on the edge. But even he never guessed that the gorgeous blonde he took to bed one night would end up assigned as his partner the next day! Sexy Kelli Hatfield is spirited, independent...and fully determined that their one-night stand will be just that--one night. Only, she hasn't counted on David's powers of persuasion....

Format: Mass Market Paperback
Kelli Hatfield has just returned to Washington, DC after spending several years with the NYC police force. She decides, this one time, to throw caution to the wind and have a one night stand with the handsome man she meets in a local cop hangout.
David McCoy is known as the Casanova Cop. He's stunned to find that the woman he met and bedded the night before is none other than his newly-assigned partner!
Kelli tries to smooth things over by telling David she'll act as if that night never happened. David says "nothing doing" as he'd like nothing other than to pick up where they left off.
But Kelli knows what would happen should her father find out she was dating the son of his old nemesis and doesn't want to take the risk. However, the heart has a way of washing away all resolve.
When a series of sex crimes results in the death of a woman, Kelli volunteers for the task force, thinking not only will she help find the DC Exterminator, as he's become known, but she also has something personal at stake. Her mother was killed by a similar sexual predator years ago - a crime which remains unsolved.
Tori Carrington pulls out all the stops in this seductive story of nonstop action and sexy repartee. Although this is #3 of four books in the Magnificent McCoy Men series, the books stands on its own quite nicely and the reader never feels lost.
This was a thoroughly enjoyable read from start to finish. It's recommended for anyone wanting a quick, satisfying read, and a darned good story.

David McCoy is DC's mad-man cop. He takes risks and ignores rules, but he's a man of honor who's good at what he does. And he's about to get a new partner...ex-New York cop, Kelli Hatfield. A blond bombshell who packs a weapon and enough sexual heat to warm up the coldest of hearts. David is falls in instant lust. But the more he gets to know Kelli, the more he's feeling something...something more than lust, something intense. Something big. David and Kelli are out to catch a murder and catching something else in the process...could it be love?
Tori Carrington's The Magnificent McCoys is a series that never fails to delight...and this new installment, You Only Love Once, is no exception. A great story by a great author!

Format: Mass Market Paperback
Bachelor of the Year, else wise known as Casanova Cop, David McCoy loves the beauties for a night or two, and then leave them behind. That is, until the beautiful Kelli Hatfield captures his attention with her sensuous pool playing. The next morning he shows up for work and to meet his newly assigned partner...one Kelli Hatfield. Despite his determination to protect her from danger, Kelli's daring spirit and sexy moves can't be ignored. Suddenly the local precinct's heart breaker finds himself standing outside Kelli's locked door bribing her overweight pooch with doggie treats.
One night stands had never been Kelli's style, but moving to D.C. means change. Kelli decides that the delectable David McCoy would make a marvelous start to her new life. She hadn't unpacked her boxes or put sheets on the bed, but that didn't dampen her ardor for this gorgeous man. Then she shows up for work the next morning and meets her new partner. She is not happy to learn that she slept with him the night before. Nor does she appreciate his attitude about women cops. Soon Kelli accepts a dangerous undercover assignment tracking a serial killer...that is, when she's not fighting her urges to be under the covers with David.
Husband/wife writing team Toni and Lori comprise the author Tori Carrington. Their skillful blend of dynamic prose, a truly "guy" point of view, and ever surprising plots guarantee an excellent read certain to satisfy the most demanding romance fan. Carrington's zany characters deliver an extraordinary romance filled with passion, tension and true dramatic flair. Highly recommended.

By D. K. Stokes on December 6, 2008
Format: Mass Market Paperback
This is obviously part of a series--no doubt I'd have liked it better if I'd been acquainted with the other characters. Take out all the obscure references to previous books, though, and it would have been a solid 4-star story.

The hero and heroine meet in a bar and have a one-night stand--she's just back in D.C. & feeling reckless. The next morning, they discover they're new partners on the metro P.D. And that their fathers loathe each other (Hatfield & McCoy--literally: that's their names).

Then there's some back and forth, with the heroine doing that thing that bugs me so much: they argue, they (seemingly) resolve the argument, then the next day, they have the identical argument. Again. And again. I know people do this in real life--I don't like it any better in fiction.

But the characters are engaging, and it's a cute story.
