USA TODAY bestselling author Julie Miller's new series launches with a lawman and social worker who team up to safeguard a baby
After a near-fatal shootout at his sister's wedding, third-generation lawman Niall Watson comes home to a baby in distress. The abandoned newborn in his neighbor's apartment sends the Kansas City PD criminologist into rescue mode once again.
Social worker Lucy McKane will do whatever it takes to protect the infant boy entrusted to her care. The tall, sexy ME next door may be clueless about her feelings for him, but Niall's the only one who can keep them safe. As a vengeful killer targets them, desire draws Lucy and Niall dangerously closer. Together, can they find justice and safeguard their newly created family?
I don't know if I have ever 'met' a couple, that are as perfect for each other, than Niall and Lucy are. So completely opposite, but complement each other. Niall, so smart, so brilliant, bright, and organized, logical, but so little human skills. And Lucy, she has the biggest heart, but in her own way, is as awkward as Niall is. But together they just melted my heart.
And how they take care Tommy, like he was their own baby. There are scenes with Niall and Tommy, that I didn't know if wanted to laugh out loud or sigh with adoration.
Yes, I am in head over heals with the characters in this new series. They are charming, witty, and charismatic. The humor is impeccable, the banter between the brother cracked me up, they are all very much different, with clear characteristics, but yet they all have the love for family, loyalty to their own, and caring for those who are dear to them.
The suspense builds up through the tale, the tension and danger accentuated as the clues come to light, and the culprits are narrowed down. The action is bloody, deadly, and brutal, but the brothers are doing what they can, to keep Lucy and Tommy safe, and find out what is going on.
Fantastic, alluring setting for the new series, with amiable characters, a murder attempt gone wrong, and edgy action.
