An FBI agent must protect his ex and her newborn baby in the latest saga by USA TODAY bestselling author Delores Fossen
FBI agent Drury Ryland is no stranger to surprises. But upon returning to his family's cattle ranch in Texas, he's confronted with the ghosts of his pastand a threat to his future. Caitlyn Denson is the beautiful woman who broke his heart and the last person Drury expected to reunite with. But his ex didn't arrive at Silver Creek Ranch alone.
With a killer on her trail and a newborn daughter in her arms, Caitlyn must put aside her tumultuous history with Drury and focus on survival. Drury feels obligated to protect the family he never had, but professional boundaries begin to blur as their enemy shifts into stark focus.
From the very first scene, the story put me on the edge of my seat with the fierce, savage action and held me there till the very end of the book. Every moment of the story filled with adrenaline and high 'fighting for your life' energy, like this whole series has been, took my breath away. To say that the action is non-stop doesn't even describe it correctly, as it seems like one intense explosion that lasts for the time of the story to unfold. The suspects are known but the person behind the deadly, brutal attacks is not an obvious find.
The Ryland clan has won my heart over with each installment of the series, and Drury wasn't an exception either. The 'serve your country, love your family, protect the innocent' attitude with their sense of honesty, honor, and integrity are admirable and stand out in every story.
Caitlyn Denson had made some bad choices in life and love, but she owned up to them, didn't hide behind excuses, and told honestly what was behind her reasoning at the time. She asks for help when things get out of her control and then she listens and does as she is told by the law enforcement that is there to protect her, yet stands up and acts smartly when it is needed, making her the perfect heroine of the story.
The connection between Caitlyn and Drury was complicated. The hurt from the past was present and still aching, but they didn't dwell on it or in the drama from the past. I got a good laugh with the clumsy matchmaking from the Ryland men, their forgiving hearts, and minds just one more thing to love about them even more.
Fiery, combustible action, suspense that keeps the reader's mind engaged, a family that will always stand up for each other, and blazing hot attraction that turns into a lasting romance with babies and cowboys and swoon-worthy moments that makes you smile after biting your nails off with the deadly danger the characters are in - Delores Fossen knows how to keep the readers entertained and hooked on the stories, wanting more at each 'the end'.
