Ranger Proud, Ranger Strong...
Texas Rangers swear to uphold the law to the letter. But Captain Ross Sinclair isn't about to play by the rules to destroy a major human trafficking cartel—especially now that the only chance to break this case just strode into his life with attitude as long as her gorgeous legs. Heiress Emm Rothschild is taking names and raising hell as she searches for her abducted sister and niece. And the evidence this wild-child turns up sets off a lethal chain of events—challenging Ross to keep her reckless determination and seductive daring up close and dangerously personal.
Now a blindsiding betrayal has Emm heading straight into harm's way. And Ross will have to put his badge and career on the line to get justice—and prove to the woman he loves that a Ranger's word is a forever bond
From the beginning of the story, the desperation and sorrow Emm is feeling, because of the disappearance of her sister and niece, is palpable, and heartbreaking. The story goes into a great, graphic, and at times rough details about human trafficking, and I admit, I had a tough time reading some of the raw details, even though I have read many books on the topic before. This story brings the images and information so clear and vivid in the mind of the reader, that I want you to be aware of that beforehand.
Emm is strong, fierce, and capable woman, I love her! She is not afraid to face whomever, and go after what she wants, when it comes to her loved ones missing.
Both Emm and Ross are mature in age and mind, another thing I loved in this story. Their dislike/attraction at the first sight was fun, and how they got to know each other, and admire each other, until they acted on the attraction, was admirable.
Ross was a true professional, solid, caring, honest man. So easy to like and respect. The way he stood up for Emm against his family, made me want to applaud.
The story has a constant, expectant feeling and tune, the momentum building up, both in suspense and in the romance. It felt a bit dragging at times, moving on too slow in my mind, until the wait is over, and the full blow war explodes all around the characters. Very interesting, vivid, and vicious story
