A Texas lawman will move heaven and earth to keep his former lover and their infant daughter safe
A shoot-out on the banks of Appaloosa Creek is the last place marshal Chase Crockett expects to find his ex-lover. Former criminal informant April Landis is supposed to be in WITSEC awaiting the birth of their child. But the desperate woman caught in the cross fire isn't pregnant.
Telling Chase he was a father—two months early—wasn't an option with murderous thugs targeting April and their infant daughter. Despite the violence that divides them, her only prayer is to trust the Texas lawman sworn to protect his family. Until desire ambushes them again, leaving April and Chase at the mercy of a past with no promise of a future.
Loved this story, the intensity, danger, constant fear and uncertainty, the threats that kept coming, the tangled web of lies, deceit, and murder.
The story is so well written, it has a seamless flow in it, I was over half way through the story, and I took a deep breath, since I felt I had been holding it, since the moment I started the explosive tale.
What made it even more intriguing, if possible, was the relationship between April and Chase, because nothing was sure or certain about it, except the attraction they had for each other, and the connection they had through their baby girl, and the love they felt for her. But future together, or what that future would hold, and where it would happen, it all was a puzzle to be solved, and gave the story even more spice.
Incredible suspense, that kept me on the edge, literally holding my breath, mixed with family drama, and fragile romance, make this story one of my favorites from Delores Fossen, and that's saying a lot!
