All Texas Ranger Jack MacKinnon has to do is keep Megan Harper alive while they hunt down whoever’s framing her for a fatal shooting. But the gorgeous intelligence analyst is too independent for her own good—and Jack’s peace of mind.
With a false murder rap and hit men gunning for her, Megan has no choice but to trust the cowboy-handsome lawman. She isn’t used to playing it safe.
Yet how can she let Jack put his career and life on the line?
And how can they ignore the desire ratcheting up the stakes, tempting them to take one last risk before a killer erases their future?
A fast-paced, explosive, lively story with humorous banter and intriguing characters who have chemistry in spades.
Jack MacKinnon, aka Little Jack, the Texas Ranger and a son of a newly elected senator, was supposed to just do a favor for his friend and partner - rescue a damsel in distress. But things with Jack's partner apparently never go as they are supposed to go, and things escalate quickly, dangerously, and potentially deadly.
Megan Harper has no idea what is going on. Is she being rescued or kidnapped, why do people want to attack her, why is deadly force being used, what, who, why --
And neither does the reader. This is the niche of the story, the reader gets the same information in real time as Megan and Jack. There are continues attacks, twist in the plot, and the reasons for them, or who is behind them, or why is Megan involved stays a mystery most of the story. This creates some chaotic confusion for Megan and Jack, as the clues are slow to come in and Jack's partner is missing in action.
The chemistry between Jack and Megan was sizzling. The interactions between them were life-like, flirtatious teasing and games, as they are on a run for their lives, trying to survive.
This new suspense-filled mini-series starts with a hair-raising story that at times felt like all over the map until the strings are finally pulled together, answers are found, and culprits are named, reasons for attacks given. While the case was satisfactorily solved, lots of curiosity and fascination towards the still open-ended questions were left in my mind, mainly about the secondary characters and how do they play into the whole picture.
I believe this is going to be one riveting series of fiery suspense and enthralling romance with alluring characters. An entertaining and captivating start, that's for sure!
