A Texas Ranger with everything to lose…
Going undercover to keep the former wife of a Texas crime boss alive is risky business for Texas Ranger Bryce Johnson. Kylie Scott may have evidence that could put her ex-husband's family away forever. If she lives long enough to testify.
For five years, Kylie managed to stay off the mob's radar. With her cover blown, the former model is forced to flee the close-knit community that had embraced her. On the run again—this time with the seductive lawman who's risking his career to protect her—Kylie battles her powerful desire for Bryce. If they survive, do they stand a snowball's chance at a future together?
Mafia families, teen bride, death and destruction - the prologue gets the story into a fast and fiery start, with gun blazing and blood on the street. The tone, the speed, and the action never cease. It is constant, fatal, and riveting.
Bryce, with his sun burned back, eye glasses, and excitement of the first undercover mission, is a complete hunk. His kindness, considerate, gentlemanly, personality made me sigh. He is a person to be admired, his easygoing nature, his loyalty, the way he got along with everyone, just made him even more likable.
Kylie had finally found home. That is all her heart had wanted, and now that it is hers, her past was back in the present, and threaten to take it all away. My heart went out for her, she didn't ask for pity or sympathy, she was a true survivor, not a victim, but you still wanted to take care of her, and make the world a little bit easier for her to live in.
Their gravitation towards each other, was so natural. Like they had always known each other, being there for each other, and supported each other. There's so many moments in the story, between Kylie and Bryce, that their allure, adoration for each other is obvious, palpable, and so tender.
The absolutely adorable couple, who obviously were meant to be together, are in the middle of a nasty mafia family dispute. The guns are blazing, the danger is ceaseless. Death and torture are nothing to those after them, and only a miracle, or a ranger, can save them from the situation they are in. Raging tale, filled with action, cutthroat moments, and fiery battles.
