The Rylands of Silver Creek are back and hungry for justice in USA TODAY bestselling author Delores Fossen's latest heart-stopping suspense!
After returning home to investigate a brutal murder, Detective Landon Ryland is shocked to learn the body was discovered in the home of Tessa Sinclair, a woman he once knew intimately.
Seeing Tessa again is like a jolt to his heart. Too bad the beautiful brunette has no idea who she is—or why she's cradling a newborn.
With evidence pointing toward Tessa and the baby being next on the killer's hit list, Landon refuses to leave their safety in anyone else's hands. Or admit that losing them would permanently destroy the future he secretly envisioned.
With explosive action, intense suspense, and ardent attraction this story deliver a breathtaking thrill ride with constant threat and danger, one life or death situation after another, demanding attention and delivering all-out menace.
When a story takes a hold of you and your thoughts so that it comes to your dreams, and causes nightmares, that's some seriously fierce and powerful writing.
This story delivers it on all fronts. The suspense is perilous and deadly with new unexpected twists on every corner. The action is crimson and gory, and not even the members of the family are saved from it. From the beginning, the tension is high and danger imminent. There are multiple culprits, some more obvious than others, yet the main questions of who and why are holding the jitters and mistrust till the end.
The air around Landon and Tessa is crackling, there's so much sexual tension between them, it is palpable. The past misunderstandings, the hurt, and disappointments are quickly cleared out, but the threat to Tessa's life is real and serious, and there's no time to wonder about the feelings when the bullets are flying and explosions hammering the town. Never the less, when the time comes to face the truth about each other, and how much they care, both of them has to step on the plate and to accept the emotions and passion burning in between them.
I love it when finishing a story I feel the adrenaline rush, all breathless, and excited because of the wild ride the tale gave. And that's exactly what this story delivers, with a great flood of energy and surge of vitality the roll-a-coaster ride of deadly encounters and swoon-worthy lovers made me want to roar with delight
