The Coltons of Oklahoma series continues…and for one Colton doctor, the prognosis is deadly…
After a hit-and-run, all the frightened victim can remember is the handsome Dr. Eric Colton, who rescued her.
She has no identity and no memory, other than the flash of a gunshot and a man's name. But she knows she's in grave danger.
Eric can't explain his irresistible attraction to the mystery woman who, in hours, transforms him from workaholic surgeon to vigilant bodyguard.
He can't let her out of his arms, not when danger stalks her.
But why? What lies hidden in her mind?
Eric doesn't know what she's forgotten, but he knows people will kill to ensure she never remembers…and it's up to him to stop them.
Dr Eric Colton is acting out of character: he sees a Mystery Woman been hit by a car, intentionally, and his life is changed forever. The attraction between MW (Mystery Woman) and Eric is so strong, it is like a magnet pulling them together. Eric opens up his heart, his wallet, and his home to take care of her, without knowing anything about her or her past, only that someone is repeatedly trying to kill her. For Eric to risk everything, to protect and safeguard MW, shows how deeply he is attracted to her.
I enjoyed the Colton family, I read the first book in the series, and they are a great bunch of people, the siblings are fun, the family dynamics a bit dysfunctional, and there's always a lot of drama around them. It was nice to catch up with the family again.
There's a great insight into Eric, his personality, and why he has always felt an outsider with his own family, the resentment he feels for his parents, and how he built his own life and future despite the lack of support from his family.
Even with amnesia, MW's true personality comes forward. Her kindness, helpfulness, thoughtfulness, and her love for cooking and baking. Together MW and Eric makes a great team, they seem to compliment each other in many ways, and the chemistry between them is unique, passionate, and appealing.
When the details of MW's past start to reveal, the intensity and danger increase in the story. Every time there's a moment of peace, something else happens, a new twist into the plot, that kept the story going and interesting. After all the built up, the solution to all the action and suspense was a little flat, if not predictable.
Overall a fascinating, enjoyable, and at times a thrilling story. You really can't miss the target, when mixing medical drama with a cowboy and romantic suspense together!
