The woman fleeing a cold-blooded killer is no stranger to Deputy Colt McKinnon. Fourteen years ago, Elise Nichols was the love of his life. Now she's back in Sweetwater Springs—to be the star witness in an upcoming murder trial that could tear the Texas lawman's family apart.
With her explosive revelations certain to rock the town, Elise didn't expect to be welcomed home with open arms. Certainly not by the cowboy with the badge who once meant everything to her. But after being run off the road and shot at, she has no choice but to trust him. Even more dangerous is the desire that's reigniting, making Elise yearn for something she may not live to see.
Wild West meets today's Texas in gun blazing thrill ride, mixed with dysfunctional family, love from the past, and murder trial witness in danger of her life.
Colt and Elise have a history, they grew up in the small town Texas, and they had loved each other 14 years ago, before she left town. Now Elise is back, and bringing more trouble with her than anyone expected. They still feel the attraction, it is instantly fumed up again, and the pull for each other is strong. But the fact that Elise is a witness in a murder trial, where either Colt's mother or father most likely will be convicted of murder, brings tension into the budding relationship. Colt's family is warmly accepting her back, even though Elise only expected trouble from that front. I liked how openhearted they were towards her.
Everything between Colt and Elise happens really fast, it's like 14 years without contact never happened. The passion runs hot, and they aren't able to keep their hands off each other, even though danger seems to only a step away from them, where ever they go.
The action is full blast guns blazing, running non-stop, to stay alive. Every corner seems to bring more people who are after Elise, who are willing to risk anything to get her, dead or alive, making it a true wild west thrill ride.
Intriguing tale, indeed, with fast action and romance, and the story seems to go on into the next installment of the series
