Justice comes easy for these two. But forgiveness? That's another matter altogether.
Investigative reporter Rae Burke will do anything to find her missing sister-in-law, even if it means facing Liam McKade, a man who almost lost his life saving hers. A former DEA agent, Liam thought he could find peace at his Wyoming ranch, but he doesn't feel at home anywhere anymore. When the reporter who blew his cover on an important investigation inserts herself back into his life, he's less than thrilled. But Rae's keen investigative skills have led her down the right path--and directly into the dragon's mouth--leaving Liam no choice but to protect her.
As the danger increases, the past they both tried to flee catches up to them, along with the feelings they once had for each other . . .
Sometimes you think you know someone, only to find out that you really don’t. Or do you? This is what happens to Rae Burke’s brother when his wife Zoey disappears without a trace. She was not the type to just leave her husband and daughter. However, as Rae begins investigating her sister-in-law’s disappearance really big secrets begin to surface.
Rae agrees to help her brother and she once again finds herself working with an old fling, Liam who is also the man who saved her life once before. From the time that they first meet again, there was certainly an undercurrent of tension as they did not leave on good terms. Liam does not want anything more to do with Rae, but when it comes to her, he just can’t help his overprotective side.
Things really begin to heat up as someone has set their sites on Rae. And Rae is already working in the dark trying to piece together Zoey’s life and what may have happened to her. All the while I am hoping Zoey gets back to her little girl and husband. The frustration the characters were feeling about this missing person was seeping through the pages.
This was a pretty intense read from the opening sentences of the prologue. I love a good prologue to pull me in and this one stayed with me partly due to what was happening in it, and that the story starts two days earlier. I also wondered who it was about. It was very mysterious and bone-chilling. This was a good suspense novel with a second chance thrown in that happens in the winter. Great for a really hot 90-degree day.
I was provided a copy of this novel from the publisher. I was not required to post a positive review and all views and opinions are my own.
