If she goes it alone, she’s as good as dead.
Jessie Haynes has never relied on anyone. So, when she’s targeted by a ruthless killer, accepting the help of a persistent private investigator is the smart choice, but it isn’t easy. Reeve may be hot as hell, but she has no intention of letting him call all the shots and invade every corner of her privacy. It’s bad enough that unless they can stop the madman who is stalking her every step, she may have no choice but to reveal the painful secret that has kept her alone for years. Jessie knows her sexy new bodyguard will do everything he can to keep her alive, but he may be powerless to stop her past from destroying her future.
He can’t let another woman die.
Determined to make up for a mission gone lethally wrong, former Navy SEAL turned P.I. Reeve Buchanan is hot on the trail of the cunning murderer who got away. He’s got no time to waste catering to the exacting demands of the luscious red-head who’s reluctantly tolerating his protection. Especially when he’s sure she’s not telling him all there is to know. But as he finds himself falling for Jessie, his need for revenge takes a backseat. With the killer closing in, Reeve must figure out a way to gain her trust before she becomes the next victim. Because if he loses her, it will kill him too.
Review: If you are a fan of romantic suspense stories, you will enjoy this debut novel by Maura Troy. It’s action-packed, funny, and like all romantic suspense books, you will love the ending. I found myself chuckling out loud a couple of times while reading it. Romance fans will love the heat between Jessie and Reeve. Looking forward to reading the next in the series!
