Ani King left her entire life behind when the Russian mafia brutally murdered her family. The Witness Security Program has kept her safe for two years, but with one simple phone call her cover is destroyed—and there is only one man left who can save her.
Protecting the brave, beautiful Ani became more than just a job a long time ago for Deputy Marshal Daniel Parker. And now, just days before the trial where she’s slated to give a damning testimony, the criminals who want her dead are on her trail. To keep Ani safe, Daniel has to keep her close—and her enemies closer. Because soon there’s nowhere for Ani to hide…but in his arms.
In My Own Words:
After Ani King's family is brutally murdered by the Russian mob, she goes in to hiding with the help of the Witness Protection Service. Her plan, to testify and put the murdering bastard behind bars for the rest of his life. What she doesn't count on is that her heart is just a little to big. And with one phone call to help a little boy in need, her cover is blown.
Daniel Parker has been Ani's Marshall for over a year and their weekly calls has settled her in his heart. On this Friday, his call is answered and he learns that Ani has gone against protocol and has contacted someone from her past. No matter the reason, she is now in grave danger. A rush against the clock has him speeding through Arizona to get to her before the mafia does. Once he has her safely with him, now the job is to get her safely to court to testify.
In an effort for full disclosure, I have been in a reading slump lately. Not much has kept my attention, and there have been several books I have started and not finished. Luckily, THIS isn't one of those books. I loved this one from cover to cover. There is nonstop action and hotness between Ani and Daniel. Up against all odds, she had backbone and gumption and steel determination. Daniel tried, he really tried to see her as only his charge, but all those weekly phone calls, really cemented her in his life and finally gave up being her Marshall and became her protector, lover and best friend all rolled up in one nice hot package. There is one big secret that threatens their relationship, it was a secret you can easily figure out early on in the book, but I don't think knowing it took away from the story at all. This wasn't your normal who-done-it book, as you know who did it, you are just waiting to see if they can do it to her. An all in all great romantic suspense read.
