Bad boy Mick Donovan has dedicated his life to avenging his brother’s death, even aligning himself with an FBI Task Force to achieve his ends. Which leads him to the mess he’s in now–undercover as the husband of the woman he’s been fantasizing about, despite knowing how off-limits she is, to protect an innocent child.
After an ambush, Destiny Harper is on the run and out of places to hide from a ruthless drug lord hellbent on claiming his son. Charged with protecting the boy, Dez lands in the mountains on a collision course with Mick, a blizzard, and a past she’d rather forget. But even as the close quarters ignites the passion between her and the sexy biker, she knows there’s no future with him. Mick will sacrifice everything for revenge—even her.
Sometimes revenge can colour your life, blinkering you to possibilities and refuting your expectations. For Mick Donovan, seeking revenge is his life’s focus. He won’t join law enforcement agencies to achieve his goal but will work with them. His current undercover partner is Destiny Harper, and they’re working with an FBI Task Force to bring down a notorious drug lord, the person Mick has been after for years….. When Destiny is endangered in an ambush, she and Mick will work together to protect the child the drug lord is after, even if it involves pretending to be a family . . . . . Even if it means returning to the hometown Destiny left years ago, facing her past and discovering a new possible future – if only they can survive the present!
This is another superb read by this highly talented romantic suspense author. Cindy Skaggs brings her characters and scenarios to life in the readers’ imagination. It is a fast paced, enthralling page turner to read, with many mysteries to be revealed en route. It involves family, loyalties, blizzards, secrets, betrayal and high ranking double dealing by those you should be able to rely on. There’s danger, gangsters, bullies and dealers as well as support, family, love and romance. I’d love to see this as an action packed film!
I was gifted a copy of this and chose to read and review it. This is my honest opinion after reading this, IMHO, superb novel. I will continue to look out for my by this author in future as I’ve thoroughly enjoyed this and previous books I’ve read by her. If you enjoy brilliant romantic suspense, you should definitely try this book!
Most of those stories were even true. She has ten siblings, some of whom are older than her mother, has nieces and nephews older than her, and once went to a horse auction with John Wayne. Well, with him in the sense that he was there, and she was also… there. She was the munchkin in line for his autograph with tangled hair and bruised knees that liked to dance on her daddy’s dusty cowboy boots and listen to his tall tales.
With her love of storytelling and heroes, it’s no wonder she turned to books and stories after her father died. She skipped most of the eighth grade to bury herself in books while hidden in her closet, because she was still looking for the perfect story and the last honest man. Her search took her around the world with the Air Force as well as around the world with her education. She’s visited more countries than she can remember, nearly every state in the U.S., and has more degrees than the Tin Man.
As a single mom, she’s still gambling, betting on herself for the first time in her life, turning her lifelong love of storytelling into the one thing she can’t live without: writing. She writes 10,000 words a week in cafes and coffee shops, and some of those 10,000 words are even worth reading. She has an MA in Creative Writing, is working towards her Master of Fine Arts, and has three jobs, two kids, a Pushcart Nomination, more pets than she can possibly handle, and more works in progress than the crew filling potholes after a long Colorado winter.
