This is a gripping romantic suspense that had me hooked from the start. It is packed with intrigue, danger and heat – a real page turner with a brilliant blend of action, danger, steam and romance. It starts with a hook up, moves on to a kidnapping and then a desperate attempt to bring a criminal to justice whilst also endeavouring to rescue children.

Although this is part of a series, I believe it still works well as a standalone. However, I thoroughly enjoyed reading the first book in the series – Witness in the Dark – and it was great to reconnect with some of the characters from that story in this one. Again this story has well developed characters, their motivations and background are revealed as the story progresses. It is another fast paced adventure with plenty of twists, turns and misdirection to keep the reading engrossed and guessing. There’s a definite sense of family and support even in the most trying of situations. I thoroughly enjoyed reading it and have no hesitation in highly recommending it to anyone who enjoys steamy, romantic suspense.

I requested and was given a copy of this book, via NetGalley. This is my honest review of the book after choosing to read it.


Lena Scott is in a world of hurt. She’s being forced to pay off her ex’s debts to people who’d rather kill her than look at her…and are making demands she’s desperate to avoid. But kidnapping and murder? Hell, no. When the threats turn deadly, Lena refuses to be a pawn any longer.

Five years ago, U.S. Marshal Dane Ryan left his old life and went into witness protection alone to keep his family safe. Working for Task Force Phoenix under a new identity, it’s his job to protect others from those who’d harm them.

When the beautiful and mysterious Lena lures him into danger, he suddenly doesn’t know who to trust. She has her own agenda, and they both have big secrets, but for either to survive, they’ll need to work together to defeat their mutual enemy. Falling in love will only mean more to lose…
