Somewhere to review books I'm reading without giving away any spoilers!
Title: Settling an Old Score
Series: Longview Ridge Ranch #3
Author: Delores Fossen
Publisher: Harlequin – Romance (U.S. & Canada), Harlequin Intrigue
This is an action packed read from the very start! Eli Slater is a Texas Ranger and when he hears footsteps outside his home the last thing he anticipated was to discover a baby there! What makes it even more dramatic is when his gun totting high school ex, Ashlyn Darrow, turns up threatening to shoot him for kidnapping her adopted daughter. The men who kidnapped the child had told her it was on his orders but the two soon realise this was a set up – they’d hoped she would kill him. Their past attraction is still there but there’s been so much drama to drive them apart, can Eli convince her to let him keep her and Cora safe? As he investigates who kidnapped Cora this turns into a truly intriguing read with three main potential perpetrators behind it all but just who is trying to get Eli killed and Ashlyn out of the way? There’ll be lots of gunfire, plenty of surprises and dangerous encounters before this couple can have any chance at a second chance romance and then it can only happen if they both survive…..
This story is an edge of your seat suspense with so many twists and turns to keep you guessing! I thoroughly enjoyed reading it and didn’t want to put it down until all was well again for the main characters. It is a story with the family of law men determined to keep Ashlyn and her daughter safe as well as bringing the criminals to justice. I have no hesitation in highly recommending it to anyone who enjoys a huge helping of mystery and intrigue served with their romance.
I requested and was gifted a copy of this book and this is my honest review after choosing to read it.
