Working together to keep a deputy safe sparks an intense attraction in New York Times bestselling author Linda Castillo’s classic tale of romantic suspense
Just a few minutes of routine work in Chicago – but long enough to shake Erin McNeal’s life. Her partner is hit by a bullet while she shoots one of the perpetrators herself. As a result, her reputation as a cop is ruined, her self-esteem destroyed.
After nine years as one of Chicago’s finest, Erin McNeal, on the recommendation of her uncle, had come to sleepy Logan Falls for a second chance, not to be watched over by a man as infuriatingly overprotective-and disarmingly attractive-as Nick Ryan. She was no damsel in distress, but someone wanted her dead, and Nick knew better than to entrust a guilt-driven daredevil with her own safety. It was his duty to protect her-whether she liked it or not. It seemed the only thing the chief of police and his newest deputy could agree on was the one thing they couldn’t resist-each other. Could the cautious single father and the reckless beauty be cops and lovers?
