Rourke Kincaid is a U.S. Marshal and for him there is the law and then there is his law. If they don’t always agree he goes with the one thing he can trust…his instincts. In the Northwest there has been a strange killing spree going on with a connection only Rourke can see. Now the old rules of justice no longer apply. He has been forced to turn rogue to find the answers. Going undercover to track a mysterious woman suspect he ends up in a quiet, unassuming café located in the wild, isolated mountains of Beartooth.
When he encounters Callie Westfield his mission gets complicated in ways he didn’t expect. She gets to Rourke with her fragile beauty and sexy charm even though she seems very suspicious. Now the gory crimes have begun again. His heart is suddenly at war with his instincts, which leaves him with only two options. He has to turn Callie over to the law or he will have to put everything on the line, both his heart and his badge if he wants to protect her.
This is a great romantic suspense that keeps readers guessing until the very end. With the twists and turns this story takes readers are never sure just what will happen next or where the threats are coming from. While this is part of a series and would be better read as a whole the story can be read as a standalone book. For readers that start with this one they will definitely want to check out the other books in the series just to get more from this author. This is one suspense that is hard to put down though with all that happens in it the story will definitely have readers thinking twice about turning out the lights at night.
I give this one 4-1/2 red roses
