In Maverick County, he was the law
When Caitlyn Barnes unexpectedly shows up at his ranch, Texas marshal Harlan McKinney has no idea his ex-lover is trailing a heaping pile of danger. The death threats against the investigative journalist are just the tip of the iceberg. Soon Caitlyn and Harlan are on the run out of Maverick County.
Enmeshed in a web of escalating violence, they know their only hope of surviving is to trust each other. But Harlan doesn’t know if he can trust himself—and the feelings Caitlyn is awakening. With the noose tightening, tracked by a killer who’s always one step ahead, Harlan is blindsided by an explosive secret from the past—and a passion that’s even more dangerous…
Who wants Rachel Davenport dead?
Seth Hammond won’t stop until he gets answers. Tapped by the FBI to find out who’s targeting the heiress gives the former Tennessee bad boy the chance to atone for his past sins. But it’s his future he’s worried about when Seth finds himself falling for Rachel… who’s in graver danger than anyone in their small mountain town of Bitterwood realizes.
Ever since she was named CEO of her family business, strange things have been happening—terrifying incidents that could be tied to Rachel’s violence-shadowed past. Seth’s the only one who doesn’t think she’s losing her mind. Her intense, rough-around-the-edges protector has blindsided her with his passion. But Rachel also believes in Seth—believes he’s a good man looking for redemption… and possibly love?
