First in a brand-new series from #1 New York Times bestselling author Lora Leigh and Veronica Chadwick about one man’s pursuit of justice—and unbridled desire. 

For as long as Samantha can remember, Hunter—a man as strong as steel, with a heart of gold—has been her hero. It came as no surprise to Samantha when she found out that the ranch-hardened cowboy who always protected her from bullies went on to become the town’s sheriff. What does surprise her is how incredibly hot he still is. And how much she still wants him…


And, lo and behold, Hunter still has feelings for Samantha. The long-smoldering heat of their innocent flirtation has grown into a full-raging fire. But when tragedy strikes, and their small-town community is shattered, Hunter vows to do everything he can to keep his childhood sweetheart safe. But can Samantha trust that Hunter has her best interests at heart…and that, after all these years, his love is true?

Nikki’s Review:

Two of my favourite things were all wrapped up in this book...suspense, and sexy as hell cowboys! I was a bit weary going into this one at first. Lora Leigh is one of my all time favourite authors, and this book is co authored with Veronica Chadwick. She’s a new to me author. My concern was that the “voice” I love when reading a Lora Leigh book would be lost,  or just different. Well, I was wrong. I could clearly “hear” Lora, and also something new and exciting. I’m definitely going to be checking out what other books Ms. Chadwick has available!

This book was full of action and swoon worthy sexy times! Hunter is a hot AF sheriff/cowboy, and he’s all about the pesky little girl who use to bug him when they were going up. Samantha isn’t a child anymore, and the sheriff has certainly noticed, and she’s a cop too. These two have ridiculously smokin’ hot chemistry! I loved when they were on the page sparring with each other. The banter was amazing. 

The plot was intricately woven and kept me on my toes. I found myself trying to figure out the connection between certain people and things. It’s not because it was confusing, because it wasn’t, it’s because the authors hid the clues well. I had to really pay attention. I like a book that engages me. 

One of the secondary characters, Jacob, had me drooling. There’s a scene that Hunter stumbles upon; Jacob and a mystery lady doing something delicious. That scene had me itching for more from the reclusive Jacob. 

This book was just plain ol’ fun! And did I mention that it was sexy?! I’m very excited for the next installment in this series!
