Summary:

From #1 New York Times bestselling author Sandra Brown comes a gripping story of family ties and forbidden attraction.

Crawford Hunt wants his daughter back. Following the death of his wife four years ago, Crawford, a Texas Ranger, fell into a downward spiral that left him relegated to deskwork and with his five-year-old daughter Georgia in the custody of her grandparents. But Crawford has cleaned up his act, met all the court imposed requirements, and now the fate of his family lies with Judge Holly Spencer.

Holly, ambitious and confident, temporarily occupies the bench of her recently deceased mentor. With an election upcoming, she must prove herself worthy of making her judgeship permanent. Every decision is high-stakes. Despite Crawford's obvious love for his child and his commitment to being an ideal parent, Holly is wary of his checkered past. Her opinion of him is radically changed when a masked gunman barges into the courtroom during the custody hearing. Crawford reacts instinctually, saving Holly from a bullet.

But his heroism soon takes on the taint of recklessness. The cloud over him grows even darker after he uncovers a horrifying truth about the courtroom gunman and realizes that the unknown person behind the shooting remains at large . . .and a threat.

Catching the real culprit becomes a personal fight for Crawford. But pursuing the killer in his customary diehard fashion will jeopardize his chances of gaining custody of his daughter, and further compromise Judge Holly Spencer, who needs protection not only from an assassin, but from Crawford himself and the forbidden attraction between them.

  • Whitney Heet

    The book was good. Not as eventful as some of her books but a good story. Narration was decent. Sometimes hard to tell the difference in character intrerpretation.

  • Adolfo Santana

    Classic Sandra Brown. A plot full of twists and turns, surprises around every corner. Awsome!

  • Corrie Rowe

    I love Sandra Brown however this book was slow, I found myself skipping parts as it seemed to me the same conversation happened over and over. The narration however had a super sexy voice that had me hooked on the sexy cop character.

    I would call this less of a mystery or even a thriller, but rather an overly sexualized procedural cop drama. Brown does a decent job at describing scenes and characters, but falls short with the plot, which she sometimes shoves down your throat rather heavy handedly. To be more open about it being overly sexualized, she gets rather graphic about the relationship between protagonist (Crawford Hunt) and deuteragonist (Holly Spencer). Crawford is rather stereotypical, he's a no-nonsense, gritty Texan, and Holly doesn't quite fit the bill for someone that is filling the role of a judge. Their relationship feels shallow at some points, with little purpose asides from the glaring sexual tension that exists between them. Lang's narration is spot on, he's got a great voice, and it works well with the type of story. However, to say this book is outstanding is an overstatement. There's plot holes, and Brown's attempts at building any background tend to fall short. It's a poor man's Cormac McCarthy that focuses a little too much on sex and should be focusing more on story.
