Aimee can identify a killer. Dane can keep her safe. But is he willing to face his past to do it?
When Aimee Jansenn stumbles upon a drug deal gone bad she comes face to face with a killer. As the only witness to a crime, she falls into a deadly situation and is in need of police protection.
Dane Scott has sworn off women. Until a fireball named Aimee enters his world. Telling himself they’re just friends, he vows to protect her. Can his heart follow suit or will she change his mind about love for good?
Artist and photographer Aimee Jansenn and detective Dane Scott first meet when Aimee’s sister marries Dane’s best friend. They are immediately attracted to one another, but past mistakes keep them at arm’s length. When a night on the town with her roommate turns into a nightmare and Aimee is the sole witness to a drug-related murder, Dane knows he’ll do whatever it takes to keep her safe. But making sure his heart stays guarded against the fiery redhead is a whole other situation. Can he keep her safe from the murderer who is after her? And will Aimee be able to change his mind about love?
Oh my. This book was everything a romance novel should be. Filled with those “aw” cute moments that reminded me of a Hallmark movie and enough suspense to keep your heart pounding, I enjoyed every second. I hardly let go of the book once I got into it! Aimee was a lively heroine filled with spirit and just plain adorable. She was different than the normal romance heroine and I found myself relating to her A LOT, which is always a big plus in my book. And Dane. Oh, Dane. *happy sigh* You know when you just fall in love with a fictional character so much that you wish he was real? Yes, well that was Dane. A knight in shining armor, compassionate and complex and romantic. He was the perfect hero of the story! And while there was a sort of “insta-love” vibe (we don’t actually read the first “meeting”, the story begins a little later) it wasn’t enough to annoy or anything. I was actually really happy that we got more scenes of them together together, instead of just the last chapter or so like usual. Overall this was such a great inspirational romance novel!
Seriously, if you like faith-based romance with lots of sizzle and a dash of intrigue this is for you! Likeable characters (including cowboys! *wink*) made for good, solid fun. Would definitely recommend and I can’t wait to read the next (and first book) in this series!
*I received this book free from the author in exchange for my honest review.
