That is until a hard-bodied US marshal threatens to unearth secrets she's spent years protecting. But giving in to the sparks flying between them can only lead to one thing: disaster.

What were you thinking? The voice of the Main Character is nasally & whinny. I am just into the first few chapters, and I cringe everything the main character starts to talk. I like her inner voice. I don't know if I'll be able to finish this book. YUCK!
I have to give the author kudos for being one among very very few writers to portray women who are confident and unapologetic in regard to their sexuality. You won't find any of the cringe worthy "oh god I slept with him I'm such a slut" or "what will he think of me if sometimes I wanna just f**k rather than make love" in this book. If you're like me and you've returned a million books precisely because they portray women as passive and frail creatures who need to be talked into sex or "taught" by men that's it's ok to be sexual, then you'll really enjoy the sex-positive female characters in this book.
That said, the plots were good but I enjoy slightly more complicated plot lines so this isn't the most exciting book I've ever listened to. The only other problem is that the narration wasn't as good as it could be. It was ok in general, but my main problem with it was the female character's voice in the first book. It was pretty annoying and awful, which Is too bad. That said, I was able to get over it after a while, which isn't always the case in other books I've listened to.
Had to return audiobook after a couple chapters because the narrator was so awful! Will have to read book to find out if story is good. Narrator needs to find a new career.
