When Deputy Sheriff Royce McCall responds to a break-in at his family's cabin, he doesn't expect the intruder to be beautiful Sophie Conway - in her nightgown! The last time he saw her, she wasn't wearing much else, although the details of their New Year's Eve encounter are sketchy at best. Then she admits that not only has she become a killer's target, but she also lied about carrying Royce's baby in order to escape an arranged marriage. With too many unanswered questions surrounding this woman he barely knows, Royce still vows to protect Sophie when the bullets start flying. But when the memories of their one-night stand become clearer, so does the fact that she may not be lying about being pregnant after all.…

To accomplish great things, we must not only act, but also dream; not only plan, but also believe.
The story itself isn't too bad. Rather juvenile, but then again the person reading the story was very very young. The heroine sounded like she was 13 years old. The hero sounded as if he had a bad case of 3 pack a day smokers voice. His father sounded younger than he did. I wonder if the authors of these books have any say in who narrates them? This narrator with her juvenile sounding voice did a major dis-service to a 3 star story. The story had quite a bit of action, although I figured out early on who was trying to kill her, so it was easy to predicate the ending.
Listen to the narrator before purchasing. The book is good for gardening, housework or that morning walk.
Proud Canadian who loves Jesus, Dogs, Country Music, Lilacs, Gregory Peck movies and audio-books with a HEA.
Too many gun fights, not enough intrigue. Once again there were characters insisting on face to face meetings.
Royce is an awful lawman. He didn't arrest the fiance for assault and he didn't arrest the half- brother for drugging him or Sophie.
I couldn't like Sophie because she was too much of a push over. Sophie was too easily manipulated by the men in her life. He mother made a will specifically blocking access of her money to her father and half-brother and she tried to break the will?! She doesn't press charges against her fiance and half-brother after what they did!?!?
I did not care for this narrator. While her female voices were fine, her male voices were not well done.
The Harlequin Intrigue books would be better without ridiculous sex scenes. They always make me roll my eyes. Readers have imaginations, and if the writers chose to omit the sex, we could fill in the blanks ourselves.
If the same thing did not happen over again and again. the same wording and the same sequence of events.are repeated through out the book and in other books I have tried. It is like a form for the book is provided and the writer just changes a few word every few sentences. There are different plots but character reactions are the same and there is always something said or happening that they did not want to hear. The same phrase is used repeatedly through out all the books that I sampled
