I really enjoyed this book. It started out intense, and kept my interest until the last page. Katherine's whole world had changed in a blink of an eye. She lost her sister, and became the sole caregiver to her 4 year old nephew Noah. Her nephew had never gone to a pumpkin patch before. It was the perfect way to spend the day. One moment she was taking his picture while he was climbing on a huge pumpkin, the next moment she, and her Noah were being kidnapped.
The kidnappers left Katherine when she got tangled in barbwire, and took her nephew from her. Katherine begged, and pleaded, and screamed for them to let Noah go. She screamed that he needed his his medine. Noah was ashmatic, and without his medicine he could die if he had an attack, and didn't have his inhailer.
Caleb found Katherine on his ranch in a bloody, tangled mess. Katherine didn't know if Caleb was a good guy or not. She may be stuck in wire, and bleeding, but she was going to defend herself. I love her spirit. She found a stick to use in case she needed it.
There was an instant attraction between Katherine and Caleb. I loved the way the authour allowed time for the friendship, and romance to grow throughout the story. Katherine and Calab worked together to find out who was after Katherine, and why. The action, suspense, and romance was excellent! I would recommend this book, if you like action books with a touch of romance.
I'm going to give you a few sample of the book...
Sample from chapter 4 - She was becoming accustomed to being this close to him. It spread warmth through her, and she felt a pull towrd him stronger than the bond between necleons in an atom. His quiet strength made her feel safe.
Sample from chapter 5 - A shower of bulets descended around them at the sme time Katherine opened her mouth to warn them. Before she could think or move, she felt the impact against her chest.
Sample from chapter 6 - "It'd take one big secret to bring on what we faced today." "Or one powerful man." "Your sister made a big enemy out of someone important. The question is who has this much influence? This Kane guy?" "I have no idea. It'd have to be someone who has the ablitly to make permanent accidents happen. Send men at a moment's notice to erase people."
