Publisher's Summary

Kaitlyn O'Reilly, an RN, believed that she'd found love with the charming and well-liked surgeon she'd met at work. Landon Goldburg was kind and attentive, and she thought that they had so much in common. Now that they're engaged, the good doctor has quickly become the man of her nightmares. As he grows more controlling and violent, Kaitlyn wants her freedom.

Jock Kinncaid can't stop thinking about the quietly beautiful - and engaged - redhead he met at a fund-raising gala months ago. He knows that a spitfire lurks beneath the surface of this woman who's invaded his dreams, and he realizes that she's exactly what's been missing from his otherwise ideal life. When a chance meeting throws the two of them together again, Jock swears that he won't let her get away this time. But even as Jock vows to protect the woman he loves, the deranged doctor is bent on destroying them both, even if it means killing the only thing he loves.

Sweet romance, enjoyable suspense

Enjoy the narration on the audio. The narrator did a good job; she fit the tone of the story well. Liked the mystery element and the bit of tenseness it added to the overall story.

This is a prequel to this series, but does have some scenes at the end with the characters from the other books. So, it’s mostly told in the past, but if you’ve read the other books, you get a glimpse into the lives of the main characters from the other books. It’s brief and even though I haven’t read any of the other books, I enjoyed it.

This book features the story for the parents of the Kinncaid siblings featured in the other books. Kaitlyn is a nurse engaged to a man that starts to show his true colors. Kaitlyn meets Jock at a party and the 2 have an instant connection. Kaitlyn is in danger and Jock offers help. The two quickly began to heat things up and fall for each other.

The romance is really sweet with some hot times! The chemistry between Jock and Kaitlyn is really great. I do wish some more time was spent on the development of their relationship, but still enjoyed what was there. Liked both characters. Kaitlyn didn’t really make the best decisions, but I still liked her. She had some sass. Loved how much Jock was there for her. The opening scene was great! Loved that suspense and waiting to see when everything would boil over.

Really looking forward to reading/listening to the rest of the series! Sounds like it’ll have some entertaining suspense!

New fan!

This was my first book by this author but she is a new favorite. This story had everything: romance, intrigue, humor all in such a way I couldn't stop listening. I have also discovered a new favorite narrator. She was fantastic. Already downloaded the next book.
