Publisher's Summary

Doctor Ruth Burnette has everything she has ever dreamed possible: the perfect job, a twin sister who is her best friend, and a fiancé who is retiring from professional boxing as the middleweight champion of the world.

Then came that fateful night when she witnessed a mafia execution. When her sister is murdered she knows she'll battle to the last round and never, ever throw in the towel. Now she's down for the count, in witness protection, anxious, alone except for the faithful company of her German shepherd at her side.

As the time draws near to when she has to leave her safe little corner she stays on her toes. She has to testify against one of the darkest criminals in New York. She shores up the courage to face the accused from the witness stand. Unexpectedly, he's not the one who worries her. She wonders what coming face-to-face with his son, Victor Kovalev, her former fiancé, will bring.

Will Ruth have a fighting chance against the Kovalev family, or will Victor keep her pinned On the Ropes?

A perfect read

This wonderful book kept me from falling asleep on a long drive -- normally I get so sleepy, but I was on the edge of my seat! What I loved especially besides that it kept my attention so well was 1. the mystery AND romance, but not cheesy. 2. The faith aspect, and that that part was written in a believable, realistic way, and 3. It was intense and sad in parts but not so much that it was emotionally painful to read, life is too short to choose books like that --when I want a good fictional book, I don't want my heart to be put through the ringer, and I only want happy endings. I love that I know I can trust Hallee not to have a bad/disappointing ending after I invest time in a book.
