Publisher's Summary

Sometimes a knight in shining armor wears a Stetson

Seven years ago, as a young cop, Darius Franklin saved a vulnerable woman from a violent situation. They shared one night of pure passion before she walked away. Now Darius is a wealthy rancher and security contractor working at a women's shelter. And he's shocked to meet the new social worker: Summer Martindale, a beautiful damsel no longer in distress.

Darius has never been able to forget that night - or forgive Summer for the pain she caused him when she left. And he's suspicious of why she's suddenly in his part of Texas. But neither can deny the desire still crackling between them. When Summer's life is once again threatened, Darius knows he can protect her only if he stays very close to her....

Another Great Brenda Jackson storu

What did you like best about this story?

I love the fact friends can sometimes make the best lovers.

What didn’t you like about Sean Crisden’s performance?

His male voices were fine and had a good tone. While his females voice were awful and almost sounded like his voice shook at some parts of the book. It almost caused me to put the book aside and not complete it.

Worth the read

Although I loved the story, I struggled with the female parts of the story. The narration left a little to be desired.

It was okay

I personally feel like it was a lot of things left out. It goes to show you we believe other people before we talk to each other.

sooner or later the truth comes to light...

not a deeply complex story, but topical and interesting; lesson to remember about trust and faith always worth hearing.
Narrator was terrible, truly detracted from book, yet proof of strong story that made me endure his delivery

Good Story

MS Brenda..Love your WESTMORELAND series. Bane has been my favorite so far. But this one was good too. As well as the ones about Zane and Bailey.
I like the way you write in a strong secondary storyline along with the hot romance.

I happen to like mystery, detective, ACTION stories, so I am looking forward to more stories from you about the original/core Westmoreland Clan that involves those elements along with the love story.
Enjoyed the read!!!!
Thank you for what you do.

One Night with the Wealthy Rancher

This was a real eye opener, and a major overall preformance and story.
I tried to give it a 5 star but the more I tried the more it stayed at 4 star rating! I hope this a accident, and nothing more!

Great story but the ending felt rush

As usually Brenda Jackson wrote another great novel. It contains suspense and twist turns. But if that like by the end she was rushed to meet a deadline and had to stop the book immediately. There was still some things that were mentioned a book they want unanswered. And it seemed like it was developed to have a different ending if it had just a few more chapters to go.
