If they ever find you, run.
Those are the words Jenna Stark has lived by for three years. But now the stakes are much higher. Her child is in danger and only one man can keep them alive. The man who forced her into a life on the run: her husband.
Cade Stark curses the day he was recruited for a covert ops organization - and the perilous assignment that tore the Navy SEAL from his new wife's side. Cade's only mission now is to protect Jenna and their young son. On the run from a vengeance-seeking arms dealer, desire reignites, hot and unstoppable. That's when Cade realizes how much he'll risk to win back Jenna's trust. And how far he'll go to offer his son a future.
It sounded like a good story, and the reviews were relatively positive. So I bought it. But I groaned when the introduction included the word, Harlequin. I like some love interest/romance in books I read but, first and foremost, I want a good story line. I have found, when reading books with a Harlequin connection, that I am frequently (although not always) reading a series of love/sex scenes, held together, very loosely, by a story line that seems to be secondary. My preference is the opposite order. But I bought it, and I wasn't going to waste the money. At least, I'd give it a try.
The story began immediately ... before character introduction. The reader/listener is dropped right into the action. By the time the first shot rang out, I was hooked.
Characterization was good ... they came off the page, with a three dimensional quality. And I was right there with them.
Chelsea Harrison is excellent with presenting all the characters, even the three year old. There is no trouble knowing who is speaking. At no time did I question the interpretation of any of the characters.
The entire book takes place in a fairly short time period. Background information is supplied, as needed, by characters reflecting backward.
It isn't a long read/listen, and it is an easy one. Good light reading/listening while relaxing. This is a little gem.
