When danger shows up looking for Emmy, Dwight risks everything to keep her safe.
“A captivating romance novel with a sexy cowboy making this perfect for anyone who loves a steamy romantic read.” - Fresh Fiction on My Favorite Cowboy
Despite the cutesy title, this is a seriously good romantic suspense and I found it difficult to put down. The romance is somewhat of a slow burn but I loved that as it made the story more realistic. The tension and suspense were concentrated more towards the end of the book where the inevitable showdown happens between Emmy and the people out to kill her. Emmy made a great heroine. She was scared throughout but incredibly brave and strong at the same time.
Dwight's dog was very cute and intelligent. I loved that he acted as a therapy dog for Emmy.
This was a fast-paced story with a charming romance and a suspense-filled conclusion.
