When love is on the line… Texas Lawman, Cain Whitfield, discovers the wary brunette he’s had his eye on is a former mob enforcer’s girlfriend when her cabin goes up in flames and her boyfriend tries to run them both off the road. Now, he’s got to keep her alive and under wraps long enough to arrest him – then he can wipe his hands of her. Even though she knows they’re all wrong for each other, Carina Black can’t help her attraction for the proud lawman. The longer they’re together, the hotter their passion burns…
What happens when a small town deputy meets a frightened, shy and beautiful girl on the run? You get a tale of protection and intrigue. Cain has been hurt by a woman who played the part of helpless and as such he has become very skeptical of women. Particularly those who look like they need help.
Carina is scared, running from her boyfriend who is the son of a mobster. He doesn’t like to lose and she fled. Not only did she run but she stole money from him to accomplish it.
When Cain first sees her she is in ill fitting clothes in the office of the Prickly Pear Motel. The second time they meet up is when the cabin she has rented goes up in flames. Definitely arson, but is she involved? A wild car ride avoiding a maniacal boyfriend as Cade takes Carina to town has him wondering even more about this shy young woman.
Carina needs protection and Cain finds himself assigned to do just that. Here’s a favorite scene as they prepare to head to Cade’s home.
Cain stepped to her side. “He might be watching for her to leave the station.”
The sheriff pursed his lips. “Still got those ugly clothes you arrived in?”
Narrowing her gaze, Carina frowned. “Wouldn’t you feel like crap if they were really mine?”
The sheriff arched a brow.
Carina huffed. “I put them in the trash can. “Well, go get ’em.” The sheriff looked beyond Carina and the deputy. “Hey, Rita.”
“Ooh-wee! Do I get to be bait?” the older woman said with more than a hint of glee in her voice.
He gave her a wink. “You do, ma’am. Perez’ll give you a lift in his squad car to your house. We’ll put a blanket over your head.” He fished in his pocket and brought out keys, which he tossed at the deputy. “That’s for the old Coronado out back. Five minutes after Perez leaves, you head out with the girl.”
I’m not a girl, and I’m right here, Sheriff! Carina knew she’d have a canker sore from the number of times she’d bitten her lip to keep from commenting.
“We’ll keep you safe, Ms. Black,” the sheriff said. Then he turned to the men in the group and indicated that they follow him. They strode past her and headed down the hallway. A door closed in the distance.
“I’ll go get those clothes.” “No need,” Rita called out. “Have to change in the bathroom, anyway. I’ll fetch ’em from the trash.”
Alone with the deputy, Carina turned and glanced upward. “I’m a lot of trouble.”
She nearly winced at how quickly he agreed.
“Last thing you want is to babysit me. Give me back my money, and I’ll be gone.”
“Can’t do that, ma’am.” Ma’am. She couldn’t recall anyone but a high school kid at a gas station ever calling her ma’am. She liked the way it sounded in his smooth baritone. She thought she might like to hear him say more words. Ones not spit like bullets. She glanced away. “I won’t cause you any more trouble.”
“Can’t help you were born that way.”
Carina narrowed her eyes as she returned his steady stare, not sure whether he’d insulted her or was cracking a joke. Hell, she wasn’t sure which made her hotter.
