He’ll put his own life on any line, if it means keeping her away from the danger stalking him.
Fleeing from a CIA kill squad, former operative Dean Delgado is hiding out back in Wyoming, where the terrain—and the people—are all too familiar. Working undercover, he befriends veterinarian Kate Sawyer—the woman he was once forced to leave behind. But when an emergency call brings Kate under fire, Dean must blow his cover to save her. Now, despite the risks to his own life, protecting Kate is the only mission that matters.
Point of view:
3rd person. Mostly alternating POVs between Dean & Kate. There are a few sections from the antagonist’s POV as well.
While the storyline for Dean & Kate’s relationship is completely covered in this book – there’s an overall arc to the Fugitive Heroes: Topaz Unit series that makes these best experienced in order.
This is a terrific second chance romance with a lot of mystery/thriller/suspense added in. This time it isn’t just the CIA after rogue Topaz agent, Dean – Kate has been dragged into a crime ring run in her hometown. Plus, the CIA pits siblings against each other so that Dean really doesn’t know who he can trust. I loved the pacing for this one.
I’m so exited for the final book in the series featuring Topaz’s leader, Hunter.
