Small-town Texas isn't big enough for the both of them. . .or is it just right?
Sheriff Donovan "Deuce" Cowan has seen his share of trouble, but when he nearly hauls in Maressa Clarkson for speeding, he's suddenly in over his head. These days his long-lost high school classmate is calling herself Rainey Michaels and she sure hasn't come to Kasota Springs by accident. It seems the Los Angeles Deputy DA has chosen the West Texas town to hide out from a dangerous convict. It's all Deuce can do not to corral the sexy spitfire—in the name of keeping her safe, of course. Problem is, Rainey isn't letting anyone in on her big secret, least of all a hard-bodied, former pro-footballer sheriff with an overactive protective instinct. So now she's trying to keep him in line, one slow kiss at a time. . ..
Loved the characters, especially football star turned sexy sheriff Deuce. Rainey is pretty special too. I felt for her and her predicament. I did feel however once the case started unfolding it got a little too jumping ahead and predictable but having said that I love a good historical type romance. I loved the small town feel and fat cat. My heart hurt for Deuce for his mother's issues and him feeling so sad. I love that they each missed the other from high school and get to pick up where they left off. Super romantic, wish it a little more sexy but very sweet and heartwarming. I would love to read more by this author. 4 stars
