Who says a wild heart can’t be tamed?
For years, I lived for the job and let it control me. Violence was all I knew. I protected, killed, and served. My name is Blake Evans, one of the best undercover cops in the country. I thought I was about to live a quiet life on my ranch in Wyoming until an old friend showed up and changed everything. He brought me her, Hadley Rivers, country music sensation and the one woman I couldn’t have. I didn’t want her but she had me completely roped in.
My job is to protect her, to keep her away from some psycho who wants her for himself. However, there’s more to her story than I was led to believe. I promised to keep her safe and I won’t back down . . . even if I have to die trying. I can’t let him have her.
Hadley is a country music sensation who has been stalked for a couple of years. She’s forced into hiding at a Wyoming ranch after her friend and bodyguard are shot while trying to protect her. Blake, the owner of the ranch and an undercover cop, is not happy at being forced to protect someone he assumes is a Hollywood princess, but the job comes at the request of two trusted colleagues and includes a huge pay-day he just can’t ignore. But he didn’t make it easy on her and enjoyed putting her in situations that pushed her out of her comfort zone.
Hadley might be a celebrity and an heiress, but she’s definitely no spoilt princess. She had no problem getting dirty, pulling her weight and giving back the shit that was thrown at her by the very rude and very annoying Blake Evans. Blake initially treats her like crap simply because he didn’t want the job; he’s a hunter and a killer, not a babysitter. But after watching her in action and looking into her file, he realised she was not what he expected and changed his whole attitude towards her immediately. He’s a dangerous man and he can be deadly when he needs to be, but you know he would truly die to save a loved one.
ROPED IN is book 2 in the Armed & Dangerous series but it can be read as a stand-alone. It’s told in dual POVs and while it’s a story that is mostly mystery and suspense, there were a few funny scenes that lightened up the story a little bit. Who the stalker ended up being didn’t make much sense to me, but in that respect, I truly didn’t see it coming. I really enjoyed ROPED IN and I’m looking forward to reading book 3 when it comes out next year. I wouldn’t mind reading a story about her bodyguard, Connor, because I think he’s in desperate need of a HEA.
