Protected By The Lawman by Rhonda Lee Carver
This is suspenseful, dramatic and romantic. Phoenix is dedicated, noble, caring and thoughtful. Ria is independent, stubborn, tough and insecure. Phoenix sees Ria in a bar and is instantly intrigued. While they dance they both feel intense attraction and a pull. When Ria needs protection, Phoenix hides her away. She tries to push him away, he decides that he wants to go slow. They get to know each other, and trust each other, while solving a crime together. It's so good that I couldn't put it down.
I received a complimentary copy of this book from the author. This is my honest and voluntary opinion of it.
