Synopsis from Goodreads:

Two newborns in jeopardy bring together former sweethearts in the second book in USA TODAY bestselling author Delores Fossen's Sweetwater Ranch series!

The last thing Texas Ranger Tucker McKinnon expects to find in his pantry is two sleeping newborns. But it's the woman who spirited the infants to his ranch who stirs the lawman's blood, along with haunting memories. Once, Tucker and Laine Braddock were inseparable…until murder divided their families. Now, with a killer on Laine's trail, Tucker has never felt more powerless. Or been more determined. Desperate to keep her and her innocent charges safe, Tucker uncovers some shocking truths. Including the feelings they still share and the desire they're finding impossible to resist.

My Review:

Fossen always hits the mark with her writing, but this novel went above and beyond that. She had me enthralled from the first page to the very last. This was a very multi-faceted story. Fossen brings romance, drama, suspense, and heartache together in this fantastic story. Her wonderfully creative imagination merges with the oh-so-real action of the story to create a story that will stand the test of time. 

The main characters in this novel were breathtaking, both individually and as a couple. Fossen develops them so fully that I felt like they were my neighbours (you know, the neighbours you actually like). Seeing them weigh what their families want with what they want (and need) for themselves. Their individual conflicts combine with the larger story to create something breathtaking. I also enjoyed the supporting cast. Although not developed in extreme depth, they were phenomenal individuals who made the story all the more real.

This was a remarkable addition to Fossen’s latest series. I would highly recommend it to anyone who enjoys a romantic suspense.
