Emma Jordan has returned home after her father’s death to run the animal sanctuary that had been his legacy. But strange things start happening, and it seems that someone is out to shut her down, someone who doesn’t mind putting lives in jeopardy to see it through. When Hidden Falls’ sexiest fireman starts to ask questions, Emma needs to make sure his charm doesn’t distract her from keeping her dreams alive.
Ben McQuaid has an obligation as a local fireman to protect the community, even from a well-meaning wildlife veterinarian who’s in way over her head. But, it’s becoming hard to keep his loyalty to the town and his desire for the pretty vet separate. As Ben and Emma become caught in a dangerous game of cat and mouse, their feelings for each other are growing.
Will they let duty drive them apart or will they dare to fall?
T J Kline is a new author for me.After reading this book, which is the second in the series, not only am I looking forward to reading the second and third book in this series or trilogy, but I am also looking forward to reading other books by Kline. She writes with such grit, eloquence, and talent. She creates characters that have depth and are multi-layered. This book was a romance but I also enjoyed that the romance was built and felt organic, not forced. It was also nice to read a romance where romance was actually not the only focal point. I truly enjoyed this read and look forward to reading more from this author.
