Back Cover Blurb:


Attacked in her classroom, widowed teacher Ariel Martin's only thought is for her unborn child. When her student's brother, rookie K-9 officer Tristan McKeller, and his faithful dog save her life, she can't thank him enough. She knows Tristan won't rest until she's safe, but she doesn't want him or his police colleagues digging into her dangerous past. After all, the only person who would want to hurt her is dead…or is he? With her and her child's life on the line, she'll have to trust Tristan with her secrets if she wants to finally get the fresh start she's been desperately seeking.

My Review:

Suspense rules the day here as we get to know the intriguing characters that McCoy develops here. I really enjoyed the continued development of the overarching plot of the series while this novel takes us on an adventure all of its own. Subtly vivid descriptions bring this world to life as a sweet romance brings the characters together. The unique plot brings readers and characters together in a suspenseful yet clean novel that alternately had me in suspense and smiling at the sweetness of the characters.

I really enjoyed how the characters in this novel were developed. Their individuality worked in with the way that they get to know one another. They were the type of individuals who invited readers into their lives for the short while that we get to know them.

All in all this was an enjoyable, sweet, clean romance with a dose of suspense. I would definitely recommend it to others.
