A woman on the run with no one to trust…
When a Christmas vacation at a snowy Mt. Hood cabin turns into a home invasion, Jenna Paine will do anything to protect her four-year-old daughter. Even if it means putting Jenna’s own life on the line. Which she must do when the intruder threatens to kill her. She knows the invader will stop at nothing to take her out, and she can’t let him get close or he might harm her daughter too.
She wants to disappear, but she can’t survive on her own.
In fact, Jenna would be dead now it Brendan Byrd of Nighthawk Security hadn’t come to her rescue during the invasion. Former Army Delta Force and county deputy, Brendan doesn’t think twice about offering his agency’s protection services for Jenna and her precious daughter. What he does think twice about is opening his heart to Jenna only to have it broken again. But as the threats escalate, he must hone his vision where she’s concerned, figure out this crafty attackers identity, and in the process, find a way to keep her alive.
‘He really was an amazing man. Strong. Both physically and mentally. A man of honor. Of service to his country. Loyal to his family.’
Here we have book two in Sleeman’s ‘Nighthawk Security’ series and what a wonderful story Brendan’s is . This series features the five Byrd brothers, all former law enforcement and/or military who have no formed an investigative/security agency.
The Byrd family has gone to their mountain cabin for a skiing Christmas holiday. When Brendan is out walking one evening, he hears a woman screaming for dear life. Turns out, that’s exactly what young widow Jenna Paine is doing. Someone has broken into the cabin she won for the weekend on a radio show and is threatening her but she has no idea why. She is so afraid her four year old daughter will hear from her sleeping in the next room.
Both Jenna and Brendan have pasts that seem to haunt them and both are afraid to trust completely anyone else. But they are stuck together now as all the Byrd brothers and a sister tie up to keep Jenna safe. Because she is facing danger from more than one front.
This book was awesome in its suspense, Then again, Susan Sleeman is a master at inspirational romantic suspense. She keeps us guessing and the action never lets up. I was captivated completely. Then she threw in a few surprises that actually had me in tears. I loved every minute and highly recommend this author.
