Twenty-four-year-old Cassie Lovell has a great job, good friends, and an apartment with a killer view. That is, until life is turned upside down. Without the chance to say goodbye, Cassie is forced into a witness protection program on Emerson Ranch. Just when she fears life is doomed, Cassie meets Shane Emerson, the stunningly handsome cowboy who’ll be posing as her newlywed groom. 

Shane Emerson is determined not to fall for the woman he’s agreed to harbor. Especially since the whole thing was his family’s way of trying to get him hitched. So why is it when he takes Cassie into his home, Shane wants nothing more than to turn their make-believe marriage into more than just a sham? 

In a moment of weakness, Shane steals a kiss. 
In return, Cassie steals his heart. 
Yet before they confess their undying love, 
a hidden danger threatens to tear them apart.

*Although this novel is considered clean romance, it does contain passionate kissing and a few mild curse words.

My Review:

This book made “cowboy” and Montana look sooooo GOOD!!!! I’ve never seen cowboy boots as sexy, but I’ll never look at them the same ever again. Lol.

Montana… that’s another subject. I’m already to move there as it is, so this story nearly had me packing my bags.

It wasn’t so much the wide open skies, the starry nights… it is the pace of live. I enjoyed the family get-togethers, the bustle of the ranch hands waiting for dinner. The wives visiting… the kids riding big wheels inside the house.  :-D  Yep.  I really felt like Cassie had arrived to a place that FELT like home.

Of course, Kimberly Krey chases her there with frightening threats on her life… and she’s not afraid of jumping into the nitty-gritty of relationships and misunderstandings. Watch out! I connected with all the twists and turns and second-guesses. I blushed plenty over the hot scenes almost shouting at the hot tub “get a room, already!” Ha!

(The sexual tension jumps high and stays there the entire book without crossing adult boundaries. Just skips along ‘em, teasing.)

On the other hand… this is a bleak look at Seattle. *cough* It can’t be that bad.

So, yea… I enjoyed Cassie, totally. And Shane really did make cowboy look good, just like the well-worn book of a friend. (I Loved that part.)  But my favorite character has to be Montana. I think I’m in love with the state of Montana.

And I'm happy to hear there are more stories in that setting already in the making. Yes!!

If you’re looking for fast-paced, home-made fun… and a lot of great kissing… you’ve arrived. I really enjoyed this book and read it in record time despite a busy summer. Lol.
