After serving on a jury that finds a gangster guilty, Cassie is set into witness protection on a ranch that has offered her protection. While there she meets and falls in love with Shane. Unfortunately, Cassie knows her time is limited and she can't possibly be more than a burden.
Shane's family has been taking in people from witness protection programs for years. In fact his two brothers have met their soul mate through the witness protection program. His family is convinced that Cassie is the woman for Shane, but Shane isn't too sure. Just because his brothers got lucky doesn't mean he will.
I love the original premise to this story, not necessary the witness falls in love, but the idea that the program has no money to send witnesses to, so they take advantage of this underground network. Great idea. Shane and Cassie are perfect for each other. Shane is a great cowboy hero. It isn't necessary to read books one and two to enjoy this book, but you might want to check out books one and two first, or read them after you check out this one.
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.
*Though this novel is considered clean romance, it contains passionate kissing & a few mild curse words.
