|After someone starts stalking Jemma Leigh, she heads back to her hometown for her own safety and that of her young son. Not long after arriving in town, Jemma is almost run over by none other than her ex -- the one man she's never gotten over. The man whom also happens to be her child's father though he doesn't know.
Ted Garrity can't believe Jemma is back in town, or that he almost runs her over while driving through. When Ted learns that someone is stalking her, he decides to help keep her safe by becoming her personal bodyguard. Yet when he learns of the secret she's kept hidden for ten years, the question remains. Can he forgive her before the stalker makes their move?
This was a wonderful story full of passionate and chilling moments, two key elements to a romantic suspense. The plot was well-written and I enjoyed how it progressed with Jemma and Ted meeting again after ten years as well as how they came to be back together because of her stalker. The dialogue was full of intensity and kept me on the edge of every page with anticipation over what would happen next. The sex scenes were scorching, and illustrated the strong chemistry that Jemma and Ted had. What I liked so much about Jemma was her determination to hold it together for the sake of her son. While with Ted, I liked that he could look past the secret Jemma had kept from him to help keep her safe.
Overall, Ms. Nelson has done an exceptional job penning this novel which has given me an appreciation of her work and made me keen to read other stories written by her.
