Her Christmas Protector by Terri Reed Love Inspired Suspense #79 – Dec 07
I didn't want to put this book down because I was caught up in the story of a beautiful woman fleeing her abusive, possessive ex-husband. Terri Reed didn't let the suspense lag even when I thought Faith had found sanctuary.
Elegant heiress Faith Delange, is running for her life. In a diner in Oregon, she meets a rancher, Luke Campbell, who needs a companion/caregiver for his mother who is recovering from a heart attack. Faith thinks she'll be ‘out of sight' on a ranch, so she takes the job and quickly finds a friend in Luke's mother.
Luke, a captain on leave from the military, wants to get his mother back on the road to recovery before he heads back to his troops. But his attraction to Faith has him hesitating, especially when he realizes she's in danger and his protective instincts kick in.
Add to this a woman scorned and you have a first class tale of intrigue.
Heat level: Affectionate (kissing and hand holding but nothing more.
