Book Description

Kelly Watson, aka Teresa Pastral, threw the Fifth Amendment out the window when she testified against her mob boss husband at his murder trial. Now divorced, she has begun a new life in the Witness Security Program.

Only...the mob finds her, thanks to handsome ex-lawman J.T. Romano, who uses her as bait to lure the man who murdered his wife and unborn child to town. To ensure her safety, she is forced to trust J.T., the man who has betrayed her to the mob. But can she trust him with her heart?

5.0 out of 5 stars 5 Hearts from TRS! March 18, 2010
Format:Kindle Edition
I loved this book. It grabbed me from the first page and didn't let go until the end. It has edge-of-your-seat action with each attempt on their lives becoming increasingly serious, especially when the second man, posing as a Witsec agent, enters the fray. The characters are great. I love J.T. and Karen, and love to hate the bad guys. The love between the main characters is beautiful and believable, the sex scenes both sensitive and sensuous. It is heart-wrenching when a misunderstanding tears them apart. The plot thickens and while we know two men are pursuing her, we're not sure of the second man's motives. He's supposed to bring her back to Chicago for Victor, Antonio's brother, who intends to marry her, but his actions do not match what he says. Gradually, what appears to be concern changes into something we can only term as deadly. Every chapter has the reader desperate for more. Both J.T. and Karen endure more than anyone should, but they keep on fighting, determined to come out on top. This is one of the best romantic suspense books I've ever read and I will certainly look for this author's next book. - jaye Leyel

3.0 out of 5 stars Witness Protection??? March 26, 2013

This was a good book, it kept my interest but did not keep me from turning off the light. The two main characters were thrust together for a mutual purpose(so to speak), but both were keeping secrets. The story would have been much shorter if they spilled the beans, but not half as good.

2.0 out of 5 stars not what I expected March 3, 2012

Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
Unfortunately I read about the author after I purchased and began this book. Eventually I figured out that it was a romance novel in a mystery thriller package - so I did not finish it and returned it.
