Being a model for fifteen years has been very gratifying for Marissa Walker, and she has earned the respect of those with whom she works. But during her most recent runway show, another model is killed by an unidentified person. Unfortunately, the two women share a painful past history, and this fact has the police asking lots of questions before Marissa can be cleared as a suspect.
Since the reason for her friend being murdered is not known, a man associated with her sister will watch over Marissa until the facts are uncovered, just in case she is also in danger. Jack Larson actually works for the West Company, a secretive spy organization, and his skills as a former special forces solider might come in handy. When Marissa is threatened shortly thereafter, her new protector does not hesitate in keeping her safe. Neither is looking to be in a new relationship, but spending time together has Jack understanding the woman under his care is much more than a supermodel.
The fashionable world of modeling is portrayed with much believability, as a day of shooting takes place or a party afterward is held. But there can also be a darker side when jealousy is evident and hurtful words are spoken. I could just see someone speaking as a few did to Marissa, making me realize having a career where a person is famous is not always pleasant. Though the supermodel could have become snobby and disdainful, she tried to be polite to anyone with whom she came in contact, regardless of their interaction.
ESCORTED BY THE RANGER has heartfelt emotions along with unanticipated jeopardy. Danger may have brought Marissa and Jack together, but it was genuine feelings that made their relationship develop into more than just professional. Both have bad experiences in their past when it comes to the opposite sex, and how they react to each other is often with misgivings because of doubts that they just cannot ignore. Jack knows he should pay no attention to how much he desires Marissa, but being with her every hour of the day is more temptation than he can resist. Responses are honest, and I enjoyed watching them explore what was between them. With the possibility of a threat arising constantly being on their minds, these two have much to ponder at all times. Another compelling story from C.J. Miller.
I voluntarily reviewed the book and all comments are my honest opinion
