Cassandra was determined to find her family. She was separated from her father and brother when young. She never saw her father and brother again. Years later, she thought she found her father dead, but her brother was still missing. She was supposed to be chasing a lead in Las Vegas, but a night with a sexy cowboy derailed that plan, and she was quickly called back to Texas... a horse on her ranch may have killed someone... again. Her attempt to reclaim the horse was successful, until a bear sent the horse into a panic flight, and she flew off the horse and went unconscious, only to wake up in a place that's NOT a hospital... and greeted by that sexy cowboy that bedded her in Vegas. What's going on?
Frankly, this book makes absolutely no sense, and feels like disparate scenes stitched together and "voila", a novel. A private security firm with a "silent helo"? What's next? Airwolf? Characters are introduced than abandoned. Witness security that lasted over a decade, including planting fake bodies. Plot lines that doesn't intersect forced together. And the romance just feels... Forced.
It all starts with a dead body in her corral. Well maybe it starts with a one night stand. Either way she has to find a way to protect Buck because the sheriff has already labeled him a killer and wants to put him down. A journey into the mountains to hide him turns out way different than she could ever have imagine. In fact sometimes she wonders if she is am imagining or dreaming some of the stuff that is happening, especially when it turns out that Mr. One-Night-Stand is part of the rescue, or is that kidnap, team.
I didn't want it to end, but I could barely wait to know how it ended. I want to know the people!
It was hard to overlook some of the typos and grammatical errors. Some are understandable, but there were quite a few. Missing words, wrong words (descent when she meant decent, more than once), a lot (a WHOLE lot) of incorrect punctuation, that type of thing. Enough that it pulled me out of the story several times.
I always appreciate getting different POVs, in this case the H/h. I'm not certain I understand why the author chose to write Cass's POV in first person, though, when she wrote Gage's in third. Why not keep them the same? Additionally, a couple of times, it slipped into the wrong voice, using she or her when it should have been I (for Cass). The switch from first to third person jarred me almost every time.
Additionally, I get suspended belief, but this was a little much at times. This enormous family, all gorgeous and brilliant, and they can practically read each others' minds. After a while, it got really old. The explanation of the compound where Cass was held, the talking cat, all of it just became a little too much to swallow.
I'm really torn about whether or not I'd recommend this book to a friend. I strongly recommend an editor for Ms. Jane before she publishes anything else.
Note: My only negative about this book was editing errors. There are a lot of places that were missed during the editing process. A closer look at that problem might make future books more enjoyable. Not a really big deal, but worth mentioning.

Love the action. Cass is one very strong lady! A very determined and smart gal.
