He’ll endanger everything for her
Widowed Texas Ranger and single dad John Ruiz hardened his heart years ago. Day after day, he tracks the toughest criminals in the Lone Star state, leaving little room for love. So when John butts heads with beautiful nurse who's helping his young son, he’s floored by how quickly the sparks fly.
Ever since her mother's and brother’s brutal murders, Sunny Marlowe has devoted her life to helping save others. Adorable Tonio Ruiz is just another youngster she’s trying to help—or so she tells herself. Little does she know he's John's son. When her life comes under fire, can one mysterious rancher rescue her?
About the author
The prolific author of more than one hundred books, Diana Palmer got her start as a newspaper reporter. A New York Times bestselling author and voted one of the top ten romance writers in America, she has a gift for telling the most sensual tales with charm and humor. Diana lives with her family in Cornelia, Georgia.
Palmer's 200th novel brings in many familiar characters to enrich the background of this placid romance set in present-day San Antonio, Tex. Naive pediatric nurse Suna "Sunny" Wesley, 23, is speechless when incredibly handsome Texas Ranger John Ruiz, who's 10 years her senior, asks her to dance at her hospital's holiday party. John mistakenly assumes her standoffish attitude is a reaction to his Latino heritage, not realizing that Sunny is painfully shy and very much alone in the world following the gang murder of her family. Meanwhile, John can't immediately pursue Sunny because his attention is focused on a new gang war, one that is trying to draw in his 11-year-old son, Tonio. When they do connect, John takes an almost domineering approach, which Sunny meekly accepts. Tonio's journey is the most believable as he copes with his father's frequent absences. Their stories sometimes feel like an excuse for Palmer to give her devoted fans glimpses of previously featured families in Jacobsville, Comanche Wells, and San Antonio, but the intertwining marriages and law enforcement connections will leave new readers somewhat confused. Though not technically a series novel, this isn't a good place to start reading Palmer's romantic mysteries.
