This New York Times bestselling author delivers a "page-turning romance" (Nora Roberts) about a woman in jeopardy who finds protection--and love--in the arms of a small-town cowboy.
After running wild in his youth, Finn Monroe is now on the other side of the law as the local attorney. Between his practice and working at his family's ranch, his days aren't as exciting as they used to be--until Jessica Blair steps into his office. Gorgeous and determined, Jessie has a hunch her aunt is in trouble, and Finn is her last hope. As someone who relies on facts rather than feelings, Finn is skeptical. But it can't hurt to do a little digging.
Jessie knows her aunt, and there is no way she would disappear on an "extended honeymoon" after hastily marrying a smooth-talking cowboy. Something is wrong, and Jessie is going to find out what. As soon as she and Finn start poking around, it becomes clear someone is willing to go to great lengths to keep them from the truth. But as the danger grows, so does their attraction. With both their lives on the line, Finn will discover just how far he'll go to keep Jessie safe.
Includes Cowboy to the Rescue, a bonus novella by A.J. Pine!
Ryan concludes the Montana Strong series (following The Cowboy Next Door) by pairing off the final Monroe brother, Finn, with his perfect match. Though Finn, a talented lawyer, works on the family ranch with his brothers and adopted family, he resides in the nearby town, which is where CPA Jessica Blair asks his help with locating her aunt. It's completely out of character for Aunt Nola to marry out of the blue and vanish on a honeymoon without a word about her whereabouts; Jessica suspects Nola's new husband is a con artist. When someone nefarious begins targeting Jessica, she's quickly brought into the Monroe family embrace and household, cheerfully helping with ranch chores and cooking while Finn attempts to untangle the mystery. Series fans will welcome a reunion with the Monroe family, who lovingly support one another while enjoying elaborate (and elaborately described) meals. Finn's reluctance to initiate a relationship with his client is a minor barrier to his and Jessica's predictable, but enjoyable, love story. This is a pleasant conclusion to the series.
