A diehard romantic looking to start over in a small town.
Dr. Nina Benitez might be an astrophysicist and a scientist down to her bones, but she also believes in true love and happily ever after—and won't settle for anything less. After a rocky end to her first semester teaching at the University of Montana, she's looking forward to a new school year and a fresh start in the small town of Rifle Creek. When she meets her roommate's work partner, a sexy, hard-edged detective, Nina is immediately intrigued. However, it's soon clear they're like oil and water. But when she's confronted by the painful past event she wanted to forget, she faces an even greater danger. A predator is bent on silencing her forever, and Nina's only hope of survival is the unattainable man who's captured her heart.
A cynical cop determined to guard his heart.
Tate Baldwin has dedicated his life to serving and protecting, first in the military, and now as a detective in Rifle Creek. Badly burned by his last relationship, he isn't looking to get involved with anyone, especially a brilliant college professor who seems to have her head in the clouds. Yet even Tate can't deny the attraction between them that soon grows into something more. And when a secret from her past triggers a lethal threat, Tate will risk everything to stand between her and the monster who wants her dead.

So, so good
I heard such a hard time putting this book down! The story was riveting, exciting and sweet with the extra spice I know and love in Ms. Cross’ books. Highly recommend this book, and I can’t wait for book 2 in the series!!
Great new series.
Lethal Edge is the first book in the Riffle Creek series by Kaylea Cross and it’s a small town romance with lots of suspense and great storyline.
Tate Baldwin is a detective and doesn’t believe in love. He had a long relationship that ended badly. So romance and relationship is not for him.
Dr. Nina Benitez is a professor of astrophysics and science and a hopeless romantic. She believes in soulmates.
This couple was so different from each other but they complimented each other.
Love watching Tate fight against his feelings and finally accepting his love for Nina.
Love the storyline and the suspense. Great start to a new series I’ll be definitely reading more about.
