To Keep Her Safe…
Former CIA agent turned cowboy, Jacob Donovan wants nothing more than a simple life. Just the ranch and occasionally someone warm and sweet in his bed. Until Sallie comes back into his life and all of a sudden he wants to be in her bed every night...all night. When he discovers that her life is in danger, he swears he’ll protect her.

Strong, Silent Cowboy is book 2 in the Moving Violations series by Lora Leigh and Veronica Chadwick and new to me authors. I definitely need to read more from these authors!
Six years ago, Jake and Kyra meet in Switzerland, spend three glorious days and hot steamy nights together and then Jake disappears. 3 years later, Sallie “Kyra” Hamblen moves to Deer Haven because she is on the run, using fake identification and recognizes Jacob “Jake” Donovan as her guy from 3 yrs ago but he doesn’t recognize her...another 3 yrs pass and still he doesn’t recognize her.
Then one night Jacob approaches her, takes her home and now the sparks really fly and so do the dreams for Jacob. It seems he was severely injured 6 years ago and has no memory of a week while is was undercover for the CIA.
Suspense, memory loss, hot, steamy romance,secrets and so much more, will Jacob remember what happened 6 years ago, keep Sallie safe and forge ahead to a HEA? Only time will tell.
What lovely and heartfelt dedications for a brilliant author that was lost too soon. You will definitely be missed. Rest In Peace Veronica Chadwick!
This is book 2 in the Moving Violations series and it features Jacob and Sallie. Six years ago these two had what it takes to survive a lifetime together. That is until he walked out the door saying he’d be back and he never did. Sallie has been through a lifetimes worth of pain. She strong most of the time but sometimes seems like she’s on the verge of a silent breakdown. Jacob is ALPHA to the max! He is a perfect example of how hard an alpha man can fall for his woman. Let me just say that this man most definitely knows his way around the bedroom. SUPER SEXY!!!
This story line is fantastic with all the twists and turns. The mystery and suspense is brilliant and had me on the edge of my seat. The characters are awesome! I’m not sure if this series will continue but I hope those Culpepper boys get their stories told.
Strong, Silent Cowboy
I received a complimentary copy of this book from the publisher via NetGalley and I am voluntarily reviewing it.
I really don't know how to rate this book off-hand. The story line didn't seem cohesive enough for me. There was a great deal of repetition. Also I was left with some questions and I don't think there will be an answer, unless the organization that is after Jacob comes back in the next novel. I did enjoy this book and was glad to have read it. But there were so many hang-ups with it that some may not enjoy it but then again some may.
While it is a part of a series, you don't have to read the prior one to enjoy this one. Also some self-publishing authors may put in spelling and grammatical errors to help prevent privacy, this book had a great deal of errors. There were some sections that I had to re-read them just to figure out the author's intent.
While this is a part of a series, you don't have to read the prior one to enjoy this. The first book was written almost 2 years ago.
This is a very spicy read so I would only recommend it to someone over the age of 18.
