As a former Marine, Walker could find a needle in a haystack. But when he's asked by the U.S. Marshals to track down a nanny fleeing from the mafia, he's sure she'll be more trouble than she's worth. Especially after the sexy little thing clubs him and leaves him for dead. Walker's stunned by her courage—and her curves—and can't help feeling drawn to this damsel trying to dig her way out of distress. He'll find her, and when he does, it'll take more than the mafia to tear him away.
Darcy Maddox never expected to be running for her life. But when it suddenly looks like foe may become friend, Darcy's faced with a choice: Go it alone or trust a man she just met—never mind the way his touch gets her heart pounding. The choice seems simple enough until she realizes it's not just her life at stake—it's her heart.
I thought this would be so much better. I’ve been on a huge romantic suspense jag lately and I was so excited for this. I’ll have to ponder the review and possible rating. I just couldn’t finish it. the heroine was an idiot and the hero’s personality kept going from hardened soldier who drank to keep the memories at bay, to random smiley guy who teased and flirted. It felt forced.
I have a hard time relating to a heroine who is TSTL (too stupid to live), so unfortunately this was a DNF (Did not finish) for me.
