Danger and protection. Fight and Flight. Opposites. When danger arrives, we have a choice to make. Are we going to stand and fight or run away to safety. Sometimes the choice is taken out of our hands. We do it to protect others, such as our children, but when confronted, we must decide how we are going to handle it.
Janalyn Knight's new release features a dangerous ex-con bent on revenge and the protection of a strong cowboy. This story is super charged with action and thrills. A Must Read!
A fragile heart, damaged from a devastating loss, must build walls for protection. The threats of an ex-con drive a mother to extremes to protect her son. With two souls hesitant to trust, will they find the forgiveness and freedom to love?
The last thing Ward Ramsey expects to find is Jayme Bonner on his doorstep, applying for his ranch hand position with her young son in tow. The complicated situation makes him want to turn her away, but the desperation in her eyes reaches him in an unexpected way.
Jayme never thought she'd be fleeing for her life and the safety of her son. Ward’s North Texas ranch could be the sanctuary she needs, and she throws herself into the job with all of her ranching knowledge and skills. As the two work closely together, feelings neither expected grow, and a passion hot enough to heat the cool nights ignites.
As love blossoms and long-held barriers fall, danger creeps into their newfound happiness. When Ward is injured by the ex-con hunting Jayme, the determined ranch hand decides it's time to take the battle to the hateful man out to kill her.
Hatred stands no chance against this woman on a mission...
A loud sound woke her. Her head shot up. What time was it? She checked the clock on the bedside table. Eleven-thirty. Her cell phone pealed again. Hoping Dusty didn’t wake, she punched the green button and whispered, “Hello?”
“Hi there, bitch.”
Blacke! She gasped, cold terror racing through her limbs.
“That’s right. It’s me. You think you can hide? Think again. I’ll find you. And jail gave me lots of time to think about what I’ll do to you when I do. You and me? We’re going to have some fun. Sleep good now.” He hung up.
She lay there, clutching the phone and unable to move. Prison hadn’t changed him at all. He was coming for her. She shivered, suddenly icy cold and vulnerable.
She moved to the couch and covered herself with the quilt her mother had lovingly made. Its usual calming magic held no sway tonight. How could she protect herself? How could she protect Dusty? The man was brutal, insane when he was angry. His attack was proof of that. She’d never felt quite as alone as she did right this moment.
Praise of the book:
In Cowboy Refuge, author Janalyn Knight sends a strong woman to seek refuge at Ward’s ranch. Once he falls for Jayme and realizes the gravity of her situation, he’s enough of a gentleman to want to save her, but independent Jayme doesn’t need his help. A sweet romance with a bit of after-the-wedding-ceremony spiciness. - Suanne Schafer author of A Different Kind of Fire
