As a promise to her dying sister Lark is on a quest to find her niece and make sure she is happy with a loving family, however, what she discovers is sinister and deadly instead.
Devlin Raines a retired and former U.S. Army Ranger from Wind Canyon, has been asked by a close friend to help the desperate Lark find her niece, therefore Devlin takes the case in spite of his reservations. Devlin soon discovers that his attraction for the sexy Lark is more than he has ever felt for another woman in the past, but because of his past, he refuses to give into his growing attraction and unrelenting attachment to Lark.
Adoption rings, drug lords, multiple murder and kidnapping are just a few of the hurdles this couple has to overcome to save Lark’s niece, but when the drug lord comes after the little girl to kidnap her, that is the last straw for Lark and Devlin as they both vow to bring her home at all expense to their own safety.
An amazing storyline that will keep you enthralled as you wait to see the developments not only of the search for Lark’s niece, but how these two characters will realize and admit to themselves that they are better off in every way together than on their own.
The most unsettled of the “no-account Raines boys,” Devlin Raines has long been protecting his heart from injury. But his latest case—and client—forces him to lay everything on the line…
At thirty-two Dev is “mostly retired” from Raines Investigations, content to run operations from his sprawling Arizona home. But Dev has never been able to say no to a beautiful woman, so when Lark Delaney comes to him for help, the former U.S. Army Ranger from Wind Canyon gets back in the game.
Lark is sexy, successful and dedicated to tracking down the baby girl her sister gave up for adoption. It should be a straightforward case, but it’s not long before Dev uncovers a shady adoption ring and worse—the child’s parents have been murdered and the little girl has been taken.
As the case grows dangerous and Lark needs him more than ever, Dev can’t ignore his growing attraction for her. He also can’t trust his judgment with women or the emotions he’s longsince buried. But there’s a chance, if he gets this right and saves Lark’s niece, that he’ll end up saving himself, too.
