Risking his own life is one thing. Risking hers is another…

It was supposed to be a girls-only weekend in the California mountains. But when Lucy Parker is carjacked by an escaped prisoner, her fun weekend takes a nighmarish turn. Now she’s caught up in a dangerous world of stolen money, vicious drug dealers, and murder, and the only thing keeping her alive is her oh-so-hot captor.

Imprisoned for a crime he didn’t commit, undercover cop Jake Dalton wants answers-now. Worse, he’s dragged Lucy into the mix, and she’s now guilty by association. With their lives on the line, the race is on to get to Las Vegas before they’re killed…and they’re running out of time.

This was a fast-paced story, starting from the first page. Undercover cop Jake escapes from prison to try to clear his name. Lucy happens to be in the wrong place at the wrong time and get's pulled into Jake's problems. What starts out as a kidnapping, turns into more between Jake and Lucy. I re ...more

By Linda September 30, 2015

I loved this book - it is a great romantic suspense that drew me right in. It starts with Lucy getting lost and kidnapped by undercover cop, Jake. The sexual tension in the air between them sizzles from the very beginning. Lucy doesn't know he's a cop and doesn't understand why she's so attracted to ...more

By Elisabeth January 19, 2016

Wow! This was a great book and I read a good third of it one handed while stirring dinner because I couldn't leave off which is my high watermark for quality writing. It's fast paced from the start and completely gripping from the moment Lucy's car is hijacked by a kidnapper who is not all he seems. ...more

By Terri July 27, 2016

This novel should have five stars. Up until the last few pages, it did. It's still worth reading!

But the author dropped into Hallmark card-speak at the last, and left me flat. I don't want goo. I want specifically her, specifically him, specifically their HEA. Do not go generic. This pair was never ...more

*** 4.5 Stars ***

This is the debut book for Ms. Skendrovich and I have to say that she rocks. I love reading a book that has action, romance and love it when the characters captivate me. There were some emotional moments in this story who wouldn’t be emotional when a prisoner jumps into your vehicle ...more

By Kelley October 23, 2015

This started out as a very promising, fast paced story. There is plenty of suspense. The characters are likable and their chemistry and banter are great. However, the ending seemed flat to me. For two people who cared a lot about the other, their actions once the case is solved did not fit with the ...more

About the author

Cathy Skendrovich

Cathy Skendrovich has always loved a good story, and spent her formative years scribbling what is now called Fan Fiction. The current heartthrob of the time featured heavily in all her stories. Unfortunately, once she went to college, her writing took the form of term papers. Upon graduation, Cathy became a middle school English teacher. Along the way, she married her husband of now thirty-three years, had two sons, and moved to southern Orange County, California. She chose to work part-time in the school system there. She eventually joined the online writing site, Wattpad, and credits those followers for encouraging her to become a published author. She is a member of RWA, and writes contemporary romance for Entangled. Her Entangled titles include Prisoner of Love, available now, and the soon-to-be-released romantic suspense, Protecting the Nanny. She also has two historical romances published through Literary Wanderlust publishers. You can visit Cathy at her website,, Facebook,, Twitter,, and Instagram,
