For Raegan "Rae" Storm, the trouble in her life is as permanent as the tattoo stamped on her shoulder. After witnessing a double murder, she becomes the target of a bloodthirsty mafia and enters the Witness Protection Program in exchange for her testimony. With her life on the line, the last thing she expects is to lose her heart to the mysterious, handsome Quinn Bronson, the U.S. Marshal protecting her.
Driven by honor and his commitment to his job, Bronson rescues Rae from threats time and time again, but fighting off hit men is easier than ignoring his attraction for the one woman he should never desire: the witness. As danger presses in on Bronson and Rae, neither knows whom they can trust, and their forbidden love could be what destroys them.
This book had enough substance and entertainment to be a five star for me except for two things that snatched that star and held on to it.... Bronson messed up in a major way twice. The first one that had me glaring at my Nook... a comment he made to Rae regarding her suitability to meet his pare... ...more

As I'm writing this, I'm suffering from a book hangover. I know we've all been there, so you feel my pain. I can't put my finger on any one thing that made me love this story, which means, in my opinion, it was the book as a whole that just did it for me.
The book starts pretty much in the thick o... ...more
