Black Canyon Conspiracy
Harlequin Intrigue, Aug 18 2015, $5.50
Billionaire Richard Prentice held former TV news reporter Lauren Starling captive for six weeks. After DEA agent and Ranger Brigade operative Marco Cruz rescued her; Richard successfully spun the tale that Lauren was a guest who wanted to stay and made up her fantasy of being his prisoner.
Marco knows the truth and fears that obsessed Prentice through some untraceable goon will come after Lauren. He vows to protect her, but also believes ultimately the only way to keep her safe is to prove Prentice kidnapped her. As the bodyguard and the damsel in distress fall in love, danger comes from unexpected sources, but diligent Marco remains adamant about Lauren’s safety and his gut belief that though obfuscated all roads lead back to Prentice.
The latest Ranger Brigade romantic intrigue (see Colorado Bodyguard, Lawman Protection and The Guardian) is an engaging thriller starring a likable lead couple who series fans adore and a diabolical affluent villain who readers detest. Although over the top of Castle Peak, Black Canyon Conspiracy is a tense suspense.
