Opposites don’t attract. They ignite.

The small Montana town near the Kooskia reserve seemed like the perfect place for Juliet Montgomery to hide from her not-so-law-abiding family. But when her peace is shattered by a break-in and threatening phone calls, it’s clear someone back in New York knows where she is. It’s time to plan her getaway, and fast—but first, she needs to tie up a few loose ends. Namely, finding out exactly what the town’s sexy cowboy sheriff is hiding in his holster…

Sheriff Quinn Lodge has enough demons of his own to know when someone’s hiding something. Clearly, he needs to do a thorough investigation to uncover what’s beneath Juliet’s uptight, city-girl exterior—preferably one piece of clothing at a time. But when their chemistry goes from fizzy to full-on explosive, things start getting complicated. How can Juliet stay beneath the covers with Quinn, when doing so means blowing her cover?

I knew I was going to love this family and this town. Quinn slides right into Juliet’s life before she even realizes how deep he’s gotten. He does it with such smoothness and confidence, I couldn’t help but be amused.

Juliet has to keep her past a secret. She didn’t grow up in a conventional family, and this has caused her life to be in danger. She admires and loves the people she’s met in her new small town and doesn’t want to hurt them or bring evil to their doorstep. It’s not so easy to extricate herself from everything, especially once she agrees to a fake relationship to help Quinn out.

I love a fake relationship. There’s always such tension between the couple. Will they, won’t they, and once they do where will it lead? It’s so yummy!

When Juliet’s past comes back to haunt her, things turn high stakes. This story is all sorts of fun, strain, chemistry, and action.
