Publisher's Summary

Quinn Marshall is haunted after nearly dying in a failed attempt to save his sister. The last thing the former Houston homicide detective wants is another woman to watch over, but someone important to his brother Josh is in trouble, and Quinn's basic nature is to protect.
Soap opera star Lorie Chandler has already lost her husband to an obsessed fan and now her son is the madman's new target.
While the police hunt the killer, Quinn's rugged Texas ranch is the ideal hiding place for Lorie and her child. Neither Quinn nor Lorie expects the explosive heat or the powerful emotion that flares to life in his canyon refuge, yet there is no future for them and both are painfully aware that their time together can only be temporary.
When the madman finds them, Quinn's sole focus is on keeping Lorie and the boy he's come to love safe, even though his success will mean that he will have to give them up to a life where he cannot belong.
The first book in New York Times best seller and USA Today best-selling Texas romance author Jean Brashear's Texas Heroes: The Marshalls series is a sexy, suspenseful wounded hero romance that will grab your heart and keep it racing.

Heart Wrenching!

Quinn Marshall is still dealing with feelings of guilt after not being able to save his sister from a stalker so when his brother asks him to help a friend with a similar problem he is a bit hesitant. Lorie Chandler has already lost her husband and is desperate not to lose her son, Grant, to the same madman. When they meet there is an immediate connection and Quinn will do anything to keep Lorie and Grant safe. Grant is just adorable and really adds to the story. Quinn is the ultimate hero; so caring and treats Lorie so tenderly after her ordeal. Jean Brashear never fails to give an edge of your seat, action packed storyline that you can’t put down. This one was truly heart wrenching. And of course Eric Dove always delivers these stories so skillfully that we are drawn into the story and time goes by before we know it. Now on to Josh’s story!

Loved this book

I have both read and listened to this book by Jean Brashear. The characters are strong, but vulnerable. There's a bit of paranormal, but not over done. It is one of my favorites.

Eric G Dove is an excellent narrator. His voice is so soothing and easy to listen to.
