Publisher's Summary

Sheriff Roan Benedict comes from a family of hardheaded men who have a habit of rescuing, and falling for, equally hardheaded women. And sure enough, he's falling for a woman he just shot. This mysterious stranger just helped rob a convenience store. But that doesn't explain the bruises on her jaw and rope burns on her wrist. Though intrigued, Roan is suspicious of her claim that she doesn't remember what happened. Two things are clear to Roan. One: She's lying. Two: Someone is trying to kill her.
There's only one place safe enough for a lady in danger: right by his side. Because in Louisiana, a man holds on to what he wants.

I enjoyed this book, as it is part of Jennifer Blake's "Gentleman Series." It was familiar, as several of the characters I knew from previous books - Clay and Kane. It's ok if you haven't read those, but I'm glad I had.

Roan is a southern gentleman and as such, always knows what's "best" for you. This is the theme throughout the book. The story was interesting, with a little suspense and southern romance. I liked it.
