Very good book, action packed from start to finish. When Josie hears about her father's injury and heart attack she feels that she must go see him. She hasn't seen him in more than three years and he has no idea she is still alive. When she gets to the hospital she and her son are attacked, then Brendan comes to their rescue. Josie was involved with him years ago when she was investigating him as the son of a mobster. Now she has no idea whether to trust him.

I liked both Brendan and Josie. Josie

In Childs’ romantic suspense novel, after spending years in witness protection, Josie Jessup and her son return home only to walk into a deadly trap. Her former lover, FBI agent Brendan O’Hannigan, comes to her rescue and is willing to go as far as it takes to protect them both.

A good addition to the Royal Bodyguards series.

To sum up this book by a proverb: God sends meat and the devil sends cooks.
It started as good ideas and I was stuck. As the stories piled on, they became inconsistent, and sometimes directly contradicting. The biggest problem was that there were a lot break lines came when I least expect them to, really distracted.

This book represents why I still read Harlequin Intrigue novels. It was action-packed through-out, and had so many twists that kept me reading. I enjoyed Josie & Brendan's interactions, and I found CJ to be oh-so-cute!!

I really enjoyed this title, and definitely recommend it!

Once I started reading, I couldn't put it down. It was so action packed. Loved both Brendan and Josie and how they interacted as a couple.
