His son was his life…until he met his new "wife"

From the moment he first saw his son, ranchman Dylan Greer knew the baby he'd adopted was his in every way that mattered. And no one—not even the beautiful, strong-willed cop who claimed she was the child's mother—was going to change that. Collena Drake swore a criminal ring had stolen her baby and that someone was crossing

In Fossen’s romance novel, Collena Drake is a cop who swears that the child rancher Dylan Greer has adopted is hers. According to her, a criminal ring stole her baby across county lines absorbing him into an illegal adoption plot. Dylan loves his son and is unwilling to give him up. To protect a child, Collena proposes they marry and share custody. It soon becomes clear that the arrangement is more than just a “business arrangement” to the couple as passion ignites between them.

A nice addition t

I had to read this for a book club. I encouraged it, but quite jokingly, and now I wish I hadn't.

This book was so bad, I'm not really sure where to begin with it. It's the first (and probably last) 'romance' novel I've read, so I don't know if it's a usual trend to use nothing but FRAGMENT SENTENCES. Is that usual? Is it really intended for dramatic purposes? I found it instead to be extremely irritating - finish a thought, then put a full stop! I seriously hope no one would say it's poetic lice

Too many things were happening in this story too fast and at the same time.
Dylan has just caught an intruder who claims she's his adopted son's mother and the adoption was illegal. He past is filled with girlfriends beaten up and his fiance & sister killed by someone who's not been caught yet.
Collena busted the crime ring that stole her son, but now one of them has escaped prison and is out to get her.
She wants her son back, but doesn't want to take him from the father he's known for a year

A mother would do anything to protect her son. I wish that there would be more women that would protect their children, no matter what. Once I started reading this book, I just couldn't stop.

This was a short book filled with suspense & excitement. great story! I would have given it a 5 star rating if it hadn't had pornography in it. Unfortunately, this author doesn't think she can write a decent romance novel without pornography. Sad! good read otherwise.

This story is part of Harlequin's Intrigue line. The story was pretty good, but not outstanding. There was just something missing about the main characters, I didn't really feel connected to them. There were several suspects and I kept changing my mind as to who I thought did it.
