More suspense than romance in this book but the main character is a strong woman let down by her husband and has to protect her self and the child her husband told her he had adopted.
After her husband is killed Kate has to go on the run with the baby .
When all seems hopeless she forms an unlikely alliance with a hermit . They both learn to trust each other and work to solve their problems.
A book to be enjoyed by both men and women .

This book by Linda Ladd is called a novel of romantic suspene. It is heavy on suspense and light on romance, but that works for me. I thought we would never get over the continual problems the main character had at the start and we never did until the end. It was interesting and I enjoyed it.

I bought this since I enjoyed her other books (a series of serial killer police procedurals). This wasn't as good. Strong female character reacting to unforseen circumstances and surviving. She meets up with men who are willing to risk their lives for her and her baby.
