Whilst this is part of a series, I believe it can still be read as a stand-alone and thoroughly enjoyed.

Sheriff Egan McCall is still reeling from the murder of his fiancée which happened in front of him after she’d been taken hostage. Her tragic death had, however, benefited others who had organs from her transplanted into them. One of the recipients is Jordan Gentry, his high school sweetheart and the hostage negotiator who was seriously injured in the same incident and the recipient of a kidn

Delores Fossen
Sheriff Egan McCall’s fiancé was killed during a hostage situation. Jordan Gentry, now a P.I., was one of the officers involved in the hostage/murder of Egan’s fiancé. Jordan also had a relationship with Egan when they were younger. After Egan’s fiancé dies, her organs are donated. Jordan ends up with one of her kidneys after she also took a bullet during the hostage situation.
Egan finds Jordan on the side of the road, shot and heading towards his ranch. Egan st

Sheriff Egan McCall is on his way home when he sees a truck parked on the side of the road with its emergency lights flashing. He recognizes that truck. It belongs to his high school sweetheart, Jordan Gentry, the last person he expects to see by his ranch. She also happens to be the last person he wants to see. She brings back too many very bad memories of the day his fiancee was shot and killed.

Jordan Gentry is sitting on the ground with her back to the front fender of her truck, blood running

Just when you think and old wound is starting to heal, something comes along to reopen it.  In the case of Sheriff Egan McCall, the injury that was Jordan Gentry is ripped wide open.  

Since this was my first Delores Fossen novel, I wasn't sure what to expect.  Let me tell you, I definitely wasn't prepared to be thrown headlong into the action on the very first page.  From the moment you open the book until the last page, you are constantly on the run with Egan and Jordan.  I loved how the story

The reason this book is getting two stars is purely for the fact I really enjoy the author's writing style. But that's really the only reason.

I like my mystery/suspense stories to be full of angst and they have to that element of truth with it. Nothing of this story was believable... at all. Especially with the main two characters, Egan and Jordan. They went from the bottom of the scale with each other to the very top within, what? Two days? No, just no. This book was terribly rushed and repetit
Books and Spoons
An explosive, danger-filled story that kept me guessing and my heart pounding.
Delores Fossen has the talent to write suspense stories filled with up close and deadly non-stop action, with constant twists that keep the story raveling in a tangled spin, and the readers on the edge. I absolutely love it when my conclusions are proven wrong time and again, keeping me clued into the tale, making it unputdownable.
The suspense and romance stories are well built into the series so that the immediate t

This is the third book in the series. However, I haven’t read the first two and didn’t feel lost or confused at all. Sheriff Egan McCall lost his fiancé two years ago and still isn’t really over it. He feels guilty for not stopping what happened. However, could there have been more to what happened then they know. Jordan Gentry feels guilty as well for what happened to Egan’s fiancé and he blames her too. Things are about to get interesting in McCall Canyon. Someone has attacked Jordan and Egan ...more

I love a rough and rugged cowboy, so this one appealed to me. Egan does technically fit that bill, but that's pretty much the best thing I found in this one. The romance is a second chance for Jordan and Egan, so I expected things to move quickly, but given the emotions between them in the beginning, this one moved at warp speed. It just doesn't ring true. Not even a little bit. I mean, the animosity between them is enough that Jordan believes Egan capable of trying to kill her in the beginning, ...more

Jordan benefited from the death of Sheriff Egans fiancee when it meant that she was able to get an organ to continue living. Now it seems that those who also benefited from the fiancees organs are being taken down as well and Jordan believes its Egan until he's also shot as well trying to help her out. After a few attempts at her life Egan will do everything in his power to protect her an find out who is behind this.

Just wow, this book was pretty great. There was so much going on from the moment

This author I have seen around several years with interest but finally getting to put my nose in one of her novels. Boy was I missing out too with the way these are laid out and the characters that take you into their tale. In this one Sheriff Egan is the hunk that captures you along with having to watch out for Jordan. The build up in this one will quickly capture your interest with the drama fueling your movements. Disappear into this one as the relationship develops with you seeing and lookin ...more

A new twist to Delores Fossen's books. This time the danger comes from an unexpected person and the reason is not what everyone thinks. There is enough tension, danger and gunfire for two books and packed into this one. A great read for Fossen fans. I loved the twist on the romance. It made for a different twist between the two main characters.

I received a free copy of the book in return for an honest review.

I was so glad that this story was better than the last book I read. This story NASA really good plot to it. In this story we meet Sheriff Ethan McCall who lost his fiancee who he still greives for. Then we meet PI Jordan Gentry who is also grieving for a friend lost. This story is full of action and some neat twists in it. Its also about letting go if the past and moving forward. Its about giving love a second chance. Delores does a great job on this story. I look forward to her next book.

I liked this story of Egan and Jordan, but it didn’t hold my interest like most of Delores Fossen’s books do. The storyline was a bit far fetched, and I’m still not sure I understand why Egan’s fiancé was killed. But I’m always happy with an HEA.

While this is part of a series, I read it as a stand alone and got everything I needed out of it. There were no unanswered questions.

This kept me guessing right until the end. It was never obvious on who was behind it all. It really could be anyone. Very suspenseful!
