Book Blurb: When a baby goes missing, a Texas marshal and a woman from his past discover there’s a whole lot more behind this kidnapping…
Holden Ryland certainly didn’t become a marshal just to end up busting his ex, Nicky Hart, for taking files from Conceptions Fertility Clinic. But only Nicky knows just what was really stolen: a newborn being held for ransom. A newborn who is kin to both her and Holden. The missing boy is only the start of a mystery that snakes through Texas, winding its way through their families. Bad blood may linger between them, but Holden can protect his nephew back at the Silver Creek Ranch. If they can lay their past to rest to rescue this child, is it possible for them to have a future together?
Review: Delores Fossen is probably one of the most fabulous writers out there. She writes great contemporary romances and intrigues.
Holden however raises the bar for all writers for the Intrigue line.
There's not a lot romance going on in this book, but the story doesn't require it. Nicky and Holden have a past affair but that really has nothing to do with what's going on, and by that I mean, a missing senator, a shady fertility clinic and embryos that were implanted into surrogates so that when the babies were born the parents could be blackmailed. One of the babies happens to be the child of both Nicky and Holden's siblings who are now deceased.
The story was action packed with so many twists and turns that it was impossible to figure out who was involved with the Genesis project, that Nicky was investigating and gets the ball rolling on all the action.
There are so many people that could be involved too. Some of them are pretty surprising too. I can totally see this book being made into a tv movie
I really enjoyed this book. Delores Fossen never disappoints.
