She needed a miracle.

She got a Texas Ranger.

Vivian Watts's mission to prove her brother's innocence has left her destitute and desperate. So when Texas Ranger Slate Thompson arrives with his knock-me-out blue eyes and belief in her case, she dares to hope again...until her apartment is burned to the ground. Slate offers refuge at his ranch, but when evidence suggests Vivian is being hunted...can he face down the real killer to protect her?

 

A possible case explodes into more than this Texas Ranger ever expected right before his eyes! With the 2nd book in the Texas Brothers of Company B series, we interact with a few familiar characters from the first book and jaunt off onto another case that leaves us chasing clues and trying to put all of the pieces together. This book is slightly unorthodox in that we know fairly early on who the bad guy is, but the danger and tricks that play out still keep us playing a guessing game on what’s going to happen. Really enjoyed overall, but felt the ending was a little rushed. I would have liked to have seen that play out slightly differently to have a satisfying resolution. Looking forward to more in the series!

Vivian Watts has given up everything and is so broke she’s on the verge of living on the streets in an effort clear her brother of the charge of murder that she just knows he didn’t commit. His trial is fast approaching and she’s just about given up hope that she will find any evidence quickly enough to stop his conviction, but one surprise visit from Texas Ranger Slate Thompson gives her the glimmer of hope she’s needed to keep her spirit to fight up!

Slate should know better than to go off on one of Wade’s hunches, but as soon as he looks at the case he’s shown him, he knows something is suspicious. Is her brother really guilty or is something funny going on at that hospital that seems to be the common denominator between this case and several others that weren’t even known about? When danger seems to be lurking just over Vivian’s shoulder, Slate will stop at nothing to keep her safe … and while he’s at it, they find themselves fighting attraction at every turn!
