Overview

A woman on the run.

Miami socialite Emma Garcia has been running from who she is her entire life. When she witnesses a horrific crime, she goes on the run. In desperation, she answers an ad for a chef on a remote horse farm in the middle of nowhere, Florida. It seems like the perfect plan until she figures out what to do with her secrets. The only thing she doesn't count on is being attracted to the rugged cowboy who owns the place. Whenever he comes around the only thing she can focus on is his seductive voice and sinful body.

And her past is about to catch up with her.

Former Marine Caleb Ryder hires Emma even though he knows she's lying about her identity. He desperately needs the help, but he also doesn't have the heart to turn away a woman so obviously in need. After being burned by a woman once, he doesn't let that deter his mission to claim Emma's body and heart. Now that she's his, he'll face any threat to protect her, no matter how deadly.

I loved this book from beginnning to end. What was not to love? Hawt cowboy meets girl running from her past plus hawt steamy smex with a touch of danger all wrapped up in a novella. This book did not disappoint.

Great Book!! This is a great book by Katie Reus. Emma Garcia has been running from herself her whole life, when she witnesses a horrific crime, she goes on the run. She takes a job on a horse farm in the middle of nowhere as a chef. She does not planning on falling for Caleb,the sexy cowboy who owns the farm. Caleb knows that Emma is running from something when he interviews her for the job, but he hires her anyway because he needs the help. He is determined to find out the truth and help Emma with her problems. This book is a great short story and is full of romance, mystery and adventure.  A Review copy was provided to me in exchange for a fair and honest review. The free book held no determination on my personal review.

This could have been a really good book if the author had spent more time and pages to develop the story. I dislike novellas. 85 pages is not long enough.

## I loved the synopsis. It sounded fun. However this book wasn't all that it could've been. The hero and heroine didn't have any chemistry and that is a must in my opinion. It was just ok, approx. 85 pages.
