Former Ranger Levi Marshall is working undercover on the ranch owned by Lily Roberts’ cousin. She is in danger from the rapist/murder she testified against and who was put in prison and recently escaped. Levi’s job is to keep an eye on Lily without blowing his cover. Because of his background growing up on a ranch, he has told nobody what his real mission is in hopes he will be seen as a ranch hand, which will allow him to observe and investigate those around him.
Lily Roberts is a schoolteacher who testified against her former mentor, who is a dangerous rapist/murderer. She refused to enter the Witness Protection Program and believes the quiet life she now lives near her cousin’s family will keep her safe. However, things don’t turn out as expected. First is her unexpected attraction to Levi Marshall, who works for her cousin. She thought she had sworn off men, but she is so attracted to him and it appears he feels the same. But can she trust him?
When the monster she testified against escapes, her life is in danger since he now wants revenge. She wants this monster captured but is also in fear of putting everyone she loves in danger. When she discovers Levi Marshall is actually an undercover U.S. Marshall, she is angry that he lied to her. She tries to figure out how she can bring this dangerous creep down but realizes she needs help, so she has no choice but to accept help from Levi.
I liked HER RENEGADE COWBOY and enjoyed the relationship between Levi and Lily. She is a spitfire, but she also is rash and impulsive. It takes a strong man to pull her back, and Levi accepts that challenge because he wants to know if there is more between them than just attraction.
