A cold case leads to blazing-hot temptation in this novel of romantic suspense from bestselling author Kathy Clark. For readers of Nora Roberts and Karen Robards, Almost Forever pairs a rugged lawman with a woman who may just be a murderer.
Justin Archer is a Texas Ranger through and through, a loyal man devoted to the dangerous job he loves. But when the grisly discovery of a skeleton in a local vineyard turns an old missing-persons case into a vicious homicide, Justin finds that the toughest challenge of his professional career will be keeping his hands off his chief suspect: the dead man’s beautiful, young trophy wife. Did Lori Roberts kill for vast material gain? The only thing Justin knows for sure is that their chemistry is instantaneous—and overpowering.
Lori worked hard to build a new life for herself and her daughter. She turned her husband’s struggling vineyard into a thriving enterprise, and now she stands to lose it all over something that happened eight years ago. Justin could lock her up and throw away the key, but Lori desperately wants to trust him. More than that, she wants to let him into her wounded heart. Because Lori’s been running from the past for a long time . . . and she’s ready to start living for the future.
Sizzling chemistry, light-hearted, and suspenseful!
This is the second book in the Austin Heroes series, and this time we are off to solve an eight-year-old murder with a ruggedly handsome Texas Ranger.
The characterization is well done, with main characters that are attractive, complex, and interesting, and a whole mixed bag of supporting characters that are unique, likeable, and fun. While the plot is full of drama, secrets, deception, twists and turn, and romance that will captivate you until the very end.
This is an enjoyable read, and I look forward to reading about the third brother, Luke, when the next novel in the series is published.
This book is due to be published on July 26, 2016.
