The New York Times bestselling author of the Marked Men series delivers a romance about a rugged Texas sheriff who must protect the woman who was once his sworn enemy…
Case Lawton comes from a family of criminals. So as the sheriff of Loveless, Texas, he’s determined to do everything by the book–until he’s called to Aspen Barlow’s office after a so-called break-in. The last thing he wants to do is help the woman who cost him custody of his son. But Aspen isn’t the heartless lawyer Case remembers, and he starts to question his long-held grudge…
Aspen is scared for her life, and Case is her last hope for protection. But to get him on her side, she’ll have to reveal the painful truth from all those years ago. Now, as they work together to track down a dangerous criminal, Case and Aspen learn to trust each other. And as the threats escalate, it becomes clear there’s a thin line between love and hate… because there’s nothing Case wouldn’t do to keep her safe.
Twisty, suspenseful, and deliciously steamy!
Justified is a seductive, intense whodunit that takes us to Loveless, Texas where the easy-going, rugged, Sheriff Lawton is struggling to protect the lawyer who took his son from a killer determined to end her life, and the headstrong, intelligent Aspen Barlow is determined to keep her wits around the teen crush who feels nothing but animosity towards her.
The writing is crisp and sharp. The characters are multilayered, stubborn, and honourable. And the plot is a passionate, rousing tale filled with twists, turns, familial drama, red herrings, secrets, lies, mayhem, danger, sizzling attraction, and swoon-worthy romance.
Overall, Justified is a sultry, action-packed, wonderful addition to the Loveless, Texas series by Crownover that keeps you on your toes from start to finish, warms the heart, and definitely leaves you yearning for more.
