First off I want to thank Harlequin Intrigue for inviting me to read and review this book, because so far they've never let me down when it comes to their Suspense romance , and every time I pick up one of their books I tend to get lost in their stories as well as in their characters . And the same can be said about this one. Right from the start the story the story had me hooked and the characters themselves became some of my all time favorite ones. I loved how close Eli and his family was , how they was there for each others back when ever they needed help. As for Ashlyn herself I loved how she was strong and would do anything to keep her daughter safe, and how she came to realize that it wasn't Eli fault that her best friend was killed . As for the story itself here is what I loved about how it was an intense, fast-paced read that grabbed my attention from the very first page and didn't let go until the end. There was plenty of drama, action, and suspense to keep me on the edge of my seat, and after reading it I realized that I wanted to read more books by this author .

Excerpt, SETTLING AN OLD SCORE by Delores Fossen
Ashlyn knew it would take more luck to pin Dominick down on that. Especially if he had in-deed
hired those gunmen.
As soon as Kellan walked out, Eli took hold of her hand and moved her out of the doorway. Out
of view from the windows, too. She hadn’t needed a reminder of the danger, but that gave her one any-
“There are too many puzzle pieces,” she said. “In the meantime, you and I—maybe Cora,
too—are in the crosshairs of a killer.”
He didn’t argue with her. Couldn’t. Because it was true, a frustration that they both felt. That
frustration was in every muscle of his body when he pulled her into his arms. As he’d done in the
kitchen, he brushed a kiss on the top of her head. A kiss of comfort.
And it worked.
Ashlyn could practically feel some of the tension slide right out of her. Of course, the heat came
in its place. No surprise there. She’d been dealing with it for much too long.
He pulled back just a little and looked down at her with those smoky gray eyes. They weren’t
stormy now but had some of the same fire that she was certain was in her own.
“Yeah,” he said as if he’d known exactly what she was thinking—and feeling. “If we were still in
high school, I would just coax you into taking a trip out to my truck. That won’t work this time, though.”
“No.” Since he could be dangerous. And also since sex should be the last thing on their minds.
But Ashlyn wanted to make this moment a little lighter than spelling out those reminders. “Because
we’re sensible adults now.”
The corner of his mouth lifted, causing a dimple to flash in his cheek. Yes, a dimple. It was
another weapon in the arsenal of Eli Slater, hot cowboy. But the smile didn’t last long.
“Soon, we’re going to have a brief talk about this,” Eli drawled, his voice all smoke and heat.
“And then we’ll deal with it. I’ve got some ideas as to how we can do that.”
Now she smiled, and even though she figured it was a mistake, Ashlyn brushed her mouth over
his. Again, not a full-fledged kiss, but it could have qualified as foreplay. Short foreplay.
