Jane Day is on the run from the paid assassin who had been her fiancé. In Wichita Falls, Texas, she meets Nellie Luckadeau, a spitfire of an old lady who desperately needs someone to work on her ranch. But Nellie's drop-dead gorgeous grandson "Lucky Slade" is sure he can spot a con artist a mile away. He's determined not to let some upstart like Jane fleece his granny.
When his signature intimidation methods don't convince Jane to leave, he pours on the charm to make her spill what she's up to. She's happy to play along, but she's not going to let this hot, hostile cowboy run her off his land when all she needs is a lucky break…
This story is wholly unbelievable but very enjoyable and entertaining. On the eve of her wedding, Jane Day discovers awful information that sends he on a run for her life. She's been betrayed in the worst way but she keeps her head and runs for her life. Knowing the resources available to those out to get her, she thinks it best to lay low and focus on surviving. But Slade is no fool. He knows Jane isn't who she seems and will do anything to protect his family from her. However, as these things sometimes go, Slade just can't stay away from Jane and vice versa.
This one made a nice read for one of those days where you just want to sit back and enjoy without much thinking. I thought the plot was interesting and fun though the last few chapters took me by the surprise and got a bit more outlandish than I expected. I thought Slade and Jane's relationship was believable with the right kind of romance and Nellie and her friends were a hoot. I liked them and found they added to the story. Overall, I'd recommend this for the right kind of reading mood.
