About the Book
He’s not looking for trouble…
Montana rancher Knox Marshall’s danger years are behind him. A former bull-rider, he now runs the Marshall family ranch, raising champion bucking bulls for the National Professional Bullrider’s Expo (NBR-X). Wealth and success are his, but life is stable, expected, and…ordinary. But he wants more from life…
But trouble is looking for her…
Kelsey Jones just wants a safe life, a family, a home. Onstage, the beautiful rising star of the Yankee Belles becomes the person she longs to be – vivacious and confident – burying the brokenness she carries from a violent assault. Becoming NBR-X’s next country act is key to outrunning her past and achieving the success and security she craves.
When trouble finds them both…
Knox and Kelsey’s paths collide when an explosion at an NBR-X event traps them in the rubble and leaves them reeling. Kelsey’s crippling nightmares return, but for Knox, an obsession to find the bomber is ignited.
What will it cost him to protect her?
When Kelsey’s past threatens Knox’s family, he’ll have to choose between saving the Marshall legacy or becoming the protector he’s always longed to be.
The explosive first book in the Montana Marshalls series!

Susan May Warren has written a fun and fast paced cowboy romantic suspense novel that readers will immediately be drawn to. The story comes to life from the pages as the lives of cowboy Knox Marshall and stage performer Kelsey Jones unfold. This novel is about the past coming to catch up with the present and the complications it causes. It’s about developing a friendship that turns into an unexpected romance. The romance in the story seems to go a little bit fast and it seems to focus a bit more on some of the minor characters who will be getting their own story in the next novel in the series, rather than focusing on the story of Knox and Kelsey. Overall, Warren has written a story with a cliffhanger that readers will enjoy and thrill over as they anticipate the next book in the series.
