Series: A Trust No One Novel bk 2
Author: Dixie Lee Brown
Genre: Romantic Suspense
As a former Marine, Walker could find a needle in a haystack. But when he’s asked by the U.S. Marshals to track down a nanny fleeing from the mafia, he’s sure she’ll be more trouble than she’s worth. Especially after the sexy little thing clubs him and leaves him for dead. Walker’s stunned by her courage—and her curves—and can’t help feeling drawn to this damsel trying to dig her way out of distress. He’ll find her, and when he does, it’ll take more than the mafia to tear him away.
Darcy Maddox never expected to be running for her life. But when it suddenly looks like foe may become friend, Darcy’s faced with a choice: Go it alone or trust a man she just met—never mind the way his touch gets her heart pounding. The choice seems simple enough until she realizes it’s not just her life at stake—it’s her heart.
Darcy never thought being a nanny would lead to her running for her life. She’s running for her life after witnessing the apparent murder of her employer, Johnny Fontana, who happens to work for the mob. The hit has been put out by Frank DeLuca, the head of the infamous mafia family that he works for.
Darcy Maddox realizes that her safety may lie in the hands of her father, a retired Chief of Police in Oregon. Unfortunately as she makes her way home she is kidnapped by a man who in all appearances was someone she felt she could trust but you know the saying “looks can be deceiving”.
Enter Walker, a former marine, who the U.S. Marshall’s office has hired to find Darcy and keep her safe. Walker, who has been fighting demons from his past for awhile, felt this was just a mundane babysitting job in which he sees Darcy as a “helpless woman” but his opinion soon changes when she out smarts him when he intercepts her.
Darcy doesn’t know who to trust any more much less who will protect her and in all appearances Walker appears to be anything but a rescuer that’s until he saves her from a series of haphazard events. As he proves to be an ally, she allows him to take her to a safe house where they start to realize that there is something building between them.
