Line: Harlequin Intrigue

Release month: January

The S-Factor: Scary and Sensuous


Her lips were sealed until the long arm of the law cracked them wide open.

What was supposed to be a quiet vacation in scenic Wyoming turned deadly when Hannah Cooper became the target of a serial killer. Although she survived the attack, the ordeal was far from over. But she wasn’t alone. Not when Riley Patterson appointed himself her protector.

Beneath Riley’s strapping, solemn exterior hid a hard-driving sheriff who would stop at nothing to catch a killer. He promised Hannah safety, but it was the danger he posed that drew her in. Riley was as much a mystery as the man who sought to take her life. Trapped on his ranch, with no one but each other to trust, only justice could set them free. . .and possibly separate them forever.

Cooper Justice. One family determined to do what’s right.

Review: ♥♥♥♥♥

Hannah Cooper was on vacation. She’d gone to Wyoming to do a little fishing with her friends. . . (and maybe get away from her six brothers for a bit?) So why would someone try to kill her? What advice from her brother does she make use of to get away from the killer?

If she wasn’t even attacked in his district, why was Riley called when the facts of Hannah’s attack became known? Why was he so interested in what Hannah had been through? Who was Jack? And why was his opinion so important to Riley?

Here we have a hero and heroine who have real human faults, yet they also have common sense, and they use their common sense to help them find the solution to the horrifying set of incidents that happen to Hannah with increasing regularity.

Paula Graves’ expertise in writing intrigue is second to none. From the first page to the last the story unfolded with one heart-stopping, dramatic, occurrence after another. Not only does Paula write excellent intrigue, she also has some top notch advice for women who travel alone.

This is the first book in her miniseries Cooper Justice. The second book is also already out, entitled Chickasaw County Captive. If you love Case File: Canyon Creek, Wyoming, then you will surely also love Chickasaw County Captive.
