Can Danger Bond Two Broken Hearts?
Keeso Smith is not what he seems. The tall, muscular cowboy is more than the good-looking owner/operator of a Colorado gold mine.
He’s an alien.
Born and raised on Centallus, Keeso is one of a small group who survived the destruction of their home world. Now, he is stranded on Earth in Connor, Colorado.
Emma Kent and her four-year-old nephew, Levi, are running from the FBI and the man who murdered Levi’s parents. Fleeing a compromised safe house in St. Louis, Missouri the two find themselves in a Connor, Colorado convenience store—with a help wanted sign in the window. The job comes with an adjoining apartment, and Connor, Colorado is about as far from discovery as a town can get.
From the moment Emma falls into Keeso’s arms, he is intrigued by her beauty and by the fear in her eyes. His attraction to her is undeniable, but it’s his concern for her welfare that drives him to return to the store, even in the middle of the night, to make sure she and her nephew are safe.
After an attempt is made on her life Keeso vows to protect her—a vow he considers a lifetime commitment—one she is unwilling to accept. But she cannot ignore the connection she feels to this good man, and she longs for what can never be.
The killer pursues them from Colorado to Arizona and the sanctuary of the Hopi Reservation and the protection of its people.
But they can’t hide forever.
