by Kimberly Krey
Published July 12, 2013
Twenty-four-year-old Cassie Lovell has a great job, good friends, and an apartment with a killer view. That is, until life is turned upside down. Without the chance to say goodbye, Cassie is forced into a witness protection program on Emerson Ranch. Just when she fears life is doomed, Cassie meets Shane Emerson, the stunningly handsome cowboy who’ll be posing as her newlywed groom.
Shane Emerson is determined not to fall for the woman he’s agreed to harbor. Especially since the whole thing was his family’s way of trying to get him hitched. So why is it when he takes Cassie into his home, Shane wants nothing more than to turn their make-believe marriage into more than just a sham?
In a moment of weakness, Shane steals a kiss.
In return, Cassie steals his heart.
Yet before they confess their undying love,
a hidden danger threatens to tear them apart.
*Although this novel is considered clean romance, it does contain passionate kissing and a few mild curse words.
The delights of Romantic Tension!

– After learning about Cassie’s story I wanted to adopt her as my own sister and give her the life she always wanted but never had.
Chef John’s Easy Apple Pie
Cassie gulped down the lump forming in her throat. She couldn’t remember disliking a person so much in all her life.

Even amid the desire, Shane’s main focus was on getting to know her heart because he intended this to be forever. That melted my heart more than any steamy kiss they shared.

“I got it,” Shane offered, coming up from behind. He was quick to move, and none too subtle as he nudged up against her, reaching high overhead to open the cupboard. “

21 – BookwormLisa – Review
I was pulled into the book from the beginning. There are kissing scenes, but the book doesn’t go farther than the kiss. This is the kind of romance book that I really enjoy. Sweet with a bit of spice that doesn’t make me blush!

“One of my favorite Movie Kisses would have to be from A Walk In The Clouds…”
Cassie’s Cowboy Crave was a fantastic diversion. I loved it…. A perfect way to spend a few hours by the pool while your kids swim. 🙂 (yes, that’s exactly how it went for me)

“A kiss goodbye?” The laughing stopped, and he could swear Cassie’s gaze had landed solidly on his mouth. Shane moistened his lips, suddenly hungry for a taste of hers… He had to get out of there. And fast.
Top Ten Things That Make a Great Romance Novel
I want to get a good grip on the attraction right away. Even if there’s a bit of a love-hate thing going on, I like knowing there’s something brewing, an undeniable attraction no matter how maddening the opposite is.
– The Wonderings of One Person – Inteview!
It was actually Shane who came to me first, and I loved his story: Two older brothers who’d met their wives through this witness protection thing – I loved the expectations that came along with it, and knew I needed to write his story.
I also loved the setting on the ranch. The horses and hard labor, the group meals and gatherings, the camaraderie and the way Shane’s family adopts everyone who works there or marries into the family.
I loved the times when Cassie and Shane went off on walks, rides, or on a picnic. Just the simple things they did to develop their friendship.
26 – What’s Beyond Forks?
This was an addictive little story. I stayed up into the wee hours of the morning reading this book.
I just couldn’t put it down.
I’m a writer of contemporary clean romance, a lover of home, family, & friends, & the ultimate hater of laundry.
A few of my favorite things: Diet Coke, Cafe Rio, and novels by Marcia Lynn McClure.
