Love In The First Degree

Laura Reynolds has risen far from that falling down old trailer on the wrong side of the tracts in Sebida, Texas. At thirty-eight, she has achieved her career goals as General Counsel for McBride Industries. So, why isn’t it enough? Why this sudden need to follow some biological imperative to reproduce?

Ryan Ranger has overcome those childhood taunts. As a SEAL he has seen more of this world than most people ever will. And his new job with the agency is fulfilling. Or it was until he watched his cousin with his new mate. But Ryan accepted long ago that kind of love was not for someone like him. Until he opened the pages of her file, the woman he is being sent to replace. This woman sets off something in his ‘golden gut.’

Nine months later, the case against McBride is haunted by deaths of key witnesses and missing evidence. The only chance of salvaging it is new evidence. Is there something they overlooked? Could she be the key? But when Ryan Ranger shows up on Laura Reynolds doorstep in, of all places, Sebida, Texas, he is in for the shock of his life.
