She’s a ballerina with a dark secret. He’s a retired sniper with a tortured past. Will they find love or fall prey to a stalker’s deadly game?

Professional ballerina Jessie Hilton wraps her battle scars in satin pointe shoes, but there’s a deeper hurt that haunts her sleep. When a handsome man steps in to save her from a mugging, something about her hero makes her heavy heart leap. Though her career can’t afford distractions, he may be her sole source of safety when she gains the unwanted attention of a relentless stalker.

With his faithful border collie Whiskey by his side, Brad gets a second chance when he protects the beautiful Jessie from danger. When the ballerina’s stalker grows more brazen, Brad’s tactical training may be their only weapon against tragedy.

Laurie’s Thoughts & Reviews – 5 Stars

I really, really liked this book. The story was entertaining, but the characters absolutely made the novel engrossing. Also, I was particularly enamored with the Australian setting; especially with the country scenes, I felt like I was there.
This is a clean romance which I appreciated. Jessie and BJ are honorable, decent people trying to overcome horrors from their pasts. They have stalwart friends who support them and who are supported in return. I also loved Whiskey, BJ’s pet companion. The love BJ has for Whiskey is woven intrinsically throughout every chapter. I highly recommend this suspenseful tale.

Amazon 5 Stars

Jessie is hoping to become a prima ballerina but she has issues from her past. BJ is a former soldier who has suffered great loss. When they meet at a yoga class they become great support to one another but when Jessie gets a stalker what will BJ do to keep her safe. This story had a great deal of twists and turns and getting the stalkers POV gave it a spooky feel. Overall a great book that keeps you enthralled to the final page.

Amazon 5 Stars

This was a very good book. Fast paced, lots of suspense and surprising twists in the plot. The story was also gripping and emotional in parts.
