JUSTICE BURNING (Hellfire, Texas #2)
Her groom was a no-show at her wedding, and Dallas debutante Phoebe Sinclair isn’t going to face her family and the hundreds of guests with the news. Taking nothing but her wedding dress, her grandmother’s locket and her fiancé’s rented convertible, she leaves the church, determined to get away and start a new life free of her society status. Foiled by a flat tire near Hellfire, Texas, she opens the trunk for the jack, only to discover a dead groom, just as a sheriff’s deputy pulls up behind her.
When sheriff’s deputy Nash Grayson, lends a helping hand to a runaway bride, he doesn’t know half of what he’s getting himself into. Not only is she sassy and independent, she’s beautiful, sexy and wriggles her way past the protective wall he’s built around himself since he returned from the war. When she’s targeted by a shooter, he’s assigned protective duty until the culprit can be caught. Close quarters and hot Texas nights bring the unlikely pair closer to the truth about the dead fiance and their own burgeoning desires.
Phoebe Sinclair is not wanting to get married, but when she is told by the best man that the groom is nowhere to be found she panics and bolts from the church using the car that they were going to use for their honeymoon. Now hours away and who knows where the tire blows out. Upon opening the trunk she finds no spare tire. Leaving she drives into a fence post and is now stuck. Deputy Nash Grayson discovers her predicament and proceeds to help her. She ends up finding a place to stay and a job. She does not want to go back to Dallas, the people of this small town have taken a liken to her, and her to them and the deputy. Now I left out a mystery, suspense, and two men that are looking for her and want to do her harm, but I don’t want to give away the story. This is a very good story and gets everything done quickly but the author makes it work. I also like the characters. Overall a good book. I got this book from netgalley. I gave it 4 stars.
