Delores Fossen kicks off her new series, Sweetwater Ranch, with a Texas lawman, a beautiful district attorney…and the child they'll risk everything to protect.
Saving a little boy's life reopens painful wounds for Texas sheriff Cooper McKinnon. This could be his son, whose loss has haunted him for two years. But Cooper has a formidable adversary in Jessa Wells. She's the adoptive mother—and she'll do anything to hold on to Liam.
It's cruel justice that the man who shares Liam's rare blood type has an unsolved murder in his own family. And the danger's far from over. Fighting her desire for Cooper, Jessa has no choice but to join forces with the maverick cowboy. Jessa knows working together is their best shot at keeping the child safe. But it's the possibility of a future alone that breaks Jessa's heart.

I have always enjoyed the Harlequin Intrigue books. What could be better than a mystery filled with suspense and romance! This fast-paced novel has more than one mystery to solve, but only one is resolved in book 1 of this new series, Sweetwater Ranch, by Delores Fossen. I look forward to reading more about the McKinnon family and its other mysteries hinted at in Maverick Sheriff. This series will have 8 books total. Book 2, Cowboy Behind the Badge, is expected to be released October 2013. I know what I’ll be reading in October! What about you?

I received a complimentary e-copy of Maverick Sheriff for my honest review from NetGalley and Harlequin Intrigue.
