Y’all know how much I love the Coltons! Now we a different set of them with all new mysteries to figure out. Riley Colton is an ex-FBI agent who is now a PI with his siblings. While working a new case he comes face to face with Charlize who he had a one night stand with. She fell in love with Riley right away but he walked away after their one night never to be heard from.

Three months after their one night stand Charlize is walking home when she is attacked. As a social worker she has plenty of people who would want to hurt her. Riley is going to have to protect her and their unborn child that their one night created. On top of that he is trying to figure out who Capital X is and what they want with his foster brother, Brody.

As with the previous Colton series we are left with the mystery of who is Capital X and if Brody is alright. Also these are Harlequins so they can be a little tame at moments. There are things that happen in Harlequins that I swear other authors would have knifed a hero for at times. Like Riley is a real jerk for a good portion of the book then it gets works out rather quickly. That is just the way it happens in these books sometimes.

As always this is a great story and I will be checking out the rest of the series to figure out the mystery of it all.

About Tara Taylor Quinn

Tara Taylor Quinn began her love affair with Harlequin when she was fourteen years old and picked up a free promotional copy of a Harlequin Romance in a hometown grocery store. The relationship was solidified the year she was suspended from her high school typing class for hiding a Harlequin Romance behind the keys of her electric typewriter. Unaware that her instructor loomed close by, Ms. Quinn read blissfully on with one finger resting on the automatic repeating period key. She finished the book in the principal’s office. Forced to leave her romances in her locker after that, Ms. Quinn’s typing skills improved – a fact for which she is eternally grateful.

With over 80 original novels, published in more than twenty languages, Tara Taylor Quinn is a USA Today bestselling author with more than seven million copies sold. She is a winner of the 2008 National Reader’s Choice Award, four time finalist for the RWA Rita Award, a finalist for the Reviewer’s Choice Award, the Bookseller’s Best Award, the Holt Medallion and appears regularly on the Waldenbooks bestsellers list. Ms. Quinn writes for Harlequin and MIRA Books. Reviewer, Cindy Penn, says, “Amazing character development is the hallmark of author Tara Taylor Quinn’s work. Indeed, Taylor’s profound observations of human nature and intimate understanding of values and priorities lends extraordinary psychological depth to all her work.”

Tara Taylor Quinn was born and raised in Ohio. Though she wrote her first story at the age of seven, her professional writing career began ten years later when she was hired as a stringer with the Dayton Daily News in Dayton, Ohio. She attended Wright State University and graduated from Harding College in Arkansas with a degree in English and Journalism. She published several magazine articles before turning to writing as a full-time occupation.

Ms. Quinn is a Past President of the Romance Writers of America and served for eight years on the Board of Directors of that association. She has a wide range of experience as a public speaker and workshop presenter for writers groups around the country.

When she’s not home with her owners, Jerry Lee and Taylor Marie, or fulfilling speaking engagements, Tara loves to travel with her husband, stopping wherever the spirit takes them. They’ve been spotted in casinos and quaint little small town antique shops all across the country.
