My Review

After the death of her brother, Nadia Shelton assumes the CEO job of their family's hotel.  When she is pushed in front of a taxi and almost killed, she fears that someone is after her.  She has no idea why but when someone comes looking for her dead brother, she can’t help but wonder what he got himself into.

Ryan West is in charge of the security at the hotel and he immediately puts himself in charge of the safety of the CEO.  It doesn’t take long before Ryan and Nadia are drawn closer to each other as they go on the run from killers.  

This is romantic suspense at its finest.  It is an action-packed drama.  From page one, the adventure took off and never stopped.  

The sparks more than fly between Nadia and Ryan.  The chemistry between this couple is apparent from the beginning.  The characters come to life on each page.  I fell in love with them from the beginning.  

I never read K.D. Richards’ books before, but I will from now on.  I’ve quickly become a fan with this book.
