Enhance your purchase
Widow Danae Sutherland moved to Crimson Point a month ago with her teenage son to begin a new chapter in their lives. Adjusting to small town life is a big change for them both, but it’s been especially hard on her son, and the holidays are making it even harder. When a sexy stranger moves into the cottage next door, she’s not prepared for the undeniable attraction between them. He’s only in town for a couple weeks, so getting involved will only lead to heartbreak. That doesn’t stop her from falling for him. And when danger strikes, she has no choice but to put her life in his hands.
He’s the only man who can save her.
Former Marine Ryder Locke has come to the Oregon Coast to spend the holidays with his cousin Molly and her family. It’s his chance to face his demons head on before returning to his job as a bodyguard for one of Hollywood’s brightest stars. The last thing he expects is to fall for the single mom next door, and for danger to blow up around her. When the threat closes in and her life hangs in the balance, Ryder must risk everything to save her from the man who wants her dead.

Ryder's a tortured but valiant ex-Marine and Danae is a struggling and still grieving single mom of a teenaged boy. Right there we have drama, then add in organized crime and high risk for the MCs and you've got nail biting situations and downright dread for these two lovers. You can't help but want them to find happiness with each other. They so deserve it. But trust me when I say Crimson Point has always been an unlikely place to find peace and contentment. I always wonder why anyone would want to settle there, were it not for the other Crimson Point characters providing love, solidarity, and much needed support. I love that Ms. Cross includes all of them so generously in all of the books in this series because you'll want to follow them as much as the MCs in any of these stories.
If you like romantic suspense these are pretty good ones. Crimson Point's version of Christmas isn't quite like yours or mine, but there will always be gifts in the end.
Danae Sutherland moved to Crimson Point to get away from memories of her late husband. Although her son Finn wasn't happy leaving his friends. Now she's dealing with him holing up in his room playing games online with those friends. Only today he's going to go out with someone from school, and take a bus. Something he never did in Seattle.
Ironically it's this interaction with Paul and others from his school that leads to the problems we see in this book.
Ryder first meets Finn, then Danae at the coffee shop run by Poppy, the sheriff's wife. He knew he'd meet all these people through Molly, he just didn't realize they already sort of knew him. Danae lives in the cottage next to his and she gives him a ride back.
I think one my favorite interactions with Ryder, Danae and Finn is when Danae is outside alone putting up Christmas Decorations. Ryder not only offers to help but insists on Finn helping too.
The putting up of the decorations, followed by dinner cements the beginning of a relationship with Danae and her son.
Of course none of this is going to be easy as it becomes apparent the boys Finn has more or less been coerced to hang with, are doing things illegal.
I found myself biting my nails as this story unfolds. We get to see everyone from the previous books and there's an interesting interaction between a woman and the reclusive Boyd at the coffee shop as well.
Plenty of action, suspense, laughter, tears and just the right amount of sizzle. I can't wait for the next book in this series.
Danae and Finn are just the coolest mom and son in Crimson Point. The fact that Ryder was renting the cottage next door from them was convenient and apropos.
Ryder is really the best kind of bodyguard because he is so cognizant and attentive...clearly want him on your side in a struggle!
Watching Ryder and Danae grow close as this story unfolds is what makes it a page turner.
The novel stands alone, but knowledge of the Crimson Point inhabitants is helpful.
This story is full of love, suspense, action and excitement. Another must read Kaylea Cross book. Kaylea is a master story teller and she has already set the scene for her next book in the series, Dangerous Survivor, which will be an instant buy from me.

And with a cracking storyline that had me hooked from beginning to end this was a brilliant return to one of my favourite Kaylea Cross series, and I'm so happy there is more to come.
Would happily recommend.
