In seconds everything can change.....

One second Laurel Hodges (aka Vivian Stewart) was starting to feel secure in her home of two years, and the next, everything changed. News had spread faster than a wildfire through the small, out of the way town of Pineview, Montana of the murder of one of their own. Pat Stueben, a local realtor, had been found murdered in a rental cabin. The second she heard the news Laurel feared the past had finally caught up with her. For four years, she and her children had been in hiding. They had spent the first two years in WitSec, the witness protection program. Two years ago, a breach in the program led to the death of the Federal agent hired to protect her. That was when Laurel, her brother, and Rex left the program going their separate ways to try their luck on their own, knowing WitSec could no longer guarantee their safety. She'd put her life on hold for four years, and she was tired of running....

This is the first book I've read of Novak's, but it won't be the last. I didn't have to get to far into the story before I knew I'd be buying plenty of her books. I loved the way Laurel had tried to distance herself from her sexy neighbor, Myles, the local sheriff.  I loved the feelings of want and desire displayed yet denied by each. I loved the moment which led up to the couple finally giving into those desires and the moment they realized their feelings ran deeper than either would first admit. It was one of the best love build ups (for lack of a better term) I've read. *sigh* I just love good romance. While this has romance, it is not the only element that I loved in the story. The drama created by the members of the gang who have come looking for Laurel had me hooked from the start, and the bad guys sent shivers running up and down my spine.

I didn't read the first book in this series, but I didn't feel lost. Enough background information was given that I could get right into the story. So if you're looking for a suspenseful romance you may just want to pick this one up. I gave this one 4 out of 5 roses.

Order of series:

1. Inside
2. In Seconds
3. In Close coming October 25, 2011
