Safety Breach (Longview Ridge Ranch) by Delores Fossen
On the opposite end of the spectrum we have this thriller that delivers fast-paced action, danger and twists with every turn of the page—and still manages to find room in the story for a tension-building, hot romance.
In the first of this series, we meet Sheriff Kellan Slater and Gemma Hanson as they try to outsmart a serial killer that seems to be only steps away.
Evidence of Attraction (Bachelor Bodyguards) by Lisa Childs

The problem is that evidence technicians are used to investigating crimes—not becoming a killer’s next target.
