Author: Regan Black

Mills & Boon imprint: Romantic Suspense

Year of publication: 2017

The heroine: Jennings Construction employee Shannon Nolan

The hero: Firefighter/Jennings Construction manager Daniel Jennings

The blurb: After escaping a world of ruthless crime, Shannon Nolan finally thought she’d left her nightmares in the past. Then the worst thing she could imagine happens: her son is kidnapped! With nowhere else to run and no one else to trust but her boss, she puts her life in Daniel Jennings’ hands.

Firefighter Daniel knows Shannon is safe under his protection, but the one threat he doesn’t want to face is his growing passion for her. But as they put everything on the line to rescue her son, that very connection might just be what saves them all…

Standalone or series: Part of the Escape Club Heroes series, but can be read as a standalone.

The review: Shannon Nolan has been attracted to her boss for a long time, but having come out of a violent marriage and fleeing NYC to get away from her domineering ex-husband with mob connections, she’s afraid to trust another man. She also didn’t tell the ex she was pregnant, and when he finds out there’s a child involved, he’s determined to get revenge.

Daniel was planning on asking Shannon on a date, but the day he finally works up the courage to do so Shannon’s four-year-old son, Aiden, is kidnapped from his babysitter’s house. Thanks to Daniel’s connections, Shannon has help in trying to find her son and she has to trust Daniel and his friends to bring Aiden home safely.

The ex turns out to be a nutcase who was led to believe Shannon cheated on him, resulting in her pregnancy, and he kidnaps the boy to exact revenge. Aiden is safely brought home and he quickly becomes attached to Daniel, as does Shannon. Daniel realises he’s ready to settle down and wants to be a husband and father, and his wish is granted.

I liked the romance between Daniel and Shannon. I’m glad the kidnapping wasn’t drawn out for the entire book. Shannon was tempted many times to take Aiden and run, but I’m glad she didn’t. Daniel is a good guy who made them happy 🙂
