I read anything and everything
This really shouldn't be an "Intrigue", more "Romantic Suspense". Most of the book was about Dawson, Melanie and the baby Mason. There was a crazy killer after Melanie, of course, but the Intrigue was not a very large part of the book except at the very end. As Romantic Suspense, I might have liked it better.
Here's the blurb:
A Texas bodyguard never thought he'd see Melanie Dixon again—or learn he was the father of her little boy…
A shotgun blast shatters the night and Dawson Hill foils a ruthless stalker. Now the fearless bodyguard is committed to protecting Melanie Dixon—the alluring woman who left him two years ago without a word. Not only is he surprised she's back in Mason Ridge, Dawson is doubly stunned to learn they have a son.
Now the three of them are on the run, and Dawson is determined to protect the baby boy he never knew he could love so much. With his passion for Melanie reigniting like Texas wildfire even as he struggles to forgive her deception, a madman closes in. A madman who threatens the family Dawson never dreamed would be within reach."
