Ryder Palladin is a rancher and police detective. When Ryder and his partner find a woman beaten in an alley, he makes it his job to protect her. Turns out that the woman is Emma Langston, and she is a private investigator, but when she wakes up she doesn't remember anything.
Emma isn't a good patient, she is anxious to get back to work, even though she doesn't know what she was working on. Ryder brings her to stay with his family on the ranch, while they work together to get to the bottom of the case, and find out who is after Emma.
Emma and Ryder make a great team, and they are actually a lot alike, both are very driven workaholics who avoid relationships. Ryder's mother and sister, welcome Emma immediately, and his dog is instantly devoted to her.
Ryder is one of the god guys, and he's a cowboy to boot! He's a diligent crusader for justice, and he won't give up until the job is done. He admires Emma's tenacity, but he worries how to keep her safe.
Emma remembers her faith, even when she doesn't remember a whole lot else. She is a smart, independent woman. She's used to working alone, but she has to admit that it's nice to have Ryder around.
Fast paced and full of surprises, great interaction and fantastic characters. It was hard to put down, and had a great ending.
