Liz’s car breaks down, then she lands in the middle of a drug sting.  Greg saves her life and is immediately attracted to her.  Trying to start a relationship in the middle of finding drug dealers and protecting Liz keeps both off kilter.

The Marshal’s Woman was a fast read that throws readers right into the middle of a life and death struggle.  Besides being in the wrong place at the wrong time, Liz is mistaken for someone else.  Several ugly truths are also uncovered in the law enforcement arena.

Both Liz and Greg act on their attraction, but Liz wants to slow things down, even as Greg is ready to forge ahead to make things permanent.  The chemistry between the two was hot and most of this story revolves around Liz and Greg.  I wasn’t too happy with the way things unfolded so quickly.  Because of Greg’s job, how quickly their relationship developed almost seemed unrealistic, especially due to the circumstances.  Several other situations in the story are very realistic however.  

The author did some research regarding both the law enforcement side and the drug dealers to get those bits right.  Readers can expect lots of action in this story.
