very good story line and excitement. I had no clue
where that stupid key was. Love and adventure
from beginning to end. this was a romance suspense
and kept me reading.

Have a mother in law that was avid reader of all the Harlequin books so got them passed to me so have read all the early stuff by this company. Emily is kidnapped and Bud wants to seem to stay in her life which is personal since he couldnt keep his promise.
When Private Investigator Bud MacPhearson got a message from Keith Christiani, he knew it was urgent. Keith said if anything happened to him, Mac had to get his daughter-in-law, Mallory, and his granddaughter, Emily, to safety. Now he has found Keith in the hospital, unable to communicate after a massive stroke. Mac also tracks down Mallory who is frantic because Emily has disappeared. Mac and Mallory receive a call from the kidnapper. They have to play by the kidnapper's rules. No police or the little girl is dead. They have to find the package that Keith hid and turn it over to the kidnappers or Mallory will never see her little girl again.
This was a very good category romance with an excellent suspense plot. Not only does Mac and Mallory have to find the package and get it to the kidnapper, they also have to avoid the three men who are trying to kill both of them. The romance portion of the story was not so good. Mac continually believing he was not good enough for Mallory got old very fast. So, I knocked off a full point for the lame romance story, but absolutely loved the suspense story. My rating: 4 Stars.
