Review of RANDALL ON THE RUN by Judy Christenberry
Harlequin Intrigue #887, December 2005
Jessica Randall is ready to leave Hollywood, having proven to herself that she had a true talent, that she could make it in the rough world of acting, and also that she wanted the life of Rawhide, Wyoming rather than that of California. As she leaves her apartment for the last time, she almost runs into a gunfight. The sexy injured man on the side of the road claims that he'd be killed if Jess took him to a hospital, but Jess knows one place he's sure to be safe--Rawhide, in the protection of the Randall clan. Of course, there is the small matter of protecting her heart from him.
Steve Carter enjoyed being a Drug Enforcement Agency (DEA) undercover agent. His drug-addicted mother taught him everything he needs to know about drugs. But now he's fleeing from members of his own organization--men who will kill to protect their betrayal of the DEA. Steve wouldn't mind the danger so much if it didn't put Jess in danger as well.
Jess has put the big city behind her, is ready to return to small-town America. She knows she has no future with an agent whose career is in L.A. Still, doesn't she deserve at least a few days of pleasure? When she realizes her acting skills just might be the one thing that can save Steve's life, nothing can stop her, even though she knows there can be no happily ever after for the two of them.
Author Judy Christenberry (see more BooksForABuck.com reviews of novels by Christenberry) continues her fan-favorite Randall series with a story that combines romance with action and danger. Jess carries the strength of her rural-American upbringing with her in both L.A. and Washington D.C. as she fights to save the man she loves. Steve is an appropriately sexy hunk, with the Christenberry hero's trademark protectiveness, strength, and love for steak. Just a touch of humor finishes off this fun fast read.
