About the Book

From New York Times and USA Today Best Selling Author comes a story of a cop, an antique Cadillac, and a bride on the run from her mob fiancé. What could possibly go wrong?

Relocating from Chicago to Texas, cop Shade Gruber agrees to drive his grandmother’s prize car to his new home in Diamond Lakes. He expects some car issues. He doesn’t expect to pick up a runaway bride.

Bride Victoria Vaught dashes from the church thirty minutes before the I Dos. Stranded in her bridal attire when her car breaks down, she starts walking, desperate to get as far from Chicago as possible.

Their road to love is filled with twists, turns and bumps…and a flogger! Hanging on to the one you love can be a roller coaster ride with surprising results.

“This story is awesome. What’s not to love when there is a runaway bride from a very wealthy family, fiancé (ex-fiancé) with possible mob connections, big city cop looking for a less hectic life and oh yeah, the classic Cadillac that is being delivered to grandma. … This is an excellent and easy read. I highly recommend it. I was given an ARC for an honest review. “

– Reader Review,

“A smart and witty storyline with charismatic characters that seem to be different as night and day, but soon find out they have plenty in common. … These two, and the reader, are in for one heck of an adventure.”
