Friction by Sandra Brown
Texas rancher Crawford Hunt thought it might not go his way today. He hopes to get custody of Georgia, his little girl.
The gunman enters Judge Holly's courtroom and shoots the court bailiff and Crawford throws the judge on the floor covering his body to protect her. Others hit the floor as the gunman approaches and he is able to throw him off by hitting him in the knee.
He flees and Crawford follows him after taking bailiffs gun and is able to find him on the roof where others are there but he ends up dead.
Crawford and Holly do meet later the next day and the unthinkable happens and they talk to discover it wasn't the real gunman who died.
Their romantic encounter throws her off guard and avoids him...
Action and adventure along with smokey hot sex scenes and more plots all come to a head...
