In the small town of Charmed, Texas, plenty of folks have found the path to true love. But now two outsiders have arrived to shake things up . . .Never one to do things by the book, Micah Roman couldn’t just chalk it up to bridal jitters, or even quietly call off her wedding to her long-time fiancé. No, she has to high-tail it out of the church sporting a dress that cost more than her car, and jump on the back of a smoking-hot stranger’s motorcycle. Her knight in all-black is headed to a town called Charmed, so that’s where she’ll go and try to lay low. Except their appearance raises plenty of eyebrows . . . and a sudden, intense attraction she has no business exploring.
Who knew picking up a damsel in distress would lead to lust at first sight? Leo McKane headed to Charmed prepared to deal with some family secrets—including his status as long-lost brother. This runaway bride is an unexpected distraction his set agenda and loner lifestyle doesn’t include. She’s everywhere he turns, getting under his skin with her quirky, headstrong ways and eyes he can’t forget. But when Micah’s jilted ex comes looking for her and opens up his shady past, Leo knows he has a choice to make.
They both do.
Run to safer ground again? Or take a leap that their untrusting hearts are wary to take

I received and advanced copy of this book from the publisher via Netgalley in exchange for an honest review. Thank you! The expected publication date is July 10th
This is the 4th story in the Charmed in Texas series and I have enjoyed every story in the series thus far. While perhaps it could be read as a stand alone, I would not recommend to do so. As all of the characters from the previous stories play a role in this one it may confuse a reader without the context of their stories. Also some reference may lost meaning without such context such as the man in the woods as one specific example.
This story is just as quirky as the ones that came before it. I mean when the main characters meet because the female is running from the alter in her wedding dress and jumps on a complete strangers motorcycle, you know you in for a ride, literally.
The formula pretty much stays the course with the other installments as well. The attraction between Micah and Leo is instant and intense leaving the reader in anticipation of if and when they will succumb to the attraction (you now that the when will be the winner).
This story took me no time at all to read. While I felt the L word was used way to soon, I had to realize that in a story that is only 244 pages, perhaps the characters will get there before me. And seriously, isn't that what we all came her for?
This is a quirky story and series that I have enjoyed thus far. There will be at least one more that I am aware of and I will make sure to pick it up!
