Safe in His Arms by Renee Jones

Safe in His Arms - Renee Rose

***copy provided by publisher through NetGalley***

A one-weekend stand seven years ago resulted in a kid. A kid with a dead father...Only that father seems rather alive as he's wrestling (not in a kinky way) with the nanny in their kitchen.

If this was longer than 85 pages it would've remained unfinished. Because although it tried to come up with a plot about a ghost operative secretly watching over the woman he loves and his child, while also trying to apprehend a similar ghost operative who're apparently stolen some top-secret shit...I just didn't buy it. It read more like a not-very-well-written PWP short story, catering to readers who like spank-related "storylines", badly disguised as a romantic suspense novella.

It just doesn't work like that for me.
