Protecting the Single Mom by Catherine Lanigan (Blog Tour & #Giveaway)

On Tour with Prism Book Tours.

Book Tour Launch for
Protecting the Single Mom
By Catherine Lanigan


Hi, and welcome to my Prism Tour for “Protecting the Single Mom”. I’ll bet you’re wondering why I chose this tour title for a Heartwarming story in little old sweet small town Indian Lake, right? Right off the bat, let me tell you that in the real world, there are a lot of dangers, but falling in love, now that’s a real risk. How many people get married for all the wrong reasons? Just check the divorce statistics. In my opinion, love is too often discarded and other “sensible choices” enter the picture. Risking your heart for a lifetime with another person? It’s not practical. It’s nonsensical and yet, we all dream of that one true love. Our soul mate. Our adored one that we will spend all of this lifetime sharing, caring and creating, sigh, a family.

But what if, your life choices had driven you to that place where of all the things that could happen to you, love was never it. Impossible. Not to be discussed or negotiated?

That’s what happened to Cate Sullivan. She ran away from her abusive husband with nothing, nothing but the clothes on her back. No ID. Money, credit card. Just guts and courage. And she was pregnant. She hitchhiked across state lines and wound up in Indian Lake where she changed her name and has been living in disguise for six years. Cate, AKA Susan Kramer, has created a false life for her  six year old son, Danny, and things are going well—until Detective Trent Davis---aggressively bent on bringing a murderous drug lord to justice---discovers that the drug lord is Cate’s ex-husband.

Trent has lived his life as a Special Forces Sniper in Afghanistan and now on the Indian Lake Police Department, head of the Drug Task Force Team…in a Danger Zone. Shadows of his past haunt his nights and afflict his days. Trent can never be with any woman, yet Cate has burrowed deep in his heart.

He’s about to draw Cate and her little son, Danny, into his circle of danger, by convincing Cate to be the bait to draw her ex-husband into Trent’s trap.

Cate finds that she’s not so brave after all, when she falls in love with Trent, the one man she can never and should never love.
