TRIGGERED (4) by Elle James: Assigned to protect Kate Langsdon and her small daughter at their ranch, smack in the middle of drug cartel territory, Ben Harding looks for a way to get out of the job. Kate and her daughter remind Ben too much of the wife and child he was unable to save from an assassin, but the longer he’s around them, the harder it is to keep them out of his heart. And it’s starting to look like the incidents designed to run Kate off the ranch she inherited aren’t going to get any attention from the local lawmen. Why is everyone so interested in the key her father left her in his will? Where does it lead and why? James builds up the suspense from page one and doesn’t let readers down with the complicated, open-ended climax.
