Getting involved shouldn't be this dangerous…
Cate Sullivan is no damsel in distress. She's kept herself and her son safe for six long years. Built a good life in Indian Lake. But now that her drug-dealing ex-husband is moving his operation here, that life is about to explode.
Her instincts tell her to trust Detective Trent Davis. That he's more than just a handsome cop doing his duty. The former Green Beret has even formed a fast bond with her son. But there's something he's not telling her. Some darkness that keeps him from giving in to the feelings she knows are growing between them. Cate trusts Trent to keep her safe, but the real question is whether he'll trust himself with her heart.
When danger rears it’s ugly head, a mother will do anything to protect! We are quickly drawn in to the story of a woman on the run who thought she could finally relax and enjoy life again … only to have her maniac of an ex show back up to terrorize her. A cast of great characters, many of whom we’ve gotten to know in past books in the series, makes a solid story.
Detective Trent Davis has been working hard to shut down the drug infiltration that has been happening in his small town of Indian Lake. They almost catch their guy, but he slips away at the last minute. Imagine Trent’s surprise when he finds out that the guy has a connection to one of his very own residents … one who has been keeping secrets!
Cate Sullivan fled her old life more than 6 years ago and settled in at Indian Lake to raise her son. They’ve been enjoying a good life with close friends and neighbors in a genuinely good town … and now her drug-dealing ex-husband has found them. She will do anything to keep her son safe … but can she bring herself to trust someone else with the job of protecting him? Trent seems like a good guy, and she can’t deny there’s something special about him when their eyes meet … but he almost seems haunted. What could he possibly be hiding? Can she trust her heart to what-if’s?
