When Quinn O'Meara sees the fire burning in the Nevada
desert, her conscience won't let her keep riding without
checking to see if someone needs help. To her horror, she
discovers a car burning and a toddler nearby. Quinn
rescues the toddler only to find herself in need of
immediate police intervention. Fortunately, Nick Saldano
intervenes only to realize that he shared a foster home
with Quinn when they were children. But can Nick keep
Quinn safe when one of the major players in a human
trafficking ring is after her? And will their childhood
love blossom into something more lasting?
Wow! Sharon Sala books are always a pleasure to read but
RACE AGAINST TIME flat out blew me away. We see two
stories intertwined as Sharon Sala gives us a look at the
horrors of human trafficking. I love that Sharon Sala
tackles such sensitive issues, bringing us a phenomenal
story while providing awareness on the subject.
RACE AGAINST TIME alternates viewpoints, as we see the
love rekindle between Quinn and Nick. While their first
meeting was more of a childhood crush, this time they are
learning how to love each other as mature adults. Nick's
protective nature is heart-warming, particularly since he
doesn't allow his own concerns and fears to overshadow
the strong, self-sufficient woman that Quinn is.
Quinn and Nick are at the center of the story but it is
Starla Davis' story that broke my heart. Human
trafficking is a horrific crime and Sharon Sala gives us
just an inkling as to the lives that are destroyed by it.
Starla could be any teenage girl, looking to meet up with
a good-looking boy she's met online.
Sharon Sala is a master at crafting stories that will
both warm your heart and make you cry. RACE AGAINST TIME
is an emotional thriller, packed with action, love,
regrets, and criminal activity that will make your blood
boil. If you read just one romantic suspense story this
year, make it RACE AGAINST TIME as you're guaranteed a
Sometimes fate brings you together…only to tear you
Growing up in the foster system, Quinn O'Meara made a
point of never getting involved. But when she discovers a
crying baby amid a fiery crime scene, she knows she has
no choice. Suddenly in way over her head, Quinn turns to
the police, unintentionally positioning herself in the
crosshairs of a deadly human-trafficking ring.
The last time homicide detective Nick Saldano saw Quinn,
she was still the young girl he'd shared a foster home
with. The girl who'd loved and cared for him when no one
else had. Now here she was, gorgeously all grown-up—and
in terrible danger.
Unwilling to lose her again, Nick insists on keeping
Quinn close, especially when the bond they once shared
heatedly slides into desire. Quinn finally has someone
worth holding on to, but what kind of future can they
have when she might not live to see tomorrow?

been disappointed by a Sharon Sala book. They are all keepers!
