After a sudden tragedy blew her world apart, Peyton Kerr
fled her big city career and started over in Stoney
Creek, Maine. So far, she's loving small-town life--no
one knows about her past, and her easy flirtation with
Boone Knight gives her a reason to smile. But then
someone is murdered in Peyton's store, and her quiet,
anonymous existence is instantly destroyed. To make
matters worse, Boone--a police detective--is assigned to
the case, and Peyton knows she can't keep him at arm's
length any longer. She's resisted the simmering heat
between them--but now this gorgeous man is promising to
keep her safe--and satisfied...
Boone Knight doesn't want the complications of a
relationship. But when he volunteers to protect his
town's newest--and sexiest--resident, he finally admits
he'd like to explore their sizzling attraction. And after
one incredible night, everything changes for Boone.
Peyton is sweeter--and braver--than anyone he's ever met,
and with her in his arms, everything makes sense. He just
needs to convince her to trust him enough to reveal her
secrets, or risk losing her to a merciless killer who
seems to grow bolder with each passing day.
