Three weeks after the terrorist bombing of the hotel in Florence, Italy, where Sabrina Swann was manager, she returns home to Swann Island, South Carolina. Almost being buried alive in the bombing, Sabrina needs a peaceful place to rest and regroup. Swannsea, the ancestral home left to her by her deceased grandmother, is the perfect place. Eventually, Sabrina decides to stay and turn Swannsea into the best destination location in the Lowcountry. She hires former bad-boy-turned-construction-worker Zach Tremayne to head up the project.

Ex-Navy SEAL Zach Tremayne has also returned to Swann Island to rest and regroup. He needs to put the pieces back together, physically and emotionally, after a combat situation that went terribly wrong. Zach is the same wicked bad-boy Sabrina remembers; the boy she secretly watched that long, hot summer years ago. When they meet again, he still makes her stomach flutter and her pulse skip a beat.

But there's a killer lurking in the shadows. "Let the locals discover there is a monster in their midst. Let them wonder who will be next. After all...killing is his business... and business is good."

In each others' arms, Zach and Sabrina finally learn to trust again and to love again. But will the killer destroy everything they're trying so hard to rebuild?

JoAnn Ross weaves a tapestry of terror like no other author does. You can feel hearts beating in overdrive; you can smell the blood of the tortured; you can taste the terror in this seaside village. No author can put words together and tell a story like Ms. Ross. FREEFALL is a romantic thriller that sizzles with passion and danger. The story is a page-turner leading up to an ending you must read to believe. What an incredible story!

Zach Tremayne can’t forget the horror he saw in his last battle in Afghanistan as a Navy SEAL. Now home on Swann Island, he’s surprised to realize he can feel anything again, never mind the sudden sure of desire for this woman from his past.

And when together they discover danger waiting in Swann’s shadows, the woman who is desperate for peace and the man who has sworn off war will realize they are willing to do anything, risk everything, to protect a love neither saw coming...
