From the Publisher
It's true what they say: Money changes everything. And in Linda
Howard's red-hot novel Burn, the changes come
fast, furious, and filled with the kind of sexy suspense,
heart-stopping romance, beautiful people, and risky business
guaranteed to give you the most bang for your buck.
Money certainly changes Jenner Redwine's life when she wins a
lottery jackpot. But it also costs her plenty: Her father rips her
off and disappears, her fortune-hunting boyfriend soon becomes her
ex, and friends-turned-freeloaders give her the cold shoulder when
she stops paying for everything.
Flush with new money, Jenner can't imagine ever finding a place in
the world of the wealthy. Seven years later, though, she's rubbing
elbows with the rich, despite the fact she still feels like a party
crasher. Luckily she finds an ally-and a guide to the rarefied
realm of privilege-in shy, kind-hearted heiress Sydney Hazlett, who
quickly becomes Jenner's confidante and surrogate sister.
When Sydney invites Jenner on a charity cruise aboard a luxury
liner, Jenner reluctantly agrees. But while she's expecting-and
dreading-two weeks of masquerade balls, art auctions, and preening
glitterati, what she gets is more like a Hitchcock movie than a
Love Boat episode. Taken hostage by a menacing stranger, Jenner
must cooperate in a mysterious cloak-and-dagger scheme-or else.
With nowhere to run, and with Sydney's life as well as her own at
risk, Jenner is drawn into a game of dizzying intrigue and
harrowing danger. But as her panic gives way to exhilaration, and
fear of her captor turns to fascination, Jenner rediscovers
feelings she hasn't had in years-and realizes she's found a life
worth living. If she survives.
