The #1 New York Times-bestselling author presents a riveting novel where a canine search and rescue volunteer fights danger and finds love in the Pacific Northwest wilderness.

To most people, Fiona Bristow seems to have an idyllic life-a quaint house on an island off Seattle''s coast, a thriving dog-training school, and a challenging volunteer job performing canine search and rescues. Not to mention her three intensely loyal Labs. But Fiona got to this point by surviving a nightmare...

Several years ago, Fiona was the only survivor of the Red Scarf serial killer, who shot and killed Fiona''s cop fiancé and his K-9 partner.

On Orcas Island, Fiona found the peace and solitude she needed to rebuild her life. But all that changes on the day Simon Doyle barrels up her drive, desperate for her help. He''s the reluctant owner of an out-of-control puppy, foisted upon him by his mother. Jaws has eaten through Simon''s house, and he''s at his wit''s end.

To Fiona, Jaws is nothing she can''t handle. Simon, however, is another matter. A newcomer to Orcas, he''s a rugged and in-tensely private artist, known for the exquisite furniture he creates from wood. Simon never wanted a puppy-and he most definitely doesn''t want a woman. Besides, the lanky redhead is not his type. But tell that to his hormones.

As Fiona embarks on training Jaws, and Simon begins to appreciate both dog and trainer, the past tears back into Fiona''s life. A copycat killer has emerged out of the shadows, a man whose bloodlust has been channeled by a master with one motive: to reclaim the woman who slipped out of his hands...

Read from the Book

One On a chilly morning in February with a misty rain shuttering the windows, Devin and Rosie Cauldwell made slow, sleepy love. It was day three of their week''s vacation—and month two of their attempt to conceive a second child. Their three–year–old son, Hugh, was the result of a long weekend on Orcas Island in the San Juans and—Rosie was convinced—a rainy afternoon and a bottle of Pinot Noir. They hoped to repeat their success with a return visit to Orcas, and happily applied themselves to the mission at hand while their toddler slept with his beloved Wubby in the next room. It was too early in the day for wine, but Rosie took the quiet rain as an omen. When they were snuggled up together, loose and warm from sex, she smiled. "Who had the best idea ever?" Devin gave her ass an easy squeeze. "You did." "Hang on, because I just had another one." "I think I need a few minutes, first." She laughed, rolled and propped herself on his chest to grin at him. "Get your mind off sex, Sleazy." "I think I need a few minutes for that, too." "Pancakes. We need pancakes. Rainy morning, our cozy little house. Definitely calls for pancakes." He squinted at her. "Who''s making them?" "Let the fates decide." She scooted up, and in a long–standing Cauldwell family tradition they let the balance hang on Rock, Paper, Scissors—best two out of three. "Damn it," she muttered when he crushed her scissors with his rock. "Superior skill wins out." "My ass. But
