New York Times bestselling author Julie Garwood delivers a contemporary romance that''s pulse-pounding in every sense of the word.
Dr. Ellie Sullivan has just completed her residency at a large urban hospital. While jogging in a park nearby, she witnesses the shooting of an FBI agent in pursuit of wanted criminals, a couple identified as the Landrys. The only person to see the shooter''s face, Ellie is suddenly at the center of a criminal investigation.
Agent Max Daniels takes over the Landry case. A no-nonsense lawman, he''s definitely not the ideal man that Ellie has always imagined, yet she''s attracted to him in a way she can''t explain.
Ellie heads home to Winston Falls, South Carolina, to attend her sister''s wedding. Shortly after she arrives, though, she receives a surprise visitor: Max Daniels. The Landrys have been captured, and she''ll be called to testify. But they''ve been captured before, and each time the witnesses are scared into silence-or disappear before they can take the stand. Max vows to be Ellie''s shadow until the trial, and it isn''t long before sparks fly.
