'Twas the night before Christmas . . . and dozens of rich,
influential hostages are trapped inside a sprawling lakefront
mansion in New Orleans. The perp? Detective Reed Ware, model cop
turned outlaw. Reed's out for truth, and will stop at nothing to
get it-including waging a coup among the city's most elite,
including the mayor, the council chairman, the sheriff, and the
superintendent of police . . . who just happens to be hostage
negotiator Caroline Wallace's father.
Cool, calm, controlled. That's Caroline's reputation. But when
Reed, looking even hotter than he did years ago when
seventeen-year-old Caroline tried to seduce him, becomes her next
case, she's swept up by their still-sizzling tension.
Nothing about tonight is what it seems, and it's up to Caroline to
put the pieces together-if she can think fast enough over the
pounding of her heart. But the harder Caroline tries to do her job,
the more she begins to wonder whose side she's really on.
