From the New York Timesbestselling author of
Dream Eyes and Copper Beach, a brand-new
quintessential Jayne Ann Krentz romance.
It's been thirteen years since Lucy Sheridan was in Summer River.
The last time she visited her aunt Sara there, as a teenager, she'd
been sent home suddenly after being dragged out of a wild partyby
the guy she had a crush on, just to make it more embarrassing.
Obviously Mason Fletcheronly a few years older but somehow a lot
more of a grown-upwas the overprotective type who thought he had
to come to her rescue.
Now, returning after her aunt's fatal car accident, Lucy is
learning there was more to the story than she realized at the time.
Mason had saved her from a very nasty crime that nightand soon
afterward, Tristan, the cold-blooded rich kid who'd targeted her,
disappeared mysteriously, his body never found.
A lot has changed in thirteen years. Lucy now works for a private
investigation firm as a forensic genealogist, while Mason has quit
the police force to run a successful security firm with his
brotherthough he still knows his way around a wrench when he fills
in at his uncle's local hardware store. Even Summer River has
changed, from a sleepy farm town into a trendy upscale spot in
California's wine country. But Mason is still a protector at heart,
a serious (and seriously attractive) man. And when he and Lucy make
a shocking discovery inside Sara's house, and some of Tristan's old
friends start acting suspicious, Mason's quietly fierce instincts
kick into gear. He saved Lucy once, and he'll save her again. But
this time, she insists on playing a role in her own rescue . .
