about

When realtor and recovering Southern Belle Savannah Martin wakes up alone on what is supposed to be her wedding day, she isn’t sure what to think. Did her fiancé—bad-boy TBI agent Rafe Collier—decide he couldn’t face being shackled to one woman for the rest of his life... or is something more sinister going on?

Savannah’s mother Margaret Anne, in Nashville for the nuptials, is certain she knows the truth: her future son-in-law has always been an ill-bred cad, and leaving his pregnant girlfriend practically at the altar clinches it. But the people who know Rafe aren’t so sure. Wendell Craig with the TBI and Tamara Grimaldi with the Metro Nashville PD suspect foul play, and set out to prove it.

Shortly, a dead woman turns up in Savannah’s house. Rafe’s son David goes missing from church camp on the Cumberland Plateau. And a shadowy figure from Rafe’s past is stalking them all—a knife-wielding killer who likes to hurt women, and who has a score to settle.

Now Savannah must solve the murder, find David, and avoid getting herself killed... or she can kiss her happy ending—and Rafe—goodbye. 

Excerpt: 

I woke up alone on what should have been my wedding day.

That might not strike you as unusual for a bride, but I was living in sin with my husband-to-be, and it was quite a while since I’d woken up alone in bed. Usually I woke up with Rafe’s arm around me, his hand splayed protectively over my stomach, and his nose buried in my hair.

Today, his side of the bed was empty and cold.

Under normal circumstances, I might have reasoned he’d just gone to work. But he’d taken the day off to get married, so he wasn’t on the clock today.

And it was almost nine o’clock. He’s usually a pretty early riser. I’m not, since I’m four months pregnant and spend much of my time feeling like I’ve been bitten by the tsetse fly. But at this point of the morning, and especially given today’s agenda, I would have expected him to have woken me up.

I spent a few moments listening to the sounds of the house. It was June, and approaching ninety-five degrees outside, so the A/C was pumping cold air through the vents. The system hummed. Other things hummed, too. Electrical things. Things like the refrigerator downstairs, and probably the TV and the computer. It’s never entirely silent anymore unless the electricity goes out.

But while I could hear electrical humming, and birds singing outside, and the sound of car tires going by on the street, I couldn’t hear any sounds of activity inside the house. If Rafe was up, and downstairs, he was being very quiet.

I swung my legs over the edge of the bed. The hardwood floors were cold from the air conditioning as I padded toward the door. “Rafe?”

There was no answer from downstairs. I grabbed a robe from behind the door and shrugged into it as I walked across the landing to the stairs. I didn’t think anyone was in the house, but I’m still well-bred enough that I don’t wander around in the altogether with my breasts and pregnant stomach on display. You never know when someone might be standing on the porch with his nose pressed to one of the windows.
