When she was a child, Pepper Prescott's parents were killed in a car accident, and she and her siblings were separated and sent to foster homes. Now a successful gardenerlandscaper, she once again hits the skids when she sees General Jennifer Napier kill her aide because he discovered she was working with terrorists.

Convinced the police won't believe her, Pepper flees to the one place she feels safe: Mrs. Dreies' ranch in Idaho. Counter-terrorism expert Lt. Dan Graham is setting himself up as bait. Because Dan killed terrorist Schuster's son in battle, he knows Schuster is gunning for him. Using the empty Dreies ranch should have worked perfectly—but Pepper shows up.

This is second chapter in Dodd's series about the separated Prescott siblings. Also woven into this adventure is the continuing search by Pepper's sister Hope for her missing siblings. Powerful emotions and dangerous situations make this a must-read book. (Jun., 375 pp., $6.99)
