On the run, Sara Davis knows better than to think for a minute that she can forge a relation-ship with her sexy new neighbor, Quinn Rafferty. Unfortunately, he seems just as attracted to her as she is to him. As their relationship grows, Sara knows Quinn has secrets he's unwilling to tell her, but that's fine, since she has secrets of her own.
Quinn had a hard life, and as a bounty hunter, he doesn't give his heart or his trust to anyone -- until he meets Sara. It's not until she becomes his next missing-persons case that he knows just how deeply in love with her he is, and how badly she's betrayed him. Or has she? Quinn must decide if he's willing to trust his heart -- and Sara -- to find the answers. (BERKLEY, Mar., 336 pp., $15.00)
