When journalist Max Travis unearths a political scandal involving an energy broker blackmailing a senator for votes, he suddenly finds himself framed for murder. With no avenue for escape, he commits a desperate act and kidnaps Jade, the senator's daughter. Max is counting on her help to bring down the people determined to destroy him and her father. But he doesn't count on the red-hot passion they discover together. The characters in Jo Leigh's Christmas Stalking (3) often make illogical choices, but despite this, the story moves at a face pace and contains plenty of action.
