Just as she was adjusting to her new life as a college professor, former fashion model Gina Paletta becomes the target of murder suspects harboring an unhealthy obsession with her.

Widowed at a young age, Gina moves to a college town with her two boys to start a new life as a professor. Unaware that some of her students have created a website featuring lascivious photos of her, she thinks everything's going well until she receives a phone call from the cops. Caught in the sights of two potential student stalkers, Gina may be in grave danger. A student that used to hang out with the other two has turned up dead.

As family secrets are uncovered and the stalkers threaten, Gina is drawn to handsome detective Tommy Galloway. But just as she tries to love again, more adversaries come at her from an unexpected direction.

Shaara is a great new voice in romantic suspense. Her first novel hooks readers immediately with its dramatic plot and alluring characters. It's full of romance, suspense, secret pasts and deeper meanings. Readers won't be able to put it down. (Jul., 464 pp., $24.95)
