Jennifer Fox's life ended when her husband and children died in a plane crash. Wanting to die, she hires a hit man to kill her. Mercenary Rook Rydell knew the lady walking into his seedy hang-out was trouble. Trained not to care, he didn't understand why she made him do just that. But killing people was something he just did, so he tried to forget how she made him feel.

When Jennifer discovers that the plane crash wasn't an accident and that she was the intended victim, she goes to Rook once again for help-this time to stop the hitman.

What ensues is one terrific, exciting adventure. Mainstream fans will discover what series fans have long known: Rachel Lee is a master of romantic suspense and tells a story like very few others. (Nov., 348 pp., $5.99)
