Emma Purcell is puzzled to learn her troubled cousin has died and left her a boat. Her cousin knew she was terrified of the water and would be overcome by fear just standing on a boat. Still, she decides to fulfill his last request and see the boat in person before selling it. There, she encounters Harlan McClaren, who is too busy trying to recover from his own demons to help her with her own. Justine Davis tells an interesting story in MIDNIGHT SEDUCTION (3), but it may be a bit on the dark side for most readers familiar with this line.
