Tough, strong-willed Natasha King was raised by professional bounty hunters and knows the dangers of tracking fugitives. She’s now on a mission to locate a murderer, who just happens to be her long-lost father. She is paired with sinfully handsome Sheriff Trent Oakley, who is leading the search, and she finds she is constantly on guard with her new partner. Her feelings for him are growing quickly, and bit by bit her heart is being revealed. Trent finds that Natasha, in turn, is quickly getting a hold on his heart. But can he trust her? (ST.
