How does a woman cope when the man she loves has a dangerous job? This story is about a woman stalked by a killer. Complications occur when she falls in love with the detective assigned to protect her. An excerpt:

"Hit the light in the hall," he ordered without turning from the window, and she felt the hairs on the nape of her neck rise as she switched off the light. She crossed the living room to stand behind him. "Do you see something?"

When he didn't answer, she studied him. He had shed his coat and she noticed a shoulder holster beneath his left arm. He dropped the drape and turned, almost colliding with her.

Aware she was standing too close, she bumped a chair and his hands went out to steady her. "I seem to have a knack for running into things-"

The words died when she looked up at him. His hand was on her waist, and his gaze had that intense quality a man gives a woman he wants. Her pulse jumped; she should move, but she was immobilized.

"Rebecca," he said in a husky voice that was like a caress and her body responded, her stomach clenching, heat diffusing. He stepped closer, his arm sliding around her waist while he drew her toward him.

Her heart thudded as he lowered his head, brushing her lips so lightly, a tantalizing, erotic contact that took her breath. His lips felt warm and full against hers, his breath holding a faint touch of mint...

It had been so long since she had been kissed or touched. She felt barriers shatter like fragile glass. Sensations bombarded her, the heat of need and desire, the tingling of her mouth, the strength of his arms around her. Her hesitation diminished as Jake leaned over her, and she let memories go."
