Family on the run
Criminals are trying to kidnap attorney Samantha Callahan's adopted daughter, Lily -- and she has no idea why. So when bullets start flying, Samantha and Lily speed of in her car...and crash right into help.
Ex-cop Reid Palmer is shocked when former law school student classmate Samantha rear ends his car and then climbs in with her daughter and begs him to drive. Now they are on the run, and Reid will do anything to protect them and figure out why kidnappers are after Lily.
As they struggle to evade capture, Reid begins to realize that Samantha is more to him than just a woman in trouble. But with the enemies closing in and their motives finally revealed, will Reid be able to make sure justice is served?
An apt title because Reid and Samantha are under duress the entire book. The cat and mouse chase just doesn't let up and they can't figure out why. How are they being tracked? And what do the criminals want? No matter what they do they are never safe for long. I was a nervous wreck on their behalf by the end of the story! Luckily Samantha is made of sterner stuff -- though she does have her moments. Nice to meet a heroine who doesn't have it all together all of the time. She even snipes with Reid just because. Poor Reid, he really doesn't deserve it either, but he is the stoic type. A whirlwind of a read that will leave you feeling dishevelled by the end.
