Teresa Phelps is not having a good day . . . All the lovely though quirky doctoral candidate wants to do is to buy new towels for her aunt’s coming visit and make a quick getaway to her Galveston area beach house. Then drop-dead-handsome Brit Charles Everett barges into her life . . . and abducts her at gunpoint from a Houston department store! Even more bizarre, Charles claims that Teresa is having an affair with his father. Certain she has been kidnapped by a nut case, Teresa tries reasoning with Charles, to no avail. Worse yet, they are soon confronted by an outlandish brigade of thugs, thieves and lunatics, all of whom want to kill her!
Everyone seems to want something from Teresa, including Charles, but she has no idea what it is. Could it have something to do with her brother’s recent death in a freak accident? Although Charles claims he wants to protect Teresa, the greatest danger may be to her heart, as the sexy, debonair Brit seems determined to win her over lock, stock and barrel. What is Charles really after? Can he and Teresa solve the mystery before disaster befalls them? Or does he have an ulterior motive that may threaten her very life?
