Fired from yet another job, Cassidy St. John never expected the answer to her prayers would come looming out of the fog on Fisherman's Wharf. When celebrated artist Colin Sullivan offers her a job modeling for one of his paintings, it seems as though her troubles are over. But they're only just beginning . . .
Sullivan is mesmerising, and when he focuses his painter's gaze on Cass she finds him almost irresistible. But he also has an infamous reputation that makes her wary. Cass has no intention of becoming one of his conquests, thrown aside once the painting is done. But as she struggles to contain her feelings, she has no idea of the spell she's cast on Sullivan himself. Unaccustomed to refusal, Sullivan is fascinated by Cass - her spirit and her beauty. But it's her independence and surprising innocence that intrigues him the most. There's something different about Cassidy St. John. And as her feelings reveal themselves in her portrait, Sullivan dares to hope he can change her mind - and change his life - for ever.
Includes an extract from The Witness
The Bodine ranch and resort in western Montana is a family business, an idyllic spot for vacationers. A little over thirty thousand acres and home to four generations, it’s kept running by Bodine Longbow with the help of a large staff, including new hire Callen Skinner. There was another member of the family once: Bodine’s aunt, Alice, who ran off before Bodine was born. She never returned, and the Longbows don’t talk about her much. The younger ones, who never met her, quietly presume she’s dead. But she isn’t. She is not far away, part of a new family, one she never chose—and her mind has been shattered...
When a bartender leaves the resort late one night, and Bo and Cal discover her battered body in the snow, it’s the first sign that danger lurks in the mountains that surround them. The police suspect Cal, but Bo finds herself trusting him—and turning to him as another woman is murdered and the Longbows are stunned by Alice’s sudden reappearance. The twisted story she has to tell about the past—and the threat that follows in her wake—will test the bonds of this strong family, and thrust Bodine into a darkness she could never have imagined.
