When a long-legged distraction races into the middle of Zane's operation and stows away on his airplane, he should hand her over to the authorities and keep his cover intact. But with one look at the terrorized woman, a primal need to protect forces Zane to risk everything, starting with his heart.
Escaping the compound of a deadly international felon--with a fortune in rare, stolen coins hidden on her body--elite athlete Angel Farentino has to make the most important run of her life. Literally. With her father in prison, where he belongs, and a prior undeserved conviction hanging over her head, she has nowhere to turn and no one to trust. Definitely not law enforcement that railroaded her through a judicial nightmare. One step ahead of lethal men and dogs on her trail, she runs into the arms of a dark stranger willing to help her if she'd let him. But she can’t. To do so would only get the sexy pilot killed.
Between figuring out who's sabotaging his undercover work for the DEA and struggling to save his baby sister from herself, Zane Jackson has enough on his plate. The last thing he needs is to get entangled with a woman who's treading on the wrong side of the law ... but the minute he pulls Angel into his arms he decides that no one's hurting her again. No one.
"Riveting thriller and a haunting love story with characters I couldn't help but empathize with." ~~ Darlene Kendall, Fresh Fiction Reviews
