Mara Quinn grew up determined that she would never end up
like her mother, choosing a career guaranteed to reaffirm
those convictions on a daily basis. In doing so, she'd
allowed her old fears to become a trap, an emotional prison
of her own making.
Never in a million years would Mara have believed that she,
who counseled women in abusive realtionships for a living,
would find herself in the same situation and forced to run
for her life.
She had been so careful, covering her tracks and setting up
a false trail. Even being a cop, she didn't think there was
any way Ross would be able to find her.
When she least expected it, when she was too vulnerable to
resist, J.T. Dalton had efforlessly stormed the walls she'd
so carefully built around herself, making her want more than
the sterile emotionless existence she'd set herself up to
live. Was it possible for a woman to love a man and still
retain her sense of self, her independence? Did she have the
courage to find out?
