TO TRUST A STRANGER by KAREN ROBARDS
Suspicion. It burned through every nerve and fiber
of Julie Carlsonthe heartbreaking, infuriating
suspicion that her husband was having an affair. To the
rest of the world, Sid Carlson was a wealthy contractor
with friends in highly influential places. But to Julie,
he was a man who had cheated on their marriage
vowand she knew she had to take desperate measures.
Who can she trust? Heartbroken by her husband, Julie turns
to a handsome stranger.
Mac McQuarry knew better than to mix women and work: the
private detective had tracked enough cheating spouses to
know unbridled desire usually has no good end. And he had
enough trouble of his own: the disgraced former cop had
been bumped way down to his current status after an
explosive shakedown of the Charleston police department.
But when Julie Carlson hires him, Mac can't resist. Not
only is she drop-dead gorgeous, but her husband, a
longtime enemy, was a player in Mac's inglorious
downfalland he'd love nothing more than to catch the
corrupt jerk with his pants down, so to speak.
But what begins as a run-of-the-mill assignment spiced by
a fiery flirtation with beautiful Julie suddenly spirals
into a harrowing race for survival. Tracking the Carlsons'
car down a lonely road one night, Mac witnesses an
incredible hit that targeted Julieand suddenly Mac
and Julie have become the hunted. With the mob and the
police in hot pursuit, they can rely only on each other as
they crash their way through a maze of buried secrets and
