Fan favorite Sandra Chastain enthralls in this classic romance of secrets and suspense. Some people call him the Shadow—an ex–special forces soldier with a gift for setting wrongs to right without leaving a trace. But to Erica Fallon, the Shadow has always been just Conner: the first man she ever let herself love and the one man she will never get over. She’s tried to move on with her life, abandoning her passion for art and taking a prestigious position at the State Department. But she’s never forgotten Conner . . . or had the chance to explain how everything went horribly wrong.
It’s a moment burned on Conner Preston’s mind forever. He doesn’t need the scars to remind him of the pain of losing his brother—his best man—and being betrayed by his bride on the same day. Now Erica’s life is in danger, and the Shadow—Conner—is the only one who can be trusted to protect her. But keeping his heart safe from the woman who once smashed it into pieces will not be easy. Keeping her alive will be even harder.
Includes a special message from the editor, as well as excerpts from these Loveswept titles: Tempting a Devil, The Story Guy, and Friday Night Alibi.
About Sandra Chastain
As a child I made up fantasy lives for my paper dolls, never knowing that I would use these same creative skills later as a writer. I only knew that I became those dolls and lived their lives. Later came amateur stage shows for the neighborhood children to perform, my first Nancy Drew mystery, a one-act play, and finally a musical performed by high school students on an auditorium stage. From the Indian tepee that Santa brought when I was a ten-year-old, to the living room I've recently converted into my office, I'm still stretching the boundaries of my imagination.
After twenty years of working together, my husband and I sold our small-animal veterinary practice. Now he consults and practices part-time while I write full-time. Our three daughters are married, and we have grandchildren who always want Gran to tell them a story. And Gran always complies.
I wouldn't change a thing about my life, for my family is a living expression of the love I write about. When I create a romance for you, I'm telling stories of love and commitment, and I can't tell you how much pleasure I get from writing about happily ever after. --Sandra Chastain
