Bestselling author Sandra Chastain spins a breathless tale of dark menace and dangerous desire as two people with guarded hearts find themselves at the mercy of an intense mutual attraction.
Content to live without passion and pleasure, Sterling Lindsey prefers solitude—until she abandons the refuge she’s created for herself . . . unable to ignore an invitation from the mysterious Lincoln “Mac” McAllister, someone she knows only through emails and late-night phone calls. But their plans to rendezvous take on a sudden urgency when Sterling has a close call with the gunman who left her for dead ten years ago.
As one of the richest men in the world, Mac can pretty much do what he wants. And for Mac that means helping people—in Sterling’s case, whisking her off to his fortress compound in New Mexico. But it may not be enough to stop a cunning killer—and it offers even less protection against the rebellious stirrings in his own heart . . . and hers. Because no matter how determined Mac and Sterling are never to love again, they’re powerless to resist the pull of desire—especially once they fall into each others’ arms. Includes a special message from the editor, as well as excerpts from other Loveswept titles.
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
