NO SAFE PLACE
He lives by the law. She's running for her life.
After forensic accountant Beth Greenwood uncovers a money-laundering scheme tying her company to the organization that murdered her mentor, she knows she needs to go into hiding. With ruthless killers in pursuit, she's forced to rely on homeland security agent Corbin Ross's protection -- even as his investigation suggests Beth is complicit in embezzlement. Can their uneasy alliance develop into something deeper -- and keep them alive?
Love a nerve-wracking, heart-palpitating start to a romantic suspense and this one is all that and more. It has the kind of opening scene that sends uneasy shivers up and down a reader's spine. Tension and danger and a wary partnership that makes trust seem impossible. Corbin is all too quick to assume Beth's guilt while she has valid reasons for her lack of confidence in law enforcement. Such a delicious tumult of emotions as these two struggle through their issues while trying to stay alive!
A really interesting and unique suspense thread brings fresh appeal to the plot. And I love the way Shackelford balances the urgency of staying a step ahead of the bad guys with the complicated development of their relationship. It's all two steps forward and one step back on both fronts! Sublimely scrumptious and white-knuckling right to the last page!
