Ten months ago, Elizabeth Baker uncovered a dangerous secret about her politician husband -- a secret that nearly got her killed. Now she and her children are running for their lives. When Beth is hired as the caretaker of a remote Pennsylvania estate, she dares to hope she has found a corner of the world where Congressman Richard Baker can't find them. But when her new boss dies suddenly and his nephew inherits the estate, Beth is faced with outwitting a former homicide detective who is very smart, very suspicious -- and very attractive. Forced into retirement by an injury and grieving the loss of his uncle, Jack O'Malley is unprepared to share his new home with a strange woman and her two kids. He is even less prepared for the instantaneous attraction he feels whenever Beth enters the room. She is beautiful, intelligent, kind... and obviously terrified of someone or something. As Jack's investigation uncovers the shocking details of Beth's past, the rural community is shaken by the murder of a local woman. Driven by instinct and desire, Jack is determined to keep Beth and her children safe, even if doing so means putting his heart -- and his life -- on the line.
