by Kate Merrill

In New York City, artist Jan Seagal is riding high on her latest success when she’s attacked by a crooked vice cop. She manages to escape in a blast of violence, but he frames her on a fabricated drug charge. Now a wanted felon, she changes her name and runs for her life.

In small-town Ohio, five years later, police officer Shelly O’Brien is forced to kill a young gunman in a mass shooting at a mall. Emotionally devastated and gun-shy, she takes a leave of absence to live with her spunky Aunt Charlotte on a lake in North Carolina.

When Shelly takes a summer job as a custom picture framer with Jan, who now owns a struggling art gallery, their attraction is sudden and passionate. As Jan tries to hide her past life from Shelly, the danger escalates. Neither woman realizes that Jan’s attacker has tracked her down and has arrived in North Carolina to get his revenge.

Entangled in a web of secrets, lies, and violence, will Jan trust enough and will Shelly get her mojo back in time to save them all?
