No critic rating

Waiting for minimum critic reviews


After taking the rap for a crime he didn't commit, Jake Chandler swore he'd seen the last of his unforgiving Texas hometown. Until family business brings him back…face-to-face with his past in River Bluff. Face-to-face with Rachel Diamonte.

Not only did Rachel break his heart, she was the lone witness whose so-called evidence fifteen years earlier had branded him a "barn burner."

And now the former homecoming queen—a single mother who needs help—has the nerve to ask him for a job. It could be Jake's chance to make her pay for what she did.… So why does he find himself compelled to protect her and her little girl?


About Linda Style

Linda Style prepared herself for a career in writing by doing all the usual things. She's traveled from Australia to Istanbul, earned degrees in behavioral science and in journalism, completed programs in photography and organizational management, and worked as a photographer, a freelance writer, a caseworker, an investigator, and a management consultant. An obvious segue? Well, sure! Linda believes it's all been a training ground for what she really wanted to do--write fiction. To find time to write, Linda would rise at 4:30 a.m. each day to fit in some writing before work, then during lunch she'd edit and revise. Her travels are well documented through dozens of photos, journals, and tapes--because she's always known that, someday, she'd use the information in her books. To date, she's written four books, which have won or placed in over a dozen RWA contests for unpublished writers. All four novels have reached the finals in the Romance Writers of America's prestigious Golden Heart contest for unpublished novelists. Linda's debut novel, Her Sister's Secret, a June 2000 Harlequin Superromance, was a 1999 finalist in the single title category of the Golden Heart and also won the grand prize in the Dazzling Hook contest. Linda's passions (besides her husband, four sons, one daughter-in-law, one almost daughter-in-law, two totally awesome grandchildren, and two stepchildren and their spouses) still include travel and photography. She belongs to several writers' groups, and has left all her earlier careers to write full-time from her home in Gilbert, Arizona. "I still can't believe that someone actually wants to pay me to do what I love to do. How great is that?" Linda would love to hear from you. You can write her at: P.O. Box 2292, Mesa, Arizona, 95214–2292, or email her at LindaStyle@lindastyle.com.
