Waiting for minimum critic reviews


Cochise County needed a new deputy and Cage Nichols needed a cover—pronto. Unfortunately, Cage unknowingly assumed the identity of an undercover hit man who'd marked stand-in Sheriff Grace Steele to be murdered.

He was an ex-cop sidelined by a bullet. Now, Cage was embedded in the dusty West Texas border town with no choice but to assume the role of a double agent in order to expose a conspiracy and to protect his own hide. That was the plan. Until he met Grace.

Whether it was the isolation of the no-man's-land town of Jericho Pass or the intense desert heat, he couldn't say, but Cage was fast falling for Grace. He only hoped she wouldn't lock him up after he saved her.

Amanda Stevens grew up in a small, rural town situated between the rocky foothills and the flat farmland of northeast Arkansas. Her father a farmer and her mother an avid quilter, Amanda's humble childhood was rich with tradition. Warmed by a fire on a cold winter's night, she would sit enraptured for hours by ghost stories that had been passed down for generations.At an early age, books became her best friend. She not only devoured the stories, she lived them. By the time she was ten, she'd built a sod house on the prairie with Charles Ingalls, fought and befriended green Martians with the dashing John Carter and rafted down the mighty Mississippi with Tom Sawyer. Junior high brought new discoveries-- Debutante Hill, Gone with the Wind, Anne Frank: The Diary of a Young Girl-- and by high school, Amanda knew she wanted to write. However, it wasn't until several years later at the encouragement of a wonderful English professor that she actually tried her hand at a novel. Her first book, Killing Moon, was published by the Silhouette Intimate Moments series, and now, several years later, she is the author of over forty novels of romantic suspense.She lives in Houston, Texas, with her family and a black cat named Lola.
