Synopsis

After ten stolen years in a coma, hanging on to life by strands of uncertainty, Linda Faraday is finally awake. All she knows is she used to be an undercover operative looking into the shady dealings of embezzler Cameron Fortune. And today… A survivor? A mother to a ten-year-old son? Now that Ryan Fortune is gone, FBI agent Emmett Jamison is stepping in to help her—although he hardly seems thrilled at the prospect.

An empty house and a growing connection erode some of Linda's doubts about welcoming Emmett into her heart. But ultimately Linda isn't sure Emmett fits into her plans: a simple life with a simple man. Spending days chasing after his murderously insane brother hardly qualifies. But maybe Linda was never meant to take the safe road. Maybe it's time for a final reckoning. For everyone…
 

About Christie Ridgway

See more books from this Author
An avid reader, Christie began writing romances in the fifth grade when she wrote stories starring her teen idol (and herself as the heroine, of course!). These stories remain intact, in a locked box with a mercifully missing key. After college as an English major, she became a technical writer in the computer field for a number of years. That led her into computer programming, a geeky profession that was not-so-surprisingly satisfying for the daughter and sister of accountants. Christie married her college sweetheart and gave up full-time programming when her first son was born. A visit from an old friend prompted her to take up writing again, and she joined her local chapter of Romance Writers of America two weeks later. Thanks to the camaraderie and support she found there, Christie persevered, making her first sale to Silhouette. When another son joined her family, she continued to write, juggling motherhood, wifehood, and the writing life. She makes her home in Southern California, writing for both Silhouette Special Edition and Avon Books, thanks to the support of her math teacher husband and their two boys. If Christie is not at her computer writing contemporary romances, she is doing laundry or watching soccer games or doing laundry or watching basketball games or doing laundry or helping with homework. She does a lot of laundry due to growing sons, and a husband who likes to surf, bike, and fix things! While the yellow Labrador retriever, the birds, the fish, and the family amphibians do not add to the laundry piles, they do add to the excitement. As often as possible, though, Christie escapes it all with--what else?--a romance.
