"Incredible! You'll be on the edge of your seat to see if the heroine can make it out alive."-Catherine Coulter, New York Times bestselling author

When adrenaline runs high, so does the force of desire...

For Shay Appleton, it's love at first sight when a gorgeous stray dog is brought into the animal shelter where she works.

It seems that someone from her past is stalking her, and threatening her life. When danger meets desire, will James risk his career and his best protect the woman who's stolen his heart?
