Quinn Marshall is haunted after nearly dying in a failed attempt to save his sister. The last thing the former Houston homicide detective wants is another woman to watch over, but someone important to his brother Josh is in trouble, and Quinn's basic nature is to protect.
Soap opera star Lorie Chandler has already lost her husband to an obsessed fan and now her son is the madman's new target.
While the police hunt the killer, Quinn's rugged Texas ranch is the ideal hiding place for Lorie and her child. Neither Quinn nor Lorie expects the explosive heat or the powerful emotion that flares to life in his canyon refuge, yet there is no future for them and both are painfully aware that their time together can only be temporary.
When the madman finds them, Quinn's sole focus is on keeping Lorie and the boy he's come to love safe, even though his success will mean that he will have to give them up to a life where he cannot belong.

I've read a lot of Ms. Brashear's books and have loved every one of them and this one was no different. Her characters, Quinn, Lori, Grant, Josh and Consuela were all just wonderful. Karl Marsden was just crazy. An all around terrific book.

As you can see two years have passed since I first read this, and I decided to listen to it this time. It had been long enough for me to have forgotten some of it, due to the hundereds of books I've read since this one. And, again, I enjoyed it a second time. It was a wonderful love story with just enough stalker/murder to make it really interesting. And with just enough sex to make it a real romance.
As to the narrator: What can I saw about Eric Dove. He's just a marvelous narrator.
