After she's dumped by her faithless fiancee, Claire Spencer abandons her dreams of a family of her own. Instead, she plots her solo course and settles for a quiet life as an independent Williamsburg shop owner. So how does she become a killer's target?
Sometime security consultant Riley, burned out, stung by his ex-wife, and haunted by a young girl he couldn't save, vows never to work with women again. But when a thug tries to kill Claire and she winds up in Riley's arms, his plans go all to hell. Knowing she's in danger, his protective instincts won't let him walk away.
Old letters in a hidden trunk reveal long-buried secrets, leading Claire and Riley to political connections with organized crime and Mob hitmen. While dodging a speeding car, ducking bullets, and escaping through murky swamp waters, conventional Claire and freewheeling Riley struggle against their powerful chemistry - if she's picket fences, he's barbed wire. Opposites do attract.

Thrilling story, gripping narration
I love these kind of genre mashups, between thriller and romance. Both elements worked well here, and the author knows how to play all the necessary notes expertly.
April's narration is amazing. A lot of narrators just sound like they're reading a laundry list. Every moment of April's performance (and that's what it is - a PERFORMANCE) is infused with emotion and characterization. I will definitely seek out more of her books.
Thrilling and exciting...
