Her "father's" deathbed confession reveals that Holly's real father was almost certainly the notorious serial killer known as "The Hunter", and that her mother gave Holly up to save her life. But The Hunter was never caught - and Holly’s mother simply vanished.
In search of her past, Holly leaves both her home and Bud Tate, the handsome ranch foreman she’s afraid to love, horrified by the knowledge that the blood of a depraved killer might run through her veins. Haunted, driven, she searches for The Hunter and hopes her mother was wrong.
But her search leads to a terrible truth no one could have imagined, and even Bud’s determination to follow and protect the woman he loves may not be enough to save Holly from the terrors of a past become present.

Same Ole Book Again
As with Blood Ties and Blood Stains this, the third book in the series begins with the reading of Andrew Slade's will. As with her sisters, Holly's mother gave her to Preacher Slade to save her life; as in Blood Stains with Maria it was her father she needed to be protected from. As in the other two books; a Slade sister flew into her old hometown full of ignorant confidence and plenty of hubris. Just as her sister's did she makes a ridiculously dumb move due to that confidence and hubris. The move that Holly makes is dumber than than any of the ones that either of his sister's made. In fact the one bright move she makes is to retreat to her hotel room for a couple of days. Then like her sister Savannah she finally has enough wisdom to recognize all of her vast limitations and asks for the help of her big bad cowboy boyfriend. Then even though she's done all that she can do in the city of her previous life she's determined to stay there rather than go home to Montana; no that would make too much sense. Indeed the only reason for her to stay in St. Louis, (or Miami or Tulsa) is to provide the killer with a convenient target. Then of course there is a dramatic confrontation, lots of overly enthusiastic compliments for each of the Slade sisters and finally of course the 'ol happily everafter for all concerned.
Still all three of them are more or less relatively pleasant listens despite a plot and events that strain credulity. All in all not a bad investment.
