 Blurb


YOU JUST CAN'T HIDE FROM THE PAST...

Mallory Sage lives in a small, idyllic town where nothing ever happens. Just the kind of life she has always wanted. No one, not even her fellow volunteer firefighters, knows about her past life as an agent for Homeland Security.

Former partner and lover, Trey McCrane, comes back into Mallory's life. He believes they made a great team once, and that they can do so again. Besides, they don't have much choice. Paul Stanley, a twisted killer and their old nemesis, is back.
 

Framed for a bombing and drawn together by necessity, Mallory and Trey go on the run and must learn to trust each other again―if they hope to survive. But Mallory has been hiding another secret, one that could destroy their relationship. And time is running out.

- excerpt–
Under the best of circumstance, she wasn't patient. "Too bad there's no TV. We could lose ourselves in something mindless."

         His smile became predatory. "We could do that."

         He strolled to her until she raised her hand. "You stay over there."

         He stepped closer, his smile not dimmed. "Afraid you can't resist my charms?"

         "Stay over there."

         She didn't want to put herself to the test. She wasn't sure how good her resistance would be. Especially since she was out of her element or at least out of the life she'd chosen and back into the life she'd left behind.

         Trey chuckled, a sound that rumbled from the depths of his toned body. "Chicken."

         "No, I'm not."

         "Has Jesse asked you to marry him?"

         She chuckled. He had a thousand times.

         "I don't see a ring," he went on.

         She ignored him and his line of questioning. "None of that is your business."

         Trey sat on the coffee table right in front of her. Close enough for her to breathe in his scent.

         "And how long do you think a guy like Jesse will wait around for you?"

         "I'm doing this assignment and then I'm done."

         "You don't think that once you get another taste of this life that you won't want to come back? Think of the adventure. The intrigue. The doing something for the greater good."

         "You forgot people shooting at us. The great hours and being stuck in the middle of nowhere with you."

         "I'm not so bad. At least you once thought I was okay. We used to spend a lot of time together."

         "Used to. Past Trey and all of that will stay there."

         "You think? You think I'm going to let you go this time? Without an explanation?"
