Random House, Inc.
Skillfully blending searing suspense, characters with grit and heart, and a dynamic plot, bestselling author Julie Garwood has written another electrifying novel of romantic suspense.

Kate MacKenna doesn’t have a bad bone in her body–or an enemy in the world. A woman who barely knew her father and has just lost her mother, Kate is a loving sister, a savvy business owner, and an unpretentious beauty who radiates kindness. So why are bombs igniting everywhere she goes?

The first explosion brings her face-to-face with a handsome Charleston police detective. The second one sends her into the arms of her best friend’s brother–a Boston cop who’s a little too reckless and way too charming for comfort. But Dylan Buchanan won’t let emotion prevent him from doing his job: Someone is trying to kill Kate, and Dylan is the only one standing between her and the monster who wants her dead. For Kate to understand the danger, she must learn all about desire–desire for pleasure, desire for power, and someone’s desire to kill.

Baker & Taylor
Struggling to keep her business afloat and her younger sisters together while completing graduate school in the wake of her mother's sudden death, Kate McKenna becomes caught up in a romantic fling with her best friend's brother, Dylan, a situation that is complicated when Kate begins to realize that someone wants her dead. 275,000 first printing.

Living a successful life in Charleston, South Carolina, Kate MacKenna has always been able to turn her challenges into triumphs. But now the fates seem to be lining up against her... in a lethal fashion.
While attending a reception at a friends's estate for a controversial artist, Kate is nearly killed by an explosion. Once home, Kate is hit with the news that the prosperous fragrance company she has nurtured from the ground up is in jeopardy: It turns out that her late mother used the business as collateral for a huge loan, and full payment is due in three weeks. Kate's still reeling from this devastating news when her younger sister's volatile ex-boyfriend shows up and threatens her.
Then Kate receives a call from her best friend, Jordan Buchanan, who is hospitalized and scheduled for surgery in Boston. Though stretched to the limit, Kate immediately rushes to her side. Once she knows that Jordan is going to be fine, Kate abandons her calm facade and allows herself a major meltdown, doing something that is totally uncharacteristic: She has a one-night with Jordan's brother Dylan.
Coming to her senses, Kate returns home determined to get back on track and save her business. But the mishaps keep coming.
At Jordan's insistence, Dylan checks up on Kate. He's convinced she's merely having a spell of bad luck - until he discovers how many people want Kate MacKenna dead.
