Fleeing New York City after a divorce and the trauma of witnessing a fatal robbery, New Englander Jemma Abbott finds herself stranded in a North Dakota snowstorm with an enigmatic stranger. Lawman Wyatt Kelly doesn't believe Jemma's claim that she's in North Dakota to visit an old friend and her fiancé, who just happens to be Wyatt's cousin. Too much about her story doesn't make sense. Despite Wyatt's suspicions and Jemma's reluctance to get romantically involved again, the two are drawn together by an almost irresistible attraction.
Their encounter is cut short when Wyatt's cousin is severely injured in a hit-and-run. When Wyatt realizes the hit-and-run was no accident, but rather the result of a murderous conspiracy that has Jemma in its crosshairs, he rushes to Boston to protect her and bring the perpetrators to justice. But neither friends nor foes are precisely what they seem...
Pamela wrote a book that is awesome. There is something in it for anyone who loves to read a variety of scenarios.
Jemma Abbott was a woman who learned that she couldn't trust anyone. She couldn't tell friend from foe in this story, all she knew was that bad things kept happening to her-first her father committed suicide, her mother was in indifferent to her, and then she married a man who wanted to control her-next came the miscarriage which led to a divorce. So no wonder was she gun shy when she met Wyatt Kelly, a man who seemed one thing and acted differently.
Wyatt couldn't figure out who this woman, that acted like he was jack the ripper, was. She was the one who contacted him, or rather was trying to contact his cousin. Jemma had secrets, secrets that could help get her killed. When his cousin ended up getting hurt by just being associated with Jemma, Wyatt put two and two together and came up with murder and betrayal.
Wyatt would do anything to keep Jemma safe, but with her trust issues, would she allow him to get close enough to do it? Jemma knew she was in trouble but she couldn't figure out why people, or better yet, her ex-husband and friend was trying to kill her. She knew she needed Wyatt's help, but with past betrayals could she trust her heart to know?
This book has everything: betrayal, danger, conspiracy, but it also has love, loyalty and a hero to come to your rescue.
