She can't remember when she wasn't afraid. She can't go to the police. And "Olivia Gallagher" is only a day away from fleeing her Idaho wilderness life before biker gang leader Joel Meecum finally catches up with her. So keeping her rugged new neighbor at arm's length is the only safe play. Until Livy can't resist one last hungry chance to feel alive
For U.S. Marshal Nick Brady, taking his vacation next door to Meecum's ex-girlfriend seemed the smartest way to find him. But suddenly, nothing is making sense. How could this feisty, straight-talking brunette ever get mixed up with Meecum's brutal crew? And why is he breaking his oath and getting so close that all he wants is to keep her safe? Now as the clock ticks, Nick and Livy's only chance at escape may be the one they can't survive

Baxter's sexy, suspenseful fourth U.S. Marshals romantic thriller (after One Touch More) doesn't disappoint. Olivia Gallagher—aka former champion skier Kari Hanson—is in hiding from Joel Meecum, the psychotic head of a crooked motorcycle club, who wants nothing more than to see her dead. U.S. Marshal Nick Brady, who's been suspended for a month for his no-holds-barred approach to enforcing the law, is hunting Joel, so he tracks Livy down to a remote Idaho ski town and rents the cabin next door in, determined to have the frightened ski instructor lead him right to his personal most-wanted criminal. What he doesn't expect is to fall hard for the feisty beauty. Baxter's characters have an appealing mix of heat and sweet, complemented by a well-plotted, intense story. This thrill-ride story will have readers eagerly awaiting the next installment of this series. Agent: Natanya Wheeler, Nancy Yost Literary. (June)
