In this heartwarming and uplifting addition to March's contemporary Eternity Springs series (after Lover's Leap), CIA agent Jack Davenport realizes that his current mission may be his hardest yet: securing the safety of his beautiful ex-wife, Cat, while resisting her charms and keeping in mind why they divorced. Cat, an investigative journalist whose probe into a dog-fighting ring has dug up some prominent names, is nearly injured when a firebomb blasts her home. So when Cat's mother, Melinda, asks him to whisk Cat to safety, he consents. It doesn't take long, however, for Jack and Cat to feel the familiar tug of attraction and longing, and the peaceful escape they find in Eternity Springs, Col. brings back both the excitement and resentment of a troubled relationship. Meaningful issues, a familiar and wholesome cast of secondary characters, and a substantial romance will please fans and newcomers alike. Agent: Christina Hogrebe, Jane Rotrosen Agency. (Sept.)
