Emma Ruiz knows her father is innocent. But that doesn't help her convince the law--not even smoking hot U.S. Marshal Landon McCabe. When McCabe bangs on her door demanding information about how her cancer-stricken father escaped from federal prison, she'll have to distract him somehow--it may as well be with a stolen kiss.
Landon gets why Emma isn't saying all she knows. What he doesn't understand is why he's putting his reputation, his case, and his badge on the line for a gorgeous person of interest. Much as he'd love to, he can't let Emma play him. The stakes are higher than either of them can guess. The only way to survive is to trust their instincts. But their instincts want more than one kiss. . .

Baxter fills the second U.S. Marshals romantic thriller (after One Night More) with page-turning, rip-roaring action. Party girl and computer expert Emma Ruiz is absolutely determined to make someone pay for the injustices done to her father. Unfortunately, she doesn’t think twice about stealing millions of dollars from powerful crime boss Teyo Sousa to fund her plan, and even though he was a childhood friend of her father’s, he wants revenge. U.S. Marshal Landon McCabe was the one who put Emma’s father in prison six years earlier—and he’s certain that she helped him break out. But Landon’s been in love with Emma since he first met her, and with Teyo hot on her trail, Landon’s determined to keep her safe. As Emma and Landon try to stay alive, their smoldering romance will captivate readers and leave them impatient for the next title in the series. Agent: Natanya Wheeler, Nancy Yost Literary Agency.
