Overview

No one creates heart-stopping romantic suspense like Janelle Taylor. Now, the New York Times bestselling author delivers the compelling, passionate tale of a couple fighting to protect the child who has brought them together--and plunged their lives into danger. . .

No One To Trust

Single D.C. caterer Jordan Curry has no idea what to do with a four-year-old boy, but she does know one thing: her best friend Phoebe says her son is in mortal danger. Before vanishing into a stormy night, Phoebe entrusts Jordan with her child's life--and makes her swear not to tell a soul where he is. At first, keeping imaginative Spencer occupied seems more difficult than keeping him safe, especially when handsome architect Beau Somerville pops up unexpectedly. Jordan half expects Beau to run in the other direction, but he seems drawn to the boy. Before long, Jordan finds herself falling for Beau's gentle strength--a strength she needs to trust when she hears that Phoebe has been brutally murdered. . .

Nowhere To Hide

Beau understands what it means to protect your family. He failed that duty once, and the price has haunted him always. Now, he'll do whatever it takes to keep Jordan and Spencer safe from the shadowy stranger who has started asking questions. . .following them. . .getting far too close. Spiriting woman and child away to a deserted house on the Outer Banks, Beau gives them a chance to forget grim reality, to spend time together--almost as a family. But they soon realize that they might not be alone at the isolated seaside haven. With the weather turning ominous and no way back to the mainland, Beau fears that he may have delivered them all into the hands of a cold-blooded killer. . .

Editorial Reviews

Publishers Weekly
Writing in a style uncluttered by romance clich s and trite descriptions, Taylor (In Too Deep) delivers a well-crafted romantic suspense set in Washington, D.C. When Jordan Curry's best friend, Phoebe, asks Jordan to take care of Spencer, her four-year-old son, for a while, Jordan doesn't hesitate, even though Phoebe's ominous parting words "Nobody can know he's here... it's a matter of life and death" leave Jordan confused and on edge. Jordan, a successful caterer, hasn't a clue how to feed or entertain a small child, so she turns to her blind date, wealthy workaholic Beau Somerville, for pointers. Beau, whose wife and son died when he lost control of the small plane he'd been piloting, is willing to help, but he doesn't want to get emotionally involved. He manages to keep his distance until he learns that Spencer's parents have been murdered and it appears that Jordan and Spencer are next on the killer's hit list. In an effort to keep them safe, and to help himself come to terms with the loss of his own family, Beau moves Jordan and Spencer to a remote beach house where his protective skills are put to the test. Although the suspense in this offering is on the thin side, well-drawn characters and a richly developed romantic subplot more than make up for the loss.
