RITA Winner, Best Short Contemporary Romance Novel.
Disguise. Subterfuge. They were not Tannis Winter's forte'. But she was determined to finish her Thesis, and that meant immersing herself in her subject--the homeless culture. But when a mysterious derelict begins to stalk her, she shoves him into the path of a police car and flees into the safety of suburbia and her family.
Newly elected City Councilmember Dillon James leaves the police station bruised but determined. His run in with a quick-witted, skittish bag lady convinces him that his undercover work to save programs that protect the poor and vulnerable is a worthy endeavor.
Can these two emotionally wary people learn to trust each other? Is healing their hearts even possible? Or will their predilection for disguise sabotage a love based on far more than simple desire?
