Spencer Gordon wasn't expecting the call from Kathleen Drake, a woman she'd spent years keeping safe as part of the Witness Protection program. The terrified woman begged Spencer for help. Taking a leave of absence from her job with Homeland Security, Spencer hurries to her friend's side. But the threat to Kathleen is larger than Spencer bargained for, forcing a call for reinforcements. She didn't count on being attracted to Kathleen's arrogant, annoying, and sexy as hell brother.
Searching for his sister has been a driving force for businessman and multimillionaire Jameson Drake. When a woman approaches him out of the blue claiming to know where his sister is, he has no choice but to go along. He'd imagined all kinds of wild theories about what happened to Kathleen but the truth is more shocking than even he'd ever guessed.
Forced to work together to keep Kathleen safe, Spencer strikes an uneasy alliance with Drake, wavering between wanting to shoot him, and needing to kiss him. Other than their mutual attraction, the one thing they do have in common is their desire to keep Kathleen safe. If only the mob didn't have a different agenda.
About the Author
She grew up in Nova Scotia, Canada, in a house filled with books and readers. Some of her fondest memories are of reading in the same room with her mother and sisters, arguing about whose turn it was to make tea. No one wanted to put their book down!
She was introduced to different genres because of her parents' habit of leaving books all over the house. Her mother read romance and her father read thrillers.
After two degrees, a career as a librarian, a husband and two kids, she attended a workshop in Tuscany that lit that spark for writing again. She's been pounding the keyboard ever since.
Lori writes what she calls romantic thrillers as she's a true product of her upbringing!
Lori's work has won or been a finalist more than a dozen times in various contests and she was three-time Kiss of Death Daphne winner for her Callahan Security series.
She lives in New Jersey with her husband, two children, a crazy dog, and a cranky cat.
