After fleeing her abusive husband, Elizabeth Heart got a tattoo of a phoenix, symbolizing her rebirth. Four years later, her work in dermal pigmentation is helping others deal with disfiguring scars. Content in her new life, the last thing she needs is a colleague with roving hands. A jab to the nose puts a halt to the unwanted advance. But the tall, handsome-as-sin chauffeur who comes to her rescue isn't as easy to deal with. Not when his dimples make her pulse stumble and his smoke gray eyes invade her dreams. He promises not to box her in; no corners, no strings. But everyone has a hidden agenda, and when he touches her, he has her wanting dangerous things. Is she ready to risk her hard-earned independence and possibly her very identity, again?
Still worked up over an argument with his teenage daughter earlier in the day, Tyler Stone is in no mood for diplomacy when his client accosts a woman in the back of his limousine. Leaving the bum to find his own way home is simple justice. But what to do about the woman with hair like fire and an attitude to match is more complicated. There's no mistaking her closely guarded heart, yet her compassion and vulnerability touch him in a way he can't ignore. Fate would seem to be on his side when he saves her kitchen from certain disaster and discovers a breach in her defenses. But does he have what it takes to heal the emotional scars that keep her phoenix heart from soaring?

Cindy Hiday got her break in publishing when she "jumped from a perfectly good plane" and wrote about the experience in a community college workshop. The Oregonian bought theessay, "One jump makes a proud skydiver," even though it was 200 words too long. She hasn't jumped out of anymore airplanes, but has gone on to publish and win awards in romantic fiction, and contributed a monthly newsletter column, "Working the Web," for the local Romance Writers of America. When her Mt. Hood Community College mentor retired in 1999, she stepped forward as part-time instructor of the Professional Novel & Memoir Writingprogram. She divides her time between mentoring the latest group of writing talent and working on the next novel. Currently a member of Willamette Writers, Cindy lives in Oregon with her husband and four-legged friends.
