Overview

After a business dinner, Callaway Wilde finds herself looking down the business end of a lethal weapon. But her daddy didn't raise her to be victim, and soon she meets the sexy detective, Evan Paley. Together, they set out to solve the mystery of who wants her dead. Along the way, they must resist their own growing desire for each other, or die trying.

Callaway Wilde is beautiful, rich, and smart, but those qualities make her as lonely as they are enviable. They also make her a target, as she discovers one night after a routine business dinner when she finds herself in a life or death confrontation with a hardened criminal. Enter Evan Paley, LAPD detective, who finds himself struggling not just to find her potential killer, but also to resist Callaway herself. As the mystery deepens, bringing in her closest family and a new sister, all of them eager for her inheritance, Cally and Evan must move faster and faster to keep her alive. Callaway's best friend, Ginny, a Hollywood stuntwoman, offers kick ass support as Cally learns the truth about the people she thought loved her, and learns how to love someone new.

About the Author

To quote one producer’s introduction, Shari Shattuck has an IMDB, (internet movie data base) list ‘as long as your arm,’ with more than two hundred television shows, films, mini-series, movies of the week and commercials on her acting resume. A few of her acting credits are the television shows, ‘Dallas,’ ‘Sisters,’ ‘Life Goes On,’ ‘The Young and the Restless,’ and ‘Babylon Five.’ Her film credits include “On Deadly Ground,” with Micheal Caine “Spy Hard,” with Leslie Neilson and “A Man of Passion,” with Anthony Quinn. In addition, she has performed most of Shakespeare’s major female roles on stage as well as a host of other characters, including the lead role in a hit production of “Cabaret.” Shari has also written and directed for the stage. Daily Variety’s rave review of her play, “In Progress,” said, “Shattuck’s delightfully romantic comedy not only displays her talent as a stage performer, but also as a writer.” Her many years of acting and directing all contributed to her sense of drama, comedy and story as a novelist.

Her first book, “Loaded,” was selected by Publisher’s Weekly as one of the Best of 2003. She has since published five novels, co-produced the film “Redemption,” with her husband, survived two fires, four mudslides, many rattlesnake relocations, and being the class-room-rep-parent-association-member for her daughters’ classes. She lives in the National Forest above Los Angeles.
