National bestselling author Roxanne St. Claire joins the Forever list with this thrilling novel, the first in a romantic suspense trilogy
Samantha McDowell is working her way through law school as a waitress, her life finally on track to become a public defender. While at the restaurant, she witnesses the murder of media star Joshua Sterling. As a witness, her life is in danger so she turns to her college friend Vivi Angelino. Unfortunately, help comes in the form of Vivi's brother, Zach, a man Samantha is alternately terrified of and magnetically attracted to. The only reason Zach agrees to offer 24/7 protection of Samantha McDowell is to help the new business he and Vivi are building. Even if she can't pay much, a security gig for a criminal witness would look good for the Guardian Angelinos and help get them other clients. Wasn't that the only reason? Or was it the chance to be around a seriously hot woman whose company he had enjoyed for a brief time before he left for Iraq? The only problem is that keeping Samantha safe gets increasingly difficult. Almost as difficult as keeping his hands off her.
St Claire touches off a bold new series with this taut, complex and intelligent page-turner, skilfully blending deep romance with labyrinthine mystery and hard-boiled action. Readers will thrill to this dynamic tale and its nonstop action, sweet and sexy romance, lively characters and celebration of family and forgiveness - PUBLISHERS WEEKLY
