All the new widow Jessica Kingsbury wants is a quiet new life away from the Hollywood spotlight that made her infamous. But the paparazzi aren't the only ones interested in dredging every sordid secret they can from her past.
All FBI agent Noah Grayson wants is to uncover the mastermind of a blackmail plot that touches the nation's highest ranking politicians. All the clues lead straight to Jessica's late husband, who died under suspicious circumstances. Though his instincts tell him that that the beautiful model is no criminal, he can't help but wonder how much she knew about her dead husband's business dealings.
Then a diamond necklace with ties to the blackmailer is stolen from the Kingsbury mansion, and Jessica begins receiving death threats. She must decide whether she can trust the handsome agent with her secrets and her life, not to mention her heart.
What a chase for the justice, or just normal, peaceful life..
The story is full of secrets, everyone has them. You cannot for a minute count that you can trust one person, that they are telling the truth, or revealing their true identity or a goal. As the story unfolds, more secrets come to light, more conspiracy is revealed, more true identities shown.
The story starts a bit slow, while the stage is set up. But when the chase across the country starts, the action starts, the pace in the story picks up as well. Puzzling story indeed, with so many twists and turns in the plot, you never knew what was going to happen next.
The romance between Noah and Jessica was steamy. Noah had been admiring her ever since the case was introduced to him, Jessica's attraction was rather instant, but understandable. Noah, the all American, clean cut, good guy who was true, honest, and kind, was all Jessica needed after all the madness.
Fascinating suspense story, where you truly can questions everyone's motives, mixed with life saving and life altering romance
