'On the werewolf reservation of Ripple Creek, a killer is on the loose. Three women are dead, their bodies mutilated and faces slashed. A fourth, Neva Grant's twin, lies in the hospital, fighting for her life.
'Psychically linked, Neva shared the horror of her twin attack and makes a silent vow by her sister's hospital bed. She'll hunt down the killer, if Savannah finds the strength to live.
'The Rangers believe the killer is a member of the Sinclair pack, but Neva knows the Sinclairs will never talk to an outsider. To begin the hunt, she first has to seduce a Sinclair - and then she has to keep him interested long enough to find the killer. The only Sinclair not under suspicion is a wolf with a hard drinking, hard loving reputation. But has she got what it takes to attract a man with such experience? Neva doesn't know, but for her sister's sake, she has to try.
'Duncan Sinclair has been called back home to find a killer, and he wants nothing more than to complete his task and get out of the town for which he has no love. Then he's approached by a wolf who obviously has more than seduction on her mind, and he finds himself ensnared in a growing web of desire and deceit.
'As the murders continue and the killer's shadow draws ever closer, Duncan and Neva find themselves having to trust each other in order to survive. But can they trust the emotions flaring between them? Or will the lies of the present, the deeds of the past, and a killer's bloody intentions tear them apart? (Author's blurb)
'Savannah Grant once had the reputation for being the wild sister - but no one, not even her twin, knew just how wild Savannah had once been.
'Now that past has come back to haunt her. For someone is murdering humans in Ripple Creek, and the murders are eerily similar to those she'd witnessed nearly ten years ago. And the man sent in to help with the investigation is the one man Savannah had hoped never to see again. The man who had taken her trust, her heart, and smashed them both.
'Cade Jones is in Ripple Creek to catch the killer who'd escaped his noose ten years ago. What he doesn't expect to find is the woman who had very nearly caused his death. A woman who knew far more than she'd ever let on, a woman who'd slithered from his grasp as easily as the killer. This time, Cade has every intention of discovering what she knows - and every intention of holding her to promises made long ago.
'As the murders continue, it becomes evident that the killer is slowly turning his attention towards Savannah. In order to survive, she finds herself having to trust the one man she'd swore never to trust again.
'But can Cade unravel the clues left from the past and the present in time to save her, or will a killer's need for bloody revenge snatch away his hopes of a future yet again?' (Author's blurb)
