Everyone has secrets. Some are deadly.

Event planner Joanna McNamee is scrambling to ensure her father’s company Christmas party goes smoothly, but one disaster after another has her convinced someone is trying to sabotage her career. With the help of a man from her past who she’s still not sure she can trust, she puts the pieces together and realizes her business is the least of her problems—a cold-blooded killer is out to destroy her father and take her as his prized possession.

The last thing Deputy Ryker Kane expects is for a simple truck hijacking to throw him back into the middle of the Black Widow case he’d been forced to abandon, not to mention right into the arms of the sweet woman he’d let walk away ten years earlier. When he finds Jo Jo kidnapped and drugged, he has to use all his wits and skills honed from years as a detective to save them both. Despite the secrets between them, Ryker’s bound and determined to give them a second chance at love.

About the author

Melissa Ohnoutka

Melissa Ohnoutka's interest in writing started back in the seventh grade as a way to escape and create new worlds where she was in control. To this day, she finds something magical about being in total control. In her stories anyway. Melissa became serious about the publishing aspect of her career after finishing her third manuscript and attending her first Romance Writers of America Conference in Dallas, Texas back in 2007. That experience hooked her for life. Finding others to share her love of writing, so eager and willing to support and encourage her madness, was the best adrenaline rush ever. Although Romantic Suspense will forever be her first love, she also enjoys writing young adult and children’s books for a change of pace. An element of suspense and mystery drive these stories as well. Born and raised in Texas, she loves to dream big and believes good conquers all. Writing may be her passion, but her husband and three kids will always be her greatest blessings. When not hard at work crafting her next novel, Melissa loves spending time with the family, camping, snow skiing, and to inspire her pesky creative muse, photography and painting. Melissa is an active member of Romance Writers of America®, RWA Kiss of Death and Northwest Houston RWA®
