Romance author Desiree Davidson has been swept into a situation wilder than any she ever dreamed up in her books.
She's hiding out in a rundown house in Delaware, she's changed her name to Destiny Davis, and she's started a whole new life. In fact, she's beginning to think she's safe from the killer hunting for her. Then she meets the muscular, good-looking guy next door, and it's "welcome to the neighborhood!" with an instant chemistry that sets her reeling.
Independent building contractor Duane Urban doesn't bring his sexy new neighbor a cup of sugar -- he offers to help repair her house. And the more he's on the premises, the better it feels just to be near her. But it doesn't take long to figure out that Destiny is hiding something. And while Destiny sees the promise of a new future, her past is coming back with a vengeance.
