Description-


  • Everyone believes Amanda Stowe killed her husband--except for a mysterious woman who promises her evidence will clear Amanda's name. Amanda has to meet her...even if it means jumping bail and praying she'll reach Alaska before law enforcement closes in.

    If Chance Walker has learned anything as a bounty hunter, it's that only the guilty run. When he captures Amanda, he's ready to bring her to justice. But attacks against Amanda make Chance reconsider. What if his target really is innocent? Will Chance put his life on the line to find the truth--and keep Amanda safe?

Excerpts-
  • From the book



    Amanda Stowe sprinted past the evergreen garlands tucked around the doorways of the bed-and-breakfast. Who would have believed that a building that stretched the length of two city blocks could be found out here smack-dab in the middle of nowhere? The grand and imposing hotel had been at least an hour's drive north of Fairbanks. But the isolation was probably its biggest draw--Alaskan wilderness the safe way.

    Amanda didn't feel very safe at the moment.

    She barely registered the fresh scent of pine that tickled her nose as she raced on, ducking down one hall, running as fast as she could down another. Turning the last corner, her eyes widened as she spied the gaily decorated Christmas tree standing like a sentinel at the top of the stairs and prayed she'd be able to stop before she slid into it like a baseball player stealing home plate.

    Slow down. Get control of yourself.

    She heeded the stern voice in her head and stopped running before she drew unwanted attention to herself or, worse, crashed into the tree looming now only a couple dozen yards ahead.

    She stole a moment to check behind her. She was still safe. The hall was empty.

    Panting heavily, she tried to catch her breath and continued to move forward. This time instead of an all-out run, she chose what others might call "a purposeful stride." If anyone saw her hurry by, they'd probably think she was late for breakfast or, maybe, for one of the many Alaskan tours the facility offered.

    She clenched her sweaty palms and forced herself to try and breathe normally. She could do this. She just had to stay composed and think things through calmly and logically.

    Amanda groaned aloud when she realized she was subconsciously humming under her breath to the piped-in Christmas music in spite of her high level of anxiety.

    Christmas was the last thing that should be on her mind. She was running for her life.

    She threw another nervous glance over her shoulder. She paused in the hallway just long enough to turn a doorknob in search of the impossible--an unlocked door.

    She couldn't believe her luck when the knob twisted beneath her grasp and the door eased open. She thanked the good Lord that this bed-and-breakfast was tucked away in a remote area of Alaska. She'd never have found sanctuary without a magnetic key card back in "civilization."

    She ducked into the dimly lit room and crouched in a ball at the foot of the bed. Pulling her coat over her head, she hoped if the man following her did happen to glance inside that he'd mistake her for nothing more than a discarded blanket in the darkness.

    Agonizing seconds beat past as she stared with one eye out of a buttonhole, never taking her attention from the door.

    Nothing.

    No one.

    A wave of hope washed over her, and a smile tugged at the corner of her mouth. She counted silently to herself. One one hundred. Two one hundred. Three one hundred. Still nothing.

    She'd given him the slip. She was sure of it. Or not.

    Before she dared to celebrate, she heard footsteps pause outside the room.

    Seconds felt like hours as she held her breath. She wished she could just close her eyes and disappear. She didn't dare move or even blink.

    Go away. Please, Lord, don't let him find me.

    The doorknob turned.

    Amanda's shoulders sagged with defeat. This couldn't be happening. She couldn't be this close and have to watch it all slip right through her fingers.

    Backlit from the light in the hall, the man's shadow preceded him into the room, stretching so far across the floor in front of her that she swore he must be...
