From the book’s back cover
The paper found in a terrorist’s pocket holds six names—and single mom Rachel Reynolds is the only one on the list who’s still alive. Private security contractor Jack Sergeant wants to ensure she stays that way, but first he must convince Rachel the danger is real.
Rachel can’t believe that someone’s after her…until she’s grazed by a shooter’s bullet. She won’t take chances with her son’s life—but she doesn’t want Jack getting too close. Yet as Jack comes to care for both mother and son, the target he’s after is a family to love and protect for a lifetime.
Rachel Reynolds, who owns a non-profit, turns up on a terrorist’s hit list. A young widow with a small child goes on the run, protected by a former FBI, Jack. Again Barritt writes excellent suspense and well rounded characters. One thing after another prevents Rachel from overcoming her fear. There’s a surprise in practically every chapter. Keeps you guessing till the end.
