From the moment Miranda Major realized the only thing she had of her own was her name, she had a fire in her heart to create a life of success, achievement, financial security. and most important of all, a home of her own. In her drive to succeed, she loses sight of the most essential items on her list.
Suddenly a stalker rips apart her professional success and her sense of security. A whim, a desperate need to escape the man trying to kill her, takes her from the sun drenched beaches of South Florida to the farmland of North Florida. Tractors, trucks and tall, lean men with slow southern drawls replace the tanned, buffed urban males she had known.
A choice, a country road taken, a cantankerous donkey and a green eyed man with a voice meant for hot sultry nights, challenge her to stop running. The fire that had driven her to succeed against all odds blazes again. She was not a woman to be beaten by fate.
The stalker waits in the shadows ready to strike again....
And the man with the voice to whisper secrets at midnight stands beside her. Could she believe the life she had always wanted was only a heartbeat away?
Lucy loved her life more than any man. Alex lived in two worlds, a master in both.
Danger and Death brought them together - City versus Country.
Lucy Winters had created her life out of the ashes of her birth. Because Randi, the sister of her heart needed her, she left behind the slick, urban landscape of South Florida she loved and journeyed into the farmland of North Florida.
There, she had to trade her stilettos for work boots bought in a farm store, of all places.
Alex Weston was a third generation farmer. He worked the land he loved and respected. Yet, he enjoyed fine dining, handmade suits and traveling when the mood struck.
Instead of choosing between the worlds, he made a place for himself in both.
Suddenly, Death came calling again. For the first time in her life, Lucy realizes she is not alone. Alex stands beside her, guarding her back.
A new life, a man she can trust offers an unexpected future. Can Lucy embrace the Fire or continue to play the game?
