Secrets are more intense in the heat of a Texas night in this suspenseful novel of love, murder and small town scandal.
One stormy night, businesswoman Melinda Amery jolts to consciousness to find herself trapped in magnetic Lieutenant Grady Sloan's unwavering deep blue gaze.
Grady wants answers about a murder. But Melinda has none.
Melinda says she can't remember what happened the previous night. Grady knows two things for sure. That a beloved preacher's daughter is dead. And that Melinda's lawyer father once manipulated Grady to set a murderer free.
Grady is the kind of cop who won't stop until he gets answers. With his job on the line, he needs to uncover the truth. Is Melinda's amnesia real? Or is she hiding a terrible secret?
To prove she's not a murderer, Melinda will need to uncover the secret hidden in her nightmare-shredded memory. And prove to Grady that she's not her father's daughter.
But when someone tries to kill Melinda, Grady can't help wanting to protect her. But when Melinda's memory starts to return, the secret it reveals threatens to destroy them both.
