For over a decade, a killer has been waiting, silent as death and . . .
GUILTY AS SIN
Fourteen years ago, Kate Beckett was a teenager more interested in summer romance than babysitting. Then the unthinkable happened: her younger brother was kidnapped and murdered on her watch. Now she is an advocate for missing children, and her newest case brings her back to the small town where she lost her brother-and where she left behind the first boy she ever loved.
Tommy Ibarra's world fell apart after Kate broke his heart, and he's spent his adult life making sure that he'll never be vulnerable again. When a teenage girl vanishes, he offers his expertise as a high tech security expert to help find her. Although he's determined to keep his distance from Kate, it isn't long before he's falling under her spell all over again.
As they race against the clock, their investigation leads to a brutal killer with a shocking connection to Kate's tragic past. And this time, the killer has Kate firmly in his sights.
Alden (Run from Fear) captivates readers from the first page as lovers reunite 14 years after tragedy destroyed their first try at romance. Kate Beckett's younger brother, Michael, was abducted and murdered when she was only 16; she was supposed to be watching him but had snuck out to meet with her boyfriend, Tommy Ibarra. Kate's father, a powerful senator, ended Tommy's college career in revenge, and Tommy never forgave Kate for abandoning him in a vain effort to please her father. Now 30, Kate works for a foundation that helps find missing children. She returns to the Idaho town where Michael was abducted to help search for a missing girl, Tricia Fuller, and is unprepared to encounter Tommy, who's now a security expert. As they help local law enforcement locate Tricia, they slowly face their tragic past together. The suspense is evenly matched with romance as Kate and Tommy link the present-day abduction with those of the past. Explicitly sensuous love scenes and expert pacing will keep readers riveted.
Alden's characters are always complex and believable. Her love stories intense and steamy. And her mysteries keep you on the edge of your seat. Alden delivered another winner!
