A Jayne Ann Krentz Classic
Writer Kimberly Sawyer was surprised to find a blood red rose on her doorstep. Intrigued by the gift, with no clue to the giver’s identity, she placed it in a wine bottle on her windowsill. As the petals slowly unfolded Kimberly was shocked to see a steel needle piercing the heart of the rose. The subtle, deliberate violence sent a shock of fear down her spine.
Darius Cavenaugh owed Kimberly a debt, though he didn’t expect she’d need his protection. After arriving at her home, he considered the pierced rose a threat and insisted that she move to his Napa Valley estate for her own safety…and so he could spend more time with her. Is the attraction real or is it witchcraft?
