Publisher Description

A savvy businesswoman and an assassin struggle to outwit the FBI -- and each other -- in this #1 NYT bestselling story of sizzling romance and shocking deception from "a masterful storyteller" (USA Today).

When Jordie Bennet and Shaw Kinnard lock eyes across a disreputable backwater bar, something sparks. Shaw is a man who gives off a dangerous vibe that makes other men stand back and women take notice. No one feels this more strongly than Jordie, a woman who doesn't belong in a seedy dive on the banks of a bayou. But here she is . . . and Shaw Kinnard is here to kill her.

As Shaw takes aim, Jordie is certain her time has come. Instead, Shaw has other plans. He abducts Jordie, hoping to get his hands on the $30 million her brother has stolen. But he isn't the only one: Jordie's brother made a deal with the FBI, but his ruthless boss will stop at nothing to find the money first. Now on the run from the feds and a notorious criminal, Jordie and Shaw must rely on their wits to stay alive.

Miles away from civilization and surrounded by swampland, Jordie and Shaw play each other against their common enemies. Jordie's only chance of survival is to outwit Shaw, but he suspects her from the start. Was she in on her brother's scam, or is she an innocent pawn in this deadly vendetta? And just how valuable is her life to Shaw, her remorseless and manipulative captor? Burning for answers -- and for each other -- this unlikely pair ultimately make a desperate move that could be their last.

With nonstop plot twists and the sizzling sexual tension that has made Sandra Brown one of the world's most beloved authors, Sting will keep you on the edge of your seat until its final pages.

Pretty good!

Stick with it til the end

I read this book for a book club. I'm glad that I read it but I'm afraid that this would have been a completely different review if I hadn't pushed myself to keep reading. It wasn't until I hit 53% that I really connected with the book and started liking it. Actually liking it isn't strong enough, I started loving it and couldn't put it down! Being our monthly read for the book club I felt obligated to push through and I'm so glad that I did. Jordie and Shaw are difficult characters to really connect with. At first it was almost like they were just playing their role but not really filling it. It's hard to really describe, maybe they were more 2 dimensional but then everything changes and they turn into these wonderful characters that you are connecting with and breathless as they go through the story. I wouldn't normally recommend reading a book that took that long for me to get into but I promise, it's worth sticking with it in the end.
