Maddie Fitzgerald, owner of a small advertising agency in St. Louis, travels to New Orleans in hopes of snaring a large account to save her struggling company. While there, a man breaks into her hotel room and tries to kill her but Maddie manages to escape. Only to be followed by FBI agents, headed by Special Agent Sam McCabe, who's tracking a serial killer and thinks Maddie is his next victim. Maddie does not trust the FBI and refuses their offer of protection, but when someone shoots at her in her apartment complex, she catapults into McCabe's arms and agrees to be bait for the killer. A treacherous game of cat and mouse follows, placing both in peril, along with the added danger of their fatal attraction for one another.
Although this plot has been done more than a few times, Karen Robards adds an extra zing all her own. Filled with hot romance and spine-tingling suspense, this is a fun read for mystery and romance lovers alike.
