Excerpt. Reprinted by permission. All rights reserved.:

Jessica refused to get discouraged. Guys who  blew hot and cold usually turned her off, but Nick  was so adorable, he was worth figuring out. The sky  was like black velvet draped with diamond-bright  stars. It felt good to sit down, even if the  Camaro's seats were narrow and low to the ground. Nick  rolled down the windows and let the gentle cool  air blow in. Jessica glanced at Nick's handsome  profile and wished she could read him better. His  abrupt mood shifts baffled her. But I can handle him,  she decided. It had been Jessica's idea to leave  the carnival. She'd hoped Nick would want to go  somewhere private . . . like his place. For a second  she wondered if she was being too reckless. But  one glimpse of Nick's adorable face from under her  lashes convinced her--Jessica definitely wanted to  be alone with this guy. Nick started the car and  flashed Jessica a quick smile. "You said  something earlier about going somewhere quiet,  Jess--isn't there a late-night coffee bar around here?  Sinbad's or Simba's or something like that?" He  drove expertly down the two-lane road, passing  several cars and dodging oncoming traffic with  ease. Jessica watched him with admiration. He was smooth  and in control, and she liked that. "You're  thinking of Sasha's," Jessica offered  conversationally. "But let's drive for a while and  then decide what we want to do." She would  think of a way to convince him they should find a  more intimate setting than a coffee shop. "Good  idea. It's been a long night." Jessica hoped  that didn't mean he was ready to take her home.  The night was still young, and she was eager to  enjoy it. Jessica stretched her legs and got  comfortable. "Do you mind if I put on the radio?"  Jessica asked him. He shook his head. They had  left all the traffic behind, and the road was  suddenly deserted. SVU was at least ten miles away.  Jessica thought the empty, rural landscape they  passed was kind of eerie in the dark. Nothing but  stark fields sped by. Jessica didn't see one single  house or building. She fiddled with the radio dial  and tried to find a decent station. Opera--yuck.  Country--double yuck. And some loudmouthed  talk-show host. She frowned as she caught garbled bits  of rock and alternative music and a scrap of jazz.  Nothing. Darn. What we need is something  romantic or sexy as background music.She eyed Nick's  glove compartment. I bet he's got some cool CDs  stashed in there. Nick was the kind of guy who'd have  the latest stuff. She darted a quick look at him.  Nick's chiseled face was mysterious, almost aloof  in the moonlight pouring through the  window. Jessica shrugged. She was sure he wouldn't mind her  looking around for his CDs. She struggled as she  pulled on the knob, feeling foolish that she couldn't  figure out how to open a glove compartment.  Turning the knob left and right didn't work  either--maybe she should push in the knob. It clicked. Nick  turned sharply. "Jessica, what are you  doing?" The glove compartment sprang open, and Jessica's  heart hurtled to her throat. Her stomach turned  into a ball of ice. Nestled against the stark white  of the interior was a black, shining object, its  snub nose pointing toward Jessica. Her throat closed  and she couldn't speak. Swiftly Jessica slammed  the glove compartment door shut. But it was too  late. She had already seen the gun.
