Lamb, whose last book, Caught in the Act (2003) was a RITA Award finalist, is back in fine form with another novel of romantic suspense. Alaina Chancellor, a single mom, has been on the run since she was a teenager. First she was only hiding from the rapist who impregnated her, but after she accidentally killed a murderer he sent after her she is also on the run from the law. Detective Mitch Kane, who lost access to his own child, is hired by millionaire Layton Keller to find the heartless woman who took his child away. When Mitch finally tracks Alaina down he believes the worst of her, but as things heat up he finds that she is more like a fierce lioness who will do anything to protect her cub than a vengeful woman. Top-notch suspense and believable characters in an action-packed plot will enthrall readers. Like Tami Hoag and Iris Johansen, Lamb weaves the textures of romance and suspense together in a satisfying read. Diana Tixier Herald
