GENRE: Romantic Suspense
Haunted by her best friend's disappearance, always practical Rowan Quaide lives a life of cold logic. As an intelligence analyst, her world is ruled by who has the best strategy and Ro's reasoned control makes her Queen.
A Chance encounter with a man from her past stretches the bounds of reason and throws her into a game of dark deception and danger. With the past creeping from her nightmares into her reality, Ro pits herself against the monster determined to destroy the new love she's found.
As the intel gets more and more disturbing and events begin to spin out of control, she must rely on her instincts and cling to an unreasonable truth, or allow logic to tear her apart.
Something was missing. Something important. Rowan turned, her eyes wide and straining, searching the darkness. Her ears rang with her panting breath and surging heart. It was too dark. She couldn’t find anything in the pitch black that seemed to claw at her. She needed light. Just a little light, and she could find it. Find whatever was missing.
A sudden urgency gripped her, pulled and pushed at her to do something. Her feet, unbidden, pounded into the unknown, carrying her with them. She ran on and on, for endless miles, unaware of where she was going, of where her twists and turns would take her. She knew only that something was missing and she had to find it.
A scream shattered the nothing.
Rowan jerked to a stop as the fine hairs on her arms and neck prickled. Fear slid across her chest, seizing her breath. She knew that scream, felt the terror burning in it as though it were her own. Lexie. She had to find Lexie. She ran again, feet pounding faster and harder than before, frantic to get to her friend. But the darkness blinded her, tripped her, whipped at her. Something caught her ankle, sending her tumbling down, further into the abyss, with her friend’s screams reaching after her.
