About the Book:


Tall, lean and headstrong, FBI agent Kilraven lives by his own rules. And one of those rules includes keeping his hands off Jacobsville’s resident sweetheart, Winnie Sinclair, no matter the temptation. Shy and innocent, Winnie couldn’t handle a man like him – a merciless man with a haunted past. And this small town may hold not only the woman he fights to resist, but the answers to a cold case that is very personal to Kilraven….

Winnie has had her own share of sorrow and senses Kilraven’s pain. Even though she tries to deny it, the gentle 911 operator feels a connection with the darkly handsome agent. When he makes the disturbing discovery that her family’s unsavory past might have a bearing on his case, Winnie is determined to help him crack it…and the ice around his heart.

As they combine forces in a dangerous investigation, the stakes rise ever higher. Winnie’s life is on the line, and she’ll need Kilraven more than ever. But if they are to have a future together, her ruthless Texan will need to confront his past and risk it all for their love.
About the Author:

Today the New York Times bestselling author of over 100 novels, Diana Palmer is renowned as one of North America's top 10 romance writers.  When she published her first novel in 1979, fans immediately fell in love with her sensual, charming romances.

A die-hard romantic who married her husband five days after they met, Diana says that she wrote her first book at age 13--and has been hooked ever since.

Palmer began her career as a newspaper reporter and columnist, a path she followed for 16 years.  When her novel Heather's Song was purchased by Silhouette Books in 1980, she retired her press badge and devoted herself to a life filled with romance and pening the page-turners her readers find so hard to put down.

This dynamic woman graduated summa cum laude from Piedmont College in 1995--at the age of 49!  "College was an experience I'll always cherish," she says.  "Now I fund a scholarship at my alma mater in my late father's name--he'd laugh to know that it's a science scholarship, when I can barely do math!  I also fund a nursing scholarship at the Oglala Lakota College in Kyle, South Dakota, in the name of my mother, who was a nurse."

Palmer is a member of the Native American Rights Fund, the American Museum of Natural History, the National Cattleman's Association, the Planetary Society, the Georgia Sheriff's Association and numerous conservation and charitable organizations.  Her hobbies include gardening, knitting, quilting, anthropology, astronomy and music.

Palmer lives in northeast Georgia with her husband, James Kyle, and a menagerie of animals that includes four dogs, four cats, assorted exotic lizards and an emu named George.  She loves Spanish-language soap operas and fast cars--her latest is a Jaguar.
