Mattie and her guy pal (and one-time fling) Hutch just arrived at their rented beach house. There’s a storm closing in, and Mattie is not happy with the encroaching water and howling wind.

“So do you want to be on the top or on the bottom?” Hutch asked, throwing himself on a well-appointed king-sized bed with unreasonable exuberance.

“Excuse me?”

He grinned and pointed to the ceiling. “Upstairs or downstairs master?”

“I’ll take the one downstairs.” She opted for privacy. If she took the room on the main floor, Hutch would drive her crazy with his constant pillaging of the kitchen. And wouldn’t the top half of the house blow away before the bottom? She didn’t ask.

“We could share.” Hutch sprawled over the bed, rumpling the deep blue coverlet in a way that suggested sex even more than his words did. Lovemaking without mercy, slow and lazy, like his grin, wild and out of control, like he did just about everything else. But she didn’t need her imagination to ponder the power of his body in bed or the tenderness behind his savagery.

Her memory worked just fine.

RUN TO YOU | contemporary romantic suspense

Mattie James can’t pinpoint exactly when she lost control of her life, but the moment she decided to take it back made the front page of the local paper. Desperate to dodge the fallout— and the tabloids—she jumps at the chance to spend an off-season week in a tiny resort community by the sea. Making the trip with her ex-lover is a complication she can live with; coming face to face with a dead woman is not.

The last thing Sheriff Wyatt Reed expected to find on the storm-ravaged beach was a beautiful blonde with a jealous sidekick, but one look at Mattie left him wanting more. Their first date takes an ominous turn when he gets the call that a woman was found murdered. With a killer on the loose and a troubling lack of suspects or motive, Wyatt has to put his feelings aside to focus on the case. But his vow not to become personally involved is shattered when he discovers Mattie’s life is on the line, and this time the truth leaves her with a deadly choice . . . and nowhere to run.
