Mattie and her guy pal (and one-time fling) Hutch are on the beach in front of their rented house when the local sheriff catches sight of Hutch, who is in the water even though the beach is closed to swimming. Wyatt is about to call out to Hutch when Mattie speaks first.

Wyatt spun around and blinked the woman into focus. Long, blonde hair, straight and full of platinum streaks. A teeny white tank top that left little to the imagination but made him imagine all sorts of things anyway. Faded jeans, torn at the knees and too long for her legs. Only her toes were visible past the hem, and the cotton candy pink polish on her toenails couldn’t be responsible for making his mouth water like this.

He did the only thing dumber than turning his back on the guy in the water. He climbed off the four-wheeler, pushed his wide-brimmed sheriff’s hat down on his brow, and let himself get closer to her.

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.
