This is a terrific suspense story with a romance to die for……and they almost do! It has the perfect mesh of blue collar workers and the ultra rich. I didn’t think it could work but it did. From driving big rigs to taking a helicopter to work, it’s all there. But, among the fun is some deadly seriousness concerning drugs, terrorists and weapons. Even though the FBI is involved, no one is sure who can be trusted and who is on El Jefe’s payroll. This story is fast paced with some serious action….not always in the bedroom. I totally loved it and look forward to reading about Lincoln Cain’s partner. Oh yeah, before I forget, there’s even some hot bikers that work on the good side! Okay, they also have regular jobs like being a dentist. There is also betrayal and lifelong friends. If you enjoy suspense, this book is for you. I can’t imagine anyone not finding something to love about this story!
Carly just knows she should have come home sooner to help her grandfather but she didn’t and know she’s facing issues totally blind. Why would someone kill one of her truck drivers? And, her grandfather always kept the business in the black so where did all the money go? Carly’s grandfather asked Lincoln Cain to watch over her. Lincoln takes this seriously and soon realizes that his feelings for Carly are more than he expected. After a failed marriage, he has no desire for a serious relationship. At this time in her life, neither does Carly. So, can they keep their relationship platonic or as things heat up in the trucking business will they also heat up behind closed doors?
New York Times bestselling author Kat Martin raises chills as danger stalks a woman determined to make it in a man’s world . . .
Five weeks ago Carly Drake stood at her grandfather’s grave. Now she’s burying Drake Trucking’s top driver, and the cops have no leads on the hijacking or murder. Faced with bankruptcy, phone threats and the fear of failure, Carly has to team up with the last man she wants to owe—Lincoln Cain.
Cain is magnetic, powerful, controlling—and hiding more than one secret. He promised Carly’s granddad he’d protect her. The old man took a chance on him when he was nothing but a kid with a record, and now he’s the multi-millionaire owner of a rival firm.
But Linc’s money can’t protect Carly from the men who’ll do anything to shut her down, or the secrets behind Drake Trucking. If she won’t sell out, the only way to keep her safe is to keep her close . . . and fight like hell.
