From "one of the most popular voices in women's fiction" ( Newsweek ) comes a heart-pounding romantic suspense novel from New York Times bestselling author Karen Robards.

When she swore off love, he was the last man she imagined would steal her heart.

If driving a piece-of-crap tow truck through the seediest part of town with a Smith & Wesson beside her means putting a roof over her son's head, then Samantha Jones is going to be the best damn repo woman on the books. The streetwalkers, the drug pushers, the bands of looking-for-trouble punks haunting the mean streets at midnight don't intimidate her. These are her people. The guy she finds bound and bloodied in the trunk of her latest conquest, a flashy new BMW, is a different breed entirely.

Daniel Panterro was certain he was going to die. Instead, by a stroke of luck, he was beaten to within an inch of his life and left for dead. But if he's having a bad day, Sam's day is about to get way worse. Danny knows he hasn't seen the last of the vicious drug runners who kidnapped him from protective custody. His only recourse is to take his pretty savior hostage and force her to help him. There's no going back for Sam and her four-yearold son, Tyler. They're in way too deep.

With ruthless killers stalking their trail, Sam's only choice is to trust this handsome, menacing stranger. But as she relinquishes control, Sam feels an unmistakable desire. Could she be tempted by Danny, who seems intent on protecting her and Tyler from even his own darkest secrets? And what is the price of falling in love with a man who operates on the edge of danger--her heart, her life . . . or both?

She is becoming very predictable with her novels. Too much like a harlequin romance and who in this day and age uses the term " baby doll" . Ending was not plausible at all so it was just a quick read with no real substance. Some of her other books were so much better than this. Should have given up reading but went thru it anyway. Gave it 3 stars but maybe too generous for this one.

Very intense and of course I always love romance. So I was glad that was added in there. I enjoyed this one.

Started this novel early in the morning and got nothing done all day until I finished it! Robards reels you into the gripping tale in the first pages and you won't want to put it down for anything!

A Harlequin romance, but likable characters. Sam is tough, vulnerable, sexy and desirable, Tyler is lovable, Danny is almost too masculine to be believable. Plot is ok, and like most "thrillers" bizarre enough to keep the pages turning.

I expected a drama but got a Harlequin romance. What tough guy has a bullet wound and is beaten almost to death and one look at a woman gets him excited? Not!!

Stupid. Lightweight. Harlequin romance on steroids. More proof to me that anything on the New York Times Bestseller list is worthless.
