Product Description

Deputy Sheriff Jon Sutherland reunites with his high school sweetheart when he responds to a silent alarm she sets off while house sitting. This chance meeting sends the deputy and Zoe Westmoreland on a roller coaster run for their lives.

Burglars escaping from her parents' home, send her sprawling. Twice. Then she finds the gardener floating face down in the family pool and interrupts a burglary-in-progress next door. When the gardener's death is ruled a homicide Jon moves in to keep Zoe safe. Not all that easy.

Two men try to force their vehicles off the road, and the one time Jon leaves Zoe alone those really bad guys show up again. Thanks to Zoe's quick thinking and resourcefulness, the crooks get a free ride to the hospital and she winds up in Jon's arms.

EXCERPT

Zoe turned toward the large panel of blinking lights beside the front door. All right, time to learn to disarm Dad's alarm.

She pulled her father's instruction from her jeans pocket. Just like the retired Superior Court judge -- always thinking every one needed constant instructions, and always judgmental.

At least he'd made this list as simple as possible.

Still thought of her as a little girl, she saw. Some things never changed.

Use the remote clipped to the Volvo's sun visor to open the garage door.

Now, drive in. Always enter the house through the garage.

Oops. First mistake. She'd parked in the driveway and come in through the front door.

May as well read the rest of his instructions and hope she hadn't made another wrong move.

Disarming the panel at the front entrance takes too long. If you're slow, it activates a silent alarm.

Zoe risked another glance at the now fully lit panel near the entrance.

Busted. Two mistakes already and all she'd done was walk right by the panel and out onto the deck, too awed by the idea of lolling beside her parents' pool for a whole month to note those flashing lights.

Last night, she'd dreamed her father hugged her when they returned from their trip. That wouldn't happen. Not now.

Perhaps all is not lost.

She marched over to the panel, undaunted but the array of flashing lights and held up her father's instructions.

Eight, four, three, seven turns off the motion sensors.

Seven, three, four, eight sets them.

Leave it to Dad. Always thorough.

"Eight, four, three, seven turns the motion sensors off," she repeated, her index finger poised to poke the eight.

"Hold it right there," a deep voice boomed from the doorway.

Zoe stilled at the sight of a George Clooney look-alike in a sharply-creased khaki uniform standing in her parents' doorway.

"Don't move. You're under arrest."

I really am busted.
