In Ruth Owen’s captivating novel, a woman in danger must hide the truth about her past from the sexy PI who’s bent on protecting—and loving—her. Gabe Ramirez is descended from a long line of pirates who turned their plundered treasures into legitimate fortunes, making his family one of the richest and most powerful in their native Cuba. As a private investigator in Miami, Gabe leads a more mundane existence than that of his ancestors. But when he meets Laurie Palmer, his world is turned upside down. He’s never seen a beauty quite so breathtaking—and as past experience has taught him, a woman this gorgeous can only spell trouble.
Laurie and her six-year-old son, Adam, are on the run. The last thing she needs is a PI getting close enough to learn the truth about her—even if her body aches to be pressed up against the hunky detective’s chiseled physique. Though she rebuffs all of his offers for help, Gabe refuses to be deterred. And when Laurie surrenders to the explosive chemistry between them, she prays she can trust Gabe with her heart—and her life.
