FBI Agents Adam Brand and Delilah Hammond shared a great night, but afterward he hesitantly informs her never again as he is her superior. In love with her boss, Delilah quit the Feds and goes home to Bitterwood, Tennessee. Though he knows he did the honorable right thing, his heart tells Adam he made the wrong choice.

Eight years since Delilah left him, Adam still a Fed believes Virginia lumberyard owner Wayne Cortland is a master criminal and terrorist. No one believes Adam and in fact evidence mounts that the Fed is the terrorist while his target is a good citizen. Wounded, on the run and trusting no one except the person who owns his heart; Adam turns to his former subordinate local law enforcement official Delilah. Though she should refuse, Delilah knows her Adam would never betray his country so she agrees to help the man she still loves.

The third Bitterwood P.D. tale (see Murder in the Smokies and The Smoky Mountain Mist) is an exhilarating second chance thriller. Delilah is a terrific heroine trying to rescue the hunk in distress. Readers will enjoy this high octane storyline as domestic terrorism arrives in the Great Smokies.
