After spending the night at a retreat dedicated to sensual pleasures, a woman finds herself at the center of a murder investigation in this edge-of-your-seat romantic thriller from New York Times–bestselling author Meryl Sawyer
The wolf at the door of Claire Holt’s Taos art gallery is Lobo, a dangerous hybrid of German shepherd and timber wolf belonging to Zach Coulter, the town’s one-time bad boy. Now, instead of running from the law, he is the law. But the homicide-cop-turned-local-sheriff isn’t there to rekindle an old flame.
The body of Claire’s business rival has been found at the Hideaway, an illicit club where drugs and sex are bartered in the midnight shadows. And Claire’s wallet and an incriminating piece of intimate clothing have been discovered in the bungalow next to the crime scene. Claire has no alibi—or memory of that night. Did someone drug her to frame her for murder?
Claire enlists Zach’s help to find the mysterious stranger who can provide her alibi. In spite of the violent past that binds them, Zach can’t refuse her. Now, he and the girl who used to drive him wild might get a second chance—if he can stop a human predator from killing again.
