Are you ever really innocent until proven guilty?
Sophia Naziri is wanted for questioning in the murder of a U.S. senator. She’s worried the police will show up on her doorstep any moment, but when Detective Colby Black appears, it’s to help her put out a kitchen fire, not take her in. Yet. His easy smile and persistence in getting to know her pushes all her troubles to the back of her mind, until a hit man tracks her down. Getting arrested becomes the least of her worries and the handsome detective could be her only way out—if she tells him the truth.
Colby Black’s sniper skills have been a blessing and a curse to him. As a member of a Hostage Negotiation Team, he can use them to save people, but sometimes he can’t protect the innocent despite his best efforts. When a hostage situation goes bad, he tries to put it behind him by helping out his mysterious next-door neighbor, Sophia Naziri. But she pulls Colby into a web of lies and conspiracy that will force him to use every skill he has in order to survive. Faced with the moment of truth, can he trust anyone around him—including the woman at the center of it all?

Started AND Finished this book today…could NOT put it down!
LOVE Julie Coulter Bellon books!
What a great romantic suspense!! I finished last night and just can’t stop thinking about it. I just hope I’m never in a situation like that–I swear my heart was racing too as she was trying to get out of her scary situations. 🙂
I really enjoyed this book! I didn’t realize it was a sequel when I started it (though the book wasn’t confusing at all, even though I hadn’t read the first one). Now I can’t wait to go back and read book 1 in the series.
I read this yesterday and loved it! Just the right amount of action and romance. And that hero- cleaning and baking when he’s stressed? Awesome!
