That night, Samantha Jones was doing what she always did: just trying to get by. Left to make her own way on the mean streets of East St. Louis, the pretty twenty-three-year-old single mother supported herself and her son as best she could by repo-ing cars. When she hooked her junker of a tow truck up to the BMW she'd been sent to haul in, the last thing she expected was to find a beaten, bloody man in the trunk--or to be catapulted into a terrifying fight to survive. Danny Pantrero was minutes away from dying when Sam found him. Bleeding badly from a gunshot wound, he'd been snatched from protective custody by a vicious gang of drug runners who would stop at nothing to see him dead. With his life on the line, Danny takes Sam hostage. Forcing her to help him, he tries to make her understand that now she's a target for the killers, too. When they invade her house and threaten her son's life, she finally understands: there's no going back. She and five-year-old Tyler go on the run with Danny in a desperate effort to reach the authorities who have promised him protection before the killers can silence all three of them forever. In the face of harrowing danger, Sam has no choice but to trust Danny with her life--and, more importantly, her son's. Against her will, she starts to fall for the once-menacing stranger, and discovers a depth of passion she never imagined she could feel. But what Sam doesn't know is that Danny has a secret that could destroy them all.

I loved the female,main character,being a strong woman! For me, I thoroughly enjoyed this thriller/romance book.

She is becoming very predictable with her novels. Too much like a harlequin romance and who in this day and age uses the term " baby doll" . Ending was not plausible at all so it was just a quick read with no real substance. Some of her other books were so much better than this. Should have given up reading but went thru it anyway. Gave it 3 stars but maybe too generous for this one.

Very intense and of course I always love romance. So I was glad that was added in there. I enjoyed this one.

Started this novel early in the morning and got nothing done all day until I finished it! Robards reels you into the gripping tale in the first pages and you won't want to put it down for anything!

A Harlequin romance, but likable characters. Sam is tough, vulnerable, sexy and desirable, Tyler is lovable, Danny is almost too masculine to be believable. Plot is ok, and like most "thrillers" bizarre enough to keep the pages turning.

I expected a drama but got a Harlequin romance. What tough guy has a bullet wound and is beaten almost to death and one look at a woman gets him excited? Not!!

Stupid. Lightweight. Harlequin romance on steroids. More proof to me that anything on the New York Times Bestseller list is worthless.
