Brett's a hard man, so it hit him like a sledgehammer when he fell in love with Tessa Conway.

And when Brett discovers the identity of the embezzler, his whole world is about to come crashing down...
Linda S. Howington, an American author, was born in Alabama in 1950. She writes romance/suspense novels under the pseudonym Linda Howard. Inspired by the iconic novel, Gone With the Wind, by Margaret Mitchell, Howard began writing stories for her own enjoyment, until, after 20 years, she finally submitted a novel for publication. That novel set her a on a very successful career.
Linda's husband is a professional bass tournament competitor, and she travels with him and works on her laptop as he is competing. They live on a farm in Alabama in a beautiful, large home, where they raise cattle and have two furry pal golden retrievers.
Wow, this male was a little over the top. I loved the heroin, would love to see more like her. She was very well fleshed out and I came to love her and her personality. The male, Brett, was a little..ok, a lot harder to love. I don't think he was fleshed out very well. When he started to explode when she backed off made me want to throw the book across the room. I'm just not sure that I'm happy with her being with him. It was a quick read though.
