As a little girl, Sara Brand witnessed the murder of her family, an event that has left deep emotional scars. She’s beginning to heal, having found extended family in Texas and the brother she thought she’d lost. On break from her job teaching Kindergarten, Sarah has come to vacation at Sugar Keep, an old plantation in the Louisiana Bayou country.
But trouble hasn’t finished with her yet. It shows up in the form of darkly handsome Jake Nash, a man with a hands-off attitude and sizzling brown eyes, who turns out to be an ex-con suspected of murder. Before she can make up her mind about him, someone is killed right in front of Sarah’s eyes. She didn’t see the killer, but the killer has no way of knowing that.
Now she’s on the run and there’s only one person protecting her. Jake. Is he “her shied” as a Voodoo Priestess told her, or is he stalking her with the intent to silence her forever?
