When Trevor Willis offers Dani Carpenter her dream job as director of a new camp for children, she is thrilled. Dani intends to keep Trevor, a family friend, at arm’s length. But her heart changes toward him as they team up to protect Ady, the young daughter of a kidnapped scientist. 
After Trevor testifies against the son of Don Francisco Morales, a major supplier of heroin into the United States, Morales (aka the Scorpion) targets Trevor in a personal vendetta to destroy his reputation and then destroy everyone Trevor loves. 
With Ady tucked away in a secure location, Dani and Trevor embark on a chase that takes them from the forests of the Pacific Northwest to the jungles of Mexico. They must stop the Scorpion before he strikes again.

“I’m worried about someone coming at me from behind. What should I do?”

“That’s a very good question. Let me demonstrate. Dani, can you help?”

She looked around, then pointed to herself in an exaggerated manner. “Me?”

“It seems as if she’s a little shy. Let’s encourage her.” Trevor started clapping. The noise grew until Dani blushed and gave him a look he hoped wouldn’t kill him.

He reached out his hand to help her up. “Come on.” He positioned her in front of him and said, “Act like you’re waiting for a bus.”

Dani acted quickly, stomping on the inside of his foot. He grunted and let go of her neck. She finished with an elbow to his stomach.

Trevor groaned and grasped his abdomen. “Excellent demonstration. Did everyone get that?”

Dani smiled innocently. “Should I do it again—in case someone missed it?”

“No. no. That’s good. You can sit down.”

After researching my Italian roots, I would visit Marsicovetere, Italy in the earlier part of the 1800s. I have uncovered some haunting questions that I would like to ask my 3rd great grandfather Rocco Bruno, such as why did he change his name—twice! I f you could have dinner with any of your characters, which ones would be? What food would you serve? I would put Jana, Jared and Trevor in the same room and enjoy the fireworks as the two men both tried to impress Jana. In A Strand of Doubt, I tell the Pacific Northwest Legend of two chieftains who fought over an beautiful maiden. The maiden was turned into (more…)
