Jill Breck’s consummate skill as a river guide is the only reason Joe Faroe still has his son. So when a threat is made on Jill’s life shortly after her aunt dies in a mysterious fire, the still-grateful head of St. Kilda Consulting gets her the best protector in the business.
Actually, Zach Balfour works part-time as a consultant for St. Kilda. His expertise is gathering and analyzing information from unlikely and often dangerous sources. Though he’s got the expertise to be a highly effective bodyguard, being a bullet catcher for hysterical women isn’t his preferred way to spend time. But Jill isn’t your usual damsel in distress.

As she soon discovers, the perils of running wild rivers are tame compared to staying one step a head of a ruthless killer hidden in the blue smoke of money, threats, lies and death…
