Will
a snap decision change their lives forever?
Bizarre
kidnappings stun the Big Island of Hawaii, pulling Danker Donahue back into the
game and forcing him to partner with Jolene Kualoha, the woman who left him
seven years ago when his DNA showed up in paternity lawsuit. The
prejudice-motivated hate crimes are the wildest anyone has ever seen. Victims
are being poisoned then released once the ransoms are paid, many losing their
lives.
In
the shadow of Jolene’s success as a helicopter pilot, a troubled woman develops
a fixation on Jolene and imitates her appearance. Matters turn dark when the
copycat is shot dead. Was Jolene the target? Threats mount when she barely
survives an accident after her brake cables are severed.
When
these crimes threaten her sanity, Jolene is forced to trust the one person she
thought she’d lost forever, Danker. Instantly, sparks fly between them, and as
much as she wants to rekindle their relationship, she must protect her heart.
An
old enemy, Seamus McGinn, breaks out of a maximum-security prison and invites
Danker to a meet-up. Surprisingly, the kidnapper joins forces with McGinn along
with his sick fans. McGinn trumpets his ‘murders by ice pick’, and it’s up to
Danker to stop him. The whole island is on edge with a live feed from the
maniac’s website.
In
a stolen moment, Jolene shows him hope, and he makes a snap decision that will
change their lives forever. Will he make it back to show her?
 Excerpt
 
Chapter
One
Seven
years since their breakup, Jolene Kualoha spotted Danker Donahue, ambling from
the parking lot toward the store. She recognized him by his height and long
gait. Wind from the north ruffled his hair and brought a bone-biting chill to
her heart. Nuts, here he was, ducking his head to miss the bell overhead. It
tinkled, and a strange twisting sensation hit her in the stomach.
This
happened at the Kalua-Kona Food Emporium on a Sunday morning in July. She
stared from where she stood near the avocados. His dangerous edge drew her in,
but she turned her back to him. Her body reverberated like when her cellphone
was on vibrate in her pocket. Stunned with minor electric shock, she
froze.  Maybe he wouldn’t see her.  Wouldn’t recognize the back of her head or
the once familiar shape of her ass.
Was
someone waiting for him in the parking lot? Someone like Louella, the baby’s
momma who’d summoned him for an immediate DNA test? For a split second, she
craned her head around but didn’t see her with him.
She
and Danker were a couple when the test confirmed his fatherhood. Her heart
ached at the memory. Love hurt, but that wasn’t all. Loneliness hurt. Losing
someone hurt. Decision-making hurt when you force yourself to do the right
thing.
She’d
pulled away, giving him space to work on his previous relationship for the sake
of their child. The most shameful thing a woman can do is take parents away
from a baby, and this began her year of stubborn steadfastness.
I
did the breakup rituals. Got the dramatic haircut. Engraved a piece of jewelry
he got me with a new message. Deleted the photos that made me cry.
To
have been his woman was like living where the air flowered with jasmine, and
the weather day after day was flawless, but the forecast was a hurricane.
