To most people, Fiona Bristow seems to have an idyllic life - a quaint house on an island off Seattle's coast, a thriving dog-training school, and a challenging volunteer job performing canine search and rescues. Not to mention her three intensely loyal Labs. But Fiona got to this point by surviving a nightmare....

Several years ago, Fiona was the only survivor of the Red Scarf serial killer, who shot and killed Fiona's cop fiancé and his K-9 partner.

On Orcas Island, Fiona found the peace and solitude she needed to rebuild her life. But all that changes on the day Simon Doyle barrels up her drive, desperate for her help. he's the reluctant owner of an out-of-control puppy, foisted upon him by his mother. Jaws has eaten through Simon's house, and he's at his wit's end.

To Fiona, Jaws is nothing she can't handle. Simon, however, is another matter. A newcomer to Orcas, he's a rugged and intensely private artist, known for the exquisite furniture he creates from wood. Simon never wanted a puppy - and he most definitely doesn't want a woman. Besides, the lanky redhead is not his type. But tell that to his hormones.

As Fiona embarks on training Jaws, and Simon begins to appreciate both dog and trainer, the past tears back into Fiona's life. A copycat killer has emerged out of the shadows, a man whose bloodlust has been channeled by a master with one motive: to reclaim the woman who slipped out of his hands....

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Gail | 2/12/2014

    " (Audiobook) Not bad. Nora tends to deliver a solid entertainment for me, although this one is not a favorite. I like rough men, but her Simon was slightly more rude than I prefer. The dog training stuff was interesting although perhaps a little too prevalent in the story. The mystery was solved by the middle of the book but she managed to keep the tension going. I liked the heroine just fine, especially her strength and self-reliance. Jaws, the lab puppy, stole the show for me. "

    " Nora Roberts is a little hit and miss with me. I've read a few and almost gagged on my own vomit...but there are a few of her books which do everything right and this is one of them. "

    " I loved this book. The characters were fun and interesting. The story was the everyday romance with a twist. I never really thought I would be a Nora Roberts fan but I have officially become one. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Michael Edwards | 1/6/2014

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Barbara Ghylin | 1/4/2014

    " Living in Washington state made this book come alive for me. A lot the places she talked about I knew and had been there. It was one of the first ebooks I bought and then recommended it to my mother-in-law to buy on nook. We both enjoyed it!! "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Maurisa | 5/24/2013

    " This was an enjoyable thriller from Nora Roberts. Fiona is the lone survivor of a serial killer. He's in prison, but he has an apprentice, and guess who one of his targets is? You got it. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 C. B. | 3/18/2013

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Sarah Stankus | 10/1/2012

    " Very interesting! Really enjoyed the dog search and rescue element since I used to show/train dogs! If you love animals and romance novels give this a try:) "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Dottie Legatos | 9/11/2012

    " Another winner from Nora Roberts! Suspense, romance, clever story line, and dogs too! As many books as she has written, her stories never fail to be fresh & entertaining. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Dotty Leahy | 9/10/2012

    " Enjoyed this book. Especially good for dog lovers. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Neha Oberoi | 4/1/2012

    " I just loved the dogs! Every little one had its own little quirks. From the pup to the dogs! Its was adorable plus the mystery was pretty engaging "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Denise | 3/27/2012

    " A good read. Nora Roberts quite effectively used her both her talent as a writer of crime fiction and her talent as a romance author in this story. It's a nice break from all the "3 women, 3 love stories" trilogies by her that I've read so far. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Robin | 9/4/2011

    " Oh my goodness!!! What a page turner! I love Nora Roberts romance novels so this was a little different than what I am used to from her but I LOVED IT!!!! I didn't want to put the book down and fell asleep with the book on most nights. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Sandra | 5/22/2011

    " This was a good Nora Roberts read. I will continue to read her new releases. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Colleen | 5/18/2011

    " Liked this way better than I expected to. Love JD Robb, but have only tried 1 or 2 NR. But this was full of the snappy dialog that is a big part of the JD Robb attraction, plus the main character is a dog trainer, and the male lead reminds me of Jack Reacher. Nuff said. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Shannon | 5/18/2011

    " I found this one a little scary, but as always, Nora is a fav! "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Cassie | 5/12/2011

    " Very good! NR never goes wrong with a little love + killing. Reading her latest, Catching Fire, is next on my list. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Holly | 5/12/2011

    " Loved it! Good read, as well as learning something about searching for people who are lost. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Eliza | 5/11/2011

    " this is a GREAT book especially if you like dogs. Not your typical Nora Roberts. Fun and interesting "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Traci | 5/11/2011

    " I really liked this book. The characters were very interesting and I never got bored with it. This is my first Nora Roberts book and I will be picking up another! "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Jen | 5/10/2011

    " You can always count on Nora Roberts to give you a good (if predictable) romance with some suspense thron in, just to keep you interested.

    I learned a few things that I passed on to my puppy which was a pleasant surprise. "

  • 1 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 5 Lyndsay | 5/4/2011

    " Snooze fest. It strung you along for forever with very little payoff. the Protagonist love intrest is a wash. The serial killer not at all frightening and the stand off over in about a minute
    needed some serious editing. Story line would have been better as a short story "
