This is book number 1 in the The Texas Trilogy series.


New York Times bestselling author Kat Martin continues to wow readers with her signature blend of action-packed suspense and sizzling romantic tension in this first book in the Texas Trilogy - now re-released in trade paperback!

Five weeks ago, Carly Drake stood at her grandfather’s grave. Now she’s burying Drake Trucking’s top driver, and the cops have no leads on the hijacking or murder. Faced with bankruptcy, phone threats, and fear of failure, Carly has to team up with the last man she wants to owe—Lincoln Cain.

Linc is magnetic, powerful, controlling—and hiding more than one secret. He promised Carly’s granddad he’d protect her. The old man took a chance on him when he was nothing but a kid with a record, and now he’s the multi-millionaire owner of a rival firm.

But Linc’s money can’t protect Carly from the men who’ll do anything to shut her down, or the secrets behind Drake Trucking. If she won’t sell out, the only way to keep her safe is to keep her close . . . and fight like hell.
