    Rye finally finds the courage to knock, but an answering Emma thinks he is seeking a job with Sam. He fails to tell her his identity claiming only to be a friend of her adopted father. As Mark begins to stalk Emma, Rye intercedes to keep her safe and that leads to Rye getting into trouble with the law. Still Rye will risk jail to keep Emma safe, not just because she is family, but because he loves her with all his heart.

    Known for her engaging novels that hook the reader from start to finish (see UNBREAK MY HEART), Teresa Hill provides another strong tale that sub-genre fans will complete in one sitting. The story line is loaded with action and the characters are fully developed though the audience needs to accept Emma, recovering from an abusive relationship, taking a stranger into her home. Still, Ms. Hill provides her fans with a strong romantic suspense that takes the reader to THE EDGE OF HEAVEN.
