The prolific author of more than 100 books, Diana Palmer got her start as a newspaper reporter. A multi-New York Times bestselling author and one of the top ten romance writers in America, she has a gift for telling the most sensual tales with charm and humor. Diana lives with her family in Cornelia, Georgia.
For years, Palmer's long, tall Texans have donned white hats and rescued ladies in distress. FBI Special Agent Mac Kilraven, the hunky hero of her bangup latest, is no exception. He reluctantly falls for doe-eyed 22-year-old Winnie Sinclair, but he's disturbed by a painting she gives him as a Christmas gift. It's eerily similar to a drawing his child, Melly, gave him before she and her mother were killed seven years ago. Kilraven's dedicated his life to catching the monster responsible, and now two cold cases converge as a dead body surfaces in the Little Carmichael River. There's no shortage of suspects-Winnie's drug-addicted uncle, the shady brother of a politician-as the investigation heats up and a development convinces Kilraven to ask Winnie to act as his wife when the trail leads them to the Bahamas. Palmer (Heartless) demonstrates, yet again, why she's the queen of desperado quests for justice and true love. (June) Copyright 2010 Reed Business Information.
