- #1 New York Times bestselling author Christine Feehan reaches new heights of passion and suspense in this thrilling novel that takes readers deep into the California backcountry, where a woman is tormented by visions of a killer.
It starts in her dreams. Hideous flashes from a nightmare only she can stop. Images of a murderer stalking the ones she cares about most...
Stella Harrison thought she got away from the traumas of her past. Running the Sunrise Lake resort high in the Sierra Nevada mountains has brought her peace, even though she doesn't truly share her quiet life with anyone. Not even Sam, the hired handyman that notices everything and always seems to know exactly what she needs.
Stella doesn't know anything about Sam's past, but somehow over the last two years his slow, steady presence has slipped past her defenses. Still, she knows she can't tell him about her recent premonitions. So far there's been no murder. No body. No way to prove what's about to happen without destroying the life she's built for herself.
But a killer is out there. And Stella knows that this time she'll do whatever it takes to stop him.
I wanted to have a group of women, much like those friends of my daughter, with unusual jobs who are very tight-knit and supportive. I love writing about strong women. My heroine, Stella, has a traumatic past that she's trying to overcome and leave behind. Regardless, Stella is strong, although not outgoing, but is hardworking and upbeat. She's smart and she has an unusual gift that sets her on a dangerous path.
My hero is a strong and patient man. He'd have to be. Stella is not easily won. But she's worth it. He's in it for the long haul. He's brave and protective and I love him!
I think readers will love these characters and their bond.
This was fun to write and to research. Who knew I'd enjoy murder so much? LOL
