"Deadly Ties is just an all-around amazing story. The suspense will have readers at the edge of their seats!" - Fallen Angel Reviews: Five Angels: Recommended Read Some bonds are love . . . Taylor Reese is done with men - especially egotistical ones - no matter how charming they may be. The only exception to her "no men" rule is her eight-year-old adopted son, Ryan, who is wonderfully adjusted considering the environment his parents forced him to endure. Both are starting over in the Washington, D.C., area and aren't looking for anything more than peace and quiet. Thanks to Gavin Kinncaid, that peace and quiet is nothing more than a fleeting dream. Some ties can never be broken . . . Dr. Gavin Kinncaid, one of the most successful doctors in his field and well aware of it, knows women - or so he thinks, until he meets Taylor Reese and realizes he doesn't know anything about the opposite sex. Taylor is nothing like any woman he's ever met. More than that, she's the only woman he's ever wanted to strangle. But when fate throws them together on a rain-swept deserted road, passion soon twists their feelings into more than antagonism. First desire, then friendship, and finally love. And some bonds are deadly . . . As the three of them grow closer, learning to trust and building bonds none of them ever thought they'd have, a menace approaches. A menace that will destroy each of them and the bonds they've worked so hard to forge: Ryan's mother has escaped from prison, and she has only one plan - to rip this happy family apart and reclaim what she considers hers, no matter the cost.
