Honeysuckle Rose

(Lethal Deception)
(A book in the Honeysuckle Rose series)
A novel by

Rose DeAngelo knows that insuring high-level shipments is a risky business, but when hijackers start lifting loads and injuring drivers and the string of thefts seems squarely targeted at her clients, she starts to feel the heat. Especially when all the signs point to her as the primary suspect.

To investigator Mike Ramsey, it looks like a clear-cut case of an inside job. Working undercover and posing as a trucker with valuable cargo, he sets himself up as the hijacking ring's next target, hoping to catch the thieves - and Rose - in the act.

As the two are thrown together to find out who's behind the dangerous crimes, each harboring doubts about the other, their suspicions mount even as an undeniable passion grows between them. But what neither of them realizes is that the hijackers are closing in, and Rose and Ramsey will be forced to trust each other and join forces or risk losing everything, including each other.

Lethal Deception was originally published under the title Honeysuckle Rose.
