I'll Be Watching You

NEW! April 2008

THE SURGEON IS BACK … OR IS HE?

****1/2 Top Pick! “Tracy Montoya presents the perfect blend of romance, horror, and suspense in this tightly plotted, character-driven study of a young woman terrorized by a monster and the cop who vows to protect her. Yoga instructor Adriana Torres is being stalked, possibly by a man the police thought was dead--the man who murdered her cop fiancé years before and has turned her life into a horrifying online game. Detective Daniel Cardenas' protective detail becomes personal when he falls hard for the woman who's still grieving for the man she loved and who's afraid to love again. Don't read I'll Be Watching You after dark.”

He would do whatever it took to find his daughter.

It had been six long months since his beautiful daughter had disappeared. When another girl was kidnapped in the Washington State woods, Detective Aaron Donovan was convinced that the two crimes were related. After joining the search-and-rescue team, Aaron was forced to work with top-notch tracker Sabrina Adelante … and try to ignore the attraction they’d shared before his world was shattered. Offering up his military sniper skills, Aaron helped the group uncover some helpful clues. But then Sabrina nearly became a madman’s next victim, and Aaron wondered how he could possibly get close to another woman he cared about when he just might lose her.

The beauty
 
He was the best in the business, and Sadie Locke refused to settle for the protection of anyone other than Patricio Rodriguez. She was being stalked by a madman who wouldn't rest until he'd succeeded in frightening her to death. And she was afraid he just might win...
 
And the bodyguard
 
His past prevented him from letting anyone in; his future was to unpredictable for him to fall for his famous client.

Could she now trust him with her life?
 
could be their last ...
 
For Danny, being with Celia 24/7 was like a dream--and a nightmare.

****½ from RT Bookclub!
Banned from the Mt. Bethel United Methodist Church book club!

—Tracy's husband
