New York Times bestselling author Joan Johnston returns to Texas with a captivating story of justice, secrets, and a love that can heal all wounds Dedicated Texas Ranger Jack Kittrick is hard on the trail of a killer who is preying on the helpless in a large San Antonio hospital ...a hunt that leads him to Maggie Wainwright, the beautiful, enigmatic legal eagle who had access to the victims-and a motive for the crimes. The more Jack learns about Maggie, the more this secretive lady-who makes his spurs tangle and his heart run wild-enthralls and perplexes him. When her own son becomes the killer's target, Maggie can no longer keep silent about her painful, shadowy past. With everything she truly cares about at stake, Maggie must cast her fate to the Texas winds ...and trust her future, and her love, to the determined lawman who has more questions for her than she has answers.
