Every Waking Moment
by Brenda Novak

“Get ready to cheer for Emma in this non-stop nail-biting adventure!” —Catherine Coulter, #1 New York Times Bestselling Author

Sometimes you have to risk it all…

Emma Wright has finally escaped the dangerous man who’s controlled her every move for the past six years. Taking her five-year-old son, she has fled across the country—seeking freedom, safety and a fresh start. But Max’s father isn’t giving them up so easily.

Preston Holman understands the lengths a parent will go for his child. He’s given up everything to pursue the man he believes killed his son.

When Preston meets Emma, he wants nothing to do with her or the boy who reminds him so much of his own child. Yet he can’t abandon them—and as he’s drawn into the danger that surrounds them, Preston begins to wonder if he’s finally found something to live for beyond revenge.

Originally published July 2005 in mass market paperback.



Brenda Novak's Bio

It was a shocking experience that jump-started Brenda Novak’s career as a bestselling author—she caught her day-care provider drugging her children with cough syrup to get them to sleep all day. That was when Brenda decided she needed to quit her job as a loan officer and help make a living from home. “When I first got the idea to become a novelist, it took me five years to teach myself the craft and finish my first book,” Brenda says. But she sold that book, and the rest is history. Her novels have made the New York Times and USA Today bestseller lists and won many awards, including five Rita nominations, the Book Buyer’s Best, the Book Seller’s Best and the National Reader’s Choice Award. Brenda and her husband, Ted, live in Sacramento and are proud parents of five children—three girls and two boys. When she’s not spending time with her family or writing, Brenda is usually raising funds for diabetes research (her youngest son has this disease). So far, Brenda has raised $2.6 million.
