Deadly Vendetta
by Roxanne Rustand

He hadn't known about his estranged sister's little girl. Now he's on the run to keep her alive.

DEA Agent Zach Forrester's troubled sister still blames him for her narcotics arrest and has refused all contact for years. But now she's at his door, frantically claiming she and her daughter have witnessed something terrible. Begging him to keep her child safe from her enemies, she shoves her Katie into his arms and disappears. For good.

He'd suspected his sister had fabricated her "enemies" to escape her parental responsibilities. But two days later, a bomb explodes in his home, and the message is clear. He needs to take Katie into hiding until he can trace the men who are after her. He knows the perfect place: a dusty little Colorado ranching town where he spent several years long ago, where strangers are noticed with suspicion and won't get past the watchful eyes of the locals. He hopes.

He doesn't expect to discover that the only love of his life is still there. He'd jilted her years ago to keep her safe, but has spent a lifetime regretting the choice he had to make. Is it ever possible to step back into the past and hope for a second chance? Maybe...

But anything personal is off the table when Katie's pursuers show up and will stop at nothing to eliminate her before she can identify them.
