Close Up
by Virginia Kantra

Lexie Scott may be the FBI director's daughter, but she's struggled her whole life to stay out of trouble and avoid the spotlight. When she's kidnapped by a survivalist cult bent on teaching her father a lesson, however, she must summon the courage she never knew she had. Lexie escapes the cult's wilderness headquarters—only to find she's not alone in the woods...

Suspended cop Jack Miller came to North Carolina to rescue his sister from her abusive marriage to the survivalists' charismatic leader. Coming to Lexie's aid can only compromise Jack's plans. But he can't ignore Lexie's plight...or resist her appeal.

Tall, dark and rough-around-the-edges has never been Lexie's type. But in the lush, shadowy forest, Lexie has no choice but to trust this intimidating stranger.

She's just not sure she can trust her heart...
