LINGER by P.J. O’Dwyer
Maryland State Police counter-sniper Brit Gentry took that fatal shot. Only she doesn’t remember pulling the trigger. Now after a psych evaluation and being placed on administrative leave while the brass investigates, Brit’s packing it up.
If there’s one place where she can make sense of what happened, it would be in the mountains of western Maryland and the solitude of her cabin on Deep Creek Lake—drama can take a hike.
Too bad someone didn’t tell escaped convict Pride Rivers to stay clear of one on-the-edge cop in designer heels. It was no accident this ex–Army Ranger commandeered Brit Gentry and her Pathfinder on Interstate 68. The wife of his double-crossing Army Ranger comrade is the mother of all bargaining chips. But first he’ll have to use her to flush him out.
Being a fugitive on the run makes recon difficult, and Pride’s unaware his gorgeous, brown-eyed captive is trained to kill. And it’s Brit’s mission to keep him in the dark—her life depends on it. But when hidden agendas are exposed, they are surprised to find they were betrayed by the same man.
When wounded souls collide, anything can happen—even love. But first they’ll need each other to survive.
