From the back of the book:
"Consider this a warning."
Lately, nurse Monica Grant feels she's being watched. Followed. And then she receives a threatening letter -- accompanied by a dead snake. If she doesn't stop her plans to open a free children's clinic, she'll end up dead, too. Terrified, Monica turns to former lawman Shaun O'Neill -- who believes the same madman murdered his own sister five years before. She understands how much it means to the handsome, heart-guarding man to save her -- and her dream. Even if he has to lure a deadly stalker out of the shadows -- straight toward himself.
