Attorney Theo Buchanan-brother of seasoned FBI agent Nick Buchanan, the hero of HEARTBREAKER-is in New Orleans to receive an award for his work with the Department of Justice. When he becomes unexpectedly ill at the gala ceremony, a beautiful stranger rushes him to the hospital and ultimately saves his life. The woman-a brilliant surgeon named Michelle Renard-intrigues Theo, but before he can learn more about her, she leaves New Orleans and returns to her small clinic on the Lousiana bayou. Theo seeks her out to thank her, but finds more than he bargains for. When he arrives in the little town of Bowen, he discovers that Michelle is being followed, her house has been broken into and her clinic has been destroyed. Theo is in a position to return the ulitimate favor. Michelle saved his life…now can he save hers?
Behind the threat is a secret society that will stop at nothing to satisfy its greed, including murder. From the time they became friends in prep school, the four who secretly call themselves the Sowing Club have been ruled by their ambitions and their depravity, bound by a pact that will guarantee them millions in cash. One woman, however, stands between them and their ultimate prize…one woman who can destroy them…and they will do whatever it takes to silence her. For Michelle Renard, there will be no mercy.
