Description: Five years ago, Dee Crawford's engagement to Jacob Delaney ended in death. Jacob's secrets followed him to his grave--and chased Dee from Delaney's Farm, and from his brother Abe's forbidden embrace. Yet when her own secrets send her back to Ohio and right into Abe Delaney's arms, old guilt comes to light, old passions reignite, and Jacob's secrets return to haunt them with more than just his memory. Someone in town wants Dee gone, and will do anything to stop her from uncovering the truth about her fiance's death. If Dee is to survive, she must expose Jacob's long-buried secrets...and expose her heart to Abe. Only by admitting their love can they ease the guilt that has plagued them for years. But will love be enough to save Dee when the next death on Delaney's Farm may be her own?

"You can't chase me away from where I belong, Abe. This is our farm. You can't just do anything you please."
Abe said nothing. His gaze dragged over her, roving from her mouth and down her body with an insolence that made her want to scream.
Rage flushed through Dee like fire, shooting from her pounding head down to her pulsing, tingling center. "You can go to hell is what you can do, Abe Delaney."
"Was that supposed to hurt my feelings?" Abe's smile crawled across his lips, a slow and knowing thing.
Desire moved through Dee's blood, hot and slow as molasses. Anger snapped through her, turning her arm into a whip, her hand into its stinging lash as she slapped him hard across his stubbled jaw. His head jerked to the side. His hand shot up and locked around her wrist, capturing her in a grip made of coarse-hewn rock. SSSlowly he turned his head back, working his jaw. His eyes found hers, smoldering with slow-building anger beneath flash-fire lust.
"Well now, darlin'," he whispered, and his voice thrummed through her, rumbling deep in his chest. "Don't think that's the smartest thing you've ever done."
