When a costly mistake ends Malorie Montgomery’s career, she returns to Cape Cod in search of a fresh start. But her plans for a new—and quiet—life are quickly derailed when she makes a grisly discovery in the woods, and her screams bring the one person from her past she’d hoped to avoid. Dean Slater, the ex-boyfriend who broke her heart in high school, now lives in the beachfront community that was supposed to be her haven…and he’s just as hot as he was six years ago.
With his rough background, Dean always knew he wasn’t good enough for the kind, intelligent beauty who claimed his heart, but somehow he’d believed their love was strong enough to survive anything—until the tragic night she turned her back on him when he needed her trust the most. Despite their painful history, Dean can’t resist the instinct to protect her, especially when it becomes apparent there’s a killer in their town.
Their former chemistry soon reignites, but Malorie has long accepted that her dark family secret has destined her to a life alone. And when she uncovers evidence that makes her the killer’s target, a deadly confrontation threatens to destroy any possibility of a second chance.
Dangerous Currents by Kathryn Knight
Malorie came back to Cape Cod after six long years, searching for peace, a chance to heal and to make a fresh start in the place she called home. Was it the right thing to do when even the waves dancing over the water held dark secrets? The ghosts of the past were everywhere, but none were as horrific as what she found buried in the bushes or the man who responded to her screams…
Dean Slater, the boy who broke her heart was now her rescuer? Could things get worse? He betrayed her once and she never got over it. Now they have another painful memory to share. Welcome home.
No way could the scream he heard have come from the last woman he ever thought he would see again. Dean came from the wrong side of the tracks, and in a toney area like Sandalwood, he stuck out like a sore thumb but Malorie never made him feel he was beneath her, even though he knew he could never be enough for her, something she proved in spades the night he needed her most…
Kathryn Knight’s DANGEROUS CURRENTS is yet another dramatic and suspenseful romance with real people, real emotions and real pain. Unreconciled betrayals, his pain, her pain and somewhere in the middle lies the truth of what happened the last day they were an item. Then there are the dark secrets that haunt their lives and changed the course of what should have been their love story.
Six years later, their hearts still drawn together like moths to a flame, a monster still lurks in the shadows and even a second chance at love could prove deadly.
Ms. Knight knows how to bring her characters to life! We are invited into their heads, their hearts and to hear their thoughts, feel their fears and can only hope Fate will prove that some people are meant to be together, come Hell or high water, but will their pride stand in their way? Can their love withstand one last horror? If the heat between them is any indication...
The tension that runs through Kathryn Knight’s words, each scene and page is razor sharp. One cannot help but feel that all of the answers lay just out of reach as each layer is unveiled and “the plot thickens.” I love a story where I can honestly say, “I didn’t see THAT coming!” A second chance at romance, layers of suspense…priceless reading!
