The last thing in the world that Alex Dempsey wanted to do was to return to Freedom, Arkansas. When he had run out on his high school sweetheart on the day of their elopement ten years ago, he had been determined to find a life for himself outside of the small town confines of Freedom - even though it had broken his heart to leave Keira behind. He was happy with his life now as an ATF agent. When he was assigned as an undercover agent on an assignment back in Freedom, he refused to go. Until he was told that Keira's life was in danger. Why did his heart speed up just thinking about Keira? He was over her. Wasn't he? Would she still hate him, still be carrying a grudge against him for leaving her behind, never contacting her in those ten long years?

Keira Morgan had finally gotten over the heartbreak of having Alex stand her up on the day they were supposed to elope. It had been a long time ago. Ten years in fact. One could get over anything in ten years. Couldn't they? As she came face to face with Alex outside Franny's Style Salon in the newly revived downtown district of Freedom, she discovered that the one thing a person couldn't get over was being stood up at the altar - even though it had been ten long years ago.

Seems Freedom is just another word for nothing left to lose.

Lauren Bach has written one hot book - in more ways than one. Word of warning - you will need an oven mitt to handle SLOW HANDS. The steam literally rises from the pages as you turn them. Lauren has a fascinating way of combining two genres, romance and mystery, that leaves the reader breathless - and begging for more.
