Julie Connolly thought she had perfected the art of emotional eating, but ever since she learned of her father's passing, she's taken it to new heights. The bastard has figured out how to destroy her life from the grave.
Her father's proposal—abandon her son Cody, so someone else can raise him, or lose her inheritance. The outrageous condition doesn’t deserve a response but the lawyer her father hired demands an answer. Before she can tell the ambulance-chaser exactly where he can shove his demands, her worst fears come alive: Cody is kidnapped. Her only hope comes from Ben Mooring, a man she hates nearly as much as her father.
Though Ben Mooring lost his chance with Julie years ago, she and Cody still mean the world to him. He practically raised the kid for years when he was with Julie. When Cody goes missing, Ben drops everything to search for him. He might never win a spot in Julie's life again, but he can't rest while Cody is in danger and Julie needs him.
Julie and Ben join forces to find Cody, but they have to work quickly. If she doesn't find him soon, she might lose her son forever.
It had been ten hours. Ten hours since she’d last seen her son. Ten hours since he’d said “I love you” in his little voice. His arms had wrapped around her waist. His blond hair had been ruffled, and had smelled of his blueberry shampoo.
She wanted to smell that scent again. She wanted to feel that ruffled mess of hair.
Every minute he wasn’t found was a knife to her heart. Every minute she didn’t know where he was killed her. Who would take a child? What kind of evil monster would just disappear with a mother’s son.
Was Cody being treated well? Was he scared? What did they want?
Whatever it was, she’d gladly give it. If they wanted her arm, her leg, her heart, her life… anything. Just call. Send in the order. She’d hand over everything she owned to get him back.
About the Author:
Who is Vanessa M. Knight? Well, I’m an author. Wow. After years and years of wanting to use those words, that is fun to say. It’s almost as fun as supercalifragilisticexpialidocious. Did I spell that right?
I write contemporary romantic suspense.
I live in Chicagoland with my family and menagerie of four-legged friends. In my mind, these lovely animals do everything as they should. I’m the alpha, keeping peace and harmony amongst my humble servants. In real life, they own me. I’m the maid, here for their feeding pleasure. Well, that and to clean up their messes.
When not catering to the needs of adorably-furry faces, I slug through the nine to five grind and head home so I can write. Of course, that’s after I make dinner and clean the house and all the other tasks that go into family life. So really, I work, cater to animals and my family… and then, if I don’t fall face first into bed, I write. I love putting my characters into crazy situations and watching how they react. I hope you love reading about them.
I love to hear from fans. I can be found on Facebook at VanessaMKnight and at www.vanessamknight.com.
