Gage McKinnon is a man with a mission. Known as The Bloodhound, Gage is an FBI agent who specializes in tracking down kidnapped children. It's more than a career with him, its an obsession. Twenty-three years ago when he was just twelve years old, his beloved younger sister disappeared and was never seen again. Gage blames himself -- he was charged with tending little Charlotte but had been distracted by friends. Now he dedicates his life to protecting children, even at the expense of his spirit.
Alicia Connelly DeBarrillas is a woman on the run. Together with her two daughters, ages five and three, she has fled from her Pennsylvania home and headed across the country with nothing but a few suitcases. Allie is desperate to keep her children, afraid her late husband's wealthy Venezuelan parents will find a way to smuggle them out of the country and she'll never see them again.
When Gage is injured on the job, Allie comes to his rescue and they begin to forge a wary friendship. But when he finds out she abducted her own children, will he find it in his heart to understand? [from author's web site]
