Author Karlyn Campbell wants a new start after her recent divorce. She heads home to Georgia to write her popular Matt Collins series and becomes fascinated with Atlanta’s Rainbow Killer.
Detective Logan Warner’s marriage didn’t survive after he lost his twins to a crazed killer. Emotionally dead, his interest in life is renewed when he falls in love with Karlyn and begins to build a new life with her.
But the Rainbow Killer moves beyond Atlanta, leaving a trail of dead bodies painted in bright hues in several towns north of the city. Leaving no trace evidence or DNA and choosing random victims with no apparent reason, Roy proves unstoppable. Then he arrives in Walton Springs, threatening the peaceful town with his murder spree. With a serial killer in their back yard, Logan and Karlyn unite with the FBI to find the killer—before he finds them.

EXCERPT"Logan pulled up and saw Karlyn waiting for him on the porch swing. She came down the steps, her hair pulled back in a low ponytail. Tight jeans molded to her hips and butt left little to his imagination.
She reached for the helmet he offered and swung it onto her head.
“I am starving, Warner, so this hamburger joint better be good.”
Karlyn snapped the strap in place and threw her leg over the bike. She snaked her arms around his waist and locked her fingers together. Her floral perfume wafted around him, revving up his own engine.
The evening had turned cool. Logan knew he took a big risk, but this woman had gotten under his skin.
The worst she could do was say no.
The best would be a huge yes.
He tooled down the highway a few minutes and then pulled into a small parking lot. He cut the engine and waited a beat.
“The Cavalier Motel.” Her voice was low. Her arms still locked around him. He could sense the tension scrolling through her.
Logan got off the bike. Lifted her off. Pulled her to him. Heard the hitch in her breath.
“I haven’t slept with anyone since my wife. I’ve never pulled into a no-tell motel on a first date.” He drew her close. “But my blood races every time I’m around you, Karlyn Campbell. You’re all I think about. I want to taste you. Touch every inch of you. But the ball’s in your court.”
