Publisher's Summary

The powerful Quintrell family of New Mexico has spent decades in the public eye. Now the recent death of the clan's patriarch has placed his son, Governor Josh Quintrell, squarely in the spotlight as he prepares his run for the highest political office in the land. It is not a good time to be rattling skeletons in the family's closets.

Researching personal histories isn't just Carolina "Carly" May's profession, it's her passion. But digging into the past is raising troubling questions about the would-be president's private life. And it soon becomes frighteningly apparent that someone is determined to remove the inquisitive genealogist from the picture by any means necessary.

Carly realizes that there is no one whom she dares to trust, perhaps least of all Dan Duran, a dangerous and haunted mystery man who's somehow tied to the Quintrells' past. But she will need an ally to survive, because following the bloodlines of the wealthy and power-hungry can be a bloody business.
