Stopping at a roadside diner usually means bad chili, not a hostage situation. But Smithson Group operative Harry van Zandt finds himself in the middle of just that when armed men burst through the door. They're after the woman in the nearby booth, and they give her seventy-two hours to come up with a valuable document or her brother dies. Harry, too, if he doesn't see that she delivers.
Harry's on his own mission involving the same document, so he doesn't mind helping treasure hunter Georgia McLain. She's smart and sexy. And she's desperate. The document could clear her father's name, so she's not about to turn it over. With Harry's help, she can double-cross the thugs. On the road with a price on their heads, the two find themselves caught in a web of secrets, lies, and desire with no time to catch their breath.
