While looking for some information about his heritage, Jake visits a small town in Maine to meet the woman who he is to understand is his grandmother. Upon his arrival he finds that the woman he believes is his grandmother has Alzhemier's and a woman who might be his mother just recently died. At their home he finds "Megan" a frigthened woman he isn't quite sure of what to make of.
As he unravels the mystery of his heritage, Jake realizes he wants to find out what is going on with the woman living in the house. She's puts up a strong front, but is definitely afraid of something.
For one year "Megan" has been on the run from a murderer she believes has the clout that even the police won't be able to save her from. She comes to this small town and moves to the most obscure place she can find. She keeps away from as many people as possible so no one knows anything about her. When she starts getting calls from the murderer she knows it is only a matter of time before he will find her.
The premise behind the story isn't a new one, but the well written descriptions behind the scenes of the dialog takes the reader into the minds of both the hero and heroine enough to keep the story interesting. In some of the scenes the readers can feel the fear pouring off "Megan", as well as feel her indecision as to wether to trust the handsome stranger that comes into her life. Maybe if this were real life these two very different people wouldn't fall in love in the end, but you'd like to think they made some kind of connection after the experiences they go through.
The book is well worth the low price of admission into "Megan" and Jake's world.
A woman hiding from her identity. A man trying to find his.
After witnessing a murder, Megan Summers ran until she reached the remote coastal village of Victory Cove. She has a new name, but she knows it’s only a matter of time before the murderer catches up with her.

Jake tries to dig deeper into his past, but he’s distracted by his fear for Megan’s safety and his growing feelings for her. Danger is drawing near and he’ll do anything to keep her safe. Will it be enough to help them survive the endless night.
About the author from the back of her book:
A natural born writer, Maureen Miller was nonetheless taken down a different course by life. As a programmer in an industry that required constant travel, Maureen sought escape by making use of her laptop and writing exotic tales—escapism at its best. Listening to the airport speaker rattle off another flight delay, Maureen rattled off another romantic suspense novel.
Her first book, Widow's Tale, was nominated for a Golden Heart Award by the Romance Writers of America. A fan of gothic romance, Maureen enjoys the formula of danger, romance and inclement weather, although there is no accounting for her third novel, Rogue Wave, which basks in the Hawaiian sun.
