Hell On Wheels…

The full moon brings out the crazies; anyone in emergency services knows that. But for hospice nurse Beth Ann Decker, the gruesome murder that rocks Hatcher County is shockingly unexpected. As is the return of the Texas community’s most hated prodigal son — Mark Jessup. Sixteen years before, the town’s bad boy was behind the wheel of a pickup that left three cheerleaders dead and Beth Ann so badly injured that people whispered she’d have been better off in the grave with them.

Jessup is all man now — tough, uncompromising, rich — and a possible suspect in this new killing. Beth Ann knows he’s the last person she should be spending time with, especially when a nighttime intruder makes it clear that she herself is a target. But in Mark’s heated gaze, Beth Ann sees something a lot more exciting than pity. No matter how dangerous the road ahead, she’s dead set on meeting life, and love…

Head On.
