In New Orleans, someone shoots band member Danny Murphy when he and lead singer Lark Stewart were going to a club. As Danny nears death, Lark's Aunt Zelda calls former FBI sharpshooter Lucas McCloud from the middle of nowhere to tell him Lark is in danger and needs his help. Used to hearing the witchery of Zelda, Luke travels from their hometown of Highland Falls, North Carolina to protect the woman he loves, but left behind years ago.
Lark realizes that she still loves Luke and would prefer he not be here, but heeds his advice especially when he mentions that her stalker Dr. William Quest escaped jail. The assumption made by Luke and the police is that Quest saw Lark with her close friend Danny so he tried to kill him as the deranged man believes that the singer is his wife. As Luke protects Lark from the psychopath Quest and from her angry ex husband Cody, their love blossoms. However, she expects he will leave once she is safe and so fears giving him her heart again.
Though the final twist may seem OUT OF THE BLUE, readers will enjoy this second chance at love romantic suspense thriller. The story line is action-packed but driven by Lark who courageously contends in differing ways with the five men impacting her life. Fans will appreciate the middle book of the Stewart sisters' trilogy (see OUT OF THE MIST for the first novel).
