Product Description

Product Description

She took the baby and ran…

Eighteen-year-old Maggie didn't know what else to do. She'd promised her dying friend she'd keep the baby safe from his father, a drug dealer…and killer. Who else could she turn to but her uncle, Deputy Tony Rivers?

Everybody Tony cares about seems to leave him. He really wants to help Maggie and the newborn baby, but if he reports them to his boss, Chief Deputy Angie Carter, he knows Maggie will run again—and he can't risk losing her.

But how can Tony keep the truth from Angie when they're embroiled in an investigation that puts their jobs—and their lives—on the line?

5.0 out of 5 stars The Runaway Daughter is wonderful 17 Feb 2006
By Judy - Published on
Format:Mass Market Paperback
The Runaway Daughter by Anna DeStefano sensational follow-up to her previous book The Unknown Daughter.

For month's coworkers Chief Deputy Angie Carter and deputy Tony Rivers have developed a close friendship. Just when things start to heat up, Angie pulls the breaks on an affair since she is planning to run for Sheriff soon. But Tony's presence still lingers on her mind, even though he is ten years younger he makes her feel more alive then she has had in ages. After being dumped by her fiancé after she is unable to have children she is just amazed that a playboy like Tony is even interested in her.

Tony Rivers has always been the love `em and leave `em kind of guy. The life of the party. Tony and his older brother were orphaned at a young age and while Eric became the responsible one, Tony partied. With his brother and new wife out of town, Tony is responsible for the care of their teenage daughter Maggie. When a terrified Maggie witnesses her best friend being gunned down, she turns with her friend's baby in tow to her Uncle Tony.

Tony tries to handle this on his own, afraid that his niece will bolt with the baby. She made a promise to her friend to get the baby to her parents to care for. But Tony realizes he needs Angie's help in order to keep Maggie alive. As Tony and Angie try to capture the killer they turn to each other for comfort. Can this one night turn into something more?

Anna DeStefano writes with such feeling that you are drawn into caring for her characters. Their trials and chemistry will hook you from page one. This book is so emotional that it will linger with you long after you turn the last page.

4.0 out of 5 stars intriguing police procedural romance 16 Feb 2006
By Harriet Klausner - Published on
Format:Mass Market Paperback
Oakwood, Georgia Chief Deputy Angie Carter and Deputy Tony Rivers know they should not have a relationship outside of friendship and the office as she is his superior. However, they are attracted to one another though she is also a decade older than him and has been burned once before by a player, which is how most people describe Tony.

Tony's teenage niece Maggie talks with her friend single mom Claire Morton about the overdose death of Travis Reynolds; Claire believes her baby's father Sam Walker is the prime county drug dealer. When Sam and a business associate Marcus come home, bullets fly; Claire is shot and is seemingly dying, Marcus is dead, and Maggie flees with baby Max. Maggie turns to her Uncle Tony for help. He, in turn, brings in his boss to help protect his niece and the infant while they investigate the drug dealing and killings by Sam.

THE RUNAWAY DAUGHTER is an intriguing police procedural romance starring two likable protagonists and a strong support cast. Tony is a misfit who knows he can never be as good as his role model, his older brother; while Angie sees how deeply he cares and loves behind his nonchalant façade, but knows she must not pursue a relationship with a direct reports employee. The tension between them as they work the case makes for a strong thriller. Though readers will wonder why the pivotal scene happened where it did as the intelligent Sam would never risk his lucrative business by killing Marcus in his home, fans will enjoy this strong older woman younger man cop romance.
