Was She Falling In Love With the Man? Or the Badge? A few weeks ago, Karen Lindberg wouldn't have had to ask herself that question. But she hadn't met Neal Rowland then. And in a small town torn apart by suspicion-by danger-the local police chief meant protection. Maybe Karen had always harbored a secret wish to find a man stronger than she was, a man who could take care of her. Nonsense! Karen was a born rebel who'd never wanted to depend on anyone. It was time she took matters into her own hands and stopped waiting passively for a man to protect her. And if Neal couldn't accept that-accept her right to choose her own risks-then he wasn't the man for her. Her decision made perfect sense. In the daylight. But in the dark of night, all that matters is love.
