One minute Lisa Woodrow is a big city prosecutor, and the next she's back home, deep in the fumes of North Carolina racing culture and trying to keep a low profile.
She has no choice. A criminal she helped convict is on the prowl for her, and Wade McClellan, ex-fiancý and best-NASCAR-crew-chief-in-the-business, insists his security is tight and she'll be safer with him.
There's no way Lisa will ever go back to being a "sideline cheerleader," but this caring, committed Wade hardly seems to be the same man she left behind. Suddenly, staying beneath the radar in North Carolina doesn't seem to be such a bad idea....

Excerpt from Hearts under Caution by Gina Wilkins
The moonlit night was still, the late July temperature warm but comfortable as Lisa Woodrow sat on a concrete bench in her mother's North Carolina garden. Heavy perfumes from many varieties of roses tickled her nose and carried her back to her past. As she had so often in those blissfully naive and hopelessly romantic younger days, she found herself thinking of Wade McClellan".
A rustling in a far corner of the large garden brought her abruptly back to the present. Every nerve ending in her body on sudden alert, she sat up straight, straining her ears. When the sound wasn't repeated, she let out the breath she'd been holding and tried to relax, assuring herself that there was nothing to fear here.
She had plenty of reason to be on edge after the events of the past week. It didn't soothe her frazzled nerves to know that Wade was inside her parents'house, meeting with her father and a few other top members of the Woodrow Racing team.
Since team owner Ernest "Woody" Woodrow had undergone a full hip replacement ten days earlier, limiting his movements for a few weeks, the majority of his meetings had taken place here, in his home office.
His highest-ranking team members had arrived right after dinner on this Monday evening to discuss the race week ahead. Wade had been the first of those arrivals.
It had been obvious that he hadn't known Lisa was there, since she'd flown in only a few hours earlier, but he had recovered quickly from his surprise. He'd greeted her with the same polite distance he'd displayed on the few other occasions when they'd crossed paths over the last six years. She'd responded in the same cool manner"and had made her escape at the very first available opportunity.
