Nicole had known that getting back into the dating scene was going to be difficult, but this was ridiculous! Her knuckles were white as she clutched the steering wheel of the very expensive sports car, and raced towards the nearest hospital. Its owner was unconscious, bleeding out on the seat beside her, and all she could think of was that this couldn’t be happening to her. She took a deep breath, and tried to keep her mind on her driving, unused to the power of the sleek machine. She would not think of the man she had tried to help. The man she prayed wasn’t already dead. Things like this didn’t happen to her. She was a novelty cake baker, for goodness’ sake! A life and death situation used to be getting the wrong shade of pink on Maurice the wedding planner’s icing. Now as her glance strayed over to the paleness of the man beside her, she pushed her foot down further on the accelerator. She couldn’t let him die. Recently separated, housewife-turned-novelty-cake baker, Nicole Carson never did anything out of the ordinary. But with a single act of kindness to a stranger, she became part of a federal agent’s cover. What had seemed like a harmless idea at the time, soon had her dodging murderous drug lords, jealous DEA agents, and corrupt government officials – to say nothing of a homicidal ex-husband. Being ordinary wasn’t an option anymore.
