Her act of courage destroys everything . . . 

Charlene “Charley” Carter risked her life to rescue a child from a burning car. Suddenly, the quiet research assistant becomes a media darling—and a half-million dollars richer, thanks to the boy’s grateful grandparents. But big money brings big moochers and bigger betrayals. Charley retreats, wounded and suspicious about the motives of even those dearest to her.

He doesn’t trust that she’s for real . . .

Jess McMasters exposes frauds for a living, and if it means using his charms as well as his tough skills as a journalist, no problem. What’s Charlene Carter trying to gain by refusing to be interviewed by the press? Is she angling for more money—or is she hiding secrets that prove she’s nobody’s hero?

Jess goes undercover to get close to her, but the closer he gets, the less he understands. Except this: the cost for his deception could be his own heart.

Readers will find themselves mesmerized by these magical characters who symbolize hope and redemption. 4+ – Romantic Times
With over 55 sales since her first publication in 1987, Portage, Michigan author Nancy Gideon's writing encompasses romance genres from historicals and regencies to contemporary suspense and the paranormal.

Under her own name, she's a bestseller for Silhouette Romantic Suspense, has written an award-winning vampire romance series, and has an eight book shape-shifter series with Pocket Books. Also listed on the Internet Movie Database (IMDB), she collaborated on Indie horror films In the Woods and Savage with screenwriting and ADR script credits, and even played a small role.

Writing historical romance as Dana Ransom, she's a "Career Achievement for Historical Adventure" and "K.I.S.S." award winner with books published in Romanian, Italian, Russian, Danish, Dutch, Portuguese, French, German, Icelandic and Chinese.
As Rosalyn West, she's a HOLT Medallion winner with nominations for "Best North American Historical Romance" and "Best Historical Book in a Series."

A prolific writer, Gideon attributes her creative output, which once peaked at seven novels in one year, to her love of history and a gift for storytelling. She also credits the discipline learned through a background in journalism and OCD. The due date for her third book and her second son were on the same day . . . and both were early! When on deadline, she turns on the laptop between 4:30 and 5:00 a.m. to get a chapter in before work.
