Book Description

Formerly - Running Out Of Fear...
Michelle Matthews has decided to quit running from her past and meet it head on. Yet, nothing goes as planned, starting when she returns to her hometown to meet her ex-best friend, who collapses in her arms after making a puzzling statement.
Shelly then survives two near fatal misses that are too coincidental to be accidents. After a third incident, where she dodges a couple of bullets aimed at her, Shelly has no choice but to run again. Only this time she's running with Jacob Collier, the man she originally left behind and the last person she intended to see.
Jake Collier hasn't got time to worry over Michelle Matthews' hesitance to accept his protection. Women are dying of drug overdoses, his ex-wife included. Since he’s the lead DEA agent on his case, and he believes the attempts on Michelle's life are somehow related to it, Michelle is stuck with him.
When another fiery attempt sends the two into deeper cover, hurtful truths about their pasts come out. Neither is guilt free. At this point, both Shelly and Jake wonder the same thing. Even if they do survive, can they find enough forgiveness in their hearts in order to love again?

5.0 out of 5 stars Running from Love seductive, and titilating. January 13, 2013
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
The story is intense, exciting and fast paced. Jake and Michelle face some deep issues from their past while working hard to find out who is responsible for Kiera's death. I truly felt connected and pulled into the drama they are engulfed in. This book has it all and I was swept up into a range of emotions and the passion they share. Great book it inciteful and fun to read. I highly recommend it. I also recommend the California Series by Sandy Loyd Winter Interlude: California Series (Volume 1)

5.0 out of 5 stars PACKS A PUNCH! May 25, 2013
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
This story is face paced, full of intense moments and well written. I haven't read anything by this author before, but I can assure you, this won't be the last. Jake and Michelle draw you in like a sponge--so much so, that you find yourself rooting them on to find Kiera's killer. Trust me, you won't want to put this book down until you read the very last word. Great Job, Ms Loyd.

I expected an excellent read from Ms. Loyd and was not dissappointed. Her characters were great and our leading lady was exceptional. I was sorry to see this read end.

1.0 out of 5 stars Poorly written, disappointing July 7, 2014
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
I had a very difficult time reading this book. The sentences were choppy and made for very labored reading, the characters were very poorly developed and the plot was very poor. The characters kept making stupid decisions just because they didn't want to face old feelings that popped up at the most inappropriate times. I mean really, if your old best friend just collapsed and died in your arms, would you really be thinking sensual thoughts about the man she had been married to and had a child with? Or refuse to report an auto accident wnere your car is totaled and you are almost killed because you don't want a small town talking about you? Just not a believable story.

More About the Author

Sandy Loyd is a Western girl through and through. Born and raised in Salt Lake City, she's worked and lived in some fabulous places in the US, including South Florida. She now resides in Kentucky and writes full time. As much as she loves her current hometown, she misses the mountains and has to go back to her roots to get her mountain fix at least once a year.

She spent her single years in San Francisco and considers that city one of America's treasures, comparable to no other city in the world. Her California Series, starting out with Winter Interlude, are all set in the Bay Area. Her series consists of fun, heartwarming stories about crazy friends who, like single people everywhere, are seeking that someone special to share their lives with among thousands of eligible candidates.

Sandy recently published her first Romantic Suspense novel, The Sin Factor, set in another wonderful US city, Washington, DC. She has since published two more, both set in fictional towns in Kentucky to give a reader a feel for small town living. Running Out Of Fear's setting showcases the state's caves and lakes. All have heart-stopping suspense and are full of the twists and turns she loves. Sandy also doesn't skimp on the romance.
