Sara’s terrified. She’s falling in love. And if that’s not bad enough, it’s with former pro football player Adam Black, a man everyone knows. That fact could cost Sara her life. Sara has been invisible, hidden away in a witness protection program from the man who kidnapped her and her sister twenty-five years ago, who caused her sister’s death, and who so traumatized Sara that she blocked out the memory of his face. But Sara knows that he’s still doing everything possible to find her-and finish her off before her memory returns. Her only safety is in staying invisible, but Adam won’t listen, or give up on what they can have together. Soon they’re both caught in a chain of events that brings Sara face to face with terror-and with the sure knowledge that only God can save her and set her free from the Danger in the Shadows.


Fear not, for I am with you,
be not dismayed, for I am your God;
I will strengthen you, I will help you,
I will uphold you with my victorious right hand.

Isaiah 41:10

This is the verse that started it all.

Sara was kidnapped at age 9. Now 25 years later one kidnapper is put behind bars while the other is still out there and hunting. Sara lives under constant security and fear. One fatefully night God brings in her life Adam. Adam is a retired quarterback who was instantly attracted to Sara.

After the scare in the elevator, Sara and Adam are linked. Sara tries to steer Adam away from her but Adam stays. Even when he finds out how hard Sara’s life actually is and how hard it is to be in her life. But he is not going to give up. Not with God on his side.

I love the character growth. Adam and Sara had slow chemistry. It was nice to read a book that had the three knot relationship. Dee Henderson wrote an amazing cast and plot. I am definitely going to move on into Dave’s book.
