The Runaway Heiress
A brave woman on the run from her vindictive husband faces a dangerous path in the thrilling new romantic suspense novel from Oscar-nominated actress Meg Tilly.
Sarah Rainsford has been on the run for more than three years. She’s changed identities yet again in hopes of throwing her violent estranged husband, a police lieutenant, off her trail. Since she’s still legally married to him, and he is willing to bend any laws to get his hands on her inheritance, Sarah is worth far more to him dead than alive.
With a new name and fake ID papers, she lands a job as a personal assistant to none other than Hollywood’s golden boy director Mick Talford. He’s a difficult client but she senses hidden depths to him. Once Mick and Sarah combine forces in a desperate attempt to keep Sarah out of harm’s way, they build a strong bond . . . but with danger trailing them, is it enough to keep them both alive?
“Tilly makes it easy to root for these strong, focused characters, neither of whom has ever been in love before, adding an endearing, first love twist to their romance. The well-developed protagonists and intriguing suspense plot are sure to keep the pages turning.”—Publishers Weekly
“Meg Tilly writes a perfect blend of scary and sweet romantic suspense novels, and though The Runaway Heiress sounds like a historical, it’s actually a bone-chilling story about a woman who goes on the run from a violent cop—her husband—and gets a job as the assistant to a bad-boy movie director. As a Golden Globe winner herself, Tilly knows Hollywood, and her authenticity makes the danger more bloodcurdlingly effective.”—Eloisa James, 10 Excellent New Romance Books, BookBub
