#1 New York Times and USA Today bestselling author Sandra Brown jolts the reader from the first page of this heart-pounding story of corruption, treachery, and ceaseless deception . . . where nothing is what it seems and every truth brought to light exposes a darker lie.

When Jordie Bennet and Shaw Kinnard lock eyes across a disreputable backwater bar, something definitely sparks. Shaw gives off a dangerous vibe that makes men wary and inspires women to sit up and take notice. None feel that undercurrent more strongly than savvy businesswoman Jordie, who doesn't belong in a seedy dive on the banks of a bayou. But here she is . . . and Shaw Kinnard is here to kill her.

As Shaw and his partner take aim, Jordie is certain her time has come. But Shaw has other plans and abducts Jordie, hoping to get his hands on the $30 million her brother has stolen and, presumably, hidden. However, Shaw is not the only one looking for the fortune. Her brother's ruthless boss and the FBI are after it as well. Now on the run from the feds and a notorious criminal, Jordie and Shaw must rely on their wits-and each other-to stay alive.

Miles away from civilization and surrounded by swampland, the two play each other against their common enemies. Jordie's only chance of survival is to outwit Shaw, but it soon becomes clear to Shaw that Jordie isn't entirely trustworthy, either. Was she in on her brother's scam, or is she an innocent pawn in a deadly vendetta? And just how valuable is her life to Shaw, her remorseless and manipulative captor? Burning for answers-and for each other-this unlikely pair ultimately make a desperate move that could be their last.

With nonstop plot twists and the tantalizing sexual tension that has made Sandra Brown one of the world's best-loved authors, STING will keep readers on the edge of their seats until the final pages.

When Jordie Benet walked in the sleazy bar, she never expected to witness a murder and be kidnapped by Shaw Kinnard. The FBI is looking for Panella, a mobster, and Jordie's brother for swindling money for lots of people. There is a contract out on her life and Shaw will do whatever it takes to keep her safe. This is a page turner from beginning to end.

Suspense & Romance - A combo that Sandra Brown excels at!

When Josh's ex-partner in crime, Billy Panella, puts a hit out on Jordie, Shaw Kinnade double crosses his partner and takes Jordie hostage. Jordie & Shaw's sparks keep their cat & mouse relationship complicated.

Well written page turner with some spicy bits.

Looking at some of the previous reviews, it seems that some readers didn't enjoy the book. However, I loved it. Maybe I was just in the mood for something not too deep and Sandra Brown always delivers. There was mystery, intrigue, twists and turns. Towards the end, I couldn't put it down. I definitely enjoyed it.

Very boring, drag on and on, not the usual Sandra Brown, took me a long time to finish which I hugely regretted, wasted my time. Seems to me the book was written 20 years ago.

Complicated story contains authentic police procedural crime dramas, lots of surprises, twists and turns as well as romance and intrigues. It is a story of corruption, kidnapping , tons of money with well developed characters that catch your interest

I agree that this is a very boring book. It took 2/3 of the book to find out who Shaw really is and even then you still don't like him.

I've always enjoyed Sandra Brown's books & this was no exception. Overall, a good read.

Not the best Sandra Brown book I've read. It just seemed to drag on and on and on.
