"The Breath of Dawn" by Kristen Heitzmann

Corporate turnaround specialist Morgan Spencer, dubbed the "success guru," has a Midas touch in business. But losing his wife sent him to the brink, and his two-year-old daughter, Livie, is all he's living for-until they encounter a woman whose trouble just might draw him out of his own.

Four years ago Quinn Reilly did the right thing. Now the man her testimony put in jail is getting out. Though she has put up barriers to protect herself and those around her, she has come to care for the Spencer family, especially the winsome Livie and her mercurial father. Unwilling to put them at risk when the threats begin, she requests something she hopes the super-successful Morgan might be able to deliver.
Fixing problems is what Morgan does best, but his counterproposal takes them in a direction neither is equipped to handle. Determined to confront the past, will they survive to build a future?

I absolutely love Kristen Heitzmann's books!  Always full of suspense and intrigue, this book is as fast-paced as the others.  Quinn Reilly makes a spunky and resourceful lead character as she struggles to do what's right and avoid the trouble she senses ahead.  Morgan plays the wounded warrior coming to the rescue of his damsel -in-distress, and nobody does it better.  The pain each feels pulls you in and makes you want to cheer them on, and the issues coming at them keep the pages turning.  

Heitzmann masterfully mixes human crime and temptation with supernatural evil to keep the suspense level high and your emotions on edge throughout this book.  Little else could stop Spencer, whose money and connections could remove most obstacles.  The combination of Quinn's determination and pure intentions coupled with Morgan's power create worthy opponents for the evil lying in wait around every turn.

The Breath of Dawn is the third in a series, and while I've read many of Heitzmann's books, I've apparently missed the previous two.  Heitzmann describes the turmoil of past stories well and keeps the reader informed of all pertinent information, so I didn't feel as if I was missing anything while reading - except that I can't wait to go back and read the others.  

I think I'll go search for them now.
