A savvy businesswoman and an assassin struggle to outwit the FBI — and each other — in this #1 NYT bestselling story of sizzling romance and shocking deception from "a masterful storyteller" (USA Today).

When Jordie Bennet and Shaw Kinnard lock eyes across a disreputable backwater bar, something sparks. Shaw is a man who gives off a dangerous vibe that makes other men stand back and women take notice. No one feels this more strongly than Jordie, a woman 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 takes aim, Jordie is certain her time has come. Instead, Shaw has other plans. He abducts Jordie, hoping to get his hands on the $30 million her brother has stolen. But he isn't the only one: Jordie's brother made a deal with the FBI, but his ruthless boss will stop at nothing to find the money first. Now on the run from the feds and a notorious criminal, Jordie and Shaw must rely on their wits to stay alive.

Miles away from civilization and surrounded by swampland, Jordie and Shaw play each other against their common enemies. Jordie's only chance of survival is to outwit Shaw, but he suspects her from the start. Was she in on her brother's scam, or is she an innocent pawn in this 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 sizzling sexual tension that has made Sandra Brown one of the world's most beloved authors, Sting will keep you on the edge of your seat until its final pages.

Meh.. Not my favorite Sandra Brown novel but the ending was pretty epic to say the least but I'm not sure if I fully understand the logic but who's counting anyway. Worth the buy. Fast read.

Does Ms Brown have any idea how abdominable surgery feels? Super stud Shaw is a joke as well as the predictably contrived sexual episodes. The story line was good , but not the execution ( no pun intended)

I have read numerous Sandra Brown books and I did not find this one to be one of her best! There is a glaring plot inconsistency in this book right near the end, which makes me feel like the author did not take much time or care in crafting the story. Overall disappointing!!!
