New York Times bestselling author Dianna Love writes high-octane thrillers and urban fantasy, including a popular collaborative series with author Sherrilyn Kenyon.

In 2013, Dianna released a new romantic suspense series, Slye Temps, and the first installment tops today’s Buffet: Last Chance to Run. The story proceeds at a breakneck pace with heart-stopping suspense and real characters.

When not touring the country on her BMW motorcycle, Dianna lives in the Atlanta area with her husband (who is a motorcycle instructor) and with a tank full of unruly saltwater critters.

Last Chance To Run (Slye Temp)

To an undercover agent, she’s a Person of Interest. He’s interested.

Escaping the compound of a deadly international felon–with a fortune in rare, stolen coins hidden on her body–elite athlete Angel Farentino has to make the most important run of her life. Literally. With her father in prison, where he belongs, and a prior undeserved conviction hanging over her head, she has nowhere to turn and no one to trust. Definitely not law enforcement who railroaded her through a judicial nightmare. One step ahead of lethal men and dogs on her trail, she runs into the arms of a dark stranger willing to help her if she’d let him. But that would only get the sexy pilot killed.

Between figuring out who’s sabotaging his undercover work for the DEA and trying to save his baby sister from herself, Zane Jackson has enough on his plate. The last thing he needs is to get entangled with a woman who’s treading on the wrong side of the law. But when the long-legged distraction races into the middle of his operation and stows away on his plane, a primal need to protect forces Zane to risk everything, starting with his heart.
