Outsider by Diana Palmer
Meet Colby Lane, the Long, Tall Texan Diana Palmer's fans have been clamoring for-a man who is larger than life, and twice as exciting.
The New York Times bestselling author delivers to readers a thrilling story set against the rugged, ever-changing south Texas landscape. Former black ops CIA operative Colby Lane, now retired from his wild years as a mercenary, has found his new calling as assistant chief of security for the mammoth Ritter Oil Corporation.
But the past is never far behind. He's soon enmeshed in plans to trap a notorious drug trafficker, and it seems that his ex-wife, Sarina Carrington-whom he so cruelly left after one day of marriage-may be more involved than she's letting on. Not only that, but Sarina has a six-year-old dark-eyed daughter whose father is mysteriously absent-or is he?
