Tell Me When it Hurts
Perfection is tricky, especially when it’s not real—and it never is.
Archer Loh seems to have the world on a string. A magna cum laude graduate of Smith College, with a law degree from Columbia, Archer has a great husband, a wonderful daughter, and a fulfilling career. Add to that a slot on the U.S. Equestrian Team and Archer can almost forget her mysterious past, her violent history. Almost perfect.
But nothing stays at equipoise forever. Life jigs or it jags; it dips or it soars. When Archer’s daughter, Annie, is murdered, her life shatters and deadly skills, long dormant, emerge as highly relevant. As Archer embarks on her own path to salvation, she snips all ties with the past. Love is now an extravagance, no longer affordable for her.
At her darkest ebb, Connor McCall, Harvard-educated financial baron turned Wyoming rancher, stumbles into Archer’s life and presses her to start reconnecting the dots. It’s an edgy blend of La Femme Nikita, The Horse Whisperer, and something else.
In Tell Me When It Hurts, memories can sustain or sink you, all in the same night and all the same memories.
