An innocent black woman wounded in a police bust gone wrong, Carol Taggert refuses to succumb to self-pity. Her experience has given her a new appreciation for life -- and has forced her to reassess her relationships. her goals, and her ideas about race and identity. It seems no one understands the challenges she faces -- except Lee Grafton, a white police officer who was there the night she was injured. Together, he and Carol try to come to terms with the close encounter that has changed their lives forever . . . and that will teach them the true meaning of trust, acceptance, and love . . .

Hailed by E. Lynn Harris as a "bold and imaginative" tale that is "sure to keep readers turning the pages," Sandra Kitt's interracial love story presents a man and a woman whose fates are changed forever by a random act of violence

Lee Grafton is a divorced cop and the father of a teenage girl. Carol Taggart is a newly single professor. Their lives collide one night when Carol is caught in the crossfire of an undercover drug sting gone south. Shot and seriously wounded, she finds an unexpected friend in Lee . . . unaware that the man she's falling for could be the shooter.

Twenty years on the street do nothing to prepare Lee for the night that changes his life. Determined to make amends, the special-operations lieutenant finds himself irresistibly drawn to Carol. But Lee soon faces a new threat. With his career and heart on the line, he races to prevent Carol from becoming a victim once again.
Passionate and bold, Close Encounters shatters myths about race, gender, and love.
