A year after a barbaric childbirth, complete with a
near-death experience and an encounter with her guardian
angel, Angie Edmonds is just happy she and her son, Jake,
are alive. She's finally in a good place: clean, sober, and
employed as a defense attorney. But at the end of a long
work day, she finds herself in a parent's worst nightmare:
Jake has been kidnapped and taken across the Mexican border
by a cult leader who believes the child is the "Chosen One."
Stymied by the US and Mexican legal systems, Angie is forced
to ask the head of a Mexican crime syndicate for help. Much
to her chagrin, she must work with Alejandro Torres, a
dangerously attractive criminal and the drug lord's
right-hand man. Little does she know Alejandro is an
undercover federal agent, equally terrified of blowing his
cover--and falling in love with her.
