act-first-ask-questions-later Detective BD Harte is
assigned to protect Maggie Sullivan when she's targeted by
an escaped serial killer he'd put away a year earlier.
Getting up close and personal with the sensuous widow he
felt an inappropriate temptation for threatens BD's
emotional distance. Attraction quickly flares into an
irresistible passion, forcing him to wage a battle of self-
control, while memories rip open an old wound, awakening
his longing for the life he almost had...and still covets.
After one too many violent taunts shatter her sense of
security, single mother Maggie Sullivan invites Detective
Harte to conduct his all-night stakeouts from inside her
home. When her home is again broken into and she discovers
Harte's been investigating her late husband, she struggles
with her attraction to him. But the comfort she finds in
his arms, his understanding and tenderness, and the passion
he awakens triggers yearnings she'd long ago given up
on...and still desires.
Can two wounded hearts come together as one in time... Or
will the killer seeking a powerful key to nuclear weaponry
ensure they never have the chance?
