Publisher Description

From New York Times bestselling author Toni Anderson comes a heart-stopping Romantic Thriller...

An assassin risks everything when he falls in love with the dedicated FBI agent hunting him.

Alex Parker wants out of the assassination business, but his handlers refuse to release him. At least he only eliminates serial killers and pedophiles, which makes him one of the good guys...that's what he tells himself with each new assignment.

When Mallory starts asking questions, Alex is ordered to watch her. But when they meet, the chemistry between them is combustible and proves impossible to resist. The lies and betrayals that define Alex's life close in and threaten to destroy them both. And when the killer who stole her sister all those years ago makes Mallory his next target, Alex is forced to sacrifice himself and their relationship to protect the woman he loves.
