A serial killer is targeting Detective Vanessa Connor's oldest friends, and evidence – the 'calling card' left in her home – indicates she's the next victim. But Vanessa refuses to run scared. She's a cop. And she's determined to make full use of her years on the force to trap the murderer herself.
So when a federal agent is assigned to protect her and catch the killer, Vanessa isn't exactly cooperative. She doesn't need a bodyguard – particularly one as dangerously attractive, dangerously seductive as Rick Maguire. His powerful arms make Vanessa feel safer than she wants to admit, even when the killer is getting close enough to cross them both off his list.
