Annie Sutherland has come in search of her late father’s protégé, James McKinley. Only he could know the answers to her father’s death, just as he held the secrets of the dangerous work both of them did.
McKinley has always been a dangerous man, a killing machine, one with no human weaknesses except for the innocent daughter of his mentor. She’s the last person he wants invading his bolt hole, but after all the years of fighting off his attraction, right now he wants nothing more than to drop all the lies and take her.
Annie thought her crush on McKinley was long gone, but the moment she sees him, everything comes flooding back. He’s the man who holds the secrets, and he’s not about to share them. He’s the man who holds her heart, and he’s not a man to trust.
There were too many people out to kill them, but if one man could keep her safe, McKinley is that man. He could save her life--even if he breaks her heart in the process.
