Ricki Sparks knows she can make a mean red velvet cake but can't believe she's let herself be talked into a blind date. When she opens the door to see the man she's been secretly sweet on since the first day he walked into her bakery, she fears her heart will be demolished.
With a past like his, private investigator Garrett McBride doesn't feel he's worthy of a good woman's love. Especially not Ricki, the sweet, beautiful baker. But it isn't long before he admits to himself that he wants her for his own. He never suspects that the greatest danger to her may come not from himself, but from the deceitful woman Ricki has befriended.
Love may not be the only thing Ricki falls into along the way as she finds herself in a world of deceit and betrayal that may cost her life. Garrett must find her, before it's too late.
