A woman being hunted. The agent she betrayed. One chance to save her life.
Somewhere deep in her bones, Josephine Maxwell always knew he’d come back—the attacker who once left her for dead. All those years ago, he created the bold, smart-mouthed survivor she grew up to be. Now he’s back to destroy her.
Even as she fights tooth and nail, one regret nags at her mind. It’s shaped like a tall, handsome FBI agent whom she couldn’t allow past the twisted-barbed-wire defenses strung by her past trauma.
Despite the betrayal that ended things between them, Special Agent-in-Charge Marshall Hayes can’t get Josie out of his mind. Her waif-like figure, big blue eyes, Titanic attitude problem—he hasn’t looked at another woman since.
When Josie’s past comes crashing back into her life, Marsh doesn’t give her a choice about letting him help her. Because he was born and bred to protect. And to catch a killer and keep Josie safe, he’ll break every rule—and risk losing his heart all over again.
