Police detective Brand Gallagher is bent on revenge against mob boss Giovanni Castellano, the man who ordered his brother's death. Now undercover within the mob, he's getting closer to exacting his long-planned vengeance. But when he's ordered to kill a juror who refused to hang a jury, Brand knows he can't do it. He has to save Juror No. 7, the lovely Lily Raines, even though it will blow the cover on his three-year mission.
Lily is threatened by thugs to set a killer free, but her father taught her to do the right thing, so she votes to convict. Now her life is in danger and her only hope is a mob hit man named Brand. But Brand seems more like a hero than a thug.
Brand and Lily find themselves on the run, with no one to depend on except each other. Lily trusts Brand with her life, but can she trust him with her heart? By protecting Lily, Brand could lose everything he's worked for, and gain all he's ever wanted.
