The third book in the beloved #1 bestselling author's sexy, romantic suspense Slow Burn series…
They say young love doesn't last, but a girl from the wrong side of the tracks with unique abilities and the hometown golden boy were determined to defy the odds. For Zack Covington, Anna-Grace—his "Gracie"—was the one. Until one night forever alters the course of their future, when a devastated Gracie disappears without a trace, leaving Zack to agonize over what happened to the girl he loved. As the years pass, his desperate efforts to find her uncovered nothing.
Now working for Devereaux Security, he stumbles across a painting featuring a special place only he and Gracie would know. The image is too perfectly rendered for it to be coincidence. His Gracie must be alive. When he finally tracks her down, he is shocked—and heart-broken—to discover the wounded shell of the girl he once knew and still loves. Her psychic gifts are gone, and worse, she believes he betrayed her all those years ago.
Zack has enemies, and once his weakness is discovered, Gracie becomes a target for revenge. He'll have to save her before he can earn her trust and her love. And he vows they'll never be torn apart again.
Bank's high-action third Slow Burn paranormal romantic thriller (after In His Keeping) is a well-blended love story that takes readers on a mission of discovery and redemption. Zack Covington has spent 12 years searching for his first and only love, Anna-Grace. After suffering a gang-rape she believes was instigated by Zack, which resulted in the temporary loss of her mind-reading abilities, Anna-Grace has spent those 12 years trying to get past the brutality and the betrayal. When Zack comes across a painting of a place that's special to him and Anna-Grace, he finally gets the answers he's been searching for, while Anna-Grace has to work up the nerve to face the man she thinks is the mastermind behind her attack. However, their tension-filled reunion is interrupted when Anna-Grace becomes the pawn in Zack's enemies' game of revenge. Readers may feel cheated by constant separation of the lovers, but will admire their undying love and commitment to each other.
