Burke Goffe survived the war, but at what cost? Dealing with changes back home didn’t go well. Landing a job with Master Security as a system designer, allows him to distance himself from people so he can’t screw up again. Then his boss asks for a personal favor he can’t turn down and his self-contained life explodes.
As a teen, Stella Printz beat cancer and never looked back. Fourteen years later, she’s living her fantasy in Colorado where she opens a dinner/dance club. She never imagined her dream would turn into a nightmare. When her business is vandalized, she turns to Master Security for help. One problem. The man assigned the task is antisocial to the nth degree. But Stella’s faced worse than him and kept smiling. She’ll bring him out of his shell if it kills her.
Unfortunately, it’s the killing her part that has Burke worried. Can he keep her safe? Can he survive her endless cheerfulness? Or will they both become victims of a psycho’s game?
