Lyra Collins thought she was safe, hiding in a sleepy artists’ community in Arizona. Having escaped from a cult five years ago, she keeps a low profile, making a living as a sculptor. But when a mysterious man with a dark, dangerous look appears on her doorstep, she knows it’s time to run again.
Former lawman, now PI, Dare Lancaster accidentally leads a bunch of fanatical cult members straight to Lyra’s door. Now it’s up to him to protect her. The danger, as well as their growing attraction, is greater than anything’s he’s ever faced before.
Neal Barker, the grandson of the first Prophet Jericho, rules the Temple of Light commune unchecked. According to his visions, he and Lyra are destined to produce the new Messiah, so he will stop at nothing to make her his own. Dare soon discovers just how far he’s willing to go to safeguard Lyra—and never let her go.
