West Coast FBI Director Victor Dupé has always known it was his mission to stand up to bullies and protect the weak. Being a powerful leader though has its drawbacks – he must keep his own vulnerable side hidden, and not let anyone get too close. He aces that every day, until the first moment he meets Olivia Fiorelli and realizes he’s found someone worth the risk of opening his heart to.
US Marshall Olivia Fiorelli has only one goal in life – destroy organized crime. Doing so might help her sleep at night and alleviate the guilt she feels over the murders her hitman father has committed. Running a dangerous undercover sting with mobster-turned-informant, Alfonzo Barone, leads her to the sexy FBI director’s doorstep – and sets a deadly plot into motion.
As their explosive desire erupts, the two race against a killer who hides in the shadows, viciously taking his personal revenge on Victor and those closest to him. The director has finally found someone worth holding on to, but will Olivia become the killer’s last, and ultimate, target?
