Polly is a successful TV personality with a heavy, malicious weight on her shoulders—her ex-husband, Sam.
Nasty Ferrito, ex-Navy SEAL, falls hard for the small screen beauty and Polly isn't fighting the attraction as strongly as she thinks she is.
In a town with its own guilty secrets, a shadowy menace more complicated than she or Nasty could have imagined closes in. Every pleasure has its price and every desire its dangerous side. Love changes everything.
"A wonderful, fast-paced, furious page-turner…" The Philadelphia Enquirer
"Stella Cameron is a master storyteller with the ability to surprise us again and again. Get ready to laugh, cry, and lose sleep!" NYT bestselling author, Susan Elizabeth Phillips.
Polly Crow's opportunity to host a TV children's show allows her a welcomed new life with her young son. When she meets ex-Navy Seal Nasty (an inapt nickname) Ferrito, Polly's new life begins to look like a carnival sideshow where kooks, kinky and dangerous, take aim. She receives phone threats, she's attacked, spied upon, nearly drowned and is taken hostage. Cameron keeps the reader ever vigilant, unsure where the danger lies. Eventually, it's clear that Nasty is the main target of an elaborate collusion to even an old score from his Navy days. Cameron (Pure Delights) manages the neat trick of delving into sordid troubles and twisted minds while delivering a rock-solid romance in the midst.
