She used to think his tattoos were sexy–before she knew just what they meant. Seven years after he vanished without a trace, and one degree in criminal psychology later, Eleanor never expected to find herself on an assignment in Moscow that would bring her face-to-face with Sergei Ivanov.
He was the flame that left her in smoldering ruins so many years before, haunted by his broken promises. Left pregnant and alone to recollect the pieces of her life, she swore never to make the same mistake again. But that was before–before he walked through the door and they locked eyes, before they went back to her hotel together for drinks and nothing more, before it became everything more.
Seven years ago his father called him home and Sergei made one of the most painful decisions of his life. He left Eleanor before the darkness in his family had a chance to consume her. He never could have imagined that his sister's death would put their lives on a new collision course.
From the moment their eyes meet, he knows she's still his. They're supposed to be focused on finding a killer, and Sergei has secrets of his own to keep, but every look at Eleanor tells him that she's hiding something too–and he'll be damned if he doesn't find out what.
