Jared Knight works for international governments together with a select group of colleagues, tracking down the worst criminals humanity has to offer. His highly secretive and dangerous profession leaves no time or freedom for relationships, especially not with the gently raised daughter of a prominent diplomat who catches his eye in the glittering ballrooms of Monaco.
Despite his attraction, he vows to keep Cecilia Benedict in his past, until an unknown stalker threatens her future.
Cecilia has been receiving letters from an admirer, one who knows far too much about her. Her father seeks help in dealing with the growing menace and Jared steps out of the shadows to become her protector. Cecilia finds herself intensely intrigued by this quiet man with deep grey eyes, and when they are emotionally thrown together, he becomes so much more than just her bodyguard.
But someone is biding his time in the shadows, threatening to destroy their relationship before it can even begin.
