By the time she discovers he omitted a small detail—he’s newly single—the kisses they shared “just for show” have sunk their hooks way under her skin. And she’s spent an unforgettable night in his arms.
But there’s someone else who’s been following Jo’s every move, and his subtle threats are about to take a chilling turn that could force her to make a terrible choice to keep Marco safe…
