"...it was all I could do to not call in sick so that I could finish the book in just one sitting."Elena has no plans for romance.Her plate is full with trying to stay alive, getting to know the new sibling in her life, and solving a murder that seems to have been dropped on the DeVitis family’s doorstep. She’s spent her entire adult life trying to prove that she’s a smart and capable woman who’s able to take care of herself. But ultimately, when the danger that’s dogged her for as long as she can remember suddenly becomes overwhelming, will Elena need to depend on the man with bedroom eyes and movie star good looks who keeps inserting himself into her life, claiming to have only her safety in mind?
Erik didn’t ask to be given the job of protecting Elena DeVitis. She’s the most stubborn, difficult woman he’s ever met. But despite her hard outer shell, and the way she constantly keeps him at arm’s length, there’s a certain vulnerability in the beautiful heiress’s eyes. He knows she’s fighting to appear strong and self-sufficient, but he’s worried for her life. And beyond that, he’s concerned about the feelings between them, which are growing stronger by the moment.
A conspiracy, a murder, an ongoing pursuit. Everything seems to be coming to a head. And as it does, members of the DeVitis family will be put into new and deadly situations. And there remains at least one life-changing surprise for them all.
