When he realizes Marissa is the niece of his prime suspect, he crosses a line guaranteed to put in jeopardy both his life and his beloved career.

Scott and Marissa don’t trust anyone at the moment, but will this adventure bring them close or will the sins of the past tear them apart.
A great romantic suspense. This book kept me on my feet, a lot of twists and turns to make it interesting but the story line was explained at the end. Another great read from this author. I highly recommend.
