Ten years ago, Riley Lord lost everything. He watched his boss murder his pregnant wife in cold blood for a stupid mistake. Left for dead, Riley vows to kill the man who took everything from him—and intends to die in the process.
Meghan Short doesn’t want to get tangled up with one of the most dangerous men in the city. When she rejects him, she knows she has to skip town. She makes one mistake and is taken, beaten, and being prepared for much worse when Riley comes to her rescue. He saves her. Helps her. Then of course, he leaves her. It’s the story of her life.
When someone is sent to kill Meghan again, Riley is there. He couldn’t walk away from her. He was supposed to. His life wasn’t meant to have complications, but … now he has Meghan to protect. He was supposed to die to get his revenge, but Meghan has gotten under his skin, and he can’t imagine living without her, let alone dying for someone else.
Will Riley kill the person who took from him, or finally find peace and love with the woman willing to risk everything just for him?
