Security agent Dante Moran can't afford the luxury of love in his line of work, emotions can get you killed. Besides, he's never recovered from the pain of losing his high school sweetheart to a serial rapist and killer.
But when he's hired to find Tessa Westbrook's missing teenage daughter, Dante is shocked to feel his long-buried emotions rise to the surface. Tessa stirs something in him that he hasn't felt since he was a kid...something that makes him think she could become more than a client. But Tessa's past is full of secrets....and with a killer on the loose, Dante must decide if she's worth dying for — or a reason to live.
