Gabrielle thinks she has finally escaped a painful past but witnessing a crime brings a whole new nightmare. She doesn't remember them but they certainly remember her and after finding her, terror follows. That's when her best friends' father, Victor, brings in Donovan, a man brought out of his regular routine to protect Gabrielle and help flush out her tormentors so justice can ensue. Gabrielle doesn't expect this man with his devastating bad-boy looks to have an old-fashioned charm and thoughtful attitude unlike anything she's ever seen, and Donovan soon learns she's nothing like the women who have burned him before. Danger mounts when he discovers they share more than just a reason to distrust as part of their pasts collide. Now he must not only fight for their lives, but a chance at something neither thought they'd have.
