Tough, relentless and a force to be reckoned with, Cord Romero lives for the adrenaline rush that comes with being a mercenary for hire. Risking his neck is all in a day's work.
But this time the job is personal.
Having barely survived a murder attempt, Cord is looking for vengeance. But to get to his target it means joining forces with Maggie Barton.
No longer the impressionable young woman he once knew, Maggie is strong and independent - and an expert in a profession that places her as Cord's equal. But a tragic secret from Maggie's past threatens her relationship with Cord . . . and makes her a pawn for his deadly enemy.
Forced to trust each other for their very survival, Cord and Maggie embark on a lethal game of cat and mouse that can leave only one winner standing.
