Meadow Holiday was off-limits.
Completely. Totally. Out of bounds.
And achingly beautiful.
With a shiny new badge clipped to my belt, I thought I could save the world or at least protect those I loved.
A sadistic serial killer proved me wrong.
The only way to keep Meadow safe was to break the rules, keep her close, and claim her as my own. Only she proved to be harder to catch than the lunatic running around on a murder spree.
I had no business falling in love in the middle of an investigation. But she's the one, I feel it deep in bones.
Special Agent Nick Clark gave me hope.
He was so far out of my league it was laughable.
So damn good looking it hurt to look at him.
He was everything I'd dreamed of having, but knew I'd never have.
His charm was irresistible, and the first time he kissed me I stupidly fell in love.
He promised me a world I thought was long ago stolen from me.
A fairytale where a sexy FBI agent saves the scared and scarred girl.
Just when Nick breaks down the fortress I'd built to protect myself and pushes through my doubts - it's too late.
The villain in our story has come for me.
I knew better than to believe in happily ever afters.
