Her first love is back. Is she making a mistake or is the second time the charm?
They say your first love is unforgettable, but Allison Southby would love to forget. Thankfully, she’s always had her work to keep her mind off her non-existent love life. But when her boss and mentor dies mysteriously, and a rival company threatens to steal their customers, her focus should be on preserving her mentor’s legacy and the company she loves…and yet, she can’t keep her mind—or her hands—off her late boss’s son, Adam. Who just happens to be the same man who left her heart in pieces when he ran from her bed after a single night together, and has kept her at arm’s length ever since.
Detective Adam Byrnes needs to get back to the life he’s built in Phoenix. Sure, it’s far from his family, but it also keeps him away from Allison…and temptation. But between the questions surrounding his father’s death, and keeping Allison safe, he can’t seem to leave the city of Chicago.
With danger swirling around them, can they find the love they once shared?
Heartbreak and danger follow wherever she goes, but can his love save her before her past destroys their future?
Brooklyn Southby has everything she’s ever wanted—partnership in a law firm, a beautiful house in the suburbs, and a wonderful boyfriend. Well, ex-boyfriend. Her heart troubles are the least of her problems, though, when her first case comes back to haunt her in the form of an angry, sadistic man with bad hair.
Joe Perretti deals with his own issues the only way he knows how—hiding behind his work. As a homicide detective with the Chicago Police Department, there’s never enough hours in the day for a social life or a woman, at least until he’s given the task of protecting Brooklyn Southby.
Business and pleasure collide as his life becomes all about keeping her safe, whether she likes it or not.
Will they find love, or will they be destroyed by a man who is stark raving mad?
Julie Connolly thought she had perfected the art of emotional eating, but ever since she learned of her father’s passing, she’s taken it to new heights. The bastard has figured out how to destroy her life from the grave.
Her father’s proposal—abandon her son Cody, so someone else can raise him, or lose her inheritance. The outrageous condition doesn’t deserve a response but the lawyer her father hired demands an answer. Before she can tell the ambulance-chaser exactly where he can shove his demands, her worst fears come alive: Cody is kidnapped. Her only hope comes from Ben Mooring, a man she hates nearly as much as her father.
Though Ben Mooring lost his chance with Julie years ago, she and Cody still mean the world to him. He practically raised the kid for years when he was with Julie. When Cody goes missing, Ben drops everything to search for him. He might never win a spot in Julie’s life again, but he can’t rest while Cody is in danger and Julie needs him.
Julie and Ben join forces to find Cody, but they have to work quickly. If she doesn’t find him soon, she will lose her son forever.
