A serial killer…
A past that haunts no matter how much the distance…
Which one will strike first?

Eighteen deaths over eight years has left Shane Peters itching to find his mark. The death that started it all ensured his obsession with the murderer who had turned his life into a living hell, leaving him to raise a newborn daughter on his own.

Starting over wasn’t the easiest thing, but Emberlyn Roth had managed by shear grit and the skin of her teeth. It’s too bad one can’t outrun their past.

A protector of the wronged, Shane is torn between his duty as a detective for the Jacksonville PD and a quest to find himself some peace. Red tape binds his capabilities and moonlighting as an investigator for Nightshade Securities has him feeling stretched thin. Late nights on the streets and his sense of duty keeps him from being the father he wants to be. Throw onto his already rickety house of cards, an attraction to the mysterious Emberlyn, the lead he’s got on the murderer he’s been hunting for nearly a decade, and threats his woman is receiving by an unsavory character from her past, and he’s seriously tempted to take Dalton Kipper’s offer to join his team in a permanent basis.

Rules have a place, but when you’re faced with losing the one that means most to you, lines can become blurred. With the fate of his family’s future hanging in the balance, he’s ready to risk it all.


This book here, had me on the edge of my seat the whole time. I couldn’t put it down.

Love Shane and how he loves his daughter. Love how Rosie is like her dad and will tell you like it is. A mini alpha female in the making.
There is always a female needing help! Emberlyn who is running from her past, trying her best to keep to herself has found a friend in a little girl. Roise is sweet, loving and once you’re friends with her, you’re family.

Shane who is a police detective and has been on a case for a very long time, has his hands full with his daughter and now his neighbor. A case that touched so close to home for him.

There were twists and turns that you didn’t see coming. Like I said it had me on the edge of my seat. Who would’ve know that Emberlyn and Shane would be connected in more ways than one?

Great read, if you read the first book, you will see some of the characters in this book.
I would like to how the 3rd book plays out, who is the alpha male and the female he will be pursuing!!
