She wants to hide the past
FBI Special Agent Samantha Kennedy is haunted by memories of the serial killer who abducted her. To keep the darkness at bay, she pretends to be a different, more confident woman. This Samantha doesn't fear every unknown face. So she throws caution to the wind and shares a night of unbridled passion with a handsome stranger.

He needs to uncover the truth
One night isn't enough for successful entrepreneur Max Ridgeway. He wants more of the sexy, smart, mysterious woman who slipped away before dawn. When they meet again, their attraction is undeniable-until his stepbrother goes missing, and Max realizes that Samantha isn't who she seems. But they must trust each other to trap a ring of bloodthirsty kidnappers before the nightmares that terrorize Sam become irrevocably real.

As a merciless criminal spins a web of . . .

Samantha Kennedy was abducted, tortured, and killed in Deadly Fear. But she was brought back. Over and over. The killer drowned her and resuscitated her so many times she lost count. In this book, she is back with the SSD, and her latest case is closer than she knows.


In trying to get some form of control back over her life, Sam decides she wants sex with someone who won’t look at her like a victim, or like they’re waiting for her to break. When she sees Max Ridgeway at a bar, she decides he’s the one. And when she sees him at a society event a couple weeks later, he decides he won’t let her escape from him again.


But something outside of their control happens. A kidnapping ring that the SSD is working on tracking abducts Max’s stepbrother Quinlan and demands a ransom. Sam can’t leave Max’s side, but he doesn’t know she’s FBI. And when the kidnappers say no cops or Quinlan dies, Sam knows that Max will hate her forever for forcing her way into this.


This book started off with action, and it never let down. There was absolutely no downtime and my heart was pounding the entire time I read it.


This book kept me guessing and kept my heart pounding.
