Hunter Lawe, rides the narrow line between enforcing the law and breaking it. An undercover cop, he witnesses the worst of human trafficking and drugs. But lies and betrayal are not new to him.

Ruby Leigh Dupree is on the run from a past she can’t remember to a place she doesn’t know. Waking up in her car, broken and bloody, the same refrain echoes over and over in her mind. Run. Hide. Don’t look back. You’ll be safe in Spencer, Colorado. After a month in hiding in the quiet little town, her body has healed but the night terrors persist.
The first time Hunter met Ruby Leigh he turned her away when she offered him more lies. The next time, he realizes she’s his opportunity to finally get his nemesis. He’ll use her with no regrets, regardless of the cost.
