Revenge is awesome, but unless it’s contagious, or acquiring a domino effect, why is a woman—without known relatives, a discernible past, or enemies—now the focus of a personal vendetta?
A throwaway at birth, ward of the state until adoption, iffy sexual relationships, all interactions devoid of love—an emotion she has no reason to believe exists. He’s a covert federal enforcer, whose private life consists of as-needed sexual hookups. He embraces the lifestyle.
Family crisis brings Vi Leon and Christopher Corbett together. An irrefutable attraction becomes explosive passion. They spend nights satisfying mutual needs, then return to their separate cynical lifestyles, a decision that might cost them their lives, when Vi realizes she’s pregnant. Afraid the nature of his job will put her and the baby at risk, she conceals the pregnancy and birth from him, until fate intervenes.
The son of an alleged crime family has Corbett under surveillance when a personal emergency reunites him and Vi. The man redirects his attention to Vi and discovers her link to Christopher. Verifying her worst fears, not only do Vi and her child become pawns in the deadly subterfuge of Christopher’s operation, but killing them becomes crucial to the endgame.
