Gage and Riley were once lovers, but a deadly twist of fate tore them apart. Now, one year later, they’re thrown together by a murder in which Gage was the intended victim and Riley is wanted for the crime. Last time they tracked down someone who might offer answers, but found his house didn’t look lived in. So Gage peered through the windows and found something *very* interesting inside, and it wasn’t all the junk you’ll see here, LOL!

Riley took a deep breath, this time sucking in more than the scent of vermin. “Gage, I smell smoke.”

The scent grew stronger with every passing second. There hadn’t been a trace of it when they walked through the back door, and already the odor was unmistakable.

He paused, his hand on a stack of papers. “Me, too. Out, now.”

She whirled around, swallowing panic when she saw the sea of boxes and junk they’d climbed over blocking the way to the door. Smoke navigated the ceiling-high stacks like clouds maneuvering mountaintops, the acrid scent thickening and growing heavy in the air.

Seconds later, flames followed, attacking both exits from the room at once.

Riley Beckett’s past just came back to haunt her . . . and this time, he’s got a gun.

When Gage Lawton finds his brother shot dead on his back porch, every shred of evidence points to one person: Gage’s former lover, Riley. He and she didn’t part ways on good terms, and he’s not planning to rekindle anything now–not when he’s got a revolver pointed at her head and a finger on the trigger.

A year after Riley swore she and Gage were over, he returns in a hail of gunfire. One look into those achingly familiar blue eyes and she knows how wrong she was to let him go, but now far more than their heated past stands in the way. A twist of fate puts them in the crosshairs of a killer, leaving Riley with two slim options:  trust her greatest betrayer or face a murderer on her own.
