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 week they narrowly escaped a house fire which Gage believes to have been rigged. Now, he’s relaying the details to his boss, Maverick, via phone.

Maverick’s ability to spew profanity had improved significantly in the handful of months since Gage signed on. It took a good sixty seconds before Gage could understand a word Maverick said . . . or maybe it just took that long for him to say anything intelligible. Either way, it was impressive.

“What the hell were you thinking going into his house? I told you—”

“You told me not to kill him,” Gage said, cutting him off and earning a sharp look of alarm from Riley. “And I didn’t touch him.”

“You burned down his house.”

“No, he burned down his house. The question is, why.”

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.
