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, devastated by Gage’s lie, Riley took his truck without a word of protest from Gage. Now he’s stranded, and he’s just listened to a voicemail from his boss, Maverick, indicating they’ve hit yet another dead end.

Perfect. Gage ended the call, determined there was no future for him in investigation. Two solid days of trying to figure out why his brother was dead and Riley a target, and all Gage had was a pile of random facts and a long walk home.

And memories of loving Riley that would have to sustain him for a long time to come, because she didn’t look in the mood for forgiveness.

But first things first. She was still wanted by the law, and after dragging her into this mess, he at least wanted to set her free from it. Whatever that meant.

Whatever it took.

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.
