Francey Neeley s life has been torn to pieces. Her handsome and charming Irish boyfriend turned out to be a terrorist who was only after her fortune and planned to kill her once he got it. His "sister" forced Francey to help her attempt a rescue when his cover was blown during a mission to assassinate a world leader. Francey barely escaped with her life in the shoot-out.
Now Francey s secluded herself amidst the beautiful, healing atmosphere of Belle Reste, her cousin s resort on a Jamaican island. She s emotionally shattered and remains under a cloud of suspicion even after being interrogated by every major law enforcement agency.
Warning bells go off from the moment British school teacher Michael Dowd arrives to recuperate from a car accident. Though he s obviously recovering from serious injuries, she sees glimpses of a coldly efficient predator that make her wary of her intense attraction to him. She made one horrible mistake already . . .
Michael Dowd is there to find out the truth about her involvement; he ll seduce her if that s what it takes. And if he learns she was one of the terrorists, he ll kill her.
But someone on the island is trying to kill them both. How will Francey know who to trust when Michael disappears and reappears as a perfect stranger? Who is the villain, and who is the savior? The wrong answer means death.
