Avery Coppola is a woman on the run-not from the law, but from the lawless. Her ex-husband, mafia boss Dante Coppola, never forgets or forgives, especially since Avery stole incriminating files from him. For now, she's found sanctuary in the North Country of New Hampshire, working as a waitress to support herself and her ten-year-old sister. But not only are Dante's men on her trail, so is the FBI . . .
Special Agent Vincent Modena is at the end of his rope. After a year-long attempt to infiltrate the Coppola organization, his only chance to ensnare the crime lord now lies with the ex-wife. After locating her,
Vincent makes contact, unafraid to use his good looks to capture Avery's attention. But she turns the tables on him with an intoxicating combination of innocent beauty . . . and the mind-blowing skills of a stone-cold killer.
On the run from Dante's hit men, Avery takes Vincent on a wild ride of danger and deceit, hiding a secret that could destroy Vincent's trust in her-and in himself . . .
