Talk about trouble; Kyra is knee deep in it. She's barely in town twenty-four hours when a murder occurs. Since she and the deceased are from the same city and she's on the sheriff's bad list, she's a suspect.

With the realization that Kyra is the intended target of a hit, Kevin sets out to protect her in his own way. He thinks his plan is working, until the next murder victim is discovered. Kevin starts to unravel a mystery, and when the killer comes out of the shadows, Kevin's own life is in danger.
He soon discovers that falling in love with Kyra Chase is anything but simple.
