When computer program designer Zoraya "Zoe" Lombardo wakes up next to her business partner's dead body with a gun in her hand and no memory of what happened, the first thing she does is run. Next, she calls the one person she trusts to help her--the man she walked away from two years ago. He's not as bossy as she remembers, but he's sexier than ever. She made a mistake not listening to his warnings, and she's more than willing to kiss and make up...if she can just stay alive long enough.
Zak Delaney, partner in Guardian Security, never expected to hear from his ex-fiancée again. After Zoe left, it took him a long time to put himself back together. Now, he must cast aside his hurt and anger in order to protect her. He'll have to rely on his resources at Guardian to clear her name and use every ounce of his self-control not to fall for her charms again. But as danger closes in, he will have to learn to trust Zoe as much as she trusts him or face losing her again...and this time for good.
