After decades of stealing, Milo Baxter is finally free and making an honest living. But no amount of hard work can break the chains that bind him to Serena Metcalf. Years have passed, but when she shows up in his bar, he knows he's never stopped loving her—even though he forced her out of his life twice.
Having been raised as a criminal, Serena never dreamed she'd climb to the top of San Diego's number-one real estate agency. Then a car accident results in a life-or-death chase through the city, and she flees to Milo's bar for safety. Their past blows up in her face, but before she can leave, she gets a devastating call: her sister's been kidnapped.
Milo's the only one who can help her with one last heist—lifting diamonds from her new potential client for her sister's ransom. The clock is ticking, and Serena isn't the only one with something to lose. Both she and Milo could lose their hearts, but first, they must fight to not lose their lives.
