A journalist and an FBI agent team up to bring down a cop killer in master storyteller Patricia Potter’s thrilling and seductive novel of romantic suspense

Atlanta journalist Robin Stuart has never seen a dead body before. Murder is a rarity in scenic, tranquil Meredith County. Now three cops lie on the ground of an overgrown property slated for private development. Each one was handcuffed and killed, execution style, by a bullet to the back of the head. This could be the story that makes Robin’s career—but she can’t stop thinking about the families of the victims.
 
FBI agent Ben Taylor isn’t a team player and doesn’t trust the media. Although the triple homicide is out of the FBI’s jurisdiction, he is convinced that the murders are connected to Hydra, the Southern Mafia crime ring he’s been investigating. Robin may have valuable information, but the beautiful reporter will never reveal her source—until her relentless digging brings both sides of the law after her. As unwanted desire flares, Ben must protect Robin from cold-blooded killers determined to keep the true story from ever seeing the light of day.

Author's Note: This is a dark series with triggers, violence, and mature themes that may make some readers uncomfortable.

I have debts to pay and secrets to keep. When someone threatens my life, I crash into him: Jackson Ludlow

The recluse billionaire of New York

Once, he had everything a man could want. Then, he lost the only thing that he ever loved.


So, he spent four years holed up in his mansion doing the only thing he knew how to do: make money. 


We are all wrong for each other. He’s cold, uninterested and demanding. 

I’m impatient and inexperienced. 


The only thing we have in common is that we both have secrets. 

And the closer we get, the more they threaten to destroy us.
