When Staff Sergeant Rowan McKinley is charged with murder, she wants the best defense counsel the Marine Corps has to offer—Captain Phillip Stuart. Seeking his help means opening old wounds. It’s a risk she must take to save herself.
Phillip swore he’d never have anything to do with the one woman who had not only broken his heart but had crushed it. Helping her was personal suicide. But professionally, it could be the coup de grace of his career—that next rung on the ladder, the next challenge he was looking for.
The love and passion each thought gone sparks to life—only now it is forbidden by military law. Knowing the rules and adhering to them are very different matters. But who should make the sacrifice when both are destined to soar to the top of their ranks?
The choice might be taken from their hands. There is a killer with just as much to lose who will stop at nothing to protect his identity, even if that means threatening the one link between Phillip and Rowan—the son Phillip never knew he had.

It’s an arrangement that works exceedingly well. In fact, it sizzles. Never has either met a person they were more sexually compatible with--trust, adventure, play, and soul-screaming fulfillment. Do they dare take step they swore they’d always avoid? Why not?
Then the murders begin. One by one Declan’s patients are being eliminated. How far will their trust of each other go now? Especially when Pam views the crime scene photos and finds the victims bound to their beds, the killer having used the same type of knot Declan uses during their sex play.
Declan begins to have his own doubts. Did he harbor a future murderer years before when he refused to report his first wife for attacking him with a knife? Is she the culprit? She knew each victim. But so did Pam. Each victim also wasn’t shy about her attraction to him. Now that he and Pam have moved into a romantic relationship, how does he know jealousy hasn’t come into play?
As the pieces of the puzzle come together, they learn someone else has an agenda. Someone who will do anything, kill anyone, to keep Declan.
