For Skye Winters, criminal profiling is the perfect career: helping solve cases without all the emotional baggage. When her cousin, Kortney, becomes the latest in a string of young women to vanish, Skye’s professional and personal lives collide. Cue the nuclear mushroom cloud.
Amid the fallout, Skye meets Wes Carson, the mysterious, smart-mouthed new biker in her father’s motorcycle club. She tries to ignore their chemistry, even after accepting Wes’ aid in the search for Kort. Then one spontaneous afternoon takes them over the edge, forcing Skye to consider she might be in love. Too bad it’s with a liar.
Untangling Wes' web of secrets leaves Skye ensnared in an active FBI investigation, making her question her profiling skills and her heart. When affection overrules her caution, both her life and Kort’s are left hanging in the balance. If Skye can’t piece together the clues, she will be taken down by leather and lies.
