Ivy League college professor Ellen Layne and her two kids are spending the summer in NYC with her very famous uncle, the star of a late night TV talk show. Recently divorced, it’s her summer of crazy indulgences—and when she meets Sam Schaefer, a New York police detective who’s much too handsome, much too smooth, and much, much too young, she doesn’t say no, thinking their steamy encounter in the back of a limo is one-and-done.
But Sam knows what he likes and he wants more. And when he keeps calling, Ellen’s "Oh, yes" becomes a heartfelt "No way"—he’s funny, and smart, and pretty damn perfect, and she knows it won’t take much for her to fall for him, hard. (He’s too handsome, too smooth, and ridiculously young.)
But when Ellen’s uncle starts getting threatening letters from a clearly unhinged and dangerous stalker, the NYPD is called in and of course Sam’s assigned the case. Ellen tries to avoid him, but he’s around day and night, and sparks start to fly...

Bakery owner Elizabeth Hamilton's quiet life is filled with sweet treats, good friends, and a loving family. But all of that is about to turn sour when an odd sound draws her outside. There's a man lying unconscious in the street, a car speeding toward him. Without hesitation, she gets the man out of harm's way before they're run down.
Unwittingly, Elizabeth has put herself in the path of a serial murderer, and as the only one who can identify the FBI's Silver Fox Killer, she's ended up in the hospital with a target on her back.
All that stands between her and death is Special Agent Sam Turner. Against his better judgment, Sam gets emotionally involved, determined to take down the double threat against Elizabeth—an ex desperate to get her back, despite a restraining order, and a psychopath bent on silencing her before she can identify him.
They set a trap to catch the killer—putting Elizabeth in his hands, with Sam desperate to save her. If he's lucky, he'll get his man . . . and the girl.
He doesn't need to say it back. I know how he feels.
Even if he doesn't have the balls to admit it.
Our daughter will be here soon, and our lives will change forever.
Will Cato let go of the past? Let go of the promise he made to execute me?
Or should I have never come back?
