He killed my best friend when we were only girls…but I got away.
Now he’s hunting me again.
Well-renowned anthropologist and religious studies expert, Dr. Brooke Heaton, came face to face with evil as a ten-year-old, barely escaping a vicious, ritualistic serial killer. Now The Reverend, her childhood attacker, is hunting her once more, determined not to let her get away this time—and there’s only one man who can keep her alive.
Homeland Security agent Roman Walsh wants two things: to end The Reverend’s reign of terror, and to get the sexy Dr. Heaton into his bed. When the two goals collide, can he keep his own deadly secrets buried?
Agreeing to consult on The Reverend’s case, little does Brooke realize the emotional chunk it will carve out of her soul and the burning need Roman will ignite inside her. She’ll have one last chance to stop the killer, or the ghost from her past will get his cold-blooded revenge—on her and everyone she cares about—once and for all.
