The road to love is paved in the dark.
Dillon Hart atoned for a troubled youth by joining the U.S. Merchant Marine. But when he returned home from service, his little brother was in jail and his sister missing. After four painful years of searching that led only to heartache, everything changes when a blast from the past darkens his door.
Crime reporter Maggie Marx will do anything it takes to get the story. But what she really wants is revenge on the gang who left her for dead. When she brings a battered woman to a shelter, she’s shocked to learn the owner is her handsome former rival.
Discovering she has information that could lead to his sister, Dillon puts aside their differences to hunt the criminals who wronged them both. And as the trail heats up, so does the chemistry between the two sleuths. But when Maggie’s source brings her too close to the truth, their wakening romance may end with their lives.
Will walking the path of vengeance bring Dillon and Maggie together or tear them apart forever?
