Synopsis: Kylie Tate is highly successful and focused on her future. No one sees the fear that consumes her, ravaged by demons from a past that left her distrustful of love. Alex Stone is rarely denied. Not by business associates, and certainly not the women he dates and forgets. Romance is never an option. That is until beautiful, sexy, too damned independent Kylie comes into his life and frustrates the hell out of him. She sparks a desire in him to protect her from the one demon that haunts her - and threatens to destroy them both. Pushed to her limit and unwilling to be a victim any longer, Kylie takes control of her life. But a madman’s quest for revenge not only threatens to destroy the love she has finally found – but also her life. Buy The Book
