Ex-con John Stark knows all about crime and punishment. As far as the State's concerned, he's paid his debt to society, but John's still paying for the night he broke all his rules. The night he gave in to his desire for Sara Keegan.
Now the only mother he's ever known is dead. Murdered. The cops are useless. The case closed. If John wants Justice, he'll have to get it on his own, and there's only one person he trusts enough to have his back.
Sara Keegan's always known what she wanted and never apologized for it. That includes her one night with the only man she's ever loved. When tragedy brings her home and face-to-face with John again, neither can deny their attraction burns hotter than ever.
Together, John and Sara must tackle the past while taking on the most dangerous man in the city—a deadly foe who'll stop at nothing to bury the truth…and them right along with it.
