She’s a journalist who always gets her story.
He’s an FBI agent who’ll die to keep her safe.
Their divorce is final, but a killer will ensure their future ends in flames.
When investigative journalist Arden Olsen discovers her mentor’s smoldering remains, she’s determined to expose the killer. But the FBI’s lead case agent—her ex-husband—will do whatever it takes to keep her from getting involved.
FBI Special Agent Lawson Mitchell has been burned before—by the media and by Arden. He knows she’s not going to let the story go, so as the killer escalates, keeping his ex-wife close is the only way to keep her safe.
As one of the most vengeful serial killers he’s ever hunted closes in, Lawson realizes he can’t change the past, but he can damned well show her they still have a future. If they survive.
“Arden?” That voice. His voice. She’d prayed every night she’d forget how her name on his lips warmed the darkest stretches of her insides, but her traitorous body hadn’t forgotten him in the least. “What… What are you doing here?”
Gravity increased its hold on her legs as Special Agent Lawson Mitchell of the FBI’s Violent Crimes Unit closed in on her. Apprehension climbed up her spine, the light touch at her elbow from the sheriff’s deputy a distant sensation. Thick eyebrows and dark, styled hair shaped a perfectly symmetrical and chiseled jawline and brought out the color in his storm gray eyes. His pristine navy-blue suit and white button-down shirt begged for relief from the mountainous stretch of muscled shoulders beneath the fabric. Every inch of the man she’d tried to forget triggered her instincts to run. Not out of danger but something far more terrifying: remembered attraction.
