Security agent Dante Moran can't afford the luxury of love -- in his line of work, emotions can get you killed. Besides, he's never recovered from the pain of losing his high school sweetheart to a serial rapist and killer. But when he's hired to find Tessa Westbrook's missing daughter, Dante's long-buried emotions rise to the surface. Tessa stirs something in him that he hasn't felt since he was a kid . . . something that makes him think she could become more than a client.
