Filled with regret over his rocky past, Reece Morgan has no desire to go home after ten years away. But when Billie Bradshaw becomes the target of killers, he returns to defend her with a vengeance born of salvation. He charges to the rescue, only to realize she´s the bait to tempt him into the open. Billie has a choice to make. She can risk violent death, or allow the man she considers her worst nightmare - the man she´s already loved and lost, the man who fell off the grid a long time ago, taking her heart along for the ride - to keep her safe. What could be worse? Maybe the fact he´s unknowingly brought death to her door. As Billie and Reece follow the twisted trail of a psychotic mind, their reignited passion takes a front row seat in their struggle to stay alive. 1. Language: English. Narrator: Henry McNulty.
