Becca needs Nick, as her brother may have been kidnapped. She just wasn’t expecting to want him so much. As their investigation turns into all-out war with an organized crime ring, only Nick can keep her safe. And only Becca can heal the deep, hidden scars. Desire is the easy part. Love is as hard as it gets. Lucky thing Nick loves a challenge!
