SHE SEES HIM IN HER DREAMS…
Fueled by her family’s murder years ago, Dr. Marlena Bender has devoted her life to understanding violent criminals. But when a serial killer in this small Southern town starts taking the lives of women in diabolical ways–leaving trophies of his kills on Marlena’s doorstep–it all hits too close to home. Terrified, Marlena turns to the only man she can trust…the man who saved her life.
BUT HIS SECRET IS HER WORST NIGHTMARE.
Sheriff Dante Valtrez would move heaven and earth to keep Marlena safe, but he’s not the savior she thinks he is. A dark legacy runs through his blood and a dangerous secret lies within him. Now a fierce, hot, ruthless desire draws Dante and Marlena together–as a demonic force from his past threatens to rip them apart, destroying everything they hold dear.
