After asking the wrong people the wrong questions, Shannon Brown barely escapes with her life and crosses paths with a handsome outlaw who cannot resist a lady in distress. Moved by the troubled stranger, Derek Ross agrees to help Shannon elude her pursuers. But the ferocity of his desire for Shannon stuns him . . . and mystifies her. She's known so much hurt in matters of the heart how can Derek be any different?
Drawn into a shadowy world of danger and deception, Shannon is reborn in the arms of a man who lives by no one's rules.

But trusting Derek might cost Shannon deeply, as she wonders whether this outlaw is hers to keep or merely an intoxicating illusion.
