I’ve worked hard to rebuild the life I nearly destroyed.
I don’t think I could ever atone for all my sins, but Landon might be my salvation.
If we can survive a brewing drug war.
The private investigation firm I’ve started with my brother could be my shot at redemption. Our first case: find the supplier of Rapture, a new, lethal drug being sold on the streets. I’m determined to do some good and make up for the sins of my past.
One of those sins just walked through the door, and her name is Landon Roberts. Two years ago, a chance meeting in an empty bar led to the most intense connection of my life. The anguish in her eyes echoed the pain inside me, and for a single night we offered each other comfort. Until the morning when she disappeared without a trace.
Now, she’s the D.E.A. agent tasked with finding and eliminating the source behind Rapture. Which means I plan on spending a lot of time with her, because I have no intention of letting her get away again.
But the powerful man behind the lethal drug won’t let anyone stand in his way of his making money. Can Landon and I survive long enough to find love and atonement?
The front door opened behind me, and I spun on my heel, my hand instinctively going for my gun. Sun blinded me briefly, and I could only see the outline of the person entering, but as he stepped forward, the door closely slowly, blocking out the rays, I recognized his face.
“Preston?” My voice rose in shock. “What are you doing here?”
I shoved back the part of me that reared to life at seeing him.
“I’m here following a lead. I assume you’re here for the same reason.”
“Yes, but no luck.”
His chin jerked in Grant’s direction. “He not talking?”
I turned back to the bartender. “I’ll be back with a warrant.” It wouldn’t be easy securing one without probable cause, but I’d do my best. “Thank you for the information. Here’s my card. If the name of that other bartender comes to you, give me a call, will you?”
He took my card with a nod. I made my way to the door, taking care with my footsteps, unable to avoid walking past Preston.
We both turned back at my name.
“I believe Mr. King spends a lot of time at Monteverde over on Madison.”
I nodded in appreciation and stepped out into the cold, ignoring the man hot on my heels.
“So, is that where we’re going next?”
Turning on my heel, I glared at Preston, who stood grinning like he was having a great time. “We’re not going anywhere.”
I sputtered at the question. “Because. This is official federal agency business, and you’re a civilian. That’s why.”
He scoffed. “I’m a private investigator who’s…investigating. I came here looking for information on Rapture, which, I’m pretty sure, is why you came here. Now we get to take a field trip.”
I sighed in frustration. He wasn’t getting it. “There is no ‘we’. I keep telling you this, but you’re not listening.”
He stepped right into my personal space, his chest nearly brushing mine. Instant heat spread through me. My breath caught as he reached up and cupped my cheek. Hazel eyes bore into mine. “You can lie to yourself all you want, but there is most definitely a we, Landon.”
