She was the one who had always done the protecting…
Melody Beck has spent her life taking care of others—especially her younger sisters. She fails when her sister Brynna is attacked by a band of killers. All signs point to the richest man in Texas, billionaire Handley Barratt, as being the mastermind behind the attack.
Going after Handley Barratt is going to be the hardest thing this former TSP detective has ever done. In more ways than one. Going after Handley Barratt means dealing with his son—the one man she is still trying so hard to forget.
The world is claiming his father is a killer…
Houghton Barratt knows the media outlets are lying. His father is an good man and he'd raised Houghton to be the same. The only way Houghton can fix this is to go after the woman accusing his father—even if his own plan isn’t exactly honorable. Instead of Brynna Beck he finds her older sister Melody.
Melody—the very woman Houghton has been trying to forget for the last eighteen months. He needs her help and he isn’t leaving without Melody—whether she wants to go with him or not.
But as Houghton schemes and manipulates to get Melody back in his arms where she belongs, the real mastermind responsible for the Marshall murders is getting closer. Only this time he's focusing on Melody and the sisters she'd do anything to protect.
Now she has no choice but to work with the man she has never forgotten--the one man who changed her entire world in an instant.
