Dominique Rue's partners blood stained her hands. For ten years they worked together and she refused to admit the true feelings she had for him. Now he was dead. Her life in a shambles and tormented by dreams of his death, she has walked away from it all, her past life, the force, her family. What she didn't bargain for when she moved to St. Agnes, a small town in Eastern Shore, Virginia was Jericho Wolfe, the handsomely nosey next door neighbor. He is enthralled with her and will stop at nothing to find out her secrets and what she is running from. Will his persuasive mind break down the wall she has built around her or add more mortar to the nightmares that plague her sleep?
