With one of Texas’s most heinous serial killers still on the loose, it’s Colby agent Joel Hayden’s sworn duty to protect single mom Laney Seagers. Getting a job at Laney’s High Noon bar is easy for Joel…but gaining the trust of the fiercely independent beauty is considerably harder.
Amid escalating danger, Joel struggles to safeguard the shattering family secret that could destroy all Laney has ever known. As he witnesses her world starting to unravel, how can he protect her without revealing what he knows? A lifelong bachelor, Joel learns a new lesson on the job: protecting Laney from violence may be easier than protecting her heart.
