Her life is in his hands...and his heart is in hers.
Small-town waitress Piper Starr is shocked to suddenly inherit millions from her aunt, who's been missing for eight years. But her life takes a dark turn when regular diner customer Jonah Dawson shows up at her door with his boss, loan shark Eddie Verona -- who's demanding his share of the money to settle a debt she never knew her aunt held.
An enforcer for Covendale's nastiest, Jonah has one rule he won't break: Never hurt a woman. So when his boss orders him to make a violent example out of Piper, he does the unthinkable -- and abducts her to keep her safe. Now Eddie wants them both dead, and Jonah races to bring the loan shark down for good... while dealing with the explosive attraction unfolding between him and his reluctant charge.
