Wallis Gardner’s men, blond Austin Cooper and grizzly bear Michael Gallo, Bureau of Criminal Investigation specialists, arrive home, where Wallis has been recuperating from gunshot wounds. When another emergency calls the men out, Wallis is left alone with her strange tenant—and her only focus becomes staying alive for as long as possible. More
Pissed off, crabby, and contemplating getting a guard dog, Wallis Gardner is goddamned tired of being laid up with a gunshot wound while her men—blond, blue-eyed Austin Cooper and dark-haired, grizzly bear Michael Gallo—finish the job they’d all been working on with the Bureau of Criminal Investigations.
An anonymous tip sends her partners on a futile chase, leaving Wallis to deal with the massive cast on her leg and the creepy new tenant in the small cottage at the edge of her property. When Austin and Michael return, the welcome home party leaves them all exhausted but satisfied before a call comes in with yet another missing girl.
Unprotected, Wallis finds herself dancing at the end of a killer’s blade. But with life and love on the line, this is one dance she intends to lead.
