Falling in love with a rebel was not my plan.
I am a lawyer. I love order, justice, and the little, annoying habits that I never stray from.
Until the night he saves me.
Marcus King is a rebel by day and an unleashed lover by night. He watches me with that delicious glint in his eyes like he is an intimate connoisseur of all my cravings; like he is the one to satisfy them.
He is not the man I want, but giving in to him is so tempting.
And once I do, he sets me on fire, one kiss at a time.
Then it all comes crashing down.
The killer I had been hunting for is on the loose, and I am his target.
Rule #1: Don't date lawyers.
Rule #2: Don't get attached.
Rule #3: Don't act as a savior.
Those were my bylaws, and they were easy to follow because I didn't do romance, or worse, let myself believe that I could love.
Until the night she waltzes into my life.
Charlotte Burton is the bane of my existence and the virus that contaminates my blood from the very first second I lay eyes on her.
She makes the rules I love to break, but in the end, she is the one to break my rules.
She gets in my veins, in my lungs, in every broken piece of my heart.
But that doesn't mean that I can keep her. Not until she stops flirting with danger. Not until the killer targeting her is put down.
To protect her, I must break my last rule, but will that be enough to save her?
I raced through life like a bullet, so I never imagined I would slow down enough to see her, let alone that I would fall for her so hard that I was willing to kill to keep her safe.
Charlotte Burton has become mandatory to my heart and to my sanity. They tried to snatch her from me, but they never predicted my rage.
Now I'm on a rampage, and I have a single goal: To put our enemies in the ground.
In their whispers, I hunt for secrets, and in the air they breathe, I taste weakness. I'm one step away from destroying them.
Then Charlotte turns my life upside down, and we are once again flirting with danger.
Losing more than what I had already lost seemed a distant concept.
Until I realize that I risk losing the man I love.
Following Marcus is a demand coursing through my blood. I belong with him, even if in the world of criminals, love is a disease that must be eradicated.
So we disguise our love, but infiltrating one criminal organization isn't enough. To protect our covers, we slide down a dark and treacherous path, one lie at a time.
And just when we were about to defeat them all, we're losing once again.
