A coward dies a thousand times......
Kerry Simpson, aka so many different names she can't keep them straight, lives this adage. Ever since she heard her fiancé order the death of her hitman father and turned state's witness, her life has been spiraling out of control. Kerry is desperately seeking the courage to face her biggest fear, but time is running out. Will she find the strength to break free or remain enslaved forever?
Death is more acceptable than failure......
U.S. Marshal Cutter Snead's biggest failure caused the death of the only people he loved. Now, burned out, he has one final job before he can start anew--even if it is without his wife and unborn child. He wishes his last assignment would be anything but babysitting a mob daughter who looks like a kindergarten teacher and acts like a tiger mouse. Kerry Simpson should stand for everything Cutter hates, but each minute he spends with her, she opens emotions he thought had died years ago.
Time stops for no one......
Can Cutter and Kerry beat the ticking clock, an evil criminal, and a dangerous mole to discover the truth that will set them free to find the love and life they both deserve?
His accusing tone had said it all. Even though she had testified for the government, against her father and her fiancé, she was the one who always felt guilty. She was the one who felt unclean. It didn’t matter which kind of federal agent he was. In her experience, they all treated her like she was dirt.
She put aside that fleeting pain. She had bigger problems facing her now than being treated badly by a government employee.
For the third time in less than a year, her new identity had been blown.
She was weary of being tired.
She was tired of being terrified.
She was terrified of being alone.
