Celeste Pavenic was once a government profiler under scrutiny for the death of the son of the President. Then a car bomb went off killing her grandmother and supposedly Celeste. Celeste has been on the run since then, hiding and trying to find out the identity of person wanting her dead. Unfortunately, she had to leave someone behind grieving for her, her fiancé Cain MacAlister.

Cain MacAlister, black-ops specialist, discovers his fiancé, Celeste is still alive after his boss is murdered. Cain finds Celeste living under an alias as she attempts to flush out the assassin. Even though Cain is angry with her for allowing him to believe she was dead, the two of them work together find out who the killer is. Afterwards, when the danger is over, Cain plans to walk away from Celeste. Of course, he is unable to deny that there is still a strong attraction there for her.

Cain and Celeste fight their feelings for each until they finally succumb to their desires. As they race to discover the identity of the assassin, Celeste continues to be in peril. When Celeste learns that Cain is not being completely honest with her, she feels hurt and betrayed. Trust issues come to the forefront in their relationship. In the end, Cain must convince Celeste to believe in him or there is no hope for them to be together.

This story is full of action-packed adventure and suspense. I had a hard time putting this book down before I had completed the story. Ms. Young did a fantastic job tying up all the loose ends and she gave us some wonderful secondary characters too. I hope she writes more stories about the other characters in this book. I look forward to reading more about them.
