Is it possible to outrun fate?
The night two intruders dressed in black break into Gypsy’s store, a mysterious, sexy man comes to her rescue. Calvin has one objective—to keep both a secret organization and an alien clan from finding and taking Gypsy. But after they meet, his duty is overridden by his desire.
Together, Gypsy and Calvin travel halfway across the country, trying to stay one step ahead of their pursuers and dodging danger at every step. When they give in to their mutual attraction, neither realizes that it’s the one thing guaranteed to reveal their location to their biggest threat.
In the small Outback town of Backwater, human and alien greed will collide. Can their passion for each other be strong enough to survive the ordeal? Or will Gypsy’s destiny lead to an alien plan that could destroy everything?
Her mind raced, trying to figure out who would hear her and what they would do if they did. And who had a hold of her—a rapist, a murderer, a thief? None of the options were comforting. Should she even listen to his advice? For all she knew, he could be the one who’d been making a racket down here.
Another crash sounded from the corridor leading out into the store. What were they looking for? Were a bunch of kids looking for cash, or were they just here to trash the place? She’d left the money in the till, so Gypsy didn’t understand why the culprits hadn’t gone straight there and be done with it.
“Do you have a backdoor?” the man holding her whispered.
Her skin broke out in goosebumps. The intimacy he’d forced her into didn’t scare her as much as whatever was happening on the other side of the wall. One of his hands still covered her mouth, the other wrapped tightly in front of her chest. She should’ve been scared of him, but she wasn’t. She was beyond fear, feeling numb.
