What began as a simple mission to gain revenge for his younger brother’s death has become an abyss of conflicted loyalties and evil deeds done for the “greater good.” He’s begun to question his ability to see a future beyond the darkness. But when his plan to take down El Jefe, the mysterious leader of a human trafficking ring, leads him to the woman he’s loved from the shadows for years, he needs to decide where his ultimate loyalty lies.
Nora Damon has poured blood, sweat, and tears into establishing herself as a capable adult, no longer fettered by the childhood trauma that haunts her.

But one night, when a traumatized girl leads her back to Diego, Nora must face her fears, her painful past, and the bad boy she cannot have.
