I had it all, or so I thought. Until my husband betrayed me and my entire world came crashing down. I turned to alcohol and sex to numb my pain. But I’m sober now, and I’m working my way back up the country music charts.

But then the death threats began and I needed protection. When my new bodyguard walked in the room, I couldn’t believe my eyes: it was the one man from my long spiral down who I never forgot. The one who’d played my body like a finely tuned instrument.

Ash Devereaux.

Now we’re on the run from a madman, and all I want is to forget about everything. To pretend this isn’t my life. To lose myself in him.

So I let Ash take control. I let him own my pleasure and my pain.

I tried telling myself it was only sex, but I've done the unthinkable: I've fallen in love with a man who can never love me back. Because Ash has demons of his own—ones he never talks about and never will. I know I should walk away before it’s too late, but like the addict I am, I need him.

How do you give up the best thing you've ever had, even when you know it’s bad for you? How do you walk away from a man who makes you burn?
