Mark Houston has
done the unthinkable. The United States Marine has fallen in love with his best
friend’s fiancée. Now he has to tell Libby Clifton that Jon was killed in
action. When Mark accompanies his friend’s body home, he discovers all was not well between Libby and Jon. He
dares to hope there might still be room in her heart for him—until she confides
in him that he’s the only friend she has—the very last thing a man wants to
hear. Or be.
She’s trying to
move on. After the very public funeral of her war hero fiancée, Libby trades
the sedate country life for nursing school in big city Chicago. Little does she
realize that kilos of opium lay six-feet underground with the man she’s just
buried. The cold-blooded cartel boss wants his drugs back. Mark Houston is determined to protect Libby. Three paths are on a
collision course of murder, deceit, and betrayal.
