He hadn’t protected them.
When Homicide Special Investigator Jack Roe’s daughter is killed in an auto accident and his wife dies from a drug overdose, he abandons a promising career as a Military Police Officer. If only he’d been there when they needed him, he could have saved them both.

He didn’t protect her.
Six years later, Jack is in Biloxi, Mississippi to be close to his sister and her daughter, Lisa. As long as he’s around, nothing can happen to them. But then he’s called to the hospital in the middle of the night and learns that Lisa has been abused by her mother’s boyfriend. Jack must confront old wounds that never healed, and a burning anger that’s been buried for far too long.

She can’t protect him.
The same night, a woman’s body turns up on the beach. A few days later, so does another one. Jack must deal with his past and his present while he and his partner, Kate Giveans, race to find a killer before another woman dies. But Kate harbors a secret that just might get Jack killed.

They can’t connect.

When Jack Roe is promoted to Chief of the Biloxi Police Department, his partner and fiancé Kate Giveans is left behind to take on a new partner. Caleb Castille, an Abercrombie & Fitch model look-alike with a gun, is more than willing to pay attention to Kate while Jack’s focused on other things.

And the race is on.
Kate and her new partner have little to go on when they begin investigating a murder at a local logistics company. Worse, their suspects keep turning up dead. When the killer’s sights land on Kate, the two detectives must rush to find the murderer before Kate becomes the next victim.

But who to trust?
While Kate’s trying to stay alive, she and Jack grow further apart. His secrets drive a wedge between them. Frustrated with Jack, Kate finds herself drawn more and more to her new partner. But is Caleb who he seems to be? And can Kate figure out who to trust before she ends up on a cold, steel morgue table?

Her future is uncertain.

Kate Giveans left Biloxi, Mississippi with a broken heart and no clear plans for her future. She’s been hanging out in Kentucky with her best friend, Paige Coffee, trying to figure out her next move. Until Lisa – her ex-fiance’s niece – calls asking for help and Kate rushes back to Biloxi.

Her heart is broken.

Her first encounter with her department chief and ex-fiance, Jack Roe, doesn’t go well. Kate’s still wrestling with her feelings for him and she’s not sure she wants to return to her job with the Biloxi PD when her leave is over. She shouldn’t be snooping around the fire that killed Lisa’s best friend, but threatening messages Lisa receives and another arson – then another – convince Kate she needs to find this murderer.

The inferno has just begun.

When Ryan Jackson – the partner she thought was dead until a few weeks ago – shows up, Kate has to deal with her smoldering emotions over his lies and betrayal and her feelings from the past. Is Ryan connected to these fires? Did his time undercover change the man she knew? And can Kate get past her own feelings for him and for Jack to learn the truth before everything goes up in smoke?
