Trust was not something Rosalyn gave lightly. Her emotions had been abused so many times in the past that she had long ago bottled them up. She vowed that she would never again open herself up completely. It was safer that way. Yet she suddenly found herself in a situation that demanded much more from her. In her mind, she willed herself to build yet another wall around her feelings. She wanted to protect herself. Yet, in the dark of the night, she could feel her walls crumbling. What was the more dangerous course: her mission tracking a murderer, or placing her trust in Thorne? Thorne was taking a leap of faith. He barely knew Rosalyn and yet he was willing to following her into a life of intrigue and mystery. What was it that drew him to this woman? Could he really turn his back on his former life? It would not take him long to find the answer to that question. Join Rosalyn and Thorne as they discover who is at the core of a web of international intrigue, and as they discover each other.
