Julia Wainwright is the proud owner of the Book Merchant store and the daughter of an overbearing, powerful and rich father, Reverend Benjamin Wainwright. Julia writes literary erotica, but she uses a pseudonym to avoid causing any potential scandal to her father. But someone has still managed to make the connection and wants her to pay for her sins. Julia has angered someone with her books, angered them enough that they send her threatening letters, install hidden cameras, leave bloody surprises, and make terrifying phone calls.

John Merrick is an ex-cop following the fatal shooting of a fellow officer. John just canít let it go of the guilt from the incident that made a young woman a widow and left two children fatherless. Although, the police department declared it friendly fire, John quits the department in Chicago and moves to his hometown, New Orleans, to start a new life. Benjamin hires John to protect Julia.

What ensues is a medley of brutality, terror, and heart-pumping action. Just how far does this sicko plan to take his twisted desire to harm Julia? The police have run a search on everyone who comes into contact with Julia save her customers, but they have no solid leads. This stalker is striking closer and closer to the object of his obsession. Juliaís bookworm lifestyle and her independence will have to be altered to allow protective measures to be put in place. As the threats escalate, John and Julia will have to learn to trust one another.

Castilloís characters are as real as your best friends. In this, her sixth book, she at the top of her game, carrying readers on a passionate (hot Hot HOT ), dark, action-packed ride into the mind of a psycho.
