DEA Agent Cord Granger knows evidence doesn't lie. And he knows the serial killer in custody - his biological father - is the Moonlight Strangler. With news of a similar attack, Cord takes the victim, rancher Karina Southerland, into his protective custody.
Marred by the Strangler's hallmark slash across her cheek, Karina is sure Cord's father is innocent. The real killer is still out there - and he's coming to finish what he started. At least they can agree that their smoldering attraction is real. Now, if there's any hope for a future, Cord must solve this murderous puzzle. Before the Moonlight Strangler strikes again.
Former homicide detective Clint Hayes has his first client as a private investigator: a fragile beauty he isn't sure he can trust. An injury has left Natalie Drummond with gaps in her memory, and she sees and hears things that aren't there. But she's sure she shot an intruder in her Birmimgham mansion. So where's the body, the gun, the evidence? When it's clear someone is trying to kill his vulnerable client, Clint appoints himself her protector, working overtime not to fall for her. But someone is dead set that Natalie never regains her memories-or makes new ones with Clint.
