The nightmare is far from over. Alvin Jones, Chloe's husband from hell, is hot on their trail. Her nose is picking up on his scent. Her skin feels the heat of his rage. Her tongue tastes death - hers and Owen's. Owen Firmin has rescued her from her worst nightmare, but will they be able to cross a dangerous island filled with traps and other hazards in order to reach Owen's yacht, and their only real chance of escape? Chloe has learned the hard way that life is full of surprises.
Chloe thought her life was a fairy tale about to happen. Until her worst nightmare walked back into her life, shattering her dreams. Now he's holding her captive on a private yacht, intent on punishing her for mistakes she made in the past. His revenge involves torture and humiliation, and he will not stop until there's nothing left of her. He loves her. He loathes her. He's an angel. He's a monster...the devil in disguise. He's her savior. He's her deadliest enemy.

But one month before her wedding, she receives a countdown card. No sender. No return address. No message. Only a piece of lace stained with blood. As the wedding gets closer, the cards keep coming. Every day, without fail. It seems, while she's counting down to the happiest day of her life, someone is doing a countdown of their own.
