An FBI agent takes the biggest - and most dangerous - risk of his career: leaving bachelorhood behind.
Crime investigator Thadius "Thad" Winston must protect his high-ranking political mother after she is shot and nearly killed. He is prepared for risks. What he isn't prepared for is Lucy Sinclair. Hired as his mother's nurse, Lucy is capable, compassionate, and entirely inconvenient for Thad. He doesn't envision a life of shared love or commitment, yet he can't deny the intense attraction growing between them. And when a stalker sets his sights on Lucy - possibly the same man who tried to kill his mother - Thad realizes just how much he has to lose.
