Trust, love . . . and lies.
After barely surviving enemy torture, Captain Chuck Tanaka doesn't trust himself to do more than ride a desk-but new orders leave him no choice. Assigned to the investigation of a mob boss whose luxury cruise ship is reportedly a hub for terrorist activity, Tanka goes undercover. His target: Jolynn Taylor, the mob boss's daughter
As a child, Jolynn saw her beloved uncle murdered. Since then, she's stayed far away from her father's crooked empire. But when he falls ill, she returns, hoping to men the gap between them. Instead, she finds herself on the run, one step ahead of unknown enemies. The only thing keeping her alive is the man she knows as Charles Tomas, the only man she's ever been able to trust.
Unfortunately, he's also the man determined to destroy her family . . .
