More than anything Taylor Drake wants her life back. She’s returned to her family home, suffering from the agoraphobia that has plagued her since she was brutally attacked in her apartment. Once a confident and successful photographer, she now cowers behind closed doors with a loaded pistol. She fears her attacker will find her and finish the job.
The last assignment chief deputy Adam Gillespie wants is babysitting the spoiled celebrity Taylor. He blames her father for his family's financial ruin; her brother is the incumbent candidate for county sheriff, Adam's opposition in the upcoming election.
Complications arise when someone murders the man he arrests for stalking Taylor. Adam soon learns things aren't as they seem. Taylor is hardly a pampered prima donna, and there are holes in the history of the feud between their families. He has to reconcile the feud or any future with Taylor--with whom he's fallen in love--is ruined. But first he must stop the person determined to kill her.
