Trusting the wrong person had gotten his father killed. CIA agent Ed Carter isn't about to repeat the mistake. Pulling a gun on nurse Bailey Williams may not have been the smartest idea, but the beautiful caretaker is Ed's only suspect in the murder. Problem is, her vulnerable brown eyes claim innocence and set off his protective instincts. The spark between them is undeniable, but Bailey could never trust her life—or her heart—to a man who thinks her guilty. But when the real killer returns and threatens not just her but her family, Bailey must place her faith in the only man who can keep them from being silenced forever…
The tension was strong throughout this book because both of the main characters have secrets that they can't tell the other, so it's basically a tug-of-war over who's going to be honest first. Throw in super spies, a creepy house, and a murder and you're in for a wild ride!
I loved the setting and fell in love with the island of Smuggler's Cove.
4 stars for a high-intensity, thrill ride.
(I received a copy of this book from the author in exchange for an honest review, which I have given.)
