What she thought was true…
Captain Layne Sullivan doesn’t have anything against her new boss, Chief Ross Taylor. It’s just that he’s an outsider. A Boston transplant hired to run their small-town police force on Massachusetts’s North Shore. He’s too rigid. Too uptight. Too by-the-book.
And he took the job that should have been hers.
Not that she’s bitter or anything. Or about to let her personal feelings get in the way of her doing her job. And she’s never, ever going to act on those feelings, the increasingly numerous ones that keep invoking heated fantasies of her and the very stoic, very sexy chief getting very, very personal.
Nope. Won’t happen. Ever. Her career’s too important to her to jeopardize it on a fling with her boss. No matter how tempted she may be to do just that.
But when the human remains discovered outside of town are determined to be that of her mother, Ross is the only one who can help her discover the truth about what really happened all those years ago. But turning to him means trusting him with her deepest fears and darkest truths—fears and truths Layne would much rather keep hidden.
As she and Ross uncover the secrets and lies of the past, the attraction between them ignites, forcing Layne to make the choice between risking her professional reputation and job.
Or losing her heart.
