Called in to work with a patient, therapist Theresa Vaughan didn’t anticipate being held hostage by a killer in a snowbound lake cottage…or rescued by her former fiancé. But now bodyguard Alex Dean is the only thing standing between Theresa and certain death, and her patient—who was supposed to be under Alex’s sister’s protection—has disappeared. Alex can’t fail on this mission, or in the eyes of the woman he once loved, so he has to convince her to trust him. With his sister’s client missing, a blizzard raging and a killer closing in, he must make a choice. Will he look to the future and focus on locating the missing charge…or remember the past and save Theresa?
