Nick Thane had retired from taking on impossible missions for cold hard cash long ago. But when he is called upon for one last job, to deliver a ransom and rescue wealthy heiress Rose O'Dell, he knows he has no choice but to accept the dangerous task. Throwing a spanner into the works is the fact that he and Rose share a passionate, heated history, and he is the last person she wants riding to her rescue. Nick will have to face his past, not only the pain he caused Rose, but also personal demons he thought were long dead. For Nick this mission is unlike any other: This time it's personal.
