Crime writer Skye Chamberlain always knows how to get the best story, but when digging for information on the Gonzaga Familia, she gets a bit more than she bargained for. Now a witness to a triple homicide, Skye is stuck in protective custody until she can testify in court. Things aren’t all bad, however. For one thing, Skye’s got sexy Texas Ranger Rex Martinez guarding her. If only Rex wouldn’t be such a stickler for rules – namely, the one preventing him from acting on the mutual desire between them – then Skye would be perfectly content. With nowhere to run and mounting sexual tension, it won’t be long before Skye can convince Rex to lower his guard. But pleasure comes with the price – and that price just might be Skye’s life.
