Between working three jobs, worrying about her family back home, and running from her past, the only thing that would further complicate Bethany Amaya's life is a romance. But after a second run-in with the intense and sexy detective Damian Santiago, that's exactly what she gets. In the blink of an eye she's caught up in a passionate affair with one of the most irresistible men she's ever met. Awestruck for a second time by this beautiful, intriguing woman, Damian is both surprised and delighted when Bethany agrees to something he didn't even expect to be asking for so soon-exclusivity. As things heat up, Damian's skills of detecting and reading body language begin to raise his suspicions-Bethany is keeping something from him. Try as he might to pretend it isn't true, the signs become impossible to ignore. Some things are better left unsaid. At least that's what Bethany keeps telling herself. She never imagined falling in love so quickly and she refuses to get Damian caught up in her troubles. She knows what he suspects-sees it in those possessive eyes. Time is of the essence, because Damian's suspicions are mounting. With everything suddenly working against her, the race is on to fix things before the truth is revealed and Damian finds out it's much worse than he imagines.
