Colin Munro believes working for the International Protective Network will be the perfect occupation for him: He'll be in charge on assignments and if he fails he'll have no one to blame but himself. Unfortunately, his trial assignment is protecting a woman who has no intention of blindly following orders. But he refuses to allow her to ruin his chance of securing his dream job.
Traumatized by her stint as a soldier, Joanna Grainger wants nothing more than to enjoy life. That's supposed to begin with New Year's Eve events in Edinburgh, but when she witnesses a crime no one believes occurred, her plans come to a screeching halt. To make matters worse, her intense and driven bodyguard has no compassion for her or the victim.
As the danger hunts them through the city during one of the busiest time of the year, Joanna knows she must convince Colin she's a worthy partner. But first, can she convince herself?
