I thought the days of fathers selling their daughters were over.
Apparently, I thought wrong,
because, in a few short months,
I'm supposed to marry Johnny Maldonado.
His record is squeaky clean,
but anyone who's been to Boston knows who he really is
and what he controls.
There's only one problem:
I'm not interested in Jonny.
I'm interested in the man charged with his protection.
Maxon Holt. His bodyguard.
When I ran away, he was the one to find me.
He's not friendly and we don't get along.
But, I find myself drawn to him.
Max is cold, dark, and distant
and he's harboring a secret.
One that could get us both killed.
