Years ago, Eva Jones narrowly escaped a killer’s clutches. Left with thirteen scars and a secret to protect, she now lives a quiet life as an addictions counselor, doing her best to avoid notice. When his missing persons case poses a possible connection to Eva’s captor, private investigator Asher “Ashe” Lincoln initially views Eva only as the key to saving a life. As their connection deepens and the killer stalks closer to reclaim the prey he lost, Ashe is unwilling to continue the risk. Unfortunately, that decision is no longer his. Ashe must convince Eva she’s a survivor — not a victim — and more to him than bait or a means to an end. But will Eva find the courage to connect with Ashe and help catch the killer before her scars become deadly?
