Armed with a new identity, Reid Patterson plans to join the FBI hoping to right the wrongs of The Order, a sinister faction controlled by his murderous, biological family. But Reid’s plans go awry when a young girl pleads for his help, bringing fresh threats, a beautiful woman, and a thrill-seeking boy. The countdown begins ticking toward a fiery contest of will and passion.
Foster care psychologist Holly Babson, dreams of a life where her escaped convict father and the memories of her sister’s horrific death are both locked away. While helping a runaway teen, death returns to her doorstep, revealing the teen’s connection to The Order. Holly’s life pivots as her past, her fears, and her heart are locked in vicious turmoil.
Denied a place in The Order, wealthy businessman Ivan Sinclair will stop at nothing to reclaim the top seat in his family’s insidious organization. A deadly game is his vehicle to amass even more power.
Reid and Holly’s worlds collide with the diabolical force of The Order, and Ivan’s cold-blooded plot. Together, they must fight for their lives while learning to trust their hearts.
Reid rubbed his eyes and wandered into the kitchen. He assembled milk and chocolate mix to make hot cocoa as he stared out into the dark. The snow fell in heavy cascades of white and he concluded he would be digging out from at least a foot by morning. He shivered and jogged over to the new thermostat, punching up the temperature. Although he rented the old house, the elderly gentlemen owner allowed him to make a few modifications. A new heater and air conditioner had been a must, and Reid especially appreciated the upgrades on cold mornings and blistering afternoons.
As he made his way back to the kitchen, a knock sounded on the front door. He glanced at his watch. Ten in the evening. Who could this be? Angling his head, he squinted through the peephole. He didn’t recognize the person at the door. He sighed and took another peek. Red coat with a large hood. What are the chances Little Red Riding Hood stood outside his door? Reid stiffened and pulled open the door. “Can I help you?”
A hand covered in a black glove emblazoned with skulls and crossbones pushed back the hood. Not quite the vision he had in mind of an innocent young girl on her way to grandmother’s house.
The hood crumbled down, revealing a young girl about sixteen. With intense blue eyes she stared at him.
Wind whipped snow slapped Reid’s face but he gaze remained on the girl. Something about her scratched his mind.
The girl blinked several times and pulled at her quivering lip. “You tried to kill my mother.”

Sometimes fear is all that keeps you alive.
A senior account, ballet dancer, and future bride, Marissa Nash likes order, and she expects all the pieces of her life to add up. Her bottom line is skewed after she discovers her fiancé has been unfaithful. When Marissa walks in to the unexpected—David dead and her dog, Halo, agitated and restless, she finds her nightmare is only beginning.
David’s unenthused best man and traumatized former Army doctor, Justin Tanner understands that a wedding means more than a toast and a kiss. His reluctance stems from feelings that run deeper than they should for the bride. But when he finds Marissa cradling his best friend’s lifeless body, can he find a way to suppress his feelings as they uncover David’s secret world?
The seemingly pointless murder launches Marissa and Justin into a wicked web of lies, delusion and danger at the hands of a powerful and psychotic foe.
Murder, passion, evil—who will survive?
