Haunted by a traumatic childhood, Dallas PD Homicide Detective Camila Martinez channels all her time and energy into helping those no longer able to help themselves; finding justice for victims of the most heinous crimes. Driven to speak for the dead, Camila walled off her heart – the heart creates distractions, and distractions lead to mistakes. Camila Martinez doesn’t make mistakes.
A quintessential ladies man, Dallas Firefighter James Hurley lives in the moment, moving from the heat of a fire to the heat of a woman without a moment’s pause. At least he did, until an icy, no-nonsense detective invaded his devil-may-care world and began haunting his dreams as the one he couldn’t charm. Coincidence crossed their paths again, but official police business kept her standing her ground, and as a material witness in one of her investigations, Hurley was proving inept at melting her icy facade.
As the bodies stack up, tensions build, and soon Camila is forced to bury the pain of her past and put her trust in the one man capable of shattering every wall she’s ever built around her heart – James Hurley.
There’s a killer to be found, victims to avenge, and as Detective and Firefighter race against an unknown clock, everyone around them is at risk – for even the smallest distraction could lead the killer right to their doorstep.
