After two years of working as a prostitute trying to make ends meet, I'm finally getting my life back on track. Until my boyfriend tells me he secretly joined a group of revolutionaries planning to assassinate Tyler Trepoz, the man who used his wealth and influence to buy Scar City and has been reigning over it like a tyrant. It's happening tonight, and he needs my help.
I beg him not to go, tell him it won't work. He'll get caught, leaving me all alone in the world. Let's just say I'm intimately familiar with Tyler Trepoz's dangerous Head of Security and know exactly how well-protected he is. I take no pleasure in being right.
Overnight, I've become a valuable pawn to the enemy, and my best hope for survival is using the only real skill I have to convince Tyler to save me from his own torment. Being the plaything of the richest and most powerful man in the city is one thing, but I'm not prepared for my heart to find its counterpoint in the man who took everything from me. Navigating life with Tyler is a constant minefield, and unless we can both move beyond our dark pasts and learn to trust each other, everything we've worked so hard to build will be destroyed.
