The clock is ticking...Every minute means another woman may die. The Cowtown Killer is free from prison and stalking the very woman who helped put him away-FBI Special Agent Lea Cordasic. She's determined to see this grisly murderer who held her captive locked away forever. She just doesn't know if she can do it on her own.Texas cop Marc Kenyon had been there before...he'd seen Lea brutalized and left for dead. He'd fallen for the feisty beauty instantly, and loves her still. Now that the madman is back for her, he'll do anything to thaw her heart...and keep her safe.
