Former Fish & Wildlife Officer Charlotte "Charlee" Tanner still carries the guilt of a drowning accident that occurred on her watch. She hoped moving back home to central Florida would provide a safe haven-until she learns the death was no accident, and she's the intended target. Lieutenant Hunter Boudreau loves his new job as a law enforcement officer with the Florida Fish & Wildlife Conservation Commission. Charlee is his best friend, so when she comes under fire, he's not letting her out of his sight until the killer is caught. But Charlee won't sit by and let anyone else die for her. As danger closes in and Charlee and Hunter's attraction threatens to consume them, Charlee has to decide if she can trust Hunter. And to save Charlee, Hunter will have to trust her, too.
