Locked In Ice
The world called him a monster, so he became one…
Guilty. Innocent? Definitely dangerous. The media chases Lane Lawson wherever he goes. Once upon a time, he’d been locked away because the Feds believed he was a serial killer. Every single day that he’d been in that hell, he’d had to fight for survival. Now he’s out, free, seemingly clear, but suspicion still dodges his steps, and he’ll never be the man he was before a nightmare ended the life he knew.
It’s his turn to be the predator.
So he hunts. Adrenaline and rage fuel him, and he hunts the killers who think they’ve gotten away with their crimes. He paid for someone else’s sins before, and he’s determined that the guilty will be the ones to suffer. He’s joined up with the Ice Breakers, a team of cold case solvers—a team that helped get him out of his hell—and he will not stop until the scales of justice have been balanced.
And in this new life, he has an unlikely new partner.
PI Ophelia Raine is Lane’s opposite in every way. Fiery when he’s ice cold. Smiling when he’s ready to rip the world apart. She’s supposed to balance him, to help train him as an Ice Breaker…and, most importantly, he knows that Ophelia is supposed to keep him in check. Don’t let him go off the deep end. An order he’d heard her receive.
But the problem is that the more he’s around the gorgeous and tenacious Ophelia, the more Lane’s control begins to fracture. Because it has been far too long since he’s taken something—someone—for himself. And he very, very much wants Ophelia. A dark and desperate desire that begins to consume him.
Ophelia has her own darkness hidden inside.
The more he’s around her, the more Lane realizes that Ophelia’s bright and beautiful veneer is just a facade. She’s hiding secrets. Secrets that she’s keeping from him and all of the Ice Breakers. And when Ophelia’s bloody and violent past comes back to haunt her…
She will need a monster to keep her safe.
Author’s Note: Cold case solvers need to get ready—Ophelia’s past isn’t dead and buried the way she’d desperately hoped. Instead, it’s alive and well…and coming after her. She’ll need the help of a very unlikely protector—a man who claims to be no one’s hero—in order to survive the evil heading her way. But heroes are overrated, and sometimes it’s the “monsters” who are the only ones who can get the job done. Prepare for some huge blurs between truth and lies, ice-meltingly hot scenes, and a love that might just be worth killing for…
