In St. Tammany Parish, Louisiana, Police detective Ryker Delancey concludes a serial killer is operating in the area.  However, he has failed to sell his theory to his boss Mike Davis though four women have died in the last five years starting with Autumn Moser.  Instead, for the past year, on his free time he serendipitously guards the only person to survive this psychopath though not authorized to do so.

As the anniversary of her escape draws near, Ryker doubles his surveillance of chef Nicole Beckham because he fears the predator will make a statement on that day.  He is attracted to her and her to him, but Nicole remains angry that she is the prisoner instead of the person who wanted to kill her.  However, when another female victim surfaces, Nicole realizes her only hope to survive resides with the dedicated cop who watches over her like a guardian angel.

This is an exciting unauthorized regional police procedural starring two likable lead characters and a strong support cast especially the victims’ loved ones, the cops, his family and those at the restaurant.  Fast-paced though a straight forward romantic intrigue, fans will the first Delancey Dynasty thriller as Ryker and Nicolle fall in love while he tries to keep her safe with his twin (next story) having his back.
