He’s surprised to find Ben, the man who makes him want things he shouldn’t, right there beside him, risking everything to help him and finally coaxing Ethan’s feelings back to life. A desperate race to find his missing nieces will lead Ethan to a place he never thought he’d be and Ben exactly where he wanted to be—in a life filled with love and desire. But how long can they keep it when evil stalks their every step?
