When architect Holly Fairfield lands a dream job renovating a posh San Francisco restaurant, she discovers nothing has happened by chance. Soon she's caught in a dangerous game between Cutty family rivals -- and a dark legacy of obsession with murder.
Enigmatic and sensual Ryan Cutty warns her to get out while she can. He taunts her with the portrait of a woman called Nina, a woman he planned to marry . . . A woman whose past Holly can't ignore. Suddenly Holly realizes that her presence here may be part of a sinister plan to exact vengeance for Nina's murder.
As Holly is drawn deeper into Ryan's world and his intoxicating embrace, she can only wonder if his passion is a desperate attempt to save her from Nina's fate . . . Or protect the family he loves from the secrets Holly is determined to uncover. She is dangerously close to unlocking the truth -- but is it worth her life?
