"It's party time." That's the "invitation" shoved under her door. It's got Brittany Grayson fearing for her life...and her sanity. She's sure the monster who once held her captive for months is dead, so why his chilling words in the note? His menacing face in the window? And why won't anyone—even her lawmen brothers—believe that somehow he's after her again? Brittany just wants a normal, independent life in Black Rock. Romance is out of the question...although she's okay as friends-with-benefits with Alex Crawford, her hunky, marriage-phobic contractor. Alex, a single dad, has his own good reasons not to fall for Brittany. But none of them matter when the race is on to find the killer who's kidnapped her!
