"Motivated by honor. After Kate's gruesome discovery, the men in her life unite to protect her from the imminent danger, but Jaxon becomes consumed by the fierce desire to possess her fully. Kate trusts him enough to surrender to him in the bedroom, but she still fears the vulnerability of complete and utter submission. Enslaved by pleasure. Jaxon continues to push her sexual and emotional boundaries, penetrating her defenses and crumbling the walls she has built around the painful memories of her past. But just as Kate opens her heart and accepts a future with Jaxon, the devastating truth about Alyssa's death shatters the tenuous bond they share, testing their relationship and propelling her directly into the path of a desperate murderer."--Page 4 of cover.
