Lilly Dusalte betrays criminal McKay to the FBI. His revenge—swift and brutal—leaves her broken and dying in a frozen parking lot.
An ancient pagan goddess magically saves Lilly's life, but that aid won't be free.
McKay knows she's still alive. He will come for her.
Pax Harrow, the Sheriff of small town Garnet is furious. He fears collateral damage from McKay if he finds Lilly there.
Unfortunately, an unwelcome attraction to Lily stirs far deeper feelings, and brings out the animal in Pax.
The goddess has a plan. It requires collecting payment for saving Lilly's life, even if that payment places her in peril again.
The only aid Lilly receives from her peculiar patroness is a weird magical knife.
Pax is there for Lilly, and he has special powers of his own. Will Lilly and Pax be strong enough together to defeat deadly McKay and survive the goddess's dangerous scheme?

Lilly's life has never been easy - her mother abused her as a child, she fell in with a sociopathic crime lord, and when she tries to turn it around - she winds up in prison despite turning state's evidence to the FBI. Lilly is now on probation, being sent to live with her aunt in the small town of Garnet where no one is who they seem to be. Lilly is part of a tribe she never know existed; one that serves an ancient goddess; one that has a plan for her and the mystical knife that never seems to stray far from her hand. Now if only anyone would explain what's going on, Lilly might just make it out alive. Another stellar book by Lee Roland. Lilly is the best type of heroine - she is flawed, has a storied past and is trying to do better in a bad situation. Pax is just the right foil for her - though I guessed his secret quite a while before he got around to confessing. I look forward to the next title in this series.
