Sara Wright knows better than to fall for a cop.
For Sara, an elite police dog trainer for the federal government, attractive women in uniform are an occupational hazard. But she gave her heart to a coworker once before and the battle scars from that failed relationship are still fresh. She dodges every chance at romance with the officers she trains, focusing her energy on turning out the finest handler-canine teams in the country. But when annoyingly perky, unfairly sexy Isabel Marquez arrives at Homeland Security’s Northeast Regional Training facility brimming with excitement, and a surprising desire to succeed, Sara's good intentions start to falter. She can’t help being drawn to Isabel's enthusiasm, and, okay, her long dark hair and brilliant smile don’t hurt either. Keeping their contact limited to friendship is harder than she thought. When it comes to enforcing her own rules of the heart, Sara might need to break a few for a chance at forever.
When Dr. Chloe Maddox leaves her life in LA to join the Boston Police Department, she wants nothing more than a fresh start, even if she does rebuff the friendly advances of her colleagues and spends her nights alone. She seems to be succeeding until the man who murdered her fianceé and left her for dead turns up at the precinct in connection with another case, and she must face the past she can’t outrun.
Detective Dana Blake uncovers Chloe’s secret and convinces her to testify against the dangerous psychopath. When he is released on bail, Dana and Chloe take temporary refuge in a safe house where Chloe tries to keep her distance despite their undeniable attraction.
Forced to flee, they soon find themselves running from a serial killer intent on recapturing his prey. Except this time, he has his eye on Dana, too.
