Forensic specialist Kyra Elliott faces the challenge of her career. From scattered skeletal remains she must identify a serial killer who's gotten away with murder, and his young victims. Help comes in the tall, dark, handsome form of an old friend--and secret crush--FBI investigator Joshua Richards. Considered a loose cannon, Josh has been "loaned" to Kyra, and he doesn't like it. Yet as they close in on the killer, Kyra has to trust her hostile partner with her life-- and her heart.
