In Houston, after Eric Riggs was convicted of murdering his wife Tammy, the state took away his daughter Mackenzie and gave her to nasty foster parents who plan to adopt her. Tammy’s Uncle Travis, an ex-con, believes his brother is innocent and wants to prevent the adoption by proving his assertion. He anxiously turns to Project Justice, but after the carpenter mangles the online form, he goes to Daniel Logan’s home.

Personal assistant Elena Marquez tells Travis that Daniel refuses to meet with him; as he makes no exceptions to his rules except for death row inmates; besides he must deal with a potential nuclear reactor leak. Desperately Travis abducts Elena to force her boss to help his sibling. Shocked almost as much as he is by his action, Elena knows instinctively he will not harm her. Although not her bailiwick Elena decides to help Travis save his family even as they fall in love.

This is a thrilling romantic suspense with the kidnapping bringing the lead couple together even if she throws a wrench into his spur of the moment action. Fast-paced, readers will appreciate this exciting contemporary as the ex-con and the Cuban-American fall in love while her family, work associates and friends want him locked away.
