Kate Stanton’s former son-in-law, Dr. Eric Devane, is a prominent Beverly Hills doctor who’s now engaged to beautiful Brooke Connelly, only a few years older than his eldest daughter. With the impending arrival of his and Brooke’s baby through a surrogate – who happens to be his eldest daughter’s best friend – Eric’s life has become very complicated, but not nearly as complicated as his fiancée’s past. Four years ago, Brooke Connelly made the biggest mistake of her life when she betrayed her mobster boyfriend by tipping off the intended victim of his next hit. Her timely intervention had nearly cost Brooke her life after she was beaten and left for dead by her boyfriend in retaliation for her betrayal. In desperation, Brooke turned to one of the most powerful men in Las Vegas for protection – unaware that her arrangement with Clint Staebler was non-negotiable and permanent. Brooke has since relocated to L.A., where she’s the general manager of a popular restaurant and nightclub, both owned by Clint Staebler. With her recent engagement to Eric, Brooke is determined to cut all ties to her past but the cards seem to be stacked against her when Eric finds out about her past relationship with Clint Staebler and demands to know where her loyalties lie. Caught between a murderer and a man who refuses to let her go at all costs, Brooke plays her one trump card in the hopes that it will be enough to sever her ties to her past, once and for all. In this sweeping murder mystery set against the glitzy backdrop of Vegas and the powerhouse that is Hollywood, past mistakes are never forgotten and revenge is what makes it all worthwhile…
