It's not that Micayla Lange is afraid of the clinking she hears on the first floor of the empty mansion where she's housesitting for her Uncle Nicco. She's a cop, after all. But she's alone on New Year's Eve, wearing pajamas and wielding a Glock 22 as she zeroes in on the source of the sound: Nicco's private office.
Jason Davis steals things for a living, so unexpected developments are a natural part of the job. Getting caught red-handed by a hot police officer in a gangster's deserted house is just one more twist in the game. Like finding incriminating photos in Nicco Marino's safe, only to discover the cop has gotten a good look at his face. Unfortunately for Mick, she also got a good look at the pictures. Her “uncle” might love her like family, but she doesn't like her chances if he knows she's seen evidence that implicates him in the murder of a city councilman. Which is why she's having a hard time reconciling her professional instincts with what has become an inescapable fact: She's about to help a criminal get away with a suitcase full of stolen money. And she's going with him. As their adventure heats up and their enemies close in, Mick is torn between her duty to the force and the combustible passion engulfing her and her unlikely partner in crime. She'll have to turn Jason in sooner or later…if they survive. But will they ever get a second chance at love?
