Special Agent Jackson Barrington was hired by Jeff Williams to kill his wife Eden McBride while he was working undercover to bring down a dangerous drug cartel. After killing Williams and saving Eden’s life, he later crashes Michael Stone and Eden’s wedding and reveals his true identity. With Eden safely married and happy at last, he flies home to Barrington Ranch in Dallas to visit his beloved grandmother Devon Brooks Barrington on New Year’s Day. Hours later she dies in his arms after sharing a bizarre prophecy with him regarding a woman who will fall in love with him. Not just any woman. Lily Stone Beaumont.
Lily Stone’s perfect marriage was just a façade. After suffering a humiliating divorce which results in her ex-husband Adam Beaumont being awarded custody of her son AJ and her retaining custody of her twin daughters Allie and Alyssa, she moves to her hometown Marysville, California, in order to start a new life. However, her ex’s increasingly disturbing behavior concerns her, and she begins to investigate him.
She’s not the only one investigating Adam Beaumont. Special Agent Jackson Barrington just caught a new case…
When the house eventually grew quiet, Jackson expected Lily to appear on her back porch, glass of red wine in hand, but tonight she took him aback by marching up to him and declaring in an imperious tone of voice, “I know who you are. You’re the ki…”
“Killer, yes,” Jackson interrupted with a dismissive wave of his hand. “We know. I hope your new sister-in-law clarified that I only killed one person that day. Jeff Williams, who damn well deserved it after he shot his pregnant wife.”
Ignoring the deepness of his voice with its Southern accent, his spectacular body, and vivid blue eyes, Lily continued, “She did. Why are you in Marysville, Agent? More specifically, why are you hanging around my girls at their school?”
Jackson mentally sighed. He wondered when that bit of information would come to her attention. “Well, Mrs. Beaumont…”
She bristled and cut him off. “Don’t call me that. I no longer use my married name. Miss Stone, if you please.”
I don’t please, he thought. His agitation with her served to make his Southern drawl more pronounced. “Well, lady,” he countered with a caustic edge to his voice, “after two years undercover, my supervisor transferred me to the San Francisco field office, and I’ve been training the officers at the McAllister Forensic lab in behavioral analysis.”
“Why aren’t you living in San Francisco? Why are you living next door to me?” she asked suspiciously.
“I like the view.” He tipped an imaginary Stetson.
Lily gritted her teeth. “Why are you constantly at the school?”
