"Restless and impulsive, Bruno Ranieri has the temperament to fit right in with the McClouds. And just like the McCloud brothers, Bruno has a dangerous past to contend with--one that's about to come crashing back into his life. Bruno Ranieri has always lived at a chaotic pace, and that goes double lately. Since his uncle's untimely demise, Bruno is working himself to the bone, trying to keep his nose clean and save the family business.

So when exotically beautiful Lily Parr sashays into his all-night restaurant, claiming to be on the run from mysterious assassins, Bruno starts to wonder if sleep deprivation is finally getting to him. Especially when Lily implies that Bruno is involved. But the violence that accompanies her arrival is no illusion.

Officials claimed it was suicide, but Lily's gut--and the savage murder attempt she barely escaped afterwards--say different. Snippets of information led Lily to Bruno's door ... and his magnetic charisma compelled her right into his bed. But there are cold-blooded killers on her heels, with resources as limitless as their cruelty. Running won't help, not when the biggest threat is the terrifying secret lurking in Bruno and Lily's pasts.

Publisher's Weekly Review

Bestseller McKenna strikes gold again with the steamy eighth romantic suspense (after Fade to Midnight) in the McCloud Brothers series. Bad dreams haunt Bruno Ranieri, Kev McCloud's adopted brother, and he's half-convinced they're real. Hooking up with sexy Lily Parr gives Bruno relief from nightmares, unless you count the three people who attack Lily. Bruno kills them and the pair take off. Lily's convinced her drug-addicted father's recent murder somehow links her past with Bruno's, but unraveling the truth calls for reinforcements, and soon the ex-military Special Forces McCloud brothers are facing down a super-scientist and his humanoid robots. Lots of references to previous McCloud escapades and characters obscure the thriller plot for those who haven't read the earlier novels, but the riveting story, frequent sex scenes, and believable science-fictional details will keep readers fully engaged.
