Now Gabriel has everything — the clothes, the money, the reputation. Except the one thing he’s lusted over for ten years: revenge.
The legacy of Elise Bettencourt’s parents hangs over her like a threat. She may have been a child when the deaths happened, but that doesn’t absolve her of blame. Or of guilt.
When Gabriel walks into her bakery, he’s a man on a mission — first, to seduce Elise’s brains out. Second, to use her like the key she is to the secrets of his past.
But using Elise to get to the Bettencourt name comes with its own dangers. Not least of all because Gabriel appears to be developing a craving that only her sweetness can satisfy.

From fingerprints to DNA, everything points to Liam, who must race against time and his department to uncover the truth—even if that truth is his own guilt.
