Alex was just an adventurous kid when he saved a young girl's life. Years later, sudden bouts of recurring nightmares drove him to find her, only to have her ripped from his life by a lunatic. The one time he needed help, he was forced to call on Lucien; a criminal, a spy, and a man he despises. Lucien is driven to help by guilt and obsession, and in the process, he is willing to risk his own life and betray a madman he once called his brother. Stolen from the banks of the Tennessee River, she was swept to the war torn streets of Old Montreal. Is Alex's love strong enough to protect her once more? Not from the grip of the madman who took her, but from the arms of Lucien, the criminal, who saved her.
