Six years ago, military strategist and leader of a black ops unit Ethan Drake nearly captured Christian Briggs, a world-renowned drug dealer and arms trader. But the criminal eluded him during a disastrous operation, resulting in the death of Ethan’s brother, an act Ethan has never recovered from, vowing to bring Briggs to justice. Frankie shows up in the crosshairs of Ethan’s scope while she is on the trail of an identity thief wiping out accounts of elderly community members. The thief stole the identity of Christian Briggs, raising red flags and attracting Ethan.
Both teams reluctantly band together to bring down Briggs. Even though Ethan believes Frankie may be working for Briggs, he chooses to work side by side, battling an attraction for Frankie he has never felt for any other woman. Frankie fights Ethan every step of the way, refusing to forgive his deception, even when her heart tells her otherwise. Releasing rats, portraying a hooker, and allowing a grandma to plant a tracking device on Briggs, leads them to realize not everyone is who they seem to be.
