Alice Amaro just wants freedom and to explore, but what she quickly learns is that having her freedom comes at a price... A price that Alice will pay for--with her life... ************************* Alice loves life and yearns to find more of the wonders she clearly sees-which is easier said then done when your father is Giovanni Amaro. Finally, Alice breaks free from the tight confines of her overprotective family and goes to college. Just as she feels that her life is really and truly beginning-something horrible happens. Blood is spilled and lives are cruelly snuffed out, resulting in her meeting Ethan Carter-a private investigator-who awakens something deep, burning and electric in her soul. She is weary of these feelings, though, because someone waits-watching and if she doesn't trust the right person it could cost her everything-including her life... Book 2.
