After a vicious attack, Paladin Hunter Fitzsimon is no longer the warrior he once was. So when he's offered a transfer to the small Pacific Northwest town of Justice Point, he takes it. Tate Justice needs a tenant for the apartment above her garage, but when Hunter shows up, something about him unsettles her-and it's not just his sexy grin. When he doesn't return home one evening and Tate finds him left for dead after another Kalith attack, she realizes how much he means to her. And as the Kalith and the Paladins battle it out, Hunter begins to realize he'd do anything to keep her, too.
