Hunter Wesley Thornton-Payne III has perfected the role of bored playboy, which allows him to operate as a covert agent for BAD where he moves silently among social circles gorged with old money, new money and the criminally desperate to join either rank. Growing up in a family that turned dysfunctional into a living art, Hunter holds his bachelor status closer than a lover and despises the media that feeds off anyone weak enough to give the jackals a sniff of blood. He attends a fundraiser for the Renaissance Women's Center hosted by Chicago's elite intending to pick up information from a mole on the inside of the dangerous Fratelli de il Sovrano organization. The night yields a bonus when he sees a man key to Hunter's personal vendetta over a fallen agent. But first he has to find and terminate an assassin who is killing innocent Americans connected to an upcoming arms trade agreement - such as Hunter's family - the UK prime minister opposes. BAD believes the assassin is an MI6 operative gone rogue then begins to question if he's following orders. Hunter's mission takes an unexpected turn when a woman he knew one memorable night in his past steps into the line of fire with her own agenda, wrecking a straightforward mission from one of protecting his country and family to saving the only woman to break down his defenses.

Abby Blanton's mother is in failing health, and shouldn't be. Something happened to her mother at the Renaissance Women's Center during a visit ten days ago, but no one will talk to her or help find a donor with her mother's rare blood. Abby turns to her investigative skills as a television news journalist at a Chicago fundraiser where she leaves with more questions than she brought and becomes the focus of a killer with a twisted sense of honor. As if the night at the fundraiser hadn't gone bad enough, Abby encountered a man she never forgot - and never wanted to see again. But Hunter Thornton-Payne isn't so easy to dismiss, especially when it becomes clear they are after the same man with opposing goals. With her mother sliding away daily, hiding from a killer is out of the question for Abby who is determined to find out what is going on inside the women's center that is killing women. She begins to realize Hunter isn't the superficial playboy he shows the world, but a dangerous operative with a tortured past whose success depends on killing the best chance her mother has to survive.
