At a benefit dinner, community activist Maria Cervantes overhears two men plotting a terrorist attack that could rock Miami to its core. But before she can alert authorities, she's almost killed in a massive explosion--and wakes up in a hospital with no memory of what happened. As the sole survivor of the attack, she is now a person of interest to the NSA--and especially to Agent Cade O'Reilly. Because Maria is the one woman Cade has never been able to forget. Years ago, they were closer than either was willing to admit--until Cade disappeared when Maria needed him most. Now he's sticking by her, whether she likes it or not. Because the memories locked inside her mind could hold vital clues to the next attack. Because terrorists want her dead--and because he never wants to let her go again.
