There’s no best-by date for revenge.
Wealthy and beautiful Shay Lassiter runs a prestigious foundation, but her connections and resources were worthless when her fiancé tried to murder her. Now, she’s guarding her heart and using her knack for reading people’s intentions – both good and evil – to guide her. But when the foundation’s clients start dying, she must turn to the new man in her life…one who’s giving her mixed signals.
Computer specialist and ex-cop Roman Chandler has a secret. It involves Shay and could ruin the fragile relationship he’s building with her. Though he can’t tell her the truth, he needs to convince her to trust him. He fears that whoever is behind this is about to turn his vengeance on Shay…
And vengeance can be deadly.

Under Roman’s midnight blue gaze, Shay’s stomach churned with unanswered questions and delight. Of course he’d seen pictures of her. A quick Google search would have offered many pages to study. She wanted to take a longer look at his energy, but thought she’d better save her strength for when a deeper reading might be needed.
A strange sound had her turning to face Bernice.
Bernice opened her mouth to speak when she suddenly stopped, an odd look on her face. Her breath sucked in so loudly, Shay leaned closer in concern. “Bernice? What’s the matter?”
Shay studied her old friend, but Bernice’s face had turned ashen, her eyes locked on something behind Shay’s shoulder. Shay spun around, but there didn’t appear to be anything or anyone there. In fact, the only thing behind her was a wall. A blank wall.
“Bernice, talk to me. You’re scaring me.”
Bernice’s breathing appeared halted, her features frozen.
Shay leaned closer.
Jesus, she must be having a stroke. “We’ll get someone here to help you. Just please tell me what’s wrong.”
Bernice’s mouth worked. Still no sound came out.”
Roman bent to peer into Bernice’s face. “I’ll get help.” Roman took off.
Shay didn’t bother to watch him go, her gaze was locked on poor Bernice. As Shay raised her hand to call for help, her arm was grabbed. She stared, surprised to see Bernice’s bronzed nails cutting into her soft skin.
“Bernice?” Shay peered inside her friend’s dark, blind eyes. “Hang on. Help is coming.”
Somewhere behind her, she could hear rapidly approaching footsteps. Thank God.
Shay stared into Bernice’s blank, black and bottomless eyes, and Bernice stared back. Shay’s heart squeezed in fear. “Bernice, damn it, are you in there? Please answer me.”
Shay willed Bernice’s eyes to return to normal. Willed them to blink. To move. To do something.
Then something happened. Inside, deep inside, Bernice blinked. A clear movement that Shay could see and understand.
Except for one thing.
On the surface, Bernice’s eyelids never moved.
