Killers don’t fall in love…

Kirsten thought her life was over when she met Mac, ‘the Jeweler’, a government-sanctioned dispatcher. Instead, it was just beginning.

Admittedly, being kidnapped, tied up, and tortured with sexual pleasure might not have been the best beginning for a relationship, but their instant connection couldn’t be denied.
