Olivia has a tough job of not only protecting Wade from a stalker but also his daughter. The stalker has been upping up the ante and getting bolder over time and now Olivia has to identify and find him before he causes any more harm. She has a troubled past that she has kept well-hidden though this means that she never lets anyone into her life. But she cannot help it with Wade and his daughter who she soon finds herself irresistibly drawn to.
