A child she can't forget...
FBI agent Alexa Vega wakes in an Atlanta hospital with no memory of how she got there. Except for brief flashes of a little girl's image, she can't remember anything, including the assignment that led to her brutal attack. The only person she feels she can trust is the man who saved her--Dr. Robert Livingston.
In his care she begins to recover...and to fall for him. Those feelings are returned, because Robert hasn't been able to stop thinking about Alexa. But as her memory returns, Alexa knows she has to finish what she started. She has to track down her attackers. It's the only way she can save a child she's sworn to protect.
She's determined to succeed, even if it means losing everything else--including Robert's love.

When Jane awakens she informs him she is Alexa Vega though her memory is fuzzy. Over a short time she regains much of what she lost and informs the caring doctor that she has been working undercover collecting information against a deranged dangerous Russian mobster. However, she also knows she left behind a child Evie who needs her help, as the girl's only friend is her stuffed animal Felix, and her psychopath mobster of a father is apt to harm perhaps kill his daughter.
This is a deep police procedural romance starring two dedicated professionals in different fields falling in love; yet the story line is owned by "Bambi" as Lexie knows Evie is in deep trouble because she failed to save the child, but plans to make a second go at it. Readers will be hooked from the opening sequence until the final confrontation as Anna DeStefano provides an exciting tale powered by a child in need.
