Nell Calder was a plump, nondescript woman whose world revolved around her four-year-old daughter, and her ambitious executive husband. While on an island outside of Greece, during a business party meant to propel her husband up the corporate ladder, she is brutally attacked. Her husband and child are killed.
Nell survives, miraculously, but without the desire to live…until she meets Nicholas Tanek, an ex criminal who feels responsible for what happened. Nicholas provides Nell with a new face, a new identity, and a reason to live: revenge. He informs her that the man who attacked her is above the law, and will never be punished.
Determined to avenge her daughter, Nell travels with Nicholas to his compound in Idaho. As he trains her in the art of deadly combat, they find themselves growing closer together. Nicholas wants only to protect her, but Nell cannot let go of the past. Not while her daughter's murderer still walks free.
