THE MARSHAL'S MISSIONWorking undercover at a day care, Deputy Marshal Daci Marlowe has one mission: protect a mother and her infant son from the woman's fugitive ex-boyfriend. But when someone seems more focused on killing Daci, she and her partner, child-advocate attorney Jax Williams, must figure out why before it's too late. With her family's tragic past and her experience raising her siblings, Daci can't help but relate to the woman and child--even as she's drawn to Jax. Daci knows that Jax has his own harrowing past, though, one that makes the handsome defender keep her at arm's length. But with each attempt on Daci's life, Jax comes closer to both Daci and a dangerous truth.
