This is book 4 of 4 in the Bishop Security Series.

It is important to note that each book can be read as a standalone. They have overlapping characters and are set in the same world but can easily be read separately.

A freelance reporter is murdered in Philadelphia.

A tech billionaire is poisoned in a Tampa restaurant.

Are these seemingly random killings connected?

Former CIA officer Finn McIntyre is out of options. After being captured and tortured on a SEAL mission, he was left with a scarred face and a mountain of rage. Years of working undercover in a drug cartel have only augmented his ruthlessness and isolation. His best friends at Bishop Security have all but given up on him, and the one woman—the only woman—he has ever loved has let him go. Finn has to get his head straight or end up dead.

With no one to turn to and nowhere to go, Finn takes off and finds himself in the strange town of Purgatory, West Virginia. The whistle stop is haunted and entrancing, and soon Finn finds himself with a home rehab project, an older neighbor in need of his help, a judgmental wolf, and a loitering little boy. Purgatory is a town full of secrets, and Finn is determined to unravel them while exorcising his own demons.

Charlotte Devlin—Twitch to those who know her—fell in love with Finn seven years ago. Before he was captured, before he became an angry, heartless man, before he discarded her like a regrettable one-night stand. If she hadn’t welcomed him into her bed that final time, maybe she could forget about him. Unfortunately, the baby growing inside of her makes that impossible.

To make matters worse, Twitch can’t stop the constant anxious feeling that she is being watched. When it becomes clear that someone is trying to harm her—and that the suspect is much more than an obsessed stalker—Twitch is forced to turn to the one man who can help her uncover what is really going on and keep her safe.

Finn and Charlotte finally realize their love was meant to be, but can they stop a madman threatening to take it all away?

OMG!!!!!! I have been impatiently waiting for this book! Finally Finn’s story has been told and I have to say it was an absolutely fantastic story.

Finn is a dark broody man with a very dark past. After being held captive and disfigured, Finn begins to fall into a deep dark spiral of anger and pain. His only shining light was thoughts of Charlotte (Twitch) Devlin. But even her light cannot pull him from drowning in the darkness.

Twitch has had enough. Finn has finally broken her. She is shattered and she is finally closing the door on the relationship that was Finn. Now she must move on and heal. But when she gets the feeling of being watched, she finds herself in the middle of a stalker situation.

Finn is on a journey to try and fix his head in a remote town. This town is special. He just doesn’t realize how special it is. In the haunting town of Purgatory, Finn begins to find his way. A case comes across the Bishop Security desk and all the dots connect back to Twitch. Will the team figure out what is going on? Or will she be the next body found?

This book was absolutely amazing. Finn’s character was everything I imagined it would be and so much more. He was dark, broody, menacing and strong. But on top of all that darkness he is a very beautiful and loving man. Twitch and him have amazing chemistry. Their love is strong and unbreakable. “Twin Flames”

Finn’s story was the most beautiful story. I had so many emotions going through my head. I was mad. I cried. I laughed. I felt joy. From the very first page I was hooked and devoured each page like an addict needing a fix. I could not put the book down. It was definitely my favorite in the series. I am not saying the other books are not good. Because they are amazing, each one gets better and better.

So if you haven’t read any of these books then you are missing out.
