"The twists and turns of the story unfold and I found myself so engrossed, I burned dinner! I had nightmares like any good story with evil in it will give. I seriously love the way MariaLisa writes and I shudder to think of the research she had to do to create this thrilling, yet caring story. The epilogue will blow your mind!" Gail, Goodreads (#2)

Alace Sweets might have discovered her happily ever after in the life she’s building with her new husband, but that doesn't mean she's stopped serving her own brand of justice. Turns out, there are plenty more people who've come to believe in the rules of Alace. Maybe she can have it all.
When a current gig is complicated by something unexpected and her husband’s best friend is involved, Alace has to pull out all the stops to determine the right solution before more young women die. Her answer? Owen Marcus.
Ex-military intelligence, ex-rogue government asset, Owen stoked the flames of his hatred for human traffickers during his missions in Central America. He’s secretive, paranoid, struggling with PTSD—and the only one Alace trusts to do the job as well as she could.
Now, if she can just keep from killing him before they unravel a mystery, take out a serial killer, and save the life of at least one friend…
Revenge really IS sweet. ~Alace Sweets.
